Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-20000 Strip Cut Industrial Shredder

Series 5, the final series of Ameri-Shred strip cut industrial shredders, offers the highest power and throughput. When shredding huge loads, you need a machine with a large drive, sturdy cutting shafts, and a flexible design. With a strong 200 HP drive, the AMS-20000 is available in 208, 230, or 460 voltage. The infeed conveyor, which is 98" long and between 42"-48" wide, accommodates a load of material. Three shred widths, 1/2", 5/8" , and 1" , determine throughput and shredding capacity. The larger the strip cut, the higher the volume shred. The AMS-20000 powers through a massive amount of material (between 9.0-13.0 tons) every hour. This unit will convert your materials into 1/2" strips and shred 9.0-10 tons each hour. When shredding into 5/8" pieces, the AMS-20000 destroys 10.0-12.0 tons. Finally, large 1" strips yield a throughput of 11.0-13.0 tons per hour. This unit should not run consistently and the available automatic lubrication system is certainly recommended to help keep this unit running in optimal condition.

Excelling at bulk reduction, the AMS-20000 feature specially designed saw tooth cutters that have hooks to rip and tear through your materials. These 18" , precision ground A-2 steel cutters are heat treated and hardened for durability and longevity. Maximum torque is transferred from the lower shaft of the shredder to the upper shaft of the cutter assembly. This is accomplished by two massive spur gears that are 18" in diameter with a 16" wide face. These hardened spur gears weigh 850 lbs., and require minimal maintenance as they run in an oil bath. Aluminum bronze wear pads keep 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.

Recycling industries require power, reliability, and flexibility when it comes to bulk reduction. The Ameri-Shred AMS-20000 strip cut industrial shredder is a proven powerhouse. Partnered with a paper metering system, output conveyor and baler, the Ameri-Shred AMS-20000 maximizes production for plant or recycling capacities of 100 to 1000 tons of paper per month.
