Shredders are particularly suitable for reducing soft and tough products. Available in various types of material, Dinnissen shredders are fitted with one or two rotors with hardened, wear-resistant, and easily replaceable blades.
Dinnissen shredders were developed for the safe and quick shredding of various products in both the food and feed industry and in other industries such as the recycling industry. The shredders contain one or two rotating rotors with blades attached. The distance between the blades and the housing is adjustable and determines the product fineness.
To achieve exactly the desired grind fineness, the clearance between the directly driven rotor and the housing is accurately adjustable. Thanks to the modular configuration and the frequency-controlled variable rotor speed, Dinnissen shredders ensure accurate and uniform product reduction over and over again. The shredders can be used for such purposes as the reduction of leafy herbs, chili peppers, gelatin, and cellulose sheets, as well as plastic and rubber reduction.
In addition to the space between the directly driven rotor and the housing, the clearance between the blades is also very important for the desired product fineness. This is usually below 0.3 mm. Because the blades are mounted diagonally, the shredded product does not accumulate behind the knives and the product can be shredded continuously and efficiently.
Our shredders are available in various types of material. The blades mounted on the rotors are hardened and wear-resistant, but also easily replaceable. Additional stator blades are present in the grinding chamber. The blades move through the product at a high speed, causing product reduction. Over time, the blades become less sharp, as a result of cutting. For this reason, all Dinnissen shredders contain a simple and fast blade change system.
The effectiveness of reducing a given product depends on the product properties, the geometry of the blades and the cutting speed. The cutting speed can be diversified because the speed of the rotors is adjustable. The built-in air circulation system ensures low energy consumption at low capacities. If desired, the shredder can be designed to be completely gas-tight. This makes the shredder excellently integrable in closed-loop process lines, which must be completely inert.
A shredder works because of shear forces. The material is divided into pieces when the maximum shear stress in a material is exceeded. This happens because the sharp blades in the shredder exceed the maximum shear stress in the material. The shredder works based on the blades moving through the product at high speeds.
The product is in a grinding chamber and usually, two rotating rotors in opposite directions are present, to which the blades are attached. In this process, product reduction occurs through the rotation of the blades attached to the rotors.
There is also another way in which a shredder can operate. In fact, in other types of shredders, the product passes through a stationary ring of sharp blades in a rotating grinding chamber. The blades cut off some of the product particles passing by at a high speed. With this principle, the blades do not move and cut through the material, but the material itself moves against the blades.

Six-fold increase of total production
Production has gone from 3-5 tons per day to 30 tons per day. That's a six-fold increase in total production.
Michiel de Boer- CEO - Nöll & Co.
Quadrupled production capacity
In collaboration with Dinnissen, we have quadrupled our production capacity from 3 to 12 tons per hour.

The importance of hygiene and safety requirements
Dinnissen fully understood the importance of hygiene and safety requirements in our industry. They went the extra mile by providing us with all the necessary documentation, all ATEX drawings, and full traceability.
Anton Vleeshouwers- Project Director - DSM
Service on weekends
One day there was an important issue and one of Dinnissen's engineers immediately took action during the weekend. I have never seen other foreign partners do this.

Technicians, not salespeople
Dinnissen's representatives strive for the best solutions. They are engineers first and salespeople second.
Frans van Zutven- Founder and Director - Van Zutven
No challenge is too big
At Dinnissen, they think in terms of challenges, not problems. They don't give up and keep going until there is a solution that satisfies all parties.
Martin Sonneveld- Production Director - United Petfood Waalwijk
Mixers have been running 30 years
Dinnissen machines may not be the cheapest in terms of purchase price, but in terms of value for money, there are none better. Our Dinnissen mixer has been running extremely reliably for 30 years.
Adwin van der Vorst- Directeur - VDV Group
High-quality vacuum coaters
We chose to work with Dinnissen because they supply high-quality vacuum coaters that fit exactly within our production lines.

Mixing time of 60 seconds per batch
Previously, we had standard times in the mixing process of 14 - 15 minutes. With the Pegasus® mixer we achieve a mixing time of 60 seconds per batch.
Lothar Pixa- Director - Planta
Fully automated sampling
We considered several machine developers, but the high quality of the Dinnissen machines and the competence and commitment of the employees were decisive for us.
Arjan van Dijk- Project Manager - Ausnutria
Dinnissen thought along with us from start to finish. For example, they used existing drawings for these new mixers to save us costs in the engineering phase.
Pieter Gorter- Project Manager - ForFarmers
Drastically improved feed-quality
90% of our customers with laying hens have already switched to the new feed produced using the Pegasus® mixer and the Thermidor® system.
