Reduction Engineering Scheer, Kent, Ohio, has launched a new quick-change cutting chamber for large strand pelletizers that is said to permit easy and quick removal of the chamber with minimum downtime. The cutting chamber features a gearbox that positively drives the upper and lower feed rolls and helps to maintain machine performance and dependability. Quick couplings detach all connections between the stationary tructure and the cutting chamber. Other key elements include universal joints that connect the gearbox to the cutter and feed rolls, along with a quick tension-belt release. All connections to the air lines, gearbox, and belt are easily removed, resulting in just 15 min downtime.
