Rapid Granulator’s new 45 Series of granulators was designed after an extensive survey of granulator users. The new series, which includes three model sizes with various sizes of cutter house openings, has been engineered to incorporate many of the findings of that survey.

One new feature of the 45 Series is improved ergonomics — the heart of the granulator can be reached very easily, resulting in fast cleaning, maintenance and changeover times. This quick access is facilitated by an electric jack that opens and closes the feed hopper and a front panel that requires no tools to open. For safety, a sensor ensures the rotor is stationary before the cutter house can be opened.

As well, the double scissors of the 45 Series reduce the force needed to slice through plastic waste, saving energy and running costs. Clean cutting action produces high-quality plastic granules ready for recycling.
