  • Reduced chip size increases the value of scrap to recycler
  • Cost effective way to reduce size of chips
  • Low speed/high torque reduces energy costs

The development of automated scrap removal systems begins with reducing the volume of metal turnings. Milling, turning, screw machining, and swiss machining operations all produce waste that varies in size, length, hardness, and configuration depending on the tool, operation, and material characteristics. The first step in this operation is using industrial metal shredders to create flowable chips from metal turnings to facilitate scrap metal recycling.

Advantages of PRAB Metal Turnings Shredders Include:

  • Reduce turnings volume up to 4 times at the source
  • Improved housekeeping and metal scrap handling safety
  • Reduced scrap storage space
  • Creates small shovel-grade chips
  • Increase in metal scrap value to the recycler

System-Integrated Shredder (SMD)

PRAB’s System-integrated (SMD) line of industrial metal shredders are efficient solutions for turnings volume reduction of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Units are integrated into complete chip processing/scrap metal recycling systems to provide size reduction of scrap prior to separating fluid from chips for sending to recycle. The quiet, energy-saving dual shafts operate by ripping and tearing turnings into manageable, shovel-grade chips for further processing. Available in 6 standard sizes.

SMD12: 12″ (20 cm)
SMD18: 18″ (46 cm)
SMD24: 24″ (61 cm)
SMD30: 30″ (76 cm)
SMD36: 36″ (122 cm)
SMD48: 48″ (122 cm)

Stand-Alone Horizontal Axis Shredder (HAS)

PRAB’s stand-alone Horizontal Axis Shredder (HAS) is a cost-effective solution for scrap metal recycling to reduce volumes of ferrous and non-ferrous metal turnings machine-side. The quiet, energy-saving dual shafts operate by ripping and tearing turnings into manageable, shovel-grade chips for further processing and scrap collection.
