Description of the Cumberland 1628X Beside-The-Press (1600X Series) Granulator

The Cumberland 1628X Beside-The-Press Granulator is the mid-sized model in this series and offers an ample 28" cutting chamber. The cutting circle is 16" and heads from the pivoting hopper into the large, machined, bolted, and doweled cutting chamber. Here, the reject or scrap materials from extrusion applications or molding processes will encounter the three knife open scooped rotor. This is equipped with D2 knives that are made according to Cumberland's proprietary processes, providing uniform cuts as well as long life and durability. The processing is handled by the 20HP TEFC motor that is supported by the oversized solid flywheel, the double sealed bearings, and the rotating end discs. The bearings are permanently sealed to eliminate any risks of contamination and the discs prevent heat buildup or friction during processing.

The machined, doweled, and bolted construction of the unit helps to provide sound attenuation and the vibration pad on the stationary base makes the machine an appealingly quiet performer. Even with these features, the Cumberland 1628X Beside-The-Press Granulator is capable of handling around 1500 pounds per hour throughput and can be fed via conveyor, robot, or hand applications. This makes it impressively flexible and very powerful. The low profile design and the surrounding enclosure give easy access to the drop down removable screen cradle and the machined, bolted, and doweled cutting chamber. Upgrades are also possible: the Cumberland 1628X Beside-The-Press Granulator can be equipped with up to a 40HP TEFC motor, a variety of infeed devices, a five knife rotor, vacuum discharge, wear resistant knives, and caster mounts of mobility. If your processing requires convenient and powerful size reduction, this mid-sized granulator will prove an exceptional value. It is easy to operate, using NEMA Type 12 controls with a complete set of safety interlocks, and just as easy to maintain. It is meant to provide long term usage and yet also have long life while processing many different materials.
