Premium Shurfeed Granulator

Premium Shurfeed GranulatorNew Tangential Feed Cutting Chamber Dramatically Reduces Flyback!

The Premium Shurfeed Granulator is a press side & central plastics granulator designed for quiet operation. Hosokawa Polymer Systems has taken its proven Shurfeed? granulator chamber design a giant step forward with refinements that dramatically improve operating efficiency. A specially designed back wall smoothes material transition to the cutting circle to practically eliminate flyback while reducing overall shock to the system, noise and energy usage as well.

Another improvement: New Premium Shurfeed? Granulator rotors run at slower speeds to decrease the velocity of materials in the chamber, reducing the ricochet effect. In total, operating efficiency achieved with this new chamber design deliver substantial improvement in noise reduction, flyback and energy efficiency. Polymer Systems has system-matched chamber, rotor and drive components in this new line of granulators to deliver efficient, trouble-free performance with the lowest possible power requirements.

The original Double Angle Cut? configuration which includes three steep-angle rotor knives and two counter-angled bed knives, provides a high shear slicing action that produces a clean, uniform granulate at high throughput rates with low energy consumption. The new rotor design also puts more weight at the outer diameter to maximize use of kinetic energy and inertia for easier cutting of materials without jamming. Polymer Systems uses larger sheaves to further increase inertial forces.

When specified, a blower evacuation system can be fitted inside the machine?s sound-proof enclosure for quieter operation and to minimize floor space requirements. The cyclone is mounted on the back of the granulator, so it doesn?t require a separate stand and is portable with the granulator.
