Volume reduction

Savvy size reduction for a range of materials

Some organizations seek to size reduce their ‘waste’ streams to help maintain a clean, safe and tidy site; for others, volume reduction aids the cost and environmentally efficient onward transportation of materials; and of course, oversized products can also be shredded ahead of further reuse, recycling or recovery activity.

Whether particle homogeneity is key, or simply consistent uptime and throughput, there are a number of shredders within UNTHA’s range, with powerful size reduction capabilities.

  • How can UNTHA help you size reduce?

    We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach to shredding. So when a client first approaches our team, we are careful to ask a number of key questions so that we recommend the right solution according to input material type, size, volume, any output fraction specification, the role of any ancillary equipment, throughput requirements and any plans for the plant to grow. With flexible finance packages available, even the numbers are configurable.

  • How can UNTHA help you size reduce?

    Our technology range includes powerful yet compact shredders with neat footprints, particularly suitable for space-constrained sites, through to large ultra-heavy duty machines with large loading apertures and unparalleled capacity – not to mention some of the highest torque in the industry to withstand resistance from even the toughest materials.

  • How can UNTHA help you size reduce?

    Clients have told us that the way they define ‘performance’ is typically changing. Throughputs still matter, but so too do easy maintenance regimes, low whole life running costs, low noise and dust for operator wellbeing, low wear by design, foreign object protection for a quality shred, and so much more. These criteria drive the ongoing innovation at UNTHA’s Austrian HQ, and sees our industrial shredders sought not just throughout the USA, but by clients on a truly global scale.

“We sought a smarter way to handle and store our waste, to ensure a tidier site plus more money on our bottom line. By shredding the material to a <40mm particle size, we can now load each skip with approximately 5 times more material, which reaps rapid cost savings.”

Barry Channon, purchasing and materials manager
