ZHS - Horizontal Shredders

This ZHS series of single shaft shredders are used within the industry to economically recycle plastics, wood, paper, and general waste streams.

They have been engineered for strength and reliability in every day operations.

They feature an angled hydraulic ram suitable for feeding a wide range of material shapes, sizes, and weights without the risk of jams, blocking or excessive wear on guide rails.

Easily customisable to suit a range of applications, these shredders can be supplied with different drive powers, knife configurations as well as discharge options.

Featuring a 600mm diameter ZERMA E-style rotor and knife holder system for a consistent quality of output.

Machine benefits include:

-Large feeding hopper
-Robust welded steel construction
-Low speed operation
-Advanced rotor / knife mounting system

The final size of product processed by ZHS series shredders is determined by the screen, which can easily be changed based on requirements.

This series can easily be integrated into products and accessories such as belts, granulators and other ZERMA machinery.
