Choppers/Granulators Maintain High Airspeed

AirTrim offers a broad line of granulators/choppers with inlet openings that range from 3 in. to custom-designed extra wide sizes, and the ability to process materials as thin as 8 microns. With cast iron or fabricated stainless steel housings, these proven designs are manufactured with 3, 6, 9, or 12 blades, depending upon specific materials and applications. They are ideal for aftermarket/end-user installations or designed into machines for OEM usage. Commonly built for the reduction of paper, film, and foil label matrix, these proven components have been tailored to the demands of a wide range of products including plastics, nonwovens, textiles, cardboard and paperboard, tissue, healthcare waste, packaging materials, and many industrial materials.  

The design dispenses a lubricant directly from the cutter shaft, keeping the blades free of debris and ensuring long service life with low maintenance. The single-piece, center-axis rotor includes knives manufactured from a special hardened metal for long life and cutting of very thin materials (down to 8 microns). Bed knife adjustments allow fine-tuning in special applications.   

With processing speeds of 1700 RPM at 60Hz, AirTrim granulators/choppers maintain a high airspeed to process adhesives efficiently without blockages. A non-stick coating is available for these materials.  An effective center-axis lubrication system requires little oil, and includes an oil tank with automatic regulation.
