The Maguire Radial™ Granulator features a patent rotary cutting method which delivers superior performance at a lower price that conventional granulators. The unique rotary cutting action eliminates flyback and requires less torque for granulation. The standard unit delivers 6 cuts per revolution or 10,500 cuts per minute with a 1,750 rpm motor. Two feed throat openings are available: 6" x 7.5" (R9) and 12.5" x 12.5" (R18). The Radial Granulator is safely and easily disassembled for quick material change. The front access door is fully interlocked and easily opened to enable unlimited access to material contact surfaces.
How Radial™ Granulators Work
In a conventional granulator the rotor turns at speeds as low as 200 rpm around a horizontal axis and describes a cylindrical path in the cutting chamber. The rotor in the Maguire Radial Granulator moves in a circular path around a vertical axis at 1,750 rpm creating far more centrifugal force which drives scrap to the knifes and through the screen. The combination of very low residence time in the cutting chamber and close tolerances between the cutting edges of the knives minimizes the generation of dust and fines.
High air flow through the chamber is also inherent to the design of the Radial Granulator. This aspect not only promotes movement of granulate through the screen, but also reduces temperature in the cutting chamber improving the quality of the granulate.
