Hellweg Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG presents at K 2016 its new high performance granulator MDSG 1000/600 BR (“BR” stands for  â€śBrocken”, the German word for lumps), which works on the peeling cutting principle and has been constructed for single-stage shredding and granulation of solid start-up blocks and pipes & sheets.

The machine has been designed as a robust welded construction and is fitted with a solid peeling cutting action rotor. It is able to process, in a single stage, heavy start-up lumps as well as pipes and sheets in wall thicknesses of, for example, 500 mm into granulate characterised by its homogeneity and freedom from dust.

The geometry of the blades used enables a cutting principle known as the so-called “peeling cut”, combined with limitation of cutting depth, This prevents the rotor blades from cutting too deep into the plastic material to be granulated. Material is simply “peeled off” from lumps, as this prevents rotor blockage and guarantees fast, quiet and energy saving shredding and granulation.

With 1,000 mm working width, the 12-bade U-CUT rotor has 600 mm diameter and it can be sharpened a number of times by regrinding. The rotor is produced from a single solid piece of steel and weighs approx. 4,000 kg. The overall weight of the machine amounts to approx. 11,000 kg.

Depending on the material to be granulated, achievable throughput ranges amount to between 800 and 3,000 kg/h, allowing for 5-20 mm diameter sieve perforation and 75-90 kW installed power rating.

Complete noise protection cabins as well as feeding equipment for sheets and pipes are available as options.
