Our Metal Recycling Division provides electrical and control system engineering for metal shredding and separation operations. We are an industry leader with over 500 1500hp to 10,000hp installations around the world. Our Metal Recycling division specializes in power management, data acquisition, co-pilot systems, and water injection systems. We provide complete ferrous and non-ferrous control systems, shredder system upgrades, control houses, control chairs and our exclusive line of Intelli-Shred™ product.
Pinnacle control panels are built to the highest quality standards in the industry, with components from the world’s leading manufacturers, including Allen-Bradley, Square-D, Siemens and Cutler Hammer. We have an onsite panel fabrication facility, where we can build industrial control panels using our full panel design and engineering service to meet all project requirements.
Pinnacle Engineering offers custom built applications for operator control rooms, power distribution, motor control, and hydraulic rooms. We offer many different interior options, as well, to fit your project perfectly.
Pinnacle's Intelligent Water System is designed to reduce visible emissions from your scrap metal shredder. It easily pipes to your existing spray bars to provide rotor spray, feed roll spray and rotor flood water. The water system is designed to be compact, rugged and provides seamless integration into Pinnacle Engineering's control systems.
Pinnacle Engineering’s Intelli-Shred Co-Pilot™ is a proven shredder feed roll control software system designed to automatically adjust the speed and position (raise and lower) of the feed rolls based upon the loaded condition of the shredder. All of this is done with little to no interaction from the operator, providing many benefits to the operator and your operation.
The Intelli-Shred Wireless technology system was developed by Pinnacle's R&D department to provide substantial installation cost savings along with greater flexibility for process changes or expansions. Pinnacle Engineering's Wire-Less ™ is a proven wireless platform that was developed to be the most rugged, flexible and cost-effective automation system available.
Stored in a standard SQL database structure, site information can be retrieved and reviewed at a future time or used in available trend and query functions as needed. A daily report is generated and printed detailing information pertinent to the shredder operation. Custom reports can be created based on client needs.
These reports are also stored on the server with web access available through the Active Factory web interface.
Electricity is typically a major operating expense for metal processing facilities. Pinnacle Engineering's power management system is designed specifically for controlling the energy costs of operating a shredder system. Power monitoring, power reporting and semand limiting technologies allow maximizing shredder throughput while conserving energy peaks and demand charges.
