Zerma machine combines a single-shaft shredder with a granulator

Issue: June 2017 Plastics Recycling

This story appeared in the second edition of Plastics Recycling magazine in June 2017.

ZCS1000: Designed for in-house use by plastics processors and convertors, this new size-reduction machine is the first in a series from Zerma, which says it plans to make additional introductions in the equipment line soon. The ZCS series combines a single-shaft shredder with a belt-driven granulator. Equipped with a hydraulically operated ram, the new shredder uses load-related control to feed material automatically into the cutting chamber of the rotor. The ZCS1000 has an infeed opening of about 59 inches by about 24 inches, a five-knife granulator and 39-inch-wide shredder.

What’s new? The ZCS line, which debuted in May, with the introduction of the ZCS1000 at Chinaplas in Guangzhou, May 16-19.

Benefits: Convenience and space savings. The compact, energy-efficient ZCS1000 takes up about 6.5 feet by 10 feet of floor space.
