Defense Logistics Agency purchases three mobile shredders to be used at military bases in the Pacific.
, Grand Prairie, Texas, a manufacturer of industrial and mobile shredders and other recycling equipment, has sold three mobile shredders to the U.S. military through the Defense Logistics Agency
Belvoir, Virginia. The dual-shaft Saturn shredders have recently been deployed and will be used on military bases in locations that include Okinawa, Guam and Hawaii.
“The military has over 10 of our mobile shredders so far, and we are pleased to be able to continue to meet the needs for recycling on U.S. bases around the world,” says Matt Morrison, vice president, Granutech-Saturn Systems.
The Saturn dual-shaft mobile shredder uses a diesel/hydraulic drive system and will be used to decommission a wide variety of materials present on military bases.
Granutech says it had to innovate to meet specific military goals for weight, size, portability and throughput capacity while also meeting Tier 4 emissions requirements.
