Features and Benefits

  • The TG5000E is equipped with a 500 hp (373 kW) Weg totally enclosed fan-cooled electric motor to power the mill. A separate 60 hp (44.7 kW) electric motor powers the pump for the hydraulic circuits, while a 2 hp (1.5 kW) electric motor powers the fan to cool the hydraulic system.
  • The motor starter panel provides options to configure a control system that best fits your application - whether that’s a soft-start or VFD panel.
  • The duplex drum offers proven cutting performance, and reversible hammers and tips nearly double the wear life of single-sided designs and simplify daily maintenance.
  • The patented thrown object restraint system (TORS) reduces the amount and distance of thrown objects, and has a smooth underside for better material flow.
  • Monitor real-time performance and data via the on-rig display or remote control.
  • Designed to handle more production with less clogging, the 36" (91.4 cm) wide continuous undermill discharge conveyor system offers optimum speed and capacity.
