The slow speed granulators in the GSL 180 range feature a staggered 180 mm diameter rotor with widths ranging from 180 to 430 mm. The rotor is directly driven by a geared motor. The low rotor speed reduces the noise level of the machine and creates less dust while grinding. The special design knives of the GSL series can be sharpened easily and do not need adjustment afterwards.The material is fed via a sound absorbing feed hopper that can be tailored to fit various applications and feeding ways. Depending on the requirements the machines can be fitted with a wide variety of hoppers, they are mounted on either low or high level base frames with matching suction bins or bag filling adapters. Quick snap fasteners and hand screws make access to the machine for cleaning and maintenance fast and easy.
The GSL slow speed granulators of the 180 series are mainly used in injection and blow molding processes as beside the press machines to grind runners and sprues. The resulting granules are then immediately reintroduced into the production process. The machines can be used for rejected products in the inline recycling process as well. Different hopper and base frame designs make it possible to integrate the machine with most types of injection molding machines and robots.
