SSI's PRI-MAX® Primary Reducer PR6600 at Sun Services
Sun Services President Brian Shipp says his team started discussing the merits of introducing a new shredder on the front end of the line a couple years ago to help better size incoming material. After ongoing discussions, they settled on investing in the Pri-Max PR6600 from Wilsonville, Oregon-based SSI Shredding Systems. Capable of processing between 60-150 tons per hour, this low-speed, high-torque industrial primary shredder is able to shred, tear, crush and reduce materials that would otherwise be impossible to size with Sun Services’ previous equipment.
“We added the SSI shredder on the front end of our line seven months ago, which has doubled our throughput in a 10-hour day,” Shipp says. “It makes everything a uniform size, breaks up all the stuff that is tied together and allows us to take materials we wouldn’t be able to take before, such as railroad ties. It has streamlined that process a lot.”
Shipp says that thanks to the shredder, Sun Services doesn’t have to be as judicious in choosing which materials to process and which to send directly to landfill for expediency.
