U.S. Shredder and Castings Group, Trussville, Ala., has introduced the 6060, a new heavy-duty nonferrous shredder. U.S. Shredder says the 6060 is designed specifically to liberate nonferrous metals to enable maximum recovery from eddy current systems and other nonferrous separation technologies. 
The shredder has been designed to process 25 tons per hour using a 1,000-horsepower DC drive.  The shredder also features a unique three-anvil design and round grate holes to provide optimal separation and a uniformed shredded product, according to U.S. Shredder.   
Processors have been looking for a nonferrous shredder that would hold up to heavier in-feed material than lighter hammermill shredders can withstand, the company says. However, low-speed, high-torque shredders would simply rip the material, leaving much of the nonferrous metals still attached and not ready for the eddy current separator, the company adds. 
The U.S. Shredder and Castings Group offers scrap shredders, control systems, downstream systems, nonferrous recovery, air systems, scrap shears, balers and loggers as well as shredder castings, service, engineering, construction and installation to the worldwide scrap industry.
