Chain of the ADuro QZ shredder

ADuro QZ shredder

Gentle and fast disintegration of composite materials

With the ADuro QZ, ANDRITZ has revolutionized traditional shredding technology. The machine does not use any cutting tools, but breaks up the input material gently and quickly by using the effects of impact forces.

The ADuro QZ is suitable for a number of different materials and composites. The machine focuses on disintegration of the input material, but avoids damaging the individual components. Hence, it is possible to access disintegrated valuable waste material quickly, without potential harmful substances emanating from individual parts.

A multi talent at work

Originally designed for processing refrigerators and electrical scrap, the ADuro QZ has evolved from an innovation to a real multi-talent. The machine also disintegrates metal and plastic composites, glass-fiber reinforced plastics (GFRP), metal shavings, engine blocks and many other input materials in a large number of applications.


  • Electronic scrap
  • Refrigerators
  • Printed circuit boards
  • Composite materials (metal/plastic, iron/non-ferrous metals, aluminum/plastic
  • Scrap cans
  • Automotive parts
  • Hazardous waste (paint tins, aerosol cans, batteries)
  • Production waste (steel/aluminum turnings)
  • Glass-fiber reinforced plastics (GFRP)

Benefits of the ADuro QZ

  • Efficient single-stage processing
  • Ideal for a wide range of input materials
  • No sharp cutting of hazardous components
  • Reduced internal wear due to acceleration tool technology
  • Gentle and fast breaking-down of composites
  • Quick access to valuable component fractions
  • Insensitive to solid metal parts
  • Quick tool changing
  • Use of highly tempered special steel for walls and tools
  • Batch operation and continuous feeding possible
  • Cooling system for process chamber and bearing unit
