Universal Shredder (NGU)

Universal Shredder (NGU)

Continuous high-performance shredder

The NGU Universal Shredder is a high-speed single-shaft shredder designed for pre- and post-shredding of any material that can be cut, such as paper, files, data media, textiles, wood, cables, plastics and packaging. It shreds the loaded material to a size between 10 and 120 mm.

Rotorshredder (RS)

Rotorshredder (RS)

Our BHS Rotorshredder (type RS) crushes, untangles and disaggregates materials. The crushing tools exert an intense stress on the input material through a combination of impact, punching and shear forces. This results in selective size reduction with the following special features:

• Particle sizes are reduced in a targeted manner
• Composite materials are disaggregated
• Hard and brittle materials undergo intense size reduction
• Metals are separated and cleaned

Rotary Shear (VR)

Rotary Shear (VR)

The Rotary Shear is a low-speed, high-torque, twin-shaft shredder. The machine is suitable for the shredding of bulky materials (e.g. domestic, commercial and bulky waste) or ductile input material (e.g. tires, cables, plastic film, paper, textiles) using cutting tools. It also reduces high-volume input materials and items with a large unit weight. At the same time, the Rotary Shear reliably achieves an extremely high shredding ratio.
