The DGD Heavy Duty Twin Shaft Shredder is a versatile, heavy duty, dual electric motor driven, twin shaft shredding machine, available with various power and shaft speed configurations to handle a wide range of applications.
The twin shaft shredder uses two parallel shafts with interlocking cutting discs, as a result the material is shredded both lengthways and crossways. The cutting discs have tipped blades which grab the material and pull it down into the cutting chamber, making it particularly effective when shredded large hollow containers. The machine is not fitted with a fixed screen which means that issues with screen bridging/blocking are avoided and a consistent throughput can be achieved. The product size is controlled by the width of the shredding blades, number of hooks, and hook profile.
The machine is typically provided complete with loading hopper, support frame and stand-alone electrical control panel housing the electrical switchgear and Siemens PLC controller.
Auto-reverse and overload protection are standard features of the DGD Heavy Duty Twin Shaft Shredder. The PLC settings can easily be configured on site during commissioning to suit the type of materials being processed. Maintenance platforms and auxiliary equipment such as conveyors, separators, recirculation screens, and force feeding devices are available on request.
A safety switch prevents machine startup when the front panel is open and the machine features emergency stop buttons on the machine body and control panel.
