The new shredder-granulator with the distinctive name „Polyplex“ made by Hosokawa Alpine is THE innovative solution for the size reduction of plastic materials of any type.
Alpine‘s Polyplex shredder-granulator combines a vertically arranged shredder rotor with a granulator rotor.
The machine concept has been adapted to meet customer requirements and was launched on the market as the Polyplex machine – and that at an attractive price. In practice, the simultaneous feed of different plastic waste constitutes a considerable advantage: presorting or dosed material feed are now things of the past!
Principle of operation
The material is charged to the shredder section by means of the mechanical feed unit. The pre-comminuted material falls as the result of gravity into the granulator section and is comminuted there to granulator fineness. Whereas the shredder rotor permits self-dosing, the granulator rotor guarantees product fineness values to approx. 5 mm. The feed material is supplied by means of a pusher installed in the channel. This allows feed material lengths of up to 6 metres. As a result of the combination of shredder and granulator, the comparatively small machine can process, for example, machine purgings of up to several hundred kilos – if necessary together with profiles, pipes and trims.
