How to Select Plastic Granulators?
Buying a plastic granulator is not a small investment. Buying a plastic granulator that is too large is a waste of money, while a plastic granulator that is too small is not suitable. Therefore, choosing the right granulator with suitable blades for injection molding, blow molding, extrusion or recycling is quite important. These are 4 key steps and factors you should consider when choosing plastic granulators.
According to the required materials' cutting amount to choose the Low-speed Granulator or Centralized Granulator.
The first step is to determine which type of granulator you need, low-speed or centralized. Low-speed granulators are suitable for materials that require small cutting amounts, while centralized granulators are suitable for materials that require large cutting amounts.
The 1st step is to determine which type of granulator you need
When choosing a plastic granulator, it is important to consider the size of the materials to be crushed and the inlet diameter of the granulator. The maximum size of materials to be crushed must be smaller than or equal to the inlet diameter of the granulator.
The 2nd step is to consider the size of the materials to be crushed
The next thing you should consider when choosing plastic granulators is their material thickness and hardness levels. This will help determine which type of power is needed for different types of materials.
The 3rd step is to consider the size of the materials thickness and hardness levels
Then you need to consider the required particle size. This will help determine the specific granulator model, which then helps determine what size screen to choose.
The 4th step is to consider the required particle size
If you're looking to shred or recycle your plastics or rubbers, you may be wondering what type of plastic granulators you need. Here are 2 options for your reference :
- Single-shaft shredders are a great option if you have thick and rigid materials that need to be shredded. SGS-S series single-shaft shredders can handle large tubes or solid pieces effectively, making them perfect for recycling rubbers and woods.
- If you're looking for something more flexible, a film granulator might work better for you. These machines are designed for crushing all kinds of leftover plastics, including packaging braids, extruded sheets and films. The thickness of the films is between 0.5mm and 4mm.
