Description of the Cumberland 1218X Beside-The-Press (1200X Series) Granulator
From Cumberland, a trusted name in the size reduction industry, comes the 1200X series of Beside the Press granulators. These granulators are designed to meet many demands and challenges and deliver all of these features in a compact and user-friendly machine. The Cumberland 1218X Beside-The-Press Granulator is the mid-sized model in this series and features a conveniently large 18" infeed throat. The hopper can be hand loaded or integrated with conveyor and robotic operations as well. The intake is matched by the throughput that can manage roughly 750 pounds per hour. This is possible thanks to the rugged TEFC motor that can provide from 7.5 to 25 HP depending upon the model selected. The Cumberland 1218X processes such materials as injection and blow molding scrap, and extrusion materials as well. These materials are sent into the large cutting chamber (with a 12" cutting circle) where the rotor (a three knive open slant, scooped wing design) works with two bed knives (crafted from HCHC D2 OEM) to create uniform granulate. This is then discharged via the metal bin discharge mechanism. This design enables bulky materials to be easily handled while the solid flywheel drive works to eliminate any inertia from heavier demands. The cutting chamber is machined, bolted, and doweled to ensure optimal performance, but this also makes it a very quiet or sound attenuated model.
The Cumberland 1218X Beside-The-Press Granulator will function at 85 decibels and work well in a variety of settings. The scooped wings of the rotor and the rotating end discs reduce heat and air cool the unit. These features allow this compact and portable granulator to serve many purposes in a single setting and be moved from place to place with ease. Maintaining and cleaning the Cumberland 1218X Beside-The-Press Granulator is also a simple task. The screen can be readily accessed and the entire cabinet opens with a single quick release hand knob. Cleaning and repairs are streamlined and simple. The unit can be upgraded to include screens of any size (including common sizes such as 1/4" and 3/8"), and the motor can be upgraded if more power is required. Clearly, this is a handy resource for any manufacturing or processing firm that also requires beside the press size reduction or grinding options. The flexibility of the hopper and infeed along with the durable and long wearing equipment makes it a real winner.
