T140 Three-Shaft Shredder

SSI’s Tri-Shear® T140 is a low-speed, high-torque, three-shaft, rotary shear shredder designed to efficiently process a variety of difficult materials to a consistent particle size.

Tri-Shear® T140 shredders are multi-purpose shredders designed to shred, liberate and reduce a wide range of materials without thick metals in a single pass. Three shafts in the Tri-Shear® T140 shred and recirculate materials within the machine until they are a small enough size to pass through the removable screen below the cutters.
