Shredder Throughput

Shredder throughput is the key factor to determine which size of shredder suits you best. Also it contributes a lot to the investment return of purchasing a shredder. So it is quite important to know the throughput of your shredder and which will affect the throughput level.


What affects your shredder throughput?

The shredder throughput depends on many factors. Below are some main factors for your easy reference:

1. material

Same shredder shreds different type of material and you can get different output. For example, if you use double shaft shredder to shred plastic film and metal bins, you will receive quite different throughput result.

2. the form of material

Different forms(strips, long or short pieces, blocks or bales, etc.) of material will result in different shredder throughput and also it may affect the material feeding solution and hopper size.

3. screen mesh size

Bigger screen mesh size allows more bulky particles to fall quickly. Thus, it is an important factor to determine the throughput.

4. material feeding speed

If shredder is always waiting for material feeding, it is not so efficient solution. Maybe you should choose a smaller capacity shredder. Or you need to speed up your material feeding.

5. the moisture rate of the material

Same material but with different moisture rate also affects the shredder throughput.

6. rotor and knife design

Different rotor and knife design makes different throughput. For example, shredding PET bottles by single shaft shredder and double shaft shredder is in different capacity result.

So it is quite important to describe your material in details so that shredder manufacturer can clearly know the condition of your material. This is quite important to select a right shredder which is designed for your specific application in order to reach your shredder throughput goals.
