General Purpose High Volume Size Reduction

Bulk plastic scrap is quickly size-reduced with the economical General Purpose (GP) Series Shredders from Conair. Designed specifically for quickly cutting through plastic scrap, the GP Series readily accepts loose scrap, bundles, and even gaylord quantities of plastic materials dumped into its reinforced surge hopper. Scrap flows efficiently by an automatic ram feed into rotating rows of rugged knives, welded into machined pockets of the solid steel rotor.

Long life, high impact rotor takes the abuse

The 10 inch {254 mm} diameter, solid steel rotor is 4140 high alloy steel, heat treated for high tensile strength and a lifetime limited warranty. Oversized end bearings assure proper alignment and long life.

Extra long service from indexable blades

Each dagger-cut knife penetrates and efficiently cuts through plastic scrap and can be easily indexed to employ a fresh tip. Each knife provides four cutting edges.

Minimal maintenance rotor seals

Self-cleaning, non-contaminating rotor seals provide continuous operation, even with dusty scrap.

  • Solid steel, single-piece forged rotors - maximize durability and strength.
  • Self-cleaning, non-contaminating rotor seals - protect bearings from material contamination for longer bearing life.
  • Ultra-duty gear boxes - are directly coupled to regulate torque and rotor speed in rugged shredding applications.
  • Oversized spherical bearings - limit drift and handle heavy duty applications.
  • Auto-reverse rotor operation - quickly recovers in the event of jams.
  • Indexable dagger cutting system (4-way) - requires no sharpening and little maintenance to keep cutting efficient.
  • Straight-walls hopper - minimize the chance of materials bridging or compacting.
  • High efficiency ram and hydraulic system - maximizes throughput and efficiency with patented controls and high speed dual pump hydraulics package. (3 to 5 Hp {2.2 to 3.7 kW} standard).
  • Service access doors - (with removable rear compartment) provide easy access for maintenance.
  • Heavy duty construction cutting chamber - maximizes dimensional stability to ensure precision, strength, and durability.
  • Over-torque limiting clutch - provides automatic shutdown to prevent damage in the event of prolonged clutch slippage (Standard in 40 and 50 Hp {30 and 37 kW} models, optional in other models).

  • Take-away conveyors.
  • Elevating legs.
  • Custom feed hoppers.
  • Evacuation blower/vacuum system.
  • Interlocking controls - for both feed and take-away conveyors.
  • Auto-shred control system.
  • Over-torque limiting clutch assembly.
  • High-powered rotor motors - available from 20 to 50 Hp {15 to 37 kW}.
  • Hydraulic ram motors - available as 3 Hp or 5 Hp {2.2 or 3.7 kW}.
  • Variety of screen holes sizes - available from 3/8 to 3 inches {10 to 76 mm} - triple-cut small sizes can use water cooling to reduce size efficiently, eliminating the need for secondary granulation.
