The VULCANATOR® rubber granulator and grinder is specially designed for the rubber and heavy plastics industry. This unit has the unique ability to reduce whole 75 lb. bales of synthetic or natural rubber into small particles. This powerful processor can thus drastically reduce processing time resulting in dramatic cost savings. The VULCANATOR® can handle all types and shapes of vulcanized or non-vulcanized, natural or synthetic rubber including full bales, sheets and chips.
The VULCANATOR® features a unique low friction design that quickly reduces rubber into small bits without the heat rise associated with other designs that require cooling devices. Material is fed into the unit via conveyor or by hand. Rugged rotary knives pull the material into the cutting area and disintegrate the slabs to a size fine enough to pass through a special sizing screen. The reduced particles are then expelled from the bottom of the unit.
The VULCANATOR rubber granulator is available in three models. The powerful KM20 features up to 100 HP motor and drive; the KM30 features a 150 HP drive to plow through the toughest rubber bales in high volume, while the KM50 meets the highest production requirements. These units feature heavy-duty fabricated steel construction, a split body design for easy interior access. Stainless steel construction is also available as an option.
