What is a Carpet Shredder?

A carpet shredder is used to reduce the size of waste products such as carpet tiles, off cuts and rolls of carpet into smaller pieces called ‘regrind’ or flake’. This is essential in carpet recycling and maybe the only step needed before the ‘regrind’ can be reused in manufacturing new carpet products.

What will a Carpet Shredder reduce?

The plastic granulators are ideal for all types of plastics, uPVC, HDPE, LDPE, PET & PP to name but a few. But it will depend on the size of the granulator. From small off-cuts made by injection and blow moulding machines called sprues to plastic drinks bottles and uPVC window frames to large plastic underground piping made from HDPE or LDPE.
