Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT4040 Pierce and Tear Shredder

Ameri-Shred's hopper fed AMS-PT4040 is specifically designed for destroying e-scrap and e-waste. The size of the hopper, motor and cutters all depend on the product, the particle size and the necessary throughput. These e-scrap shredders are available in either top feed or side feed hopper models. The standard size of the hopper opening is 70"_x009d_ W x 93-1/2"_x009d_ L. While the machine is originally set up for hand feeding, the AMS-PT4040 can include optional in-feed or output conveyors. These conveyors dramatically increase production. The dual shaft AMS-PT4040 model features two 40 HP motors and right angle helical bevel gear motor.

Unlike the three other pierce and tear models, the Ameri Shred AMS-PT4040 is meant to destroy specifically electronic materials. The 36 saw tooth, double hooked cutters help in this task. These cutters are 1-7/16"_x009d_ thick and 13"_x009d_ in diameter, and easily rip through computers and fax machines, desk top printers, hard drives, phones and tapes, and much more. The 28-1/2"_x009d_ W x 52"_x009d_ L cutting chamber of the AMS-PT4040 accommodates these bulky materials. The result: shredded strips the width of the cutters times a variable length. This shredded waste drops from the cutting chamber into any container placed underneath the chamber, such as a cardboard box or plastic bin.

With bulky and heavy duty materials being fed, jams are inevitable. Luckily, the Ameri Shred AMS-PT4040 automatically detects a jam and immediately switches into reverse until the problem is fixed. Unlike industrial shredders, the AMS-PT4040 does not include spur gears, and thus does not require an oil bath system. The small footprint makes this unit perfect when space is tight in your warehouse or recycling center. For those looking to destroy or recycle electronics, the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT4040 offers a flexible and powerful solution.
