Volume of plastic recycled a day ?

25/03/2018 at 13:47

Hello !

I am Christian a french entrepreneur, based in Angers, Maine-et-Loire

Which volume (before being shredded), (like 1, 2, 3, …. cubic meter trash container) does or can your machine as shown here recycle a day, working 5 hours a day ?

I wish to build a shredder to recycle about 100 people plastic trsh.
Let’s say i am willing to shred about three cubic meters a day (working 5 hours a day).

Would this shredder here fit ?

How can I maultiply the dimmensions of the shredder on the blueprints in order to reach my goals of three cubic meters a day ?

Thanks a lot for your assistance

Hi Chris- Answering your question will be quite difficult because the shredder is built with any motor from 1.5kw to 3kw and possibly different speeds. Also, all plastic types shred differently whether PET, HDPE, PP, etc. The size, part shapes, thickness of the items will also affect the throughput. That being said, you should be able to shred your target of 3 cu meters per day. Just be sure to completely clean your shredder after each type of plastic use. You do not want any of these materials mixed.
