Bologna, Italy — CMG SpA has launched two new models of granulators aimed at reusing recycled materials for large-scale production to spur the circular economy.
The EV916 and EV616 are part of the 41-year-old Bologna-based company's Evoluzione series for post-consumer recycling. The two models are suitable for wet or dry granulation capacity from 2,000 kilograms per hour to more than 5,000 kg/h.
CMG says the Evoluzione series provides a high degree of operational consistency and wear resistance thanks to the use of harmonic steel, Hardox and assembled modular structures.
A new cutting chamber offers precision to the hundredth of a millimeter, which prolongs duration of the blades compared to conventional models, according to CMG.
The granulators also are equipped with advanced controls. All functional parameters, such as operating temperature, blade wear, productivity, operational efficiency and energy use, cab be managed remotely with connectivity based on the OPC-UA protocol.
In addition, all CMG units for recycling applications have an adaptive motor power function. The granulator can autonomously determine which power level to adopt to carry out its work based on the quantity and type of material as well as its shape, weight, thickness and temperature.
CMG says the adaptive motor optimizes the quality of the regrind material in terms of its dimensions, physical homogeneity and absence of dust while minimizing the use of electricity. The return on investment for the adaptive motor function is less than a year, the company added.
