Screenless granulator for clean applications

The SRS Bi-Cutter CRD (Clean Room Design) screenless granulator can be placed in a low-particulate molding area at press side. The granulator provides a completely controlled processing environment that allows a full manufacturing cell operation within a low particulate molding area?an area with airborn particles comparable to a Class 100,000 cleanroom, but without the microbiological or hyac testing.

The slow speed of the granulator contributes to a dust-free environment. The hopper design prevents plastic particles from entering the environment, and particles from the cutting chamber are retained within a magnetically sealed enclosure. To ensure that the processing system meets low particulate molding area requirements, a special regrind collection bin is used. The system is currently used for producing medical components but it can be used for any injection molding application.The granulator is said to provide a number of benefits including lower material costs; clean, uniform regrind; reduced material handling costs; and improved regrind usage versus virgin material.
