What is an Industrial Shredding Machine?
Shredder or shredding machine is a piece of equipment that does rough size reduction for various materials such as paper, cardboard, biomass, wood, tire, plastic, metal, textile etc. It plays an important role in many applications including transportation, storage, manufacturing, recycling, waste management, security/ privacy protection and more. For big-size, hard or stubborn material, shredding is quite a necessary process before granulating in the recycling process, otherwise if granulating such difficult material directly without shredder, the granulating machine will easily get stuck or the blades will easily get damaged.
Do you know PROSINO shredding machine?
Classified by the different types of cutting systems adopted, there are single shaft shredder and double shaft shredder available in PROSINO shredder range.
Single Shaft Shredder (also known as Single Rotor Shredder) is equipped with one high-speed cutting rotor and a hydraulic driven horizontal pusher which pushes material towards the cutting rotor for achieving the most efficient size reduction performance. It is a piece of universal shredding equipment suitable for processing a wide range of materials into 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.
Two Shaft Shredder (also known as Dual Shear Shredder, Twin/Double Shaft Shredder) 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 and its width is directly determined by each cutting blade’s thickness which is customizable. This Twin Shaft Shredder is usually used in bulky item reduction, product destruction or primary shredding where particle size variation is allowed.
Both Single Rotor Shredder and Dual Shear Shredder feature PLC control system and automatic reverse rotation. The auto reverse functions any time in case of excessive quantities to shred or material that cannot be shred, cutters stop operating and automatically rotates in reverse direction to free up any jam, and once jam is discharged, shredder 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.
