Perfect for reclaiming, recycling, and size reduction of plastics and more, the Cumberland 78 Single Shaft Shredder (150 HP) offers power and durability to handle tough materials.
Description of the Cumberland 78 Single Shaft Shredder (150 HP)
The Cumberland 78 Single Shaft Shredder with a 150 HP motor is among the largest and most powerful of the Cumberland line up and is capable of impressive performance. This machine is designed for multiple kinds of material, and though ideally suited for plastics, they can also handle carpeting, wood processing scrap, reject parts, heavy cardboard, extruder purgings, and more. The Cumberland 78 is built on a stress free frame that is given further reinforcement by the fluid turbo coupling that converts vibration to additional torque under a heavy load. The unit is encased in heavy duty sidewalls, reinforcements, and braces, which are capable of supporting the enormous drive train that ensures reliable performance. The powerful motor is also designed for optimal performance thanks to the outboard roller bearings and the overall low speed and high torque design of the entire system.
The Cumberland 78 single shaft shredder has an enormous infeed hopper that is 78" x 87" that is further enhanced by the hydraulic process ram that pushes material into the high torsion cutting rotor consistently. The rotor has four way cutting inserts and works with the anvil (mounted with a counter knife plate) to deliver consistent results. When loads are very heavy or they begin to cause the machine to experience shock, the hydraulic pump system kicks in and begins using the oversized cooling system to protect the entire unit from further harm or unwarranted strain. Though designed for "severe" duty, the Cumberland 78 single shaft shredder may be unable to deliver the precise results required, and so the machine is capable of receiving various options and upgrades. From a different rotor design and specialty screens to a larger drive train and higher speed ram, it can be easily converted into a one stop size reduction system. The Cumberland 78 single shaft shredder is certainly a good solution for plastic processing, but it is more than that. With its excellent design, durable and rugged components, and low maintenance demands, it is a long term solution for processing of many different and complex materials of all kinds.
