Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-12500 Strip Cut Industrial Shredder

With years of experience in manufacturing, Ameri-Shred delivers quality and reliable shredders for a vast selection of applications. The Series 5 strip cut industrial shredders are American made and built to tackle high volumes of paper and bulky materials such as tires. The first model in Ameri-Shred's Series 5 strip cut industrial shredders, the AMS-12500, features a 125 HP motor, 36"_x009d_-42"_x009d_ throat opening, and the ability to shred materials into three sizes. The larger the strip cut, the higher the volume destroyed. The AMS-12500 churns through 5.0-7.0 tons, breaking down your materials into 1/2" strips. Items are converted into 5/8"_x009d_ strips, resulting in a throughput of 6.0-8.0 tons per hour. For the highest shredding capacity, the Ameri Shred AMS-12500 handles between 7.0-9.0 tons every hour when producing 1"_x009d_ strips. The specially designed saw tooth cutters have hooks that tear through paper and other materials. These cutters are heat treated and hardened, meant to operate for years without damage. Continuous bulk reduction will not strain these cutters.

The Ameri Shred AMS-12500 is a top load unit that offers a 98"_x009d_ long and 36"_x009d_-42"_x009d_ wide infeed conveyor. This unit can be paired with an output conveyor for increased productivity. Two massive spur gears help transfer torque from the lower shaft of the shredder to the upper shaft of the cutter assembly. These spur gears are hardened, and require little maintenance thanks to the spur gear oil bath. Aluminum bronze wear pads help prevent the cutters from riding into the side plate of the shredder and causing damage. These pads can be field adjusted to maintain tolerances, which ensure maximum destruction under all shredding conditions. Weighing in at a massive 24,000 lbs., the AMS-12500 is meant for fixed operation. Combined with a paper metering system, output conveyor, and baler, the Ameri-Shred AMS-12500 can maximize production for plant capacities of 100 to 1000 tons of paper per month.
