High Capacity Shredder

To accommodate both your shredding needs and your budget, Allegheny offers three series of conveyor-fed high capacity industrial shredders. Within each series, we provide a range of options with various horsepower motors, shred widths and shredding capacities. These high capacity industrial shredders range in capacity from 750 lbs up to 15 tons of material per hour.

Features
  • Three Series of Conveyor-Fed High Capacity Industrial Shredders
  • Range of Options
  • High Shredding Capacities
Benefits
  • Versatility
  • Cost-Effectiveness
  • Increased Efficiency

Cross Shredding System

This innovative two-stage shredding process involves positioning two industrial shredders at a 90ºangle to one another. For example, you might add a pre-shredder with a 75 Hp motor and a 2” shred width in front of an industrial shredder with a 100 Hp motor and a 5/8” shred width. The output of the first shredder is fed into the second shredder and comes out as highly secure, cross-shredded pieces that are much smaller than the output from strip-cut shredding.

Features
  • Two-Stage Shredding Process
  • Pre-Shredder and Industrial Shredder Combination
  • Cross-Shredded Output
Benefits
  • Enhanced Security
  • Increased Efficiency
  • Improved Versatility

Benefits
  • Unusable and Unidentifiable Pieces
  • Environmental Benefits
  • Revenue Generation

Hard Drive / E-Straps Shredders

To ensure total security, the physical destruction of hard drives and other electronic data-bearing media is the most effective and desirable solution.

That’s why every Allegheny Hard Drive/E-Scrap Shredder destroys not only standard-size hard drives (up to 1” thick), but also server drives, as well as cell phones, PDAs, smartphones, and electronic storage devices. Our 7½ Hp and 20 Hp models can also completely destroy laptop computers (without batteries). The total destruction of these obsolete devices relieves any worry about security risks. Furthermore, it adds a reliable income stream for your business.

Features
  • Physical Destruction of Hard Drives and Electronic Data-bearing Media
  • Versatile Destruction Capability
  • Models capable of destroying laptop computers
Benefits
  • Total Security
  • Versatile Destruction Capability
  • Reliable Income Stream

Auto – Feed System

To increase the amount of paper that can be fed into a high capacity industrial shredder. Operators can only handle so much paper per hour. By automating the feeding of the shredder, your company can minimize labour while making the process more efficient and cost-effective.

Features
  • Automated Feeding System
  • Increased Paper Capacity
  • Minimized Labor Requirement
Benefits
  • Increased Efficiency
  • Cost-Effectiveness
  • Improved Productivity

Tippers

Allegheny tippers are designed to increase your throughput volume. Consequently making your shredding jobs much easier and more efficient.
