Ferrous scrap metal includes metals that can be reclaimed for use through traditional ferrous scrap recovery systems. These metals include a wide variety of light ferrous scrap such as sheet steel, 55 gallon drums, white goods, and other forms of loose tin. Heavier ferrous scrap can be processed through the Saturn hammermill line of shredders which also produce a more consistent, higher density shred. Shredders prepare the metals for further separation or directly to end ferrous scrap consumers. Additional Granutech machinery such as the MAC Magnum Logger, or MAC Big MAC auto crusher can compact and densify larger ferrous items reducing transportation costs.
Quad shaft shredders can also reduce and process ferrous scrap producing a consistent size end product. Dual or quad shaft shredders break bales or briquettes of pre-processed metal scrap for final size reduction and separation. Integrated systems include shredders and hammer mills with feed and discharge systems along with separation processes for producing a clean ferrous end product.
