Traditionally voluminous parts such as IBCs, barrels and pallets required a big machine in order to be recycled. To solve this issue ZERMA developed the ZIS series of shredders featuring an internal hydraulic pusher which increases the internal volume without increasing the footprint.
The ZIS shredders have been designed with big volume parts such as IBCs, pallets and big barrels in mind. While it can be used for in house recycling in big volume blow moulding operations it is also versatile enough to be used for general recycling in the plastic and wood industry. Like all ZERMA shredders the ZIS can be equipped with a wear package for processing of highly abrasive or filled materials.
The ZIS series shredders are single shaft shredders with a large internal volume. The redesigned hydraulic pusher system creates about 35% more space in the cutting chamber while increasing the power and speed of the ram itself. The machines are equipped with a 457 mm diameter ZERMA E rotor with widths ranging from 1200 to 2000 mm.As on the ZSS machines the rotor is driven via an oversized gearbox. The completely closed welded steel housing increases the stability and avoids material spillage.The ZIS inherits all of the advantages of the ZERMA knife and knife holder design as well as standard features such as outboard bearings, hydraulic screen cradle, it's easy maintainability and advanced controls.
