US Shredder Adds New Automatic ASR (Fluff) Loading System For Downstream Systems

11 February 2013



Trussville, AL…  US Shredder and Castings Group has successfully designed, manufactured and installed an Automatic ASR Loading system (Model: AFL-4).   Through a proprietary design using a heavy duty gantry, conveyors and sensors, the AFL will automatically load ASR in four 20 foot open top containers or two 40 foot trucks after being processed through a shredder downstream.  The customers who have installed the AFL-4 wanted to eliminate the need for a front-end loader to load containers and trucks.   They also wanted to eliminate the added dust and dirt in the air from the double handling of the ASR.   The new system achieves both of these goals for them.  A cleaner shredder environment and lower operating costs are achieved through use of the system.  The reduction of the need for a front-end loader and driver also achieves a quick return on investment. 

The US Shredder and Castings Group offers scrap shredders, control systems, downstream systems, non ferrous recovery, air systems, scrap shears, balers, and loggers; as well as shredder castings, service, engineering and consulting to the worldwide scrap industry.  For more information, please contact Bill Tigner at 205-999-7670 or bill.tigner@usshredder.com
