Double shaft shredder Forrec Type FX-5000

The range of Forrec FX double shaft shredders belong to the heaviest build double shaft shredders in the market. They are designed to process scrap metals under the toughest circumstances.

These double shaft shredders reduce the volume of the ferrous and non-ferrous scrap and significantly increase the material’s density. This will result in lower transport costs.

After the material is processed with this rotating shear further processing could be done with - for example - the Forrec Hammer Mill.

This Forrec double shaft shredder has a sophisticated 4 hydraulic motor configuration (2 per shaft), generating an enormous torque. The low number of revolutions in combination with the high torque will guarantee that this machine can process even the most difficult materials. The shafts are equipped with an interchangeable blade system, meaning that the shafts do no need to be dismantled to change the blades - resulting in lower maintenance costs.

Depending on the material that needs to be processed, the Forrec FK double shaft shredder can achieve production rates of 40 tonnes per hour.
