Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT5050 Pierce and Tear Shredder

The Ameri-Shred e-waste and e-scrap shredders match their product destruction counterparts in power and capability. Each model has varying specifications, as the size of the hopper, motor and cutters will depend on the product, the particle size and the required throughput. The Ameri-Shred AMS-PT5050 is designed specifically for destroying discarded or unneeded electronics. This dual shaft, hopper fed shredder allows for easy hand feeding of products. Standard hopper dimensions are 70"_x009d_ W x 93-1/2"_x009d_ L. Want to speed up production? The AMS-PT5050 can be installed with an optional in-feed or output conveyor. This E-Scrap and E-Waste destroyer works for numerous applications, including computers, fax machines, desk top printers, hard drives, phones, and tapes. The sturdy saw tooth, hooked cutters (36 in total) rip through these electronics, producing shredded strips that are the width of the cutters times a variable length. The cutters are 1 7/16"_x009d_ thick and 13"_x009d_ in diameter. The wide 28-1/2"_x009d_ W x 52"_x009d_ L cutting chamber accommodates your bulky and hefty e-materials. Occasionally the operator may become too shredder eager, leading to a malfunction or jam. The Ameri Shred AMS-PT5050 immediately detects this problem, and automatically kicks into reverse mode. The unit will continue to run in reverse until the problem is fixed. Waste is discharged into a container placed underneath the cutting chamber.

Direct, electric drive and two 50 HP motors power this pierce and tear shredder. Unlike the many industrial shredders Ameri-Shred offers, the pierce and tear line are built without spur gears. This eliminates the potential for wear as well as the necessity for constant maintenance of these gears. The Ameri Shred AMS-PT5050 features self cleaning combers for reduced maintenance. The small footprint and flexible design makes this model a favorite amongst the e-waste disposal or e-scrap recycling industries.
