Industrial Shredders and Waste Grinders That Cut Big Problems Down to Size

The 3-SHRED, 3-SHRED-2 & 4-SHRED-2 waste grinders quickly cut problem solids down to size. These industrial shredders have two rows of sharp, steel cutters that rotate slowly and with incredibly high torque to turn large troublesome solids into small pieces.

The 3-SHRED is a versatile mid-sized industrial shredder that reduces troublesome solids. These waste grinders are designed to easily cut through debris that typically causes problems such as wood, glass, fish processing waste, food waste, and much more.

The 3-SHRED-2 is for applications with really tough materials. This model comes equipped with a 10 hp motor providing almost double the cutter force to take those really tough solids down to size.  Available in 18” and 24” stack heights.

The 4-SHRED-2 is designed for some of the most difficult grinding jobs. Strong shafts and heavy-duty seals allow for high-impact solids loading, shredding items down to size. This size reduction equipment has been proven in numerous applications including shredding for recycling, preconditioning of organics for waste-to-energy operations, hazardous waste disposal, seafood processing and destruction of off-specification or contraband products, just to name a few.

The 3-SHRED, 3-SHRED-2 & 4-SHRED-2 size reduction equipment can be configured to meet your specific application needs. Various types of standard cutters to optimize throughput and particle size desired. These industrial shredders can also be arranged for multi-stage grinding – turning large solids into tiny particles. These tough industrial shredders are built to handle both wet and dry waste. These grinders have also received multiple certifications from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) including a product TYPE Approval and a certification of compliance for meeting MARPOL Annex V.
