VULCANATOR® Rubber Granulator is specially designed for the rubber 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 Rubber Granulator can handle all types and shapes of vulcanized or non-vulcanized, natural or synthetic rubber including full bales, sheets and chips.
The VULCANATOR is supplied as a stand-alone unit, with special hopper and stand, or as part of a complete processing system. These units are supplied with a choice of screen openings to optimize output particle size. The VULCANATOR can be supplied for wet or dry applications in carbon or stainless steel construction. Available systems include conveyors, pneumatic takeaway systems, talc feeders, special stands and controls.
Low Heat Rise Granulation
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 features heavy-duty fabricated steel construction and a split-body design with a hydraulic cylinder for easy interior access. Options include stainless steel construction, pneumatic discharge, liquid seals and more. The KM30 features a 150 HP drive to plow through the toughest rubber bales in high volume. The KM10 features up to 60 HP motor and drive to handle rubber chunks and other materials. Both are available with a variety of rugged screens to produce the desired output.
