General Description

The X Series Heavy-duty 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 heavy-duty shredder is very versatile and can be used for shredding of all kinds of input materials and is well suited for different industries. The 750 mm diameter rotors with widths ranging from 1500 to 3000 mm are driven by two oversized heavy-duty gearboxes. The low speed of 45 rpm guarantees a high torque and smooth operation. 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 proven E rotor, knife holder and knife designs are taken to new dimensions to conquer the most demanding applications and challenges. The shredders can be tailored to various applications advanced controls and hydraulics, hard facing and other wear options.


The X Series heavy-duty shredders have been designed for the most demanding and high throughput applications in recycling industries. The input materials can be all kinds of plastics, wood, paper, cardboard, e-waste, post-consumer waste, rubber, et cetera in various shapes and sizes. Typical input materials are: fridges, plastic purges, tires, plastic or wood pallets, bales, drums, barrels and so on. The output material size is defined by the installed screen and except in RDF (refuse derived fuels) applications the output material has to be processed further to achieve the desired final size. For the recycling of complete truck and tractor tires the T series is configured with special wear protection and knives.
