These Granulators from Zerma have been designed for the most extreme and universal applications required by today's recycling facilities.


They provide high quality granulate whether it be from bottle crates,profiles,sheet,film,pipes or start up lumps within the plastics industry or a host of other granulation projects. The Granulators are economical, reliable, easy clean and have an extremely long service life.


  • Unique Housing Design - The housing cutting chamber of the granulator is divided across the centre line which allows the upper section to be easily opened hydraulically. The screen is positioned in a front mounted easy access screen cradle which is separate from the upper cutting chamber and also opens hydraulically.


  • Heavy Duty Rotor Bearings - mounted outside the cutting chamber in solid steel housings. They require minimal service and are built for demanding applications.The outside bearing assembly eliminates material contamination through lubricant and eliminates premature bearing failure. Outside bearing assembly is also an advantage during wet granulating operation. 


  • Easy Rotor/Stator Knife Adjustment - Rotor and stator knives are pre-set outside the granulator in a supplied bench top fixture prior to installation. Awkward adjustments inside the machine are no longer necessary.  The granulator knives are manufactured from heavy duty high quality toll steel and can be re-sharpened numerous times.


  • Integrated Deflection Wedge Knife - A removable adaptor carrying a third stator knife; termed the deflection wedge, can be installed to control the aggressiveness of the rotor at the first cutting point. This will eliminate rotor blocking during extreme applications.

These granulators are built with a unique "V" type cutting technology which generates   the material concentration around the centre of the rotor and evenly distributes it along the entire rotor length. This prevents side wall material build up.
