The Shredder Company (TSC), based in Texas, has announced the sale of a 124 SXS Shredder System to privately owned Norstar Steel, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. This shredder system will use an 8,000-horsepower motor system and a split ferrous separation system. It is scheduled to be delivered during the third quarter of 2013 and is expected to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2013.

In a release, TSC says that the shredder is the tenth 124 SXS shredder system that it has sold. The company notes that the system follows the company’s standards for efficient casting consumption and ease of maintenance for the rotor and double-feed roll (DFR) systems.

The release notes that the Sailah family, which owns Norstar Steel, is a dynamic group which runs an extremely efficient scrap business. TSC says, “We believe (they) are some of the best in the business regarding total personnel in comparison to total tonnage collected, processed and shipped on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis."

The TSC shredder will replace an existing 3,000-horsepower shredder the company presently operates. In addition to the site where the shredder will be installed, Norstar Steel operates a number of feeder yards that will supply the shredder with the raw material.

According to TSC, the new shredder system is the next step in the growth of the Norstar group and it fits the model of processing and shipping all incoming scrap daily to maximize return on investment and daily cash flow at a lower total cost per ton and with fewer man hours.
