Force-feed control system lowers downtime

The updated Bridge-Buster by Size Reduction Specialists (SRS) Corp. is a specially designed force-feed control system within the hopper that smoothly moves large runners into a two-stage cutting system for reduction to a desired size.

Benefits include elimination of large runner bridging, reduction of many of the downtime problems associated with feeding large runners into an automated regrind cutting system, and minimal loss of regrind material.

Featuring an integrated electrical system (230 or 460), the same granulator can be used for both large and small runners.

Also, SRS custom conversion service allows customers to add Bridge-Buster to their existing SRS granulators.
