Commercial Plastic Shredders for Industrial Use

Industrial plastic shredders are used to reduce larger plastic parts into smaller particles. These size reduction systems can be used to recycle plastic waste so that it is reusable by breaking plastic down into uniform, standardized particles.

  • The single shaft shredder design is a more appropriate choice when a consistent particle size is needed.
  • Industrial shredders can be paired with a used granulator for a shredding/grinding line.
  • A single shaft shredder feed stream also needs to be clean of large metals. When metal is present a dual or multi shaft shredder may be a better option. 

The used shredders that Arlington Machinery sells can be used in many industries including the plastics, packaging, chemical and automotive industries.

Considerations for Used Single Shaft Shredder Purchasing
