Superior Cutting Action. The rotor knives are positioned in accordance with the latest V-cut engineering technology. Contrary to the older cross-cut action for rotor knives, the V-cut configuration conveys the material toward the center of the rotor, avoiding material buildup at the side walls, as well as unnecessary wear.
Simple Knife Setting. Both rotor and bed knives are pre-set outside the granulator cutting chamber in a supplied bench-top fixture. Awkward adjustments inside the machine are no longer necessary. All the knives are manufactured from heavy-duty D2 tool steel and can be resharpened numerous times.
Specially Developed Deflector Wedge. A removable adapter carrying a third bed knife, referred to as the deflector wedge, can be installed to alter the infeed cross-section and the first cutting point of the granulator as required. This simple installation option allows great flexibility.
Convenient Housing Design. The housing design is split at the center line and the upper half of the cutting chamber can be opened hydraulically (ES 350/500 and 400/600 are manual only). Easily exchanged wear plates bolted to the side plates ensure long life, and the screen is held in position by a hinged cradle for easy accessibility.
Robust Bearing Assembly. The extremely durable pedestal bearing housings are mounted outside the machine away from the cutting chamber to prevent dust and dirt contamination of the oversized bearings. This ensures long life and minimum maintenance requirements.
