Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT1010 Pierce and Tear Shredder

Offering a 20 HP motor, the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT 1010 pierce and tear shredder is capable of destroying an array of materials, including textiles, paper, cardboard, plastics, and more. Each model is specially designed, as the size of the hopper, motor and cutters will depend on the product, the particle size and the required throughput. These Pierce and Tear shredders can be equipped for either top feed or front feed hoppers. While this dual shaft Ameri Shred AMS-PT shredder is primarily hopper fed (36"_x009d_ W x 48"_x009d_ L), this model can be equipped with an optional in-feed conveyor. This conveyor system helps speed up production time. Shredded waste falls into any container placed underneath the cutting chamber, such as a cardboard box or plastic bin. A separate control panel features several functions and buttons, giving the operator complete control during the shredding process.

The double hooked, saw tooth cutters break down some of the toughest materials. Each cutting assembly offers 37 cutters, which are 5/8"_x009d_ thick. These cutters do not merely shred your materials. Materials enter the 22-3/4"_x009d_ x 26-3/8"_x009d_ cutting chamber and are pushed through the cutters, resulting in variable length pieces. The Ameri-Shred AMS-PT1010 can be used for several possible applications. The textile industry may employ this unit to destroy clothing. Electronic scrap or waste is easily broken down by these sturdy cutters. Even wood, plastics, and aluminum are easily destroyed by this shredder.

Overloading is common when destroying high volumes. The Ameri Shred AMS-PT1010 offers an automatic reverse function. If a jam occurs, the PT1010 will instantly switch into and run in reverse until the problem is repaired. Self cleaning combers, four grease fittings and two oil level sight gages allow for easy maintenance. The rugged, all steel construction makes the AMS-PT1010 durable and perfect for any warehouse environment. Although not precisely compact, the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT1010 offers an innovative space saving design, taking up minimal space in your warehouse, recycling plant, or production area. This Ameri-Shred unit is flexible and will potentially fit your specific application needs.
