Ease of cleaning and maintenance mark improvements in the second generation of MGL low-speed granulators from Matsui America Inc., Hanover Park, Ill. The MGL2 series comes in three upgraded models (50, 100, and 200). They now have P-bolt rings on the side bed cutter housing and the scraper housing that allow for tool-less opening of the unit in a single action with bare hands. The Model 100 has removed the casing of the crashing cutter, which which can eliminate mis-cuts. Model 200 has redesigned side housings that can open 138° for easier access to cleaning and maintenance. Other new features include two-sided blades for all the cutters and the scraper; a more durable small rotating blade; dust wiper and airpurge function to protect the bearing; and anti-vibration torque arm that extends the life of the bearing and reduction gear by 50%.
