Houston-based Industrial Service Solutions recently installed a complete 7090 automobile shredder plant built by its Recycling Technologies (ISS-RT) division at Prestige Auto and Metal Recycling in Houston.

“The 7090 was designed to fit the gap between a 6090 shredder and an 80104,” explains Bill Tigner, ISS-RT vice president. “The 70-inch-diameter rotor gives an operator 32% more hammer impact than a 60-inch rotor and is built with the same thicknesses as our heavy duty 80-inch mill.”

An ISS-AmeriMex 4,000-horsepower AC medium-voltage Enforcer variable speed drive runs the system, which has the capability to process up to 100 tons of material per hour depending on feedstock. ISS designs, engineers and manufactures motors and drives in-house at its Houston facility. ISS’ CPL Systems division in Lafayette, La., will supply the shredder controls including housing, control chair, monitors, camera system, and electrical panels.

The ferrous processing line as well as the nonferrous plant will use SGM Magnetics electro-drum magnets and eddy currents. The nonferrous plant will feature an action taper-slot screen by Action Vibratory Equipment which ends the need for trommel screening.

“Looking at our needs for capacity as well as the need for processing heavier scrap, there was no comparison in the 7090 and the 60-inch shredders,” comments Prestige owner Keny Daniele. “The 7090 will give us years of growth potential.”

ISS has 45 locations providing field services, service shops, and supply shops. The company offers complete stationary shredders including their castings and wear parts, AmeriMex motors and controls, emission controls, shredder explosion mitigation, and the Taurus US line of scrap shears and balers.
