Virtus Equipment is marketing its line of granulators and shredders to the North American market.
Virtus officials said the company is the primary supplier of shredders and granulators to several major brands before kicking off its own North American sales in March 2015, and the company claims to have thousands of machines in operation in North America.
The company's North American operations are in a 21,000-square-foot facility in Crystal Lake, Ill., in the Chicago area. The operation stocks machines and aftermarket parts, as well as runs a material testing center. Virtus' test laboratory helps companies make equipment decisions.
Support personnel were prior employees of Cumberland, according to Virtus.
Virtus granulator product lines include slow-speed, beside-the-press models, the A series, and the compact soundproofed granulators of the C series, used with plastic processes. The large H heavy-duty granulators also are used in processing, as well as high-throughput jobs and post-consumer recycling.
Turning to single-shaft shredders, Virtus offers the small L series for purgings, the G and V series for general applications, and the X series to reach higher throughputs.
The P series pipe shredder can handle pipes up to four feet in diameter and 20 feet long, without the need for precutting, according to Virtus.
