The Screenpod SA-850E is a shredder with a difference. It provides the unique functionality of a shredder that is not only capable of removing a wide range of lightweight materials from conveyed waste streams itself but can also shred it down to size in the process, offering both material separation and reduction in a single pass from one package.

How it Works:

A vacuum head (or vac head) is positioned over the material stream as shown below. It’s connected to the inlet of the Shredair via a hose. As the impeller on the Shredair rotates, any light material passing under the vac head gets pulled up through it, getting sucked through the fan inlet.

Airvac - How it Works

The impeller of the Shredair has cutting blades on its edges. During operation, the impeller rotates at high speed, and as the incoming material passes through it, the cutting blades chop it against the inlet cone, thus shredding up the material and reducing its size.

Shred Air how it works

The material is then shot out of the outlet on the Shredair, where it can then be connected into a skip or area for collection, ultimately separating it from the heavy material on the conveyor and cutting it down to size in the process.
