Designed specifically for continuous high volume recovery of the toughest materials, Polymer Systems’ heavy duty machines are precision machined with heavy steel plates and stress relieved weldments throughout. Massive construction of the cutting chamber, rotor and drive assembly provides maximum rigidity, allowing close knife settings without fear of misalignment or machine damage due to shock loads or continuous operation.
Only Polymer Systems’ granulators have a clear, unobstructed feed opening equal to rotor diameter for maximum performance through every inch of the cutting circle. This unique design maximizes granulator capacity, eliminates bottlenecks at the entrance to the cutting chamber and dramatically increases effective screen area for fast throughput. A special sound-deadening composite material is used for hopper walls on all Press Side, Large Part, Shurfeed 2000 and Heavy Duty Polymer granulators.
This unique triple-ply laminate has a thin elastomeric membrane between two sheets of steel, identical to what is used in firewalls of some luxury automobiles. It dramatically reduces noise transmitted through the hopper walls and out the feed opening by dampening the sharp, metallic ringing noise caused by material hitting the inside walls. Double wall designs offer little noise reduction when compared to our triple-ply design.
In the last 50 years, Hosokawa Polymer Systems has continually evolved and improved our systems and equipment to meet the demands of the recycling market. Hosokawa Polymer Systems supplies a wide range of recycling equipment from small Press Side granulators to large, multiple stage recycling plants for film, cable and post-consumer materials.
