Hazardous Waste Shredding
The disposal of hazardous waste requires special handling to ensure that safety and regulatory requirements are met. Preparing the waste for incineration or burial requires equipment that is durable and reliable so that the materials are processed safely and in accordance with the regulatory requirements.
Granutech’s Saturn Shredders and complementary machines in our line can feature all-stainless-steel construction and are designed to handle hazardous waste shredding safely.
Sample Hazardous Materials
- Dry solid waste
- Household hazardous waste
- Metal or plastic drums with contents
- Solids & liquids
- Radioactive waste
- Nuclear fuel rods
- Medical waste
- Live or spent ammunition
Our engineers will work with you to configure and design a machine or medical waste shredder for your specific hazardous waste application so that you can be sure your waste products will be processed safely while meeting the necessary size reduction requirements.
Safety & Customization Available
- Class I, Divisions 1 & 2 Environments
- Remote monitoring capability (video, infrared, mobile, radio, and more)

Saturn Single Shredder
The most durable single-shaft shredder in the industry, only from Granutech-Saturn Systems, the Roto-Grind industrial shredder is ideal and widely used for various industrial applications. The latest technology is used for this Saturn Roto-Grind shredder and many model sizes are offered with horsepower ranging from 20 hp to 400 hp.
Saturn Dual Shredder
For over 40 years, Saturn dual-shaft shredders have been the market choice for recycling industries. These rugged industrial shredders can handle a wide variety of materials and are ideal for challenging applications that require a broad range of product output sizes. Now available with our exclusive, patent pending Hybrid-Drive mechanism, the product is even more flexible and bridges the gap between electrical and hydraulic designs. Our dual-shaft shredders are well-suited to stand alone operation or can be used for pre-shredding for further downstream processing.
Saturn Quad-Shaft Shredder
Granutech-Saturn Systems' designs extend to our unique rugged quad-shaft industrial shredders for applications that require uniform size reduction. Granutech’s quad-shaft Saturn shredders lead the market in performance, durability and reliability in evolving applications. Saturn industrial shredders can work with a broad range of materials and Granutech can also custom-design and configure a shredder that will meet your exact material and output requirements.
Granutech-Saturn’s hammermill products started with the acquisition in 2015 of Magnatech Engineering formerly located in Tonganoxie, Kansas. With a complete line of stationary hammermills in sizes ranging from 36 inch to 72 inch rotor diameter, and hundreds of installations in North America. The Magnatech product line is known for durability and reliability. Granutech-Saturn, with our extensive manufacturing capabilities located in Grand Prairie, Texas, will continue to provide parts and service for existing Magnatech hammermills for years to come.
MAC 5200 Baler
Developed for high density baling of both ferrous and non-ferrous metal, MAC’s Model 5200 excels in a broad range of materials including loose steel sheet, clips and trim stock. A real workhorse, the Model 5200 features both a shear head compressed ram and side compressed ram, and is capable of producing bales measuring 16-inches square by variable lengths at a rate of 55-60 per hour. Bale densities vary according to material but average 165 lb./cu. ft. for ferrous material and 50-65 lb./cu. ft. for aluminum.
Saturn Grizzly Super 80
The Saturn Grizzly Super 80 by Granutech-Saturn Systems is an industry-leading medium speed grinder that provides efficient, high performance size reduction for processing shredded tires. Granutech’s 40 years of experience designing size reduction equipment means the Saturn Grizzly Super 80 will be around for many years. It uses a state-of-the-art single rotor design and application configurable screens for exact size reduction. By producing smaller, more consistent material, the Saturn Grizzly Super 80 improves the performance of downstream equipment, or can replace it entirely.
Saturn Grizzly M80
The Saturn Grizzly M-80 is a size reduction system utilizing a unique staggered knife single rotor design. This durable industrial rubber granulator is easy to maintain and provides incredibly clean rubber and separated steel when processing tires. The Grizzly's unique rotor construction and proprietary blade material allow the greatest size reduction for your materials while minimizing blade cost.
