Size reduction shredders for various needs
Size Reduction Shredders are offered in two styles - the 4 Shaft Tiger Quad Shredder and the single shaft Piranha. Both offer versatility in processing of medical waste by utilizing a removable sizing screen. The shredders are able to handle bagged waste, sharps containers or batches from autoclave carts. The screen can be left in place for processing sharps containers or removed to generate a higher processing rate for general medical and red bag waste. Both units feature in feed ram assist, allowing the shredders to more efficiently process the waste by assisting material feed. The single shaft Piranha offers a one-pass cross-cut output from 1/4" to 4" while handling most red bag waste, secure documents and binders. The Tiger 4 Quad Shear Shredder offers a progressive cut over the sizing screen providing an output from 3/4" to 4" while handling red bag waste, secure documents, and binders. The de-jamming circuit of the Tiger 4 Quad Shredder detects material that cannot be shredded such as titanium hip joints, wheel chair parts, surgical tools, and heavy metal, causing the shredder to shut down prior to being damaged.
