Cresswood Shredding Machinery of Cortland, Ill., has introduced a new line of granulators designed for dense purgings, large parts, pallets, bins and oversized scrap, as it continues to build a product line so that it can be a one-stop solution for recycling equipment.
Customers are demanding complete solutions, complete systems, CEO and co-founder Jack Cress said in a June 24 interview at NPE2009.
He said the five-model Resolution granulator line comes in rotor widths of 10, 16 and 22 inches and ranges in output from 100-8,000 pounds per hour. They are designed to serve as secondary processors after the material first goes through a pre-shredder, and have hopper openings of 14, 20, 24, 36 and 48 inches.
The Cresswood rotor is machined from an alloyed piece of steel and is not welded together. In addition, all sockets are the same size and a single handle similar to the type that goes into a car jack can be used to raise and lower the hopper and screens, and raise and lower the rotor as well as the back of the machine, making maintenance and adjustments easier.
The cutting chambers for the granulators are manufactured by Italian recycling equipment manufacturer Pagani-Dycomet SA de CV at its plant in Santa Catarina, Mexico, near Mexico City.
