Safe & Secure Logistics chooses UNTHA RS40 shredder

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Slough-headquartered Safe & Secure Logistics has invested in a new hard drive shredder which is expected to enable the confidential destruction team to comfortably – and compliantly – process over 3,000 hard drives per week as part of its WEEE recycling service.

The UNTHA RS40 shredder has been delivered to SAS Logistics’ Northampton site and thanks to its ‘plug and play’ technology, it was reportedly operational within the hour. According to the manufacturer, thanks to the technology and the machine’s compact footprint, the RS40 can also easily be loaded onto a vehicle for additional use as a mobile shredder.

In either scenario, the four-shaft system is said to be capable of producing a homogenous output fraction of 15mm which, coupled with the liberation of materials within the hard drives, will ensure optimum recycling rates.

SAS Logistics’ managing director Lee Spendlove said: “The market is crowded with shredders we could have used, but we opted for the most proven solution, in terms of reliability, throughputs and confidential waste destruction compliance.”

Previously only capable of tackling 250 hard drives per day due to the limitations of its previous shredder, SAS Logistics now expects to see growth of 65% within the hard drive recycling side of the business.

“Expansion of this service has been organic to date – we’ve never really pushed it as we knew our capacity was limited,” elaborated Spendlove. “But we’ve seen UNTHA in action so know exactly what the technology is capable of."

The RS40 has been purchased outright by SAS Logistics, inclusive of an UNTHA service and maintenance package. While predominantly being used by the firm for hard drives, the machine is also said to be capable of handling wider electronic media such as data sticks, mobile phones and video cassettes.
