The new single shaft grinder using small nibble type cutting teeth on a rotating assembly is one of the newest applications of old technology being applied to the waste industry. Watch this grow in its uses as it can process a wide variety of materials but is limited to its production rates as compared to other equipment. Its not a cure all but does help round out the needs of the industry.
Contrary to many who would like to make this machine seem high tech ...its just a box with one shaft and a ram that presses material on the rotating shaft to rip andtear material into smaller pieces. Its just like your grandmothers music box with the round music cylinder acting as the grinding head....its just made bigger...and built to industrial standards so that you have a very reliable machine. Use it properly and it will last an average of 25 to 50 years.
The Single Shaft Grinder is a machine designed to process a wide variety of materials. The design is now worldwide and originated from a number of machine designs most of which were around in the 1970's and 1980's for grinding wire and wood. When waste products and recycling began to address processing needs it began its new life toward processing waste materials.
The design was brought back to life by several groups, all at the same time.
One of the major pioneers for this machines commercial success, was the Eurohansa Group from Germany and with their promotion and significant contributions such as the Republic Machine Group via George Sotsky and Doug King of Louisville Ky and the Weima Group via Peter Roussler of Germany and the Retech Vecoplan Group via Marty Kennedy of North Carolina it has become a major influence in the industry today.
Our experience as a manufacturer of recycling began with the life long ambition and work of Vernon Burda ( 1927-2005 ) and his son Dan Burda ( 1953 - ) of Wilsonville Oregon ( USA ), who brought into existence the commercial access of their Patented Electric and Hydraulic Driven Shear Type Shredders and the companies they founded such as the "Saturn Shredder, SSI ( Shredding Systems Inc ) , Eidal Shredder, Burda Group Shredder, Global Development Shredder and the Shredderhotline.com Shredder.
Successful applicationsworldwide with companies like Boeing, Metro Miami Dade, Chemung County NY, Stamford CT Recycling and Transfer Station, Mercedes Freightliner, and 8000 other locations worldwide.
