Medical Waste Shredders Series 1 efficiently shred syringes, boxed medical waste, pill bottles, ID badges, and more. Smaller items, like syringes, will need to be placed in mesh bags so individual pieces do not fall through the cutters. Larger shred widths are available up to 1″ wide.
Medical Waste Shredders Series 1 are available in 1, 3, and 5 HP models. The 1 HP model is available in 1-phase power, including 120-volt, and the 3 HP model is available in 208/230 volt, 1-phase power. All models are also available in any 3-phase voltage. These shredders can be used “pre” or “post” sterilization to help reduce volume, thereby reducing transportation and disposal costs.
Medical Waste Shredders Series 1 utilize bearing protection that prevents shredded contaminants from reaching the bearings through the use of false walls and seals. These medical waste shredders include individual cleaning fingers that reduce wrapping and material packing between the cutters.
Medical Waste Shredders Series 1 were specifically engineered for this specific application. Everything from the hopper size to the cutter profile is carefully considered to ensure you obtain the shred size and throughput you require. These slow speed, high torque dual shaft shredders ensure less downtime, noise, and dust emission than high-speed two-shaft shredders.
