Large Tim SD1600 High Speed Shredder suitable for all high speed shredding applications.  With out a doubt one of the best high speed shredders on the market equipped with unique functions that bring this machine way ahead of the rest.

Why use a High Speed Shredder

High speed shredders are used to produce smaller material sizes, material that a slow speed can’t create.  Some operators use the high and slow speed shredder together, the slow speed giving the material the initial shred, and taking out as much metal as possible, then it gets fed into the high speed shredder, this greatly reduces wear and damage potential in the high speed shredder chamber.  Working out to cost less per ton to produce the material than using a high speed shredder on its own.

A high speed shredder of course can be run on its own, but the operator has to be careful when loading the machine, with the rotor flailing around at high speed if there is large metal contaminants, the risk of damage is quite high.  Saying this 75-80% of high speed shredding is carried out as a solo operation.

The general process

When the material enters a yard to be high speed shredded, the operator will use a selecta grab to pick the material to go into the high speed infeed floor.  Quality checking as he goes along to make sure there is no large metal contaminants etc.  This material is brought forward in the hopper and is pressed under a large infeed roller which rotates to push the material in against the rotor.  When the material hits the rotor it is flailed against an upper concave (like a set of metal sharks teeth)  the material is initially broken against this, then it goes on around and hits the basket/screen.  The basket/screen is shaped to be a cutting edge with the required aperture of piece size, i.e. 70mm etc.  The 70mm minus material will go through the basket, the oversize will go back around the rotor hitting the lower concave to be broken again, and then back around to the upper concave and so on.

Benefits of the Tim SD1600

2 Piece basket – Tim SD1600 has 2 baskets that clam shell together, giving the largest overall surface area of screening area for a machine in this size range.  (With more shredding basket open surface area, means more production)

In feed floor hydraulically lifts – The Feeder floor and upper chassis lift up hydraulically to give unparalleled access to the shredding chamber, the floor slats, and the under carriage etc.  The only machine like this that gives this feature.

Rear hood can be opened when machine running safely – Normally on high speed shredders, the rotor starts to rotate as soon as the engine is turned on, the Tim SD1600 can have the engine on and the rotor not turning because it is clutch driven, meaning that you have to engage the clutch in order to turn the rotor.  This is a huge safety feature, as most shredders will open their rear hood, with the rotor rotating at full revolutions.  EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

Infeed roller – Infeed roller lifts up in the air a lot higher than any other machine, allowing it to grab material and pull it into the shredding chamber.  Usually this can be the swans neck on a lot of machines limiting the shredding potential of the machine, the Tim doesn’t have this problem.
