Core Shredders

Shred your cores and tubes for easy baling and recycling profits!

• Accepts cores and tubes of any size, up to 24″ in diameter with 1″ thick walls, along with scrap rings and cardboard boxes
• Minimizes your solid waste disposal costs by shredding and recycling these materials

Allegheny’s Core Shredders are designed to crush and shred bulky cores and tubes into strips that are ideal for baling. During the process, cores and tubes are easily fed into the powerful cutting assembly by an input conveyor and a unique series of heavy-duty crusher paddles. The shredded material, which has a 2″ shred width, is then conveyed into your baler with an optional Allegheny output conveyor. Scrap rings and cardboard boxes can also be fed through the shredder with ease.

Each Allegheny Core Shredder comes complete with an input conveyor, base-mount gear reducer, and central control panel. All systems are shipped complete with wiring to each motor and component. Optional custom tippers are available for easy delivery of the cores and scrap onto the input conveyor belt.

• Reap profits from recycling cores and tubes
• Save space in your facility by reducing the amount of waste
