Heavy Duty Grinders HD-2 and HD-2H

Heavy Duty Grinders - HD-2 and HD-2HThe Foremost Models HD-2 and HD-2H heavy duty scrap grinders are designed specifically for beside-the-press operation. These machines are constructed of heavy gauge steel throughout, with the cutting chamber a rigid one piece weldment.

Download the HD-2/2H Granulators Brochure.

The rotor is a solid steel weldment, and is offset in the cutting chamber to minimize flyback and noise, while insuring positive cutting of large or bulky rejects from any thermoplastic materials.

A wide range of throat sizes and power options insure a Heavy Duty Granulator sized properly for every molding application.

The drawing shows the cutting chamber of the Heavy Duty granulator series. Note the extremely rigid mounting of the right angle, self reinforcing type rotary knives. The knives are backed up by a solid steel rotor, so that even the heaviest cutting action exerts no strain on the bolts. The two bed knives are adjustable, and are mounted against heavy steel knife blocks.

The design of the cutting chamber, with the rotor offset, insures positive feeding of large or bulky parts, and eliminates the tendency of these parts to bounce during cutting. Flyback is minimized and noise level is reduced since the parts are not thrown against the hopper due to the cutting action.

HD-2/HD-2A Grinders

We offer varying degrees of sound attenuation starting with our "A" series sound attenuation panels around the motor and cutting chamber as shown on the two pictures on the left or our FUTURA "QG" Quiet models with quick access sound cabinets around the chamber and base and double wall sound insulated hoppers.
