Fives Fletcher - Vertical Shredder 


Designed to achieve very fine preparation of sugar cane by separating the fibres and opening the cell wall efficiently. This allows the subsequent extraction process to maximise the removal of the sucrose bearing juice from the prepared cane.

The Vertical Shredder of Fives Fletcher has been designed by operating mill engineers to meet their own very demanding specifications. The rotor design gives complete coverage over the width of the machine. The swing hammers overlap each other slightly to ensure that there is total swept area coverage even when worm.
