- Save Space: the compact assembly fits in your existing facility
- Save Time: grind 500 lbs of liquid-filled containers per hour
- Save Money: reduce waste removal by as much as 70%
- Save Manpower: requires only a single machine operator
The ST-10E is designed to decrease waste output at drugs of abuse testing laboratories. Instead of multiple employees spending hours discarding samples, the ST-10E enables a single operator to process 500 pounds of containers or vials per hour. Following storage of the test containers, the operator simply places a tray full of containers filled with nonhazardous nonflammable liquid, such as saline or urine, into the hopper. The system does the rest: liquid waste is discarded directly to a drain or holding tank while the 45 mL to 1 liter plastic containers are ground into dense pieces.
The hex shaft maximizes knife placement options while offering more strength, size for size, than a keyed shaft. The 17” cutting chamber handles a wide range of product sizes. The ST-10E control panel features illuminated function buttons, keyed power switch, fused lockable disconnect, hour meter, and programmable logic controller for shredder functions, including knife reversal on overload. Machine maintenance is easy, as bulkhead walls and barriers at either end of the cutting chamber can be replaced without the need of gearbox disassembly.
The resulting compact plastic shards take up significantly less space than intact containers, which means you can fit more waste in your trash and thus decrease your waste removal expenses. Start saving your laboratory money by compacting waste!
