Plastic Shredder

Shredding and grinding solutions for plastics

When you need to shred plastic, be sure to choose the right shredding equipment manufactured by a company with years of application experience in plastic shredding solutions. Jordan Reduction Solutions is the industry leading OEM manufacturer of dual shaft shredders for plastics, PVC, PET, vinyl and other polymer based products.

In addition to rugged, Made-In-USA shredders, customers get full access to our application engineers for calculations, process design and sample testing in our fully equipped test lab. We also manufacture grinder and granulator systems that can be used in conjunction with these shredders to achieve various plastic particle sizes and reduction levels.

Each system is controlled by a programmable PLC to manage product flow and perform system monitoring. These machines are designed for easy field maintenance and are supported with factory OEM replacement parts and maintenance manuals.

Applications

These plastic shredders are designed for use on a variety of materials from manufacturing processes such as:
  • Plastic extrusions, films and sheets, injection molded parts, rubber hoses
  • If the parts being manufactured are out of tolerance, the items can be shredded, ground and used in the process again
  • Product destruction is required in many cases when the rejected items must be destroyed before disposal
  • Size reduction is often required in order to prepare the materials for mixing or initial heating in the extrusions or forming process
