FOR OBJECTIVE ADVICE ASK
THE ONLY MANUFACTURER
OF ALL SIX TYPES

No single piece of size reduction equipment is best at everything. Which is why you should specify your requirements before specifying your equipment.

Problem is, most manufacturers make only one or two kinds of size reduction equipment, so objective advice about the best one for you may be hard to find.

But MUNSON® manufactures 10 types, six of which are shown above — and offers free lab testing on them all. So in addition to being objective, MUNSON can tell you precisely how effective — or ineffective — each type would be at meeting your specific cost and performance requirements.

So before you price-out size reduction equipment, spec it out with the expert help of a MUNSON engineer — at no cost or obligation. And take the risk out of buying size reduction equipment.
