Steel Shredders | The Ultimate FAQ Guide

In this article, you will learn about everything you want to know about steel shredders.

This article will guide you from the definition, working mechanism, use, cost, delivery, and other features of steel shredders.

Steel shredders are the kind of machines used in scrap metal yards, to reduce the size of your scrap metal to get fine metal pieces.

Steel shredders are critical,  because they produce small-sized transportable high-value raw metal pieces, for the industrial manufacturing of different products.

Let us learn in detail about Steel Shredders.

Steel Shredder

1) What Is A Steel Shredder?

A steel shredder is a machine which tears, cut or hammer any size of metal into small raw pieces, able to transport easily and sell at a high price.

Steel shredders are widely used in scrap yards and industries to produce high-quality raw material to build other things.

Steel shredders come in all sizes, shapes, electric consumption, and other features to fulfill your needs.

Steel shredders can be a single shaft for soft metals or a double shaft for rigid material, or a hammer type steel shredder,can have screening machines for separating raw material from waste, or simply a shredder machine just to shred metal; it all depends on your requirements.
As the manufacturer of steel shredder, we have the above three different random models for you to choose from, but in this article, we mainly talk about the double shaft steel shredder.

Steel Shredder

2) How Does A Steel Shredder Work?

The working of steel shredders is simple yet a little tricky. Let us first understand the basic parts of all steel shredders;

  • Feeding system
  • Shredder box
  • Shredder blades or reducing hammers

The feeding system can be a conveyer belt, crane, or human hands, e.t.c. to feed metal into the shredder box for shredding.

Steel Shredder

A shredder box is a container in which shredder blades or hammers are fitted to reduce metal into small pieces. Some shredders are also fitted with a hydraulic press to push material against shredder rotating rotors, such as in single shaft steel shredders.

Shredder blades are rotating lining plates fitted at a precise distance for the required material to be torn, extruded, or sheared by shredder blades.

Hammer steel shredders have hammers fitted on rotating shafts; they work by hammering down required materials until shredded enough to pass through specific holes in the shredder box.

This is the basic machinery and process you can see in all-steel shredders. Other machines are also fitted in a production line to get various shredded metal outputs.

3) Why Do You Need A Steel Shredder?

In the U.S alone, 62.4 million tons of metals are shredded every year. Shredding metal is a significant and profitable business in this fast-growing industrial world where the demand for raw materials increases every second.

There are three fundamental reasons why steel shredders are used to shred metals into fine raw elements, which are given below;

  • For easy handling of metal
  • For producing raw materials
  • For separating different raw materials

Steel Shredder

For easy handling: Steel shredders are very helpful for processing and transporting scrap metals because small metal pieces require less energy and human resources to process and transport from one place to another.

For producing raw materials: Steel shredders produce highly refined raw materials for the industrial production of products. Non-ferrous materials cover the cost of steel shredders; the rest of the ferrous raw materials can be sold at a high price.

For separation of different raw materials: Steel shredders also come with various machines to separate different kinds of raw materials for recycling and to produce the pure, high-quality raw material.

Overall, metal shredding is a very profitable business.

4) How Do You Use A Steel Shredder?

Steel shredders are fully or partly automated depends upon the size and kind of steel shredder you are using.

You can use any steel shredder using the below steps:

  • Feeding: Feed your material into the shredder box with light and hard material mixed using a crane, conveyer belt, or by hand, depending upon the size of your material and the scale of your project.
  • Output: Select the kind of shredder, size, and speed of shredder according to your material and desired output.
  • Separation: You can further process the shredded output to isolate different raw materials individually using magnets, cleaning, and magnetic separator systems to make pure, high-priced raw material.

You need to select the right speed, capacity, shredding size, separating machines, feeding system, and shredder type according to the materials you are going to process in your steel shredder.

You can contact us to select your steel shredder!

8) How Much Electricity Does A Steel Shredder Use?

Electrical consumption of steel shredders depends upon three factors;

  • Power of motors used in steel shredder
  • The gearbox used in the steel shredder
  • Running time of the steel shredder

A motor is the electrical consumption part of a steel shredder, and its power depends upon the size of the steel shredder and the kind of material used in it.

You can see the chart below to calculate your steel shredder electrical consumption;

            Conditions  Electric Consumption
          Motor Power         22 KW to 350 KW More KW, more consumption
             Gearbox      Lower motor RPM and

maintain high Torque

Low RPM, less power used, less electrical consumption
          Running Time          Depends on user More running time, more electrical consumption
             Formula            Electricity used

= Power x running time

Electricity units = KW x hrs


Calculate your own Electrical consumption

9) Which Materials Are Suitable For Steel Shredders?
