A fiberglass shredder is a recycling machine used to cut objects made of fiberglass or fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) into smaller pieces. Unlike plastic granulators, fiber glass shredders are designed specifically for recycling larger plastic waste, like fiberglass scrap, insulations, mannequins, pipes, turbines, boats, carpets, fabrics, storage tanks, and construction materials.
They are usually too big for a granulator to process, therefore a fibreglass shredder comes in handy.

A fiberglass is a super-strong synthetic material with a high tensile strength starting from 4500MPa, but a low compressive strength at 1500MPa. Throughput of fiber glass shredder ranges between 300kg/hr and 6000kg/hr, based on the configuration of the materials and machine model selection. The final output size is 40mm.
Two shaft shredder can be a perfect choice for shredding thick-walled fiberglass products. Why? During shredding, it compresses materials to disintegrate fiberglass. This approach generates the less dust comparing to a single shaft shredder.
A granulator can follow up the shredder to further downsize the shredded particles to 5mm. Next, a double bag collection stores all final particles.
Humans exposure to fiberglass will irritate the eyes, skin, and respiratory system. Wiscon is well aware of that and takes measures. During the operation of fibreglass shredder, there is much dust amid in the air as the fibreglass is broken down. To prevent possible explosion and air contamination, we run an air ventilation system to expel harmful fiberglass in the air.
