New CBW and CGW Series granulators from Conair Group Inc. feature interchangeable back plates that modify the cutting chamber from a supertangential to a restricted-tangential configuration.
That means the same granulator can be adapted to handle bulky thin-wall parts, bottles, sheet and film that normally need tangential feeding, or heavy-wall parts, profiles and sprues and runners more suited to a conventional straight-drop feed.
The new granulators also feature a large swing-away front-panel door for quick and easy access to the cutting chamber. The screen cradle and granulate catch-bin are mounted on the door, so they swing out of the way when the door is opened.
CBW granulators can process up to 500 pounds of material an hour, using 10-inch-diameter rotors that are 12, 18 or 24 inches wide. The larger CGW units can crank out up to 1,000 pounds an hour, with a 14-inch cutting circle and rotor widths of 18, 24 or 36 inches.
Both machines come with a three-blade open rotor standard, but the CGW has an optional five-blade open rotor.
Conair is based in Pittsburgh.
