ISS to install shredder in Houston

Prestige Auto and Metal Recycling will operate company’s 7090 model auto shredder.

October 22, 2021

The Recycling Technologies business unit of Houston-based Industrial Service Solutions (ISS-RT) says it will supply a 7090 model automobile shredder plant to Prestige Auto and Metal Recycling in its hometown of Houston.

The system will be driven by an ISS-AmeriMex 4000-horsepower AC medium-voltage “Enforcer” variable speed drive and will be able to process up to 100 tons per hour, depending on feedstock, according to ISS-RT.

The ferrous processing line and the nonferrous plant will include electro-drum magnets and eddy current separators provided by SGM Magnetics, an Italy-based company with its United States office in Florida.

The nonferrous plant also will feature a Taper-Slot Screen provided by Oregon-based Action Vibratory Equipment. That device is designed to eliminate the need for a trommel screen to perform materials separation, says ISS-RT.

”The 7090 was designed to fit the gap between a 6090 shredder and an 80104,” says Bill Tigner, vice president of ISS-RT. “The 70-inch diameter rotor gives an operator 32 percent more hammer impact than a 60-inch rotor and is built with the same thicknesses as our heavy-duty 80-inch mill.”

Prestige owner Keny Daniele, who says he researched different shredder suppliers for years, comments, “Looking at our needs for capacity as well as the need for processing heavier scrap, there was no comparison in the 7090 and the 60- inch shredders. The 7090 will give us years of growth potential.”

ISS designs, engineers and manufactures motors and drives in-house at its Houston facility. Shredder controls including the housing, control chair, monitors, camera system and electrical panels will be supplied by the ISS-CPL facility in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Industrial Service Solutions describes itself as serving a broad range of industry applications with multiple types of equipment. The company operates from 45 locations and provides field services, service shops, supply shops and parts. For the scrap metal industry, ISS offers stationary shredders, castings and wear parts, AmeriMex motors and controls, emission controls, shredder explosion mitigation technology and the Taurus US line of scrap shears and balers.
