LM Granulator Series
The compact LM granulator series are typically specified for the size reduction of voluminous, thin walled material applications including loose film (in-line edge trims), hollow containers, crates, PVC pipe (thin wall PE/PP), profiles, automatic bumpers, injection moulding and thermoforming scrap.
More about this product
A key component on any granulator are the bearings and the LM features solid steel (not cast) bearing housings, which offer more reliable service (eliminating the risk of housing fracture or breaking under heavy shock loads). The solid steel housings are offset to prevent dust, fines and/or granulate from fouling bearing (a common issue on granulators with flange mounted bearings), which in turn provides quieter and cooler operation.
As well as operational efficiency the LM series have been designed for reduced service and simple maintenance with improved rotor designs, contained within an easy ‘clam shell’ housing, eliminating the risk of rotor knives lifting or becoming loose during heavy shock loads.
LM knives are straight sharpened, therefore require no special sharpening assemblies and the knife bolts are attach to a removable threaded clamp meaning no unnecessary drilling and tapping to repair stripped rotor flight threads.
- Space saving, compact design.
- Optimized cutting arrangement, for efficient energy consumption.
- Low noise level, from double-cross cutting knife configuration
- Easy maintenance and cleaning, with ‘clam shell’ opening.
- Minimised service down time, external adjustment jig for pre-adjusted knife arrangement.
