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 industrial shredder 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. This industrial shredder is the perfect solution for cores that take up a large footprint within your facility.

Each Allegheny Core Shredder comes complete with an input conveyor, base-mount gear reducer, and central control panel. All industrial shredder 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. As with any Allegheny industrial shredder, the system comes with a 1 year warranty!
