The smarter way to shred pallets

Pallets and wood packaging are an essential component in the transportation and storage of stackable goods as well as heavy and valuable objects.

Our pallet shredders, which are highly resistant to extraneous materials, have been especially designed for shredding these products.

Our shredders for pallets


Specific characteristics and challenges

Disposable pallets are usually rendered unusable after transportation, and have to be disposed of appropriately. But also reusable pallets such as the familiar Euro pallets have to be removed from service at some point, and disposed of due to damage or natural wear and tear. A similar fate awaits all wooden packaging, for example wooden crates for vegetables, large fruit crates and any other packaging made from wood.

The metal used in the production of such packaging, such as nails, screws, staples or also entire fittings, represent a challenge when shredding pallets. Our shredders are robust enough to cope easily with such extraneous materials. They are simply shredded along with the product, after which they are efficiently separated from the wood granulate using magnet separators.

The wood chips thus generated are ideal for thermal utilisation. This also applies to the residual timber generated during production of the pallets and packaging made from wood.


The solution

Adapted to your exact requirements, our shredders can achieve throughput capacities from 500 kg/h up to 1,300 kg /h (roughly equivalent to 30 to 75 pallets per hour).

  • Our 1-shaft LR-class shredders have proven themselves over several decades.

  • We modify the machines to suit your wishes and requirements – from the feed system and metal separation through to the removal system, we can always find the best shredding solution for you.

Residual wood

Wood as production waste accumulates in numerous companies, from carpentry businesses to the packaging industry. Through shredding, a secondary fuel can be generated for numerous applications.

Bulky waste

Bulky waste contains many different and valuable resources which can be recovered and reintroduced into the raw material cycle through good material preparation and the correct system technology.

Commercial & industrial waste

Commercial and industrial waste is collected separately according to the respective components before being processed and reintroduced into the raw material cycle (recycling), or recovered for thermal recycling or for energetic utilisation (substitute fuels).

C&I waste
Rubber & tyres

Rubber waste, and scrap tyres in particular, are a major problem worldwide. Every year, around one billion used tyres need to be disposed of, with the lion’s share being dumped in landfill sites.
