The Limator is a versatile modular impact crusher designed to break up renewable resources, waste and foods for Biogas Plants. The infeed materials are broken up both by the movable crushing plates and the crusher tools and the momentum of the rotating materials. This system accomplishes gentle, yet maximum possible break-up of substrates and therefore produces a high gas yield.


The Limator can be operated continuously or in batch processing mode. Optionally it can be fitted with a double-wall crusher bin allowing the substrates to be easily pre-heated or cooled.

Amongst other things the Lindner Limator Impact Crusher is suitable for the high volume, low energy proccessing of:

  • Renewable Resources and Bio-Energy Crops
  • Maize- and Grass-Silage
  • Roots and Bulbs
  • Green Waste and Feed Remains
  • Straw and Foliage
  • Manure from Livestock Farming
  • Expired Food
  • Slaughterhouse Waste
  • Liquid Manure and Chicken Droppings

The Lindner Limator is constructed by Award winning Lindner Recyclingtech Gmbh, part of the Lindner group of companies whom through dedication, professionalism and motivation have become widely recognised as the specialists for shredding and volume reduction. All Lindner machinery in the UK is backed up by MachTech Services, providing sales consultation, installation, training and service and maintenance by our own mechanical and electrical engineering teams.

The Lindner Limator will improve your Anareobic digestion or Biogas plant by:-

  • Increasing the gas yield through improved pulping of substrate
  • Extending the range of substrates that can be processed.
  • Lower proccessing times resulting in lower energy consumption
  • Extensive prevention of floating layers
  • Shorter pauses and therefore shorter fermentation times
  • Increase of substrate throughput without changing plant technology
  • Stabilized processing in fermentation tank by a more homogenous feed
  • Fewer additives for fermentation process required
  • Reduction of floor residue in fermentation tank
  • Improved handling of digestate in fermentation tank and at discharge
  • Possibility of pre-heating and cooling of substrate
