The BAS shredder has two shafts whereby the shear blades revolve around each other, so the material is cut into strips. The thickness of the shear blades and the distance between the teeth determines the size of the strips/shreds.
Crude shredding shear blades / Large teeth (35 mm) are used for rough shredding, whereby capacity can be increased (to a maximum of approx. 6,000 kg/h) by defining the header side of the shear blades at an angle. This increases the grip on the material that is to be shredded.
Fine shredding shear blades / Small teeth (12 mm) are used for fine shredding, e.g. for the destruction of confidential files after rough-shredding beforehand. Maximum capacity approx.: 3,000 kg/h.
