Between the cutting elements is a space of adjustable size between which the bags with the waste are made to pass. The rotation of the rotors caused by the actuation of a gear motor installed outside makes the bags introduced in the inlet to be ripped by the pressure exerted between the rotor blades or between the rotor blades and the fixed counter blade installed in the equipment frame, releasing the material contained in the bags on the inner walls of the equipment. 1 TYPES The bag openers are classified according to the following criteria: • Number of rotors.
