Industrial Shredders and Waste Grinders Easily Condition Tough Solids

The 3-SHRED and 3-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 drill cuttings, fish/seafood waste, food waste, and much more. The 3-SHRED-2 is for applications with really tough materials. This model comes equipped with severe duty seals and a 10 hp motor providing almost double the cutting force to take those really tough solids down to size.

The 3-SHRED and 3-SHRED-2 can be configured to meet your specific application needs. Various types of standard cutters to optimize throughput and particle size desired are available. These industrial shredders are built to handle both wet and dry waste and can be arranged for multi-stage grinding – turning large solids into tiny particles. These grinders have 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.
