High Shear Granulators - Series 1008
Our High Shear Granulators feature a cutting chamber design suitable for a wide range of applications including hot melt, sprues, runners, and small parts. Specific models are available for each type of granulating and all are offered with optional sound attenuation for granulating at under 80 dBA. Without this treatment, a still respectable 85 to 90 dBA range can be achieved.

Sound treatment is easily retrofitted whenever desired. The chamber design uses economical flat blade knives in a skewed mount for point-contact cutting against the two bed knives. This, plus an open segmented rotor, yields cool operation and clean cutting with few fines, while contributing to the low overall operating sound levels.
A unique aspect of the high shear granulators series is a bearing design configuration, originated by Foremost, which combines the compactness of flange mount style with the freedom from contamination of isolated pillow blocks. These "collar mounted" bearings have the added advantage of permanent lubrication, eliminating grease fittings and the problems associated with over or under lubrication.
Periodic maintenance has been simplified and quickened. All knife adjustments are accomplished from the top of the chamber after tilting back the hopper. No dead spots or corners are found in the lower chamber or screen area, so dust and fines cannot accumulate, making clean out faster and more thorough. The screen assembly is held in place by two push rods for easy mounting and dismounting without loose hardware, yet is held firmly with positive seating and sealing. Commonly removed cabinet components clamp in place, and can be removed and replaced in moments, without tools.
General Purpose Model
General purpose high shear granulators are suitable for batches of sprues and runners, scrap parts, bottles and the like, with a 10" x 8" throat opening. It is extremely compact with a 24" x 33" floor space requirement and a 4' height to tray. Caster mounting is standard, as is bin discharge, with blower unloading a popular option. The conventional hopper is fully baffled to minimize flyback.
