G Series Industrial Shredder Brochure
The G Series General Purpose Industrial Shredders are single shaft shredders with a powerful two speed swing ram design eliminating the risk of blocking and wearing out of internal guide rails. The machine is very versatile and can be used for shredding of all kinds of plastic materials and is well suited for plastics industries. The 457 mm diameter rotors and widths ranging from 850 to 2000 mm are driven by one or two oversized gearboxes. The hydraulic power pack is well integrated into the machine housing to save space and protect it from damage, but still easy to access or remove for maintenance. The standard E rotor features the proven Virtus knife and knife holder design, as well as outboard bearings and a hydraulically-operated screen cradle. The industrial shredders can be tailored to various applications with cooling or hard facing and other wear options.
The G Series General Purpose Industrial Shredders have been designed for a wide array of applications and industries like in house and general plastics recycling, electronic waste and post-consumer waste handling. Plastic materials can be all kinds, like plastic lumps, pipes, woven bags; electronic waste like cables and integrated circuit boards; and organic material like paper, wood and other organics. Depending on plastic material, the shredded material size (defined by the shredder screen size) and the post-shred processing requirements the shredded plastic can be directly used or go into the next step of size reduction for example in a Heavy-duty granulator.

The industrial shredders use concave ground square knives, producing high quality output. The cutters can be turned after a side is worn out.
All Virtus shredders are equipped with a large diameter flat rotor. The knives are fixed in special knife holders fitted in machined pockets. Optional weld on hard facing is available for abrasive applications.
The G series industrial shredders benefit from sturdy ram construction incorporating heavy-duty guide bearings and universal couplings for reliable operation.
