Steel drum shredder allows to downsize a whole metallic drum with covers and liners. When a metal drum reaches its service time, it costs a fortune to store and transport it in bulk.
Luckily, Wiscon Envirotech’s shredders (e.g. two shaft shredders and four shaft shredders) come in handy in recycling steel drums. A steel drum shredder can load a steel drum at a time, shred within 20 seconds, and produce 40mm-wide metal stripes. An optional veritcal pusher can lock and feed a steel drum against the crushing chamber.
A four shaft shredder can perform the same but the final materials are slightly different. This shredder can strictly control the output size, producing 40mm by 40mm particles. Just like a paper shredder, the tooth of disk knife can grap and fix a steel drum.. The low-speed and high-torque rotors shear steel drum into pieces. This simple working princinple ensures a smooth size reduction from waste to value.
Other than metal drums, steel barrel shredder is also applicable to plastic drums, fiber drums, nestable plastic drums and stainless steel drums. The hazardous waste includes IBCs, oil drums, paint bucket, metal containers.
Steel drum shredding optimizes logistic processes and reduce storage fee by significantly reducing the volume of waste drums.
We also offer an automated cutter for lid removal and flattening.
