   reprocessing. The high quality output makes it easier to utilize

   the maximum amount of recycled material in your process


Variety of In-feed Options Regrind Evacuation & Transport Sound Dampened Design
Conveyor feeds, tray feeds, side feeds, sheet and a variety of custom options to meet your application needs Conveyor and evacuation systems are sized for your specific application.  Multiple configurations to handle your material needs. Cutting chamber and hopper suppress harmonic noise and material originated sound
Intelligent Control System

Cutting Chamber Enhancements

Variety of Screens
User intuitive color touchscreen for ease of operation. Network connectivity provides remote access to machine Abrasion resistant packages for high wear applications. The water cooled rotor option limits heat  generation Reversible screens for longer-lifetime, optional heat-treatment for high wear applications. Custom screens: milled back or perforated styles available for specific customer applications

Granulation Solutions Tailored for Your Specific Needs



The T50 Series Granulators offer strong, versatile, and reliable performance. With a full range of size and design options to choose from, the T50 Series Granulator are the best choice for applications ranging from large injection or blow molded scrap, furniture components and appliance parts. The tangential design offers the capacity to process many types of scrap with improved ingestion at a lower power requirement, while the offset design allows for higher throughput of lower density parts. Energy efficiency paired with heavy-duty design and ease-of-maintenance results in a granulation system with a low total cost of ownership

Variety of Options to Create a Machine Configured to Meet your Needs


Determine the best chamber geometry for your application:


  • Allows processing larger parts through a smaller machine

  • Three blade rotor compliments the tangential geometry for large part ingestion

  • Also available in five knife configurations

Examples: Large water bottles, milk jugs, HDPE detergent jugs, trash waste bins, laundry baskets, shipping cartons



Three blade rotor 2 bed knife configuration

  • Limits bite size and allows for thicker walled, high density, part granulation

  • Includes a third bed knife to increase cuts per revolution and maximises throughput capabilities

Examples:  Automotive parts, PVC fittings, thick plastic parts, film and sheet rolls, plastic appliances



Five blade rotor 3 bed knife configuration
