Challenging materials no problem for Zerma shredders

The shredder will process a variety of film waste, as well as more challenging materials such as PP bulk bags, trimmings and tape, with the shredder being customized accordingly. “There is often no substitute for raw power but many applications, such as this one, require experience and an understanding of the unique challenges of individual materials”, explains Jeff.

ZERMA Africa has commissioned several machines in South Africa in recent months, and sees a growing proportion of the local manufacturing and recycling sector prepared to invest in high quality, high performance recycling machinery. Outside of traditional plastic size-reduction applications, Zerma sees an increase in activity in the wood, rubber and solid waste recycling sectors, for which they have robust solutions.

Zerma will be exhibiting at the upcoming Propak East Africa, 27 February to1 March, in Nairobi, Kenya, and Chinaplas from 24-27 April in Shanghai, China.
