FLEX Series Shredders

Flex Series Shredder

High Volume Extra Duty Size Reduction

Large quantities of bulk plastic scrap are quickly size-reduced with the heavy-duty FLEX Series Shredders from Conair. Designed specifically for size-reducing high volumes of plastic scrap, the FLEX Series includes features that allow Conair to customize the FLEX to meet your specific shredding needs. With rotor diameters of 15 or 20 inches, widths up to 105 inches and drive motors from 40 to 300 Hp. The FLEX Series can be readily matched to the challenges of hard, soft, flexible plastic scrap in bundles, dumped from gaylords or fed loosely.

Controlled feeding is provided by an automatic hydraulic ram that pushes scrap into a rotating row of rugged knives welded (standard) or bolted (optional) into machined pockets of the solid steel rotor. Once started, operation is fully automatic.

Long life, high impact rotor takes the abuse

The drop-forged, single-shaft, solid steel rotor is 4140 high alloy steel, heat treated for high tensile strength with a lifetime limited warranty. Oversized outboard pillow block bearings with split housings provide long life and easy shaft removal.

Extra-long service from indexable 4-way blades

Dagger-cut design penetrates and efficiently cuts through plastic scrap and can be easily rotated to employ a fresh tip.

Self-protecting drive train

The over-torque limiting clutch assembly eliminates shredding resistance from being transferred to the gearbox, providing smoother operation and extended life of all drive train components.


  • 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.
  • 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).
