General Description

The V Series Big Volume Shredders are single shaft shredders for the plastics industry with a large internal volume. The redesigned hydraulic pusher system creates about 35% more space in the cutting chamber while increasing the power and speed of the ram itself. The shredders are equipped with a 457 mm diameter Virtus E rotor with widths ranging from 1200 to 2000 mm. As on the G Series shredders, the rotor is driven via an oversized gearbox. The completely closed welded steel housing increases the stability and avoids material spillage. The big volume industrial shredder inherits all of the advantages of the Virtus knife and knife holder design as well as standard features such as outboard bearings, hydraulic screen cradle, it’s easy maintainability and advanced controls.


The big volume industrial shredders have been designed for big volume parts such as plastic IBCs, plastic pallets, big plastic barrels and large scale biomass material. While it can be used for in-house recycling operations, it is also versatile enough to be used for general recycling in the post-consumer plastic waste and wood industry. Like all Virtus industrial shredders the big volume shredders can be equipped with a wear package for processing of highly abrasive or filled materials.
