Granulator Rotoplex 50/80 Ro

Robust high-performance granulator

The efficient recycling of production waste within the framework of a closed material circuit is becoming increasingly important. Hosokawa Alpine, one of the leading suppliers in the field of process technology and film extrusion, sets standards here thanks to its decades of experience. The Rotoplex model from the granulator product line has proven itself to be particularly successful for the reliable size reduction of all kinds and shapes of plastic waste. This classic granulator from Hosokawa Alpine is constantly refined and improved and makes its mark even in the current seventh generation by virtue of its reliability and top performance.

High cutting performance at low energy consumption

The high-performance granulator is characterised by its robust design in high-grade spheroidal graphite cast iron in GGG 40 quality, the positive connection of the stator knives as well as a solid and efficient cast rotor. "Besides a sharp cut, our patented cross-scissor-cut rotor guarantees a verifiably reduced energy consumption of as much as 20 per cent compared with conventional cutting techniques," underlines Bernd Kneisl, Operations Director of the Recycling & Granulators Division of Hosokawa Alpine's process technology business segment. Above all when high cutting performance is called for, the Rotoplex granulator – as for example the exhibited 50/80 Ro – shows its true strength. Dependent on the material and screen perforations, the granulator achieves throughput rates of up to 1000 kg/h.

Intelligent machine design

Over and above the high cutting power, the Rotoplex 50/80 Ro has numerous other design features which guarantee immediate benefits to users. Once the top section has been opened, the cutting chamber is easy to access. Which means that cleaning procedures as well as knife or screen exchange are quick and uncomplicated. This serves to prevent long periods of downtime. In addition, the special shaft bearing prevents penetration of the product into the bearing as well as the ingress of excess lubricant into the cutting chamber.
