Industrial Service Solutions has secured a contract to install an advanced automobile shredding plant at a major recycling facility in Mexico. The U.S.-built 7090 shredder will increase the recycler’s ferrous metal recycling capacity as part of the operator’s response to increased scrap metal demand in Latin America.

ISS will supply the shredder, 3,000 horsepower AC electric motor and variable-frequency drive from its Motors Center of Excellence in Houston, Texas, where engineering, integrated design, and manufacturing is performed.

“Upgrading to the 7090 shredder will enable our client to both increase scrap shredding capacity, and also process heavier metals,” said Bill Tigner, Vice President – Recycling Technologies at ISS. “The 70-inch diameter of the 7090 rotor will deliver 32% more hammer impact than the 6090 shredder unit it will replace. The 7090 shredder rotor is built with the same material thickness as our 80-inch mill, offering larger-format durability and performance in the footprint of the smaller current unit.”
