Description of the Cumberland 52 Single Shaft Shredder (40 HP)

Size reduction is demanded in many processes, and yet not all size reduction gear can handle the different loads. This is why Cumberland offers a full range of single shaft shredders to meet the needs of many industries. The Cumberland 52 Single Shaft Shredder with a 40 HP drive is a large unit with a long list of capabilities. It is frequently identified as an ideal solution for the processing of plastic waste, but it can also handle carpet, wood processing waste, cardboard, purgings, and many other heavier materials. The Cumberland 52 single shaft shredder begins its work with the enormous infeed of 52" x 68". This uses a massive hopper equipped with a hydraulic process ram to hold all materials against the rotors. The protective design of the infeed eliminates the risk of damage to the machine, and the powerful rotor ensures that everything moves downward into the chamber and toward the discharge. The 52" chamber is fitted with the high torsion point cutting rotor that delivers low speed and high torque on each turn. It is equipped with four way indexable cutting inserts that come up against the replaceable counter knife plate. This ensures that all materials are processed properly, no matter how heavy duty they might be.

The Cumberland 52 single shaft shredder also has a hydraulic pump that is capable of instantly responding to shock loads. This guarantees that the unit's cooling system is activated and that minimal to no damage occurs when a very heavy load enters the infeed. The good performance of the Cumberland 52 single shaft shredder is supported by the heavy outboard roller bearings and the impressive oversized drive train. All of this is supported by the unit's construction that uses heavy side walls and a rugged frame. Should the processing fail to meet requirements by the processor, the unit gladly works with many size reduction machines to deliver the necessary results. The Cumberland 52 single shaft shredder can handle all kinds of loads, and it will do so with reliability and without fail. The design of the unit makes it operate relatively quietly, and it will rarely jam, fail, or demand down time. It will provide many years of service and deliver impressive results with many different materials or demands.
