Virtus Equipment, Crystal Lake, Il., will introduce a new line of tangential granulators at NPE2015. The C 25 and C 40 Series units feature a specially designed cutting chamber that draws the product into the lower bed knife. There, the cutting action traps material between the rotor knife and bed knife, for efficient and consistent cutting. Virtus adds that this configuration minimizes the bouncing of parts and optimizes processing of bulky scrap. By virtue of that, Virtus says it can take on larger scrap items from processes like blow molding and rotational molding.
