Dual-Shear®

M85 Two-Shaft Shredder

The Dual-Shear® M85 from SSI Shredding Systems is a low-speed, high-torque, two-shaft, rotary shear shredder engineered and built to efficiently process a wide variety of difficult to shred materials.

Dual-Shear® M85 industrial shredders are versatile machines commonly employed in bulky item reduction, product destruction or pre-conditioning (primary shredding) where particle size variation is acceptable. Output consists of “strips” the width of the cutters - usually 25 - 76 mm (1 - 3 in). Dual-Shear® M85 industrial shredders are engineered with drive and cutter configurations specific to your production requirements.

DUAL-SHEAR® DESIGN FEATURES

CAPABLE

Dual-Shear® industrial shredders are able to shred a wide range of materials, including compressible items such as rubber, textiles and plastics.

ADAPTABLE

Dual-Shear® two-shaft shredders can be configured for general purpose shredding, or for specific processing needs. The unique design with individual internal wear parts makes it easy to change the shredder capacity and output size as processing needs evolve over time.

DRIVEN

Dual-Shear® shredders are available in a wide range of electric and hydraulic drive configurations. Drives can be selected based on low cost, energy saving, variable speed or heavy-duty application criteria.

PATENTED

Dual-Shear® shredders are available with patented feature such as ACLS™ - Advanced Cutter Locking System, SSP™ - Severe Shockload Protection System, SmartFeed™, Ram Assist, and more.

PROTECTED

Dual-Shear® industrial shredders have an advanced bearing protection system with multiple barriers of mechanical labyrinth and conventional seals, protecting costly bearings and ensuring maximum on-line reliability.

HIGH TORQUE, LOW SPEED

Low-speed, hydraulic drive technology provides an environmentally friendly operation with low noise, low dust, minimized fines, high on-line reliability and low maintenance.
