Shred-Tech® custom designs and manufactures Plastic Shredding Systems to reclaim post consumer and industrial plastic wastes. Dual and four shaft shredders are often used to reduce large molded items, purgings, engineered plastics, film, etc., so that they may be further granulated for reuse in molding or directly to extruding.
Pre-shredding plastic materials prior to granulation provides the following benefits:
- Reduced capital costs
- Reduced operating costs
- Reduced material fines generation
- Reduced granulator downtime
- Increased granulator throughput
Shred-Tech®’s ST line of Dual Shaft Shredders and STQ line of Four Shaft Shredders are used in a variety of applications such as plastic drum reduction, the shredding of stretch film, and the reduction of packaging materials. Shred-Tech® also designs systems, which recycle post consumer plastics into plastic lumber, reclaim nylon from post consumer carpeting, and destroy consumer products to reclaim packaging and prevent liability prior to disposal. Shred-Tech®’s Plastics Reduction Systems continue to broaden the scope of recyclable plastic products.
