PRAB Metal Turnings Shredders reduce volumes or metal turnings by shredding them into flowable chips for higher value when sending to the recycler. Units are a safe and cost-effective way to process all types of steel turnings and other metalworking scrap– using less space for storage and creating safer work areas. PRAB’s Metal Shredders are available as System-Integrated Shredders (SMD models) for use with chip processing or transporting systems or as stand-alone Horizontal Axis Shredders (HAS) unit for volume reduction at the source.
PRAB System-Integrated (SMD) Shredder Components
System-Integrated Shredder (SMD) Operation:
Dual rotating shafts with blades are fed with a screw conveyor which originates from a feed hopper. Custom attachments to other kinds of feed systems are possible. Shredded material passes downward for disposal or for further processing downstream for removing cutting fluids.
Dual counter-rotating shafts with cast cutter disc and spacer combinations produce shearing, ripping and tearing action.
Stand-Alone Horizontal Axis Shredder (HAS) Operation:
The Horizontal Axis Shredder (HAS) is an efficient solution for breaking up turnings and bushy wads of metal at the source, as a stand alone system.
