It is versatile shredding equipment suitable for processing a wide range of materials to a uniform particle size. A replaceable screen is mounted underneath the cutting rotor. Various sized screens are available for you to conveniently control the shredded particle size to fit your specific needs.


Industrial double shaft shredder


Double Shaft Shredding machine also popular as Dual Shear Shredding machine or Twin/Double Shaft Shredding machine, employs two counter rotary cutting shafts that rotate into each other at low speed under high torque. There are hooks on the shear blades which grab the fed-in material, and then along with the rotation movement, the blades cut, shear, tear, slice and rip apart a variety of materials into smaller pieces. This type of shredding equipment generally has no sizing screens. The output particles are typically in strips. Each cutting blade’s thickness which is customizable determines final particles’ width directly. So this twin shaft shredding machine is usually available in bulky item reduction, product destruction or primary shredding where requires particle size variation.


Common features of single shaft shredder and double shaft shredder

Both Single Rotor Shredding machine and Dual Shear Shredding machine feature PLC control system and automatic reverse rotation.

And once jam is discharged, shredding machine will automatically resume normal shredding operation. This auto reverse not only protects machine itself from overloading and breaking, but also guarantees a continuous and streamlined shredding operation.
