Talk to Waste Initiatives today to find out more about our waste & recycling solutions.
Waste Initiatives’ shredders are heavy-duty machines designed for industrial applications and can be configured to efficiently process a wide range of materials, including: paper, cardboard, plastic, ferrous and non-ferrous metal and tyres.
Shredders in either high or low speed usually have a perforated screen which governs the final shredded product size by not allowing product through until it has been shredded small enough by the rotating cutters against the static cutter. Single shaft shredders are Top loading.
Shaft shear type shredders are almost always slow speed, with the product exiting the shredder almost entirely determined by the width of the cutters. Shear type Two shaft shredders come in Top loading and throughfeed format.
High-volume shredders with sized output determined by perforated screen size. Often used in the plastic industry for in-house recycling through to waste processors shredding MSW and Waste-to-Energy plants. Rugged and reliable, these machines are available with high or low-speed configuration depending on processing material.
Our WT48200 is one of our most robust single shaft shredders capable of shredding a wide range of products. This very robust shredder has extra-large gearboxes for very high torque. Fitted with a sizing screen to control output size and a pendulum push in arm to ensure maximum cutting efficiency. The cutters can be rotated for extra life expectancy and more economical operation. This shredder is the ultimate in robust single shaft shredding for a wide range of recyclable products.
Slow-speed shredders for heavy duty size reduction. Particle size determined by width of the cutters and output at undetermined lengths. Can be used in principle size-reduction application where output sizes are not critical – ideal applications include abbatoirs, tyres & E-scrap.
Four Shaft shear type shredders have a perforated screen attached, which determines the product size exiting the shredder. The second two sets of cutters on the side shafts return any product unable to fit through the perforations in the screen back to the cutting chamber for reshredding. Product exiting a four shaft shredder is determined by the cutter width and the holes (perforations) in the screen. Four shaft shredders are fed vertically.
