Ferrous Scrap Metal Shredding & Recycling
Ferrous Processing and Separation Application
Ferrous scrap metal includes metals that can be reclaimed for use through traditional ferrous scrap recovery systems. These metals include a wide variety of light ferrous scrap such as sheet steel, 55 gallon drums, white goods, and other forms of loose tin. Heavier ferrous scrap can be processed through the Saturn hammermill line of ferrous scrap metal shredding equipment which also produce a more consistent, higher density shred. Shredders prepare the metals for further separation or directly to end ferrous scrap consumers for scrap metal recycling. Additional Granutech machinery such as the MAC Magnum Logger, or MAC Big MAC auto crusher can compact and densify larger ferrous items reducing transportation costs.
Quad shaft shredders can also reduce and process ferrous scrap producing a consistent size end product. Dual or quad shaft shredders break bales or briquettes of pre-processed metal scrap for final size reduction and separation. Integrated systems include shredders and hammer mills with feed and discharge systems along with separation processes for producing a clean ferrous end product.

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.
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.
MAC MAGNUM Logger
The MAC MAGNUM Logger is ideal for automotive recycling applications requiring a rugged, dependable machine. The MAC MAGNUM's continuous-rotation crane has the longest, strongest reach of any logger/baler in the industry and it can handle a load capacity of 5,800 pounds at full reach. Equipped with a plus-size high-production chamber, the MAC MAGNUM also offers variable density options, and variable length log/bales sized 40" x 26". For added flexibility, the cab features an IQAN™ control system.
BIG MAC Crusher
Widely recognized as the industry standard, "Big MAC" flatteners combine high performance and low maintenance characteristics in a mobile auto crusher. The result is an unparalleled record for equipment performance: more than 90% of all "Big MAC" flatteners ever made are still at work, with machines built in the 70’s still in operation today.
Saturn Grizzly M-80
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.
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.
