Solid Waste Shredder

Solid waste and municipal solid waste (MSW) size reduction requires processing of many different materials, from filled drums to household waste.  And, as the amount of solid waste increases and the cost of landfill management increases, it is becoming more critical that waste management become more effective, economic and efficient.  Shredded and compacted waste is easier and cheaper to transport and extends the life of the landfill. In addition, separating out materials that can be reclaimed and recycled or that need to be incinerated or composted increases the landfill productivity while providing revenue to offset the costs of processing the solid waste.

Granutech’s Saturn Shredders use powerful blades to process the many materials that comprise solid waste.  Constructed of the strongest materials, our blades and rotors are designed to shred the toughest of materials without breakdowns or production slowdowns.  Our systems can integrate screens, filters and magnets to separate materials pre or post-processing, providing capture of materials for reclamation or incineration.  If additional reductions are required, our Roto-Grind or Grizzly grinders can be integrated into the system.  Our shredders are manufactured to shred your toughest materials and keep working at peak performance. Filled drums, bales, metals and plastics are no match for our shredders.

Our solid waste shredders are slow speed, high torque shredders designed to process the wide range of materials found in MSW and industrial waste, providing any necessary separation after shredding or grinding. 

  • Dual rotor or quad rotor models are available to meet your application requirements
  • Drives from 50HP to 1,000HP
  • Screens or magnets can be used to separate materials after shredding
  • Grinder and granulators can be integrated if further sizing is needed
  • Ancillary equipment, including feeders and discharge conveyors, vibration and screen classifiers and separation equipment, is available and can be integrated into your system design

Granutech’s staff is experienced in developing size reduction solutions for solid waste, whether you need a small unit for your processing plant or a large municipal incinerator.  We will work with you to design a shredder system that meets your exact requirements. We encourage our customers to test-shred their materials at our test facility.  You will know your solid waste will be processed correctly.
