ZSS, ZPS & ZIS - The sturdy all Rounders

ZSS Shredders: General purpose shredder. Has the option to be equipped with the taller, heavier, ZPS-style hydraulic ram to suit the shredder to heavy applications such as pipes and heavy purgings.

ZPS Shredders: Larger ram than the ZSS model, this shredder is best suited for heavy applications such as the size reduction of pipes.

ZIS Shredders: Ideal to size reduce large, hollow products (e.g. drums, IBCS, and barrels), This shredder features an internal ram to increase the capacity of the cutting chamber, without increasing the machine’s footprint.

With dual speed hydraulic feeders to ensure high efficiency, The ZSS, ZPS and ZIS series of shredders has been designed to suit a range of applications:

  • General in-house recycling- electronic waste
  • Organic materials- paper, wood, woven bags
  • Forms of plastic- IBC’s, pipes, bales

Each of the shredders in this series can be fine-tuned to suit specific applications with different knife and screen designs, rotor cooling, hard facing, and other wear options. Depending on input material and the recycling process, the shredded material can either be used directly or processed further; for example, in the GSH granulator.

Equipped with a powerful two-speed swing ram design to eliminate the risk of wearing  or blocking out internal guide rails. The ZERMA rotor of each machine features a large diameter and unique knife and knife-holder design to easily manage a variety of in-feed materials.

Oversized bearings, shafts, and hydraulic screens with each machine ensure a consistent quality of product and a long service life. Hydraulic screen cradles and PLC controls are supplied as standard on all machines meaning maintenance is made hassle-free whilst machines downtime can be kept to a minimum.

Machine benefits include:

  • Oversized gearboxes with high torque
  • Oversized shafts and bearings
  • Sturdy welded steel construction
  • Hydraulic feeders without guide rails
  • Bolted knife and knife holders
  • 35% more space in the cutting chamber for the ZIS Series
  • Low speed, high torque gear drive
  • Smaller footprint compared to traditional shredders with horizontal pushers
  • Bolted in drive shafts
