T Series Granulators are compact granulators for in-line processing of thermoformed scrap, including formed parts in the web with optional paddle rolls. The T Series Granulators are ideal for skeletal scrap with and without formed parts, expanded polystyrene, high impact polystyrene, HDPE, ABS, PET, and CPET. They can be positioned under or in front of the trim process.
The granulator recycles the plastic film which is left over from the process of making plastic pint cups. Anywhere from 20% - 50% of the plastic film needs to be reprocessed in order to prevent wastage. This particular granulator is the worst case scenario as it has around 50% of the plastic remaining. The Granulated plastic is passed bag to the extrusion department which makes in back into a roll of plastic sheeting.
The Suresense motor controller is specially designed for Granulators and more importantly does not change the speed of the motor. The way the controller saves the energy is by controlling voltage, Current and torque.
