1) What Is A Shear Shredder?

Shear shredders are called shear shredders because they shred materials by shearing (cutting)

Shear Shredders use low speed, high torque rotating blades to cut

materials into a specific size.

Shear shredders can cut almost any kind of material, organic or inorganic, into the desired size.

Shear shredders are widely used in scrap yards, energy production plants, raw material manufacturing, agriculture, construction, and demolition industries.

Shear shredders come from 9 inches to industrial level sizes.

2) How Does A Shear Shredder Work?

Shear shredders working mechanism is simple but crafty.

Let us first understand the basic parts of a shear shredder for a better understanding of working principle;

  • Feeding System
  • Shredder box
  • Shredding Blade system

Feeding system: There are many kinds of feeding systems depending upon the size of your project;

  • Manual labor
  • Conveyor belt
  • Crane

Shredder Box: It is a high quality, durable box which perform three functions;

  • Encloses shredding blade system
  • Act as a mouth for incoming material for shredding
  • Act as an outlet for shredded pieces

Shredding Blade System: This is the part where all the material is converted into small size pieces. It consists of;

  • Blades mounted on a shaft(s)
  • Motor(s) or Hydraulics
  • Gearbox


Now back to the working mechanism;

  • When you put materials on the downstream rotating blades, the material is pressed between them.
  • The rotating blades have low speed but very high torque to shear(cut) the material into small pieces.
  • The small pieces are then ejected out of another side of the shredder box.

This is the basic working mechanism you can see in almost any type of Shear shredder, no matter how big or small.

3) Why Do You Need A Shear Shredder?

Shredding is a very profitable business in the recycling and manufacturing industry due to three main reasons;

  • For easy processing of material
  • For easy moving of material
  • For producing pure, high-quality raw material

Small size pieces of any waste or raw material are easy to process, such as separation, refining, fermenting, melting, and manufacturing processes.

Small size pieces also easy to handle and move from one place to another, saving fuel and staffing.

Small size pieces are easy to refine into pure raw material, which can be sold for a huge profit.

But how you will shred all the material into small pieces? That’s the part where shear shredders come in because they are;

  • Affordable
  • Easy to use
  • Highly durable
  • Easy to maintain
  • Easily repairable
  • Variable shredding capacity
  • Come in all size and shapes
  • Have high output shredding value
  • have adjustable output shredding size
  • Customizable according to your brand
  • Can shred any kind of matter, organic or inorganic

Plastic and scrap metal recycling industry worth $42.3 bn and $27.8 bn in the U.S alone. Shear shredders play a vital role in recycling this waste to generate a huge profit.

That’s why shear shredders are needed.

4) Is A Shear Shredder Durable?

Shear shredders are very durable. They are made from the best alloys. You can use them for a lifetime only if you keep maintaining them.

Shear shredders are basically machines made out of metal and plastic parts. And like anything in the world, they are prone to wear out and get exhausted.

There are two kinds of parts in the shredder;

  • Longer lifespan parts
  • Weary Parts

Longer lifespan parts: Motor(s), frame, hydraulic, and gearbox e.t.c are the parts of the shear shredder that can run for a lifetime if you do not overload them.

Weary Parts: Weary parts are those parts of a shear shredder that wear out with use. A list of those parts are given below;

  • Blades
  • Bearings
  • Cutting tables
  • Filters
  • Fittings
  • Grease
  • Hoses
  • Oil
  • Shafts
  • Wear plates

These parts must be replaced when worn out. How soon they wear out depends upon the usage capacity and quality of the parts.

The durability of every shear shredder depends upon how often it is maintained. You can use a shear shredder for decades if you keep caring for it.

10) How Much Electricity Does A Shear Shredder Use?

Shear shredders come in all sizes and power ranges. They all have different electrical consumptions per hour.

How much electricity does your shear shredder uses depends upon three circumstances;

  • Running hours
  • Gearbox used
  • Power of motor(s)

You can calculate your estimated electric bill per month by seeing the chart below;

            Conditions       Your Electric Bill
       Motor(s)  Power ● 3KW  to  2000 KW

● More…

More power, more electricity used, more Bill
        Running Hours ● 1 second to 24 hours continuous running More running hours per day, more electric bill
         Gearbox used ● Balance speed and motor power Real time feedback gearbox balance power used according to load
              Formula   Electricity bill per day  =


Power x running time per day

Electricity bill per day =


____ KW x ____Hours

        Bill per Month  

Electric bill per month =


Electric bill per day x 30 days



Electric bill per month =


_____bill per day x 30 days



11) How To Control The Output Size From A Shear Shredder?

Shear shredder output size depends upon;

  • Size of blades
  • Holes size of screen plate
  • Recirculation of shredded material

You can decide the size of the output shredded small pieces when buying your shredder. In addition, you can customize your shredder blade size and hole size in the screen plate( if available ) according to your desired output pieces size.

If your shear shredder is only a dual shaft shredder and does not have a screening plate, it will only give long cut pieces.

Sometimes dual shaft shredders give large-sized shredded pieces; you can put them again in the shear shredder to get the desired size output pieces.

You can also change the screen plate with your desired hole size to control the output shredded pieces size.
