This report presents results of shredder tests using raw municipal solid waste, air-classified light fraction, and screened light fraction. The tests simulated single- and multiple-stage size reduction, using a 10-ton per hour swing hammermill and a small, high-speed fixed hammer shredder. The tests are generalized so that the characteristic particle size and energy consumption can be predicted. Various hardfacing materials and their ability to perform with different solid waste materials were also tested.
