What is an Industrial Plastic Shredder

By definition, a plastic shredder (a.k.a. plastic shredding machine) is a piece of machine used to break down big plastic into smaller pieces. Usually, the machine consists of one rotating knife with a low rotating speed (45 RPM) but high torque, unlike plastic granulators that are at a high speed at 500 RPM.

Our shredding machine can reduce a wide variety of bulk solids up to 80%. Applications include food waste, pallets, steel drums, bulk waste, packaging, plastic, wood and paper, electronic components, etc.

Plastic Shredding Usage

Industrial Plastic Shredder is designed specifically as primary size reduction, and usually applicable for plastic waste, like purgings, housing, car bumpers, plastic in bale, pipes, drums, plastic rejects, and other materials too big for crushers.

In the process, bulky plastic objects are fed into the shredder. The resulting shredded particles are then collected by belt conveyor and washed and processed in washing plants, such as friction washer and centrifugal dryer.
