Dry Or Wet Shredding

The TASKMASTER food waste shredders are specifically designed to be sealed from water and other liquids. These units can handle wet and dry materials with ease and are used for large and small-scale applications including excess, biogas, slurries, and process lines. These versatile units employ two parallel counter-rotating stacks of cutters that intermesh at low speed under extremely high torque. As the cam-shaped cutters intermesh at close clearance, they cut, shear, tear, slice, and rip apart food waste into smaller pieces typically in a strip or chip-like output shape.
