Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-15000 Strip Cut Industrial Shredder

Ameri-Shred's Series 5 strip cut industrial shredders are available in 125 to 200 horsepower models. Each model offers the power, drive, and capability expected from the American made Ameri-Shred. The AMS-15000 is the second in this line of heavy duty industrials, offering a 150 HP motor and throat opening of 42" -48" . Load the accommodating 98" long infeed conveyor with a variety of heavy and bulky material. The top load system features specially designed saw tooth cutters with hooks that rip and tear your materials. These 18" diameter cutters are heat treated and hardened, and crafted to withstand years of continuous bulk reduction without damage. Destroying between 7.0 and 11.0 tons per hour, the Ameri Shred AMS-15000 is available in three different shred widths: 1/2", 5/8" , and 1" . Throughput varies depending upon each shred width. For example, the AMS-15000 destroys between 7.0-9.0 tons each hour when shredding materials into small 1/2" strips. Shredding larger 5/8" strips allows this unit to destroy 8.0-10.0 tons. To accomplish the highest volume, the AMS-15000 handles 9.0-11.0 tons and produces 1" strips.

Maximum torque is transferred from the lower shaft of the shredder to the upper shaft of the cutting assembly. This is accomplished by the two massive spur gears, which require minimal 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. These wear pads can be field adjusted to maintain tolerances and ensure maximum shredding under all conditions. Single point lubrication allows for easy maintenance of the main bearings and wear pads.

This Ameri-Shred unit saves on energy consumption thanks to the automatic shut down function. Immense in size, with dimensions of 187" L x 122" W x 82" H, the AMS-15000 weighs in at a massive 24,000 lbs. Built for shredding bulky materials and high volumes of paper products, tires, and more, the AMS 15000 works more efficiently when paired with other components. The Ameri-Shred AMS-15000 can be combined with a paper metering system, output conveyor or baler, increasing productivity for plant capacities of 100 to 1000 tons of paper per month.
