Saturn hammermill series This new series can reduce materials to very small sizes, making the machines well-suited for handling items such as military and information technology products that must be destroyed. They also can be used on medical or bulky waste, and in waste-to-energy applications. Featuring heavy-duty plate steel, the series is available in 3-foot, 4-foot and 5-foot diameters and in a total of five size configurations, with speeds of 900-1,200 revolutions per minute.

What's new? The series, which was introduced last year. It now is being targeted for the shredding of brittle plastics, such as ABS, and mixed-material plastics.

Benefits Versatility, compact size and toughness. Compared with traditional shredders, it has a smaller footprint and a moderate tolerance for items considered "unshreddable," such as products with embedded tramp metal. The hammermills also have several features designed to ensure product longevity. This includes replaceable wear liners.
