A new Maxum 30 shredder from Munson Machinery shreds blocks up to 2 x 2 x 6 ft (610 x 610 x 3658 mm) of highly abrasive materials into particles of narrow size ranges with minimum fines. Each of two rotors is configured with a staggered array of specially treated solid carbide tips, similar to those used on road shredding machines. The conical tips have an interference fit into receiver slots for rapid replacement. Driven by two 20-HP (15-kW) motors, the counter-rotating shafts can grind 1600 lb (726 kg) blocks of highly abrasive materials into uniform particles within narrow size ranges determined by the diameter of bed screen perforations, which range from 1/32 to 1 1/2 in. (0.79 to 38 mm). The two 14-in. (355-mm) diameter shafts rotate at 25 to 35 rpm, producing up to 240 cu ft (6.8 cu m) of sized product per hour, depending on the material.
