The Shruder-817 is a dual purpose, compact, industrial shredder and extruder, purpose built for recycling of used plastics. it will shred single-use plastic items,  which can then either be on-sold to a plastic recyclers or extruded into filament or cord to be made into new products.

The Shruder (™) designed by Louise Hardman and manufactured in Coffs Harbour, Australia was adapted from Dave Hakken’s Precious Plastic modular machines in 2016.  

Two machines - a shredder and extruder are integrated into one portable unit. Purposely adapted to be easily transportable, the machinery fits into a standard 6x4 trailer and weighs 95kg.

The Shruder is light enough to transported to allow access to multiple plastic waste collection points.

It can also be powered by either mains power (single phase) or via a renewable solar energy.

Designed specifically for remote locations the Shruder uses industry standard “off the shelf” components to ensure simplicity of maintenance, long life, reliability and durability.

The system is plug and play with all electrical connectors being uniquely keyed for fail safe connectivity.  The Shruder is engineered with both performance and safety in mind.

Capable of shredding 5kg of plastic/hour (1 tonne/ month), and extruding up to 120 m / hr (or 20km / month).  The Shruder can process raw shredded plastic material, used in building, household recycled items and even houses, as well as extrusion cord or filament.

Shruder Mark II will be released May, 2018
