General Description

The L series lump shredders are single shaft shredders with a tangential infeed to eliminate the need for a hydraulic feeding system. The space saving and maneuverable design combined with the “plug and play” controls make this machine very flexible and ready to go in no time. Like its bigger brothers in the G series they are equipped with outboard bearings, 310 mm diameter flat E rotors with 600 or 850 mm width driven by an oversized geared motor. Utilizing the proven Virtus knife holder and knife design. The user-friendly design makes cleaning and maintenance work a breeze. The low speed of 60 rpm combined with the compact design of the lump shredders makes it possible to shred lumps at a relatively low noise level. The machines can be fed manually or by conveyor, material discharge can be done via conveyor or into a drop box.


The L Series lump shredders have been designed for in house recycling of small plastic lumps and cutoffs, e-waste, medical waste, test lab parts and pieces, as well as a wide variety of biomass, wood and paper. The typical input materials are small- and medium-sized plastic cakes such as head waste. The plastic material can be shred to reduce the volume or processed further in a granulator to be re introduced into the production process immediately. The lump shredder also can be used to destroy sensitive products or to recycle small batches of low volume products to avoid contamination of the main product line.
