Jun. 14, 2022

As we all know, plastic crushers and and shredders are used for crushing and recycling of plastic waste. Before recycling the granules, the waste plastic needs to be cleaned, crushed, and washed. The plastic plastic is cut into the material standards that can be directly squeezed out of the material. The two types of plastic crusher and tear machine are mostly used for crushing and removal of plastic. Is the plastic crusher in the daily waste plastic application better or better? The following is a guideline for the majority of users to buy these two types of machinery. I hope it will be helpful to you.

 Differences between Plastic Shredder and Crusher

The difference between plastic crusher and plastic shredder machine:

It can be said that the plastic shredder machine is a kind of plastic crusher .

In our daily life, the plastic shredder machine is just a shredding machine, but there are many types of plastic crusher, and various models of plastic crusher matching different materials. In summary, the category of plastic crusher is relatively large, and the plastic shredder is a more directional one.

Plastic shredder can be divided into single shaft shredder and twin shaft shredder according to different structures;

The single shaft plastic shredder is designed with only one knife rotor and a power -driven motor. The power is relatively low and the power consumption is low. Small plastic recycling and granular plants are more suitable for single shaft shredder machines. The two main shafts of the twin shaft shredder machine are used for the blades of meshing drums; they are generally equipped with 2 motors and 2 gear boxes. They have strong power and high power consumption.

 Differences between Plastic Shredder and Crusher

The double shaft shredder machine is suitable for large plastic recycling enterprises, and has a clear quantitative standard for daily production capacity and crushing. For example, if some users need to produce about ten tons, they need to choose a double shaft shredder machine.

Differences between Plastic Shredder and Crusher 

The function and configuration of plastic crusher are almost the same as the structure principle of a single axis shredder.


Because plastic shredding machine is widely used, it is not only used for plastic crushing, but also crushing wood, metal, waste paper, rubber, tires, other garbage, etc., and plastic crusher is only used for waste plastic crushing. Therefore There are essential differences.
