Description of the Cumberland 52 Single Shaft Shredder (100 HP)

Heavy duty processing of plastic waste and other similar materials is challenging work, and Cumberland provides a line of single shaft shredders that are capable of many different loads and materials. The Cumberland 52 Single Shaft Shredder with a 100 HP motor is a large and powerful unit that can handle plastics of any kind, including film or large extruder purgings. However, it is also capable of tackling carpeting, wood processing waste, cardboard, and a lot more. All of this functionality is due to the design of the unit. The Cumberland 52 single shaft shredder is built on a stress free frame and with very durable side walls. These support the heavy outboard roller bearings and the oversized drive train. This allows the unit to rely on an oversized gear box that is rated for crushing stone.

The Cumberland 52 Single Shaft Shredder with a 100 HP motor uses low speed and high torque to get ideal results, and it brings materials into the chamber via a massive infeed hopper that measures an impressive 52" x 68". The tramp metal protection allows the hydraulic process ram to push materials against the high output torsion point rotors. These use four way cutting inserts to pull materials into the chamber and against the replaceable counter knife plate. The design ensures that materials keep moving through the machine, which lessens the likelihood of jams or problems. The hydraulic pump on this machine is also capable of reacting to shock loads (loads that are heavier than normal) and triggers the oversized cooling system. This protects components from damage or overheating and allows the system to keep functioning.

Though this unit is clearly designed for durability and optimized performance, it may not be able to work as a turnkey solution for processing, recycling, or size reduction. Thus, this single shaft shredder can be equipped with many options and upgrades that include different controls, a larger rotor, a heavier duty drive train, and even inline granulators and other similar devices. The Cumberland 52 single shaft shredder is meant to deliver predictable and heavy duty output. This unit is low maintenance thanks to its impressively rugged design and components. It will easily handle plastics of all kinds, but is rated for much more difficult loads.
