Restore Datashred Shredding Company

New Truck On The Block


That’s how many 2.5mm paper particles there are in a 100kg secure bin-load of confidential waste paper… once it’s been through the multi-knived, brand new Shred-Tech MDX-3 mobile data shredding vehicle now available in Restore Datashred Shredding Company’s fleet.

And did we say that Restore Datashred has the first and only vehicle of its kind in the country?

It’s what you can expect from the UK’s leading data shredding company – an attention to their customers’ data protection, efficiency and reputation that’s second to none.

Increased data protection
In high security mode, the MDX-3 can shred 1600kg of paper per hour.

Given that there could be more than 630million particles, of random shapes, in the back of the truck by the end of such a shredding session, anyone looking to steal personal data would have to have exceptional levels of patience. With a 1 in 630million chance of finding a match for any of the shreds, they could be looking for some time.

This is great news for compliance with data protection regulations such as GDPR and, of course, a business’ reputation.

Improved efficiency
Using the MDX-3 is a win-win for the customer, Restore, and for the environment.

The high speed shredder means on-site collections are completed more rapidly, taking up less of the customers valuable time – especially if you want to check the whole process as confidential data moves from bin to blade.

A quicker processing time for your paper assets means the vehicle is idling for a shorter time, too, which lowers emissions and is less intrusive for work neighbours and colleagues.



Increased Throughput

We have installed a Shred-Tech ST-300E Shredder, into an application to reduce Anionic and Nonionic Polyacrylamides in their raw form, for downstream further reduction in a granulator.

Prior to the addition of the ST-300E shredder, the plant was only capable of 5 to 6 TPH. With the introduction of the our shredder, it has doubled the processing capacity of the plant within the first week.

Paper Shredding Services is the leading on and off-site document and electronic data shredding and recycling company in Scotland. A true Scottish company, who have delivered shredding and recycling services since the year 2000, and worked with hundreds of different business types, both large and small.

Using specialised shredding equipment, whether it’s for document shredding or hard drive shredding, Paper Shredding Services regularly review their requirements for shredding equipment to ensure they are operating at peak efficiency.

To add to their fleet and assist the business further, they recently purchased an MDS-3 18GT Mobile Document Shredder based on a DAF LF55 Chassis and fitted with the tried and tested ST-15H Shredder. Their decision was based on performance and reliability from their other Shred-Tech machines.

“We are delighted with our purchase and the truck is performing extremely well.  We also have a Shred Tech ST-35E static shredder which was installed in November 2016 at our Glasgow depot, and this machine has also been extremely reliable with throughputs up to 3000kgs/hour dependant on feed stock” commented Stewart Wilson, General Manager

Thorntons Recycling had a Waste Recovery rate of 90% for 2016.

 When it comes to confidential shredding, Thorntons Recycling provide an on-site/off-site shredding service nationwide (all of Ireland), with EN15713 accreditation Levels 1-6.

With the addition of the Shred-Tech MDX2 mobile high security shredder, these levels can be achieved at the push of a button at any customers’ site, at any time.

Declan Kennedy, Secure Shredding Manager for Thorntons commented;

“We already had two shredding trucks from other competitors, but neither could match the criteria I needed for a varied market place. The Shred-Tech MDX2 truck had a system to shred to different levels on-site with the press of a button. The Office of Government Procurement had tendered for a nationwide contract which required different levels of shred size, also some business were requesting for a higher level of shredding. We can now cover all levels of shred size at the touch of a button.”

The MDX2GT is based on an 18 tonne DAF LF55 260HP chassis with a payload of up to 6000kgs. The ‘GT’ denotes that this model is a ‘bin tunnel’ machine that collects wheelie bins from 90 litres-360 litres direct from the ground via the ‘gripper tipper’, and deposits the material into an automated vibrating hopper. From here the material is fed to the angled ‘ST15’ shredder for ‘head first’ feeding, before then being further processed by the single shaft ‘X2’ high security shredder that produces a DIN Level P4 shred, or a EN15713 Shred No.6. From here the shredded material is compacted into the storage compartment with twin augers.

The whole operation is performed on the weatherproof control panel from the outside of the truck at ground level, where the operator can monitor the shredding process via cameras, adjust shred size at the push of a button, and also weigh and record material shredded. Unloading of the truck is taken care of by the Keith Walking Floor system. This can empty a payload of 6000kgs within 4-6mins.

Declan also commented;

“The operators are delighted with the MDX2 shredding speed and the lower noise level, which had become a big issue with other trucks. They also like the features of being able to control operations from the ground level control panel and also tailor the settings that allow the truck to automatically switch off once the material is shredded. These features not only help with safety, but also time spent on jobs is reduced, wear costs are reduced, and also fuel costs are reduced. Both operators were extremely happy with the intensive training provided by Global Recycling on the operation and maintenance of the shredding truck”
