unwind/shredder. The floor sweep shredder is a lower cost alternative to rotary grind or pinch and tear type shredders and makes a great entry level machine if you need to start shredding.

I can’t stress this enough. It costs much less to expand a system if you planned for the expansion when the system was initially installed. If you’re considering a 2021 or 2022 project now, I highly recommend an onsite survey in early 2021. After 9/7/20, NFPA 652 also requires you to have a DHA (dust hazard analysis) on hand. Sometimes both the survey and DHA can be combined. With the capital expenditure friendly tax laws still on the books, and increased demand for capital equipment, lead times continue to be above ‘normal’ from many of our OEMs. Planning ahead with a survey now will allow you to accurately budget for a new system or exist- ing system improvements as we move further into the new decade.” Call (615) 230-9500.
