P Series Pipe/Profile Shredder Brochure

General Description

The P Series Pipe Profile shredders are the worlds first single shaft shredders able to handle large diameter reclaimed pipes up to 1200 mm without the need for pre cutting. Since their introduction they became the *per se* standard for pipe shredding and are used by the leading pipe manufacturers all over the world. More than 200 installations demonstrate our technological leadership in this industry and continuing innovation based on market demands and customer feedback. Depending on the pipe diameter the P rotor diameter and width range from 800 to 1500 mm. The standard hopper fits all pipe lengths of up to 6 m. The combination of advanced controls, low rotor speed and smooth hydraulics create a reliable and easy to use system.


The main focus of the P Series Pipe Profile shredders is the shredding of large diameter plastic pipes or bundles of smaller plastic pipes and profiles made from HDPE, PP and all kinds of PVC. Further the shredders can be used for recycling of other plastic parts, such as large plastic lumps, stacked wheelie bins and pallets. In combination with other Virtus size reduction equipment such as granulators and pulverizers we are able to provide a complete turn key recycling solution.
