Pre-shredders: AKROS HENSCHEL has well and truly established itself on the high-power pre-shredder market!

Thanks to Henschel’s extensive experience in the field of triple-shaft pre-shredders, Akros Henschel can now offer its clients in the metal and scrap metal recycling industries a complete range of double- and triple-shaft pre-shredders.

A pre-shredder is an indispensable machine that, when installed upstream of a shredder, allows users to:

  • increase the shredder’s productivity due to the homogenization of incoming material,
  • reduce the shredder’s average and peak electricity consumption levels,
  • reduce the number of explosions in the shredder resulting from only partially depolluted vehicles and undetected gas bottles,
  • limit damage to the shredder caused by explosions and unshreddable material,
  • limit environmental risks caused by explosions,
  • reduce shredder wear and thus reduce maintenance downtime.

In addition, Akros Henschel proposes machines that are designed to perfectly meet the needs of its customers, including:

  • extremely robust design that ensures the machine’s life span,
  • a hydraulic power unit specially designed by Akros Henschel’s teams, with low maintenance costs,
  • double-shaft pre-shredders with an upper opening system that allows easy maintenance and handling.

The considerable advantages offered by Akros Henschel’s solutions have already convinced these major players:

  • GDE, one of the largest scrap iron collectors in Europe, has ordered three ZDS 250-800 pre-shredders (the most powerful in the world) for its sites in Limay, Montoir de Bretagne and Salaise. The Limay pre-shredder has been operating since December 2010 and the next machines are planned for…
  • The company Rossi will soon see the arrival of a ZDS 220-400 pre-shredder at its site near Avignon (this machine will work alongside the CIC 1110 shears delivered in 2009),
  • Brest Récupération, a leading company in western France, has just ordered a ZDS 250-800 pre-shredder from Akros Henschel, which will be installed at the end of 2011.

The pre-shredder range includes 8 models that cover production requirements from 25 to 120 tons per hour.

Akros Henschel’s core business is the development and assembly of machines designed specifically for recycling steel and metals, and it offers continually strengthened ranges of shears, balers, pre-shredders and shredders to meet the ever-growing requirements of its customers.
