The carpet shredding is conduct in one machine (1-shaft shredder). A high-speed plus high torque rotor crushes carpets into 40mm by 40mm particles. A pusher forces carpets to get in touch with the rotor. The workload is monitored so the pusher can retract to adjust the workload. The overall process is fully automated, but feeding shall be carried out manually. The shredder is simple in construction, easing the service and operation.
