The ZBS shredders have been designed for in house recycling of small lumps and purges from injection and blow molding processes. The typical input materials are small and medium sized cakes such as head waste.

The machine also can be used to destroy sensitive products or to recycle small batches of low volume products to avoid contamination of the main product line.
