Conventional granulators have substantial problems handling long pipes and profiles. In most cases, cavities or platforms are needed to feed large and bulky materials. Because of this, EconoGrind developed the ESP Series.
Because the ESP has a nearly level feed hopper, long pieces can be fed easily. The machine is able to control the feed rate, so there is no risk of blockage. In the event of a full grinding chamber, material feed will be halted and work can go on without any problems.
The ESP Series is based on the latest machine concepts, which have been perfected throughout the years and leave nothing lacking. The machines, which are of a robust, welded-steel construction, are suitable to meet the most demanding applications.
Unique Level Feed Hopper. The ESP Series features a level feed hopper, specifically designed for feeding of long pipes and profiles. The ergonomic design eliminates the need for feeding platforms and helps prevent jamming in the cutting chamber.
Superior Cutting Action. The rotor knives have been designed with the latest V-cut engineering technology. Unlike the older cross-cut action for rotor knives, the V-cut configuration conveys the material toward the center of the rotor, reducing or eliminating material build-up at the side walls and 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 re-sharpened 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 exceptional flexibility.
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.
