The loose feed material is loaded into the infeed hopper. A hydraulically driven slide pushes the material along the base plate and toward the shredding system. The feed material is shredded between the rotor equipped with blades and the counter-blade on the static blade seat. Once the shredded material reaches a defined particle size, it falls out of the machine through a screen basket. The size of the discharge material is defined by the hole pitch of the screen. It can range from 10 to 120 mm.

The BHS Universal Shredder has been designed for conventional recycling facilities and use in the manufacturing industry. The primary goal for both applications is to achieve low processing costs per metric ton.
