The smartest way to shred pallets

Pallets and wood packaging materials are an essential component for transporting and storing stackable products. They are also highly sought after and valuable for a variety of after-market products. 

Our shredders are extremely tolerant to contamination often found when processing this type of waste and have proven themselves as an excellent machine to viably process this waste stream.

Specific characteristics and challenges

Pallets and other packaging products like wooden crates have a limited lifespan because of the demands of transporting products from place to place. The metal fasteners used vary, depending on the weight of the goods being transported, and present a unique challenge when processing them at the end of their useful life. 

UNTHA Shredders are capable of safely liberating this steel during the shredding process and allow you to effectively separate them after they leave the shredding chamber with overband and head pulley magnets.  This allows you to use this ferrous separated clean material for premium aftermarket uses like low moisture fuel and agricultural or landscape markets.


The solution

Our shredders can achieve throughputs from 1000 lbs/h to 12 t/h (500 kg/h - 11 t/h), depending on your specific end-product requirements.

  • In addition to our single-shaft LR shredders, which have been successfully run by customers for decades, our CR series single-shaft shredder has been specifically designed for large quantities of this waste.

  • Either machine can be customized to meet your specific needs – including magnets to separate ferrous material from end-product or other features to provide you with the optimal shredding solution.
