The high throughput shredder
series of shredders are built tough for high
throughputs & demanding applications. Standard
shredders having rotor widths of 1,500mm through
3,000mm use 750mm diameter cutting rotors.
ZXS shredders are well suited to size
reduction of a range of materials from
voluminous tanks to solid purgings. A large
rotor diameter in combination with slow
rotational speed ensures smooth operation.
Easy access doors combined with an optional
hydraulically actuated screen cradle ensure easy
access for maintenance & cleaning. Throughputs
up to 10,000 kg/hr can be expected.
ZXS shredders are equipped with a hydraulic
feeding system. The heavy duty swinging ram is
equipped with heavy duty bearings & supports.
The swinging ram is equipped with a serrated
ram plate to minimise slippage when shredding
bulky items such as bundles, lumps or pallets.
To eliminate material build up between the
pusher & cutting chamber, the pusher is equipped
The hydraulically operated ram forces
material against the rotor & in the event there
is an overload situation, the ram will stop &
then move backwards to release pressure on the
rotor. The ram then automatically reverts to the
forward pushing motion & in this way throughput
The special swing ram design eliminates the
need for guide rails inside the cutting chamber,
reducing wear & the risk of the pusher jamming.
The swinging ram design also reduces the
footprint of the machine.
Standard shredders are equipped with two
speed hydraulic systems allowing the ram to move
faster in a no load situation.
ZXS shredders are an integral part of any
recycling system. In feed & out feed conveyors
are available on request.
