New NCF Series granulators from Conair, Cranberry Township, Pa., have footprint dimensions 30% smaller than many other granulators with similar capabilities. The “super-tangential” cutting chamber is designed to handle lightweight, bulky parts such as bottles, as well as runners and small parts. The super-tangential design ensures that the rotor grips bulky scrap on the downstroke, drawing it into the knives and preventing it from bouncing on the rotor.
Standard tangential and straight-drop infeed configurations are also available, as well as a variety of hopper designs. The rotor can be open or solid with three rows of knives, either double-angled scissors cut or staggered cassette type.
Four models have 8-in.-diam. rotors in widths of 10 to 24 in., motors of 5 to 15 hp, and throughputs of 150 to 450 lb/hr.
