The new Crushmaster Q Series of shredders is available in the UK from Summit Systems
A series of size reduction shredders, new to the UK market, are eliminating the need for expensive systems or third party recycling for cost-effective material recovery.
The Crushmaster Q Series of shredders is designed to reduce a wide array of plastics, from wheelie bins to purgings, at 30 percent less than the price of a standard shredder and built to work in combination with a low-cost granulator for optimal consistent and low cost material recovery.
“Some of our clients with bulky waste asked for a way to avoid investing in very large expensive granulation systems or having to outsource to a third party recycler,” explained Mike Jordan, Managing Director of Summit Systems, supplier of the shredders in the UK.
“We identified the answer to be the Crushmaster as it provides a low cost way of breaking down scrap, prior to granulation. Clients are then able to granulate material using much smaller, lower cost equipment than they otherwise could.”
The Crushmaster Q Series is suited to medium to light duty applications across several industries, covering blow moulding, large injection moulded parts, profile extrusion and thermoset mouldings.
Built to withstand continuous processing, the Crushmaster Q Series can reduce up to 50 tonnes per week. By cutting out third party recycling, it is said to reduce the cost of recycling by as much as 75 percent, paying for itself within 22 tonnes of processing.
“The rapid action of the Q Series reduces a tonne of waste in a matter of hours, eradicating the need to store mountains of bulky waste to await collection. The end product takes up a fraction of the space of scrap, and is of a consistent quality for immediate granulation and then re-use,” Jordan added.
Designed for simplicity the Q Series combines a variety of features to reduce downtime and maximise productivity. Cutters can be turned after a side is worn, and an easily removable screen allows for quick rotor access and screen changes.
