PALLMANN  Ultra-Granulators

PALLMANN Ultra-Granulators


Knife Mills play an important role in the production and processing of plastics of any kind.  PALLMANN Ultra-Granulators (R) stand out due to their electro-dynamically balanced rotors, simple maintenance, and their robust welded construction.  High throughput rates at high efficiency are achieved in rough, every day production. 

The use of special materials such as rust-free and polished steels as well as chemical nickeling for corrosion protection are available as well as gas and pressure sealed designs,and adherence to factory specific standards or ATEX recommendations.

Sample applications include solutions for the Injection Molding, Blow Molding, Thermoforming, Extrusion, such as size reduction of pipes, profiles and sheets, as well as reduction of rubbers and recycling of foam, films and nonwoven products.


  • Reliable, efficient robust design
  • Good accesibility to the cutting chamber allows easy and intensive claning and quick screen change
  • Pre-adjusted all-steel rotor knives
  • Open rotor designavailable for cool operation,important to the size reduction of heat sensitive thermoplastic materials
  • Energy efficient system
  • Easy handling & operation
  • Sound insulation optional

PKM Pulverizer System

PKM Pulverizer System


PALLMANN has a worldwide reputation as the specialist in plastic pulverizing.  On every continent PALLMANN Pulverizers are producing reliable high quality plastic powders for rotation molding, whirl sintering, coatings, flame spraying processes, carpet backside coatings, extrusion and additional processes.


Different Pulverizing systems are used for different materials such as HDPE, MDPE, LLDPE, LDPE, PP, PVC, ABS, PA, PES, etc.  The "ORIGINAL PALLMANN" Polygrinder® type PKM covers the most broad material spectrum due to the large variety of different key segments available.




  • Quality powders with excellent characteristics, high bulk density and uniform particle size
  • No material buildup in the machine housing
  • Precisely ground and hardened grinding elements with special serration, resharpening several times is possible, therefore extremely long service life
  • High throughput Capacity at low specific power requirements
  • Automatic production
  • Efficient air and water cooling of the machine.  No contact between powder and water.
  • Easy access for maintenance and wear part change


PALLMANN Plast-Agglomerator System, Type PFV

PALLMANN Plast-Agglomerator System, Type PFV


The Plast-Agglomerator is a compact, fully automatic, and a proven continuous system that converts thermoplastic waste into high quality, free flowing granules, which are later used as valuable raw material in further processes.

All thermoplastic materials such as PE, PP, PS, PA, PET, PVC, ABS, XPS, PLA and composite materials of any kind, in the form of bulky film, fiber, or foam waste, can be continuously recycled with the same system. 

This PALLMANN Agglomeration process offers the unique advantage of material gentle agglomeration with minimum heat and minimum thermo-degradable damage; the material is heated up with friction heat only and is agglomerated, within a fraction of a second, right below the melting point. Furthermore, underwater cooling is not necessary.

The standard Plast-Agglomerator system consists of the following processing steps:  Pre-cut, Pneumatic conveying, Storing, Feeding, Agglomerating, Hot-melt granulating, Pneumatic Conveying, Pre-cooling, Air classifying, Transport and Cooling.


  • Continuous process
  • Excellent free-flowing agglomerate with high bulk density
  • Material-gentle agglomeration by means of frictional heat
  • Minimum thermo-degradable damage
  • Fully automatic start from a cold condition
  • Low space requirement due to compact design
  • Fully automatic continuous operation

As seen in PT

  • Recycling News at K 2013

    New developments combine recycling and compounding in one step. Plenty of news at K in size reduction and de-labeling.

  • More Choices for Grinding, Shredding

    Many granulators on display at the K 2007 show in Dusseldorf last October were big models—150 to 200 hp—to enable higher throughputs or reclaiming larger parts and chunks. For example, Rapid Granulator from Sweden brought out the 600 model, the largest in its “open-hearted” series, which allow fast access to all internal components. It has a 600-mm-diam. rotor, 100 mm more than the next largest size.

  • What to See at NPE 2006: Compounding and Mixing

    Throughput capacities are going up for compounding equipment of all types.

  • Wood-Plastic Composites: Weathering Quality Issues

    Exterior wood-fiber composites like decks and rails haven't lived up to some of the early claims of long, maintenance-free life.

  • Beyond Decking: Wood Composites Branch Out

    Extruded decking still drives the embryonic wood-filled plastics market. But injection and compression molded wood composites are coming on strong, and extruded profiles are moving toward more complex millwork shapes.
