Small Industrial Shredder That’s Tough on Waste

The 1-SHRED grinder is a compact shredder that is tough on solids. This small industrial shredder fits into areas with limited space requirements, while still providing the necessary power to cut down tough food waste, small bones, wood or even occasional flatware.

Two shafts of hardened steel cutters rotate at slow speed and high torque. They easily grind solid waste into small particles. Its small size makes it an ideal choice for integration into other OEM equipment like food waste digesters or pulpers.

Typical applications include food and animal processing plants, food waste disposal in hotels, casinos and restaurants. This grinder is ideal for use on ships or oil platforms to meet MARPOL food waste disposal requirements. This small industrial shredder can also work well in testing labs destroying plastic and glass vials used for specimen collection.
