Conair GP shredders are compact and affordable

July 6, 2023
The series is designed to serve as an entry-level line of shredders for small to moderate amounts of hard scrap.

GP-series shredders So-called because they are designed for general-purpose (GP) applications, these single-rotor shredders from Conair are designed to handle small to moderate throughputs of purgings, pipe and profile scrap, or sheet scrap. They are available in two models: the GP 924, which has a 24-inch cutting chamber; and the GP 935 with a 35-inch chamber. The rotor on both models is made of 8.7-inch-diameter steel, and is equipped with four-sided, indexable cutting knives that cut against a fixed-blade knife that has dual cutting edges. Both the fixed-blade and indexable blades can be unbolted and rotated to keep a fresh edge in action between sharpenings. The shredders have a large, open-top in-feed hopper that can accommodate gaylord-sized batch feeds as a standard feature, and a low-maintenance hydraulic ram to drive scrap into the cutting chamber.   

What’s new? The GP series. 

Benefits Compact size and affordability. The GP series was designed to serve as an entry-level line of shredders for processors that need to reduce hard scrap too large for a granulator, but at a lower throughput and price than that of a larger shredder. It also delivers the reliability and low-maintenance service usually only seen on larger equipment. The shredders offer high cutting torque at relatively low rotor RPM, allowing them to cut even thick scrap with limited noise.
