Kernic Systems Core Shredder Line Improves Productivity and Savings.

High Throughput and Reliable Core Shredders

Kernic Systems offers the new generation Hocker Polytechnik PHH 160 & 190 Series Core Shredders. These heavy-duty, small-footprint, and automatic feed machine shreds up to 120 Kraft paper cores per hour.

Operators simply insert the core into the feeder, where a pneumatically-controlled draw unit automatically feeds the core through the shredder. The PHH 160 shredder processes cores up to 120” long x 6” diameter and 1-¼” wall thickness, while the PHH 190 can process cores up to 120″ long x 7.5″ diameter and 1-¼” wall thickness.
