Transfer stations have an important role for a better environment

The cost of waste transportation is an important factor. To save money, it is important to shred waste to a manageable size at or near the point of collection.

Due to their versatility, Metso stationary and mobile Pre-Shredders are perfect for reducing the particle size and therefore volume of the material prior to transportation.

Waste type

  • Bulky
  • Industrial (C&I)
  • Hazardous
  • Household (MSW)
  • Wood
  • Construction and demolition (C&D)

Especially well suited for transfer station processing

Key advantage of the M&J PreShred

  • Open cutting table reduces wear to the bare minimum
  • Bi-directional shredding results in a consistent flow of shredded material onto downstream conveyors
  • Asynchronous shredding keeps waste constantly moving, thus improving shredding efficiency. With our aggressive knife design, no pushing device is required
  • Central lubricating system is standard on all machines
  • Power pack and cutting table that can be mounted separately to keep more delicate components away from dust
  • Automatic reversal, if knives encounter large or tough steel or cement objects
  • Intelligent shredding routines automatically adapt to processed material characteristics. The PLC control system is equipped with six standard programs, including two that can be individually programmed
  • Hardox steel used in all parts of the cutting table exposed to wear
  • Bi-directional shredding with equal speed and torque reduces wear and improves shredding capability and capacity
