Description of the Cumberland 8x12 Auger-Fed Granulator

Cumberland granulators are a trusted resource in the size reduction industry, and their line of Auger-Fed Granulators is a good example of the company's innovation. Designed to be portable and yet also heavy duty, the Auger-Fed Granulators provide mobile function and high throughput. The 8x12 Auger-Fed Granulator is the mid-range model that can integrate with thermoformed web, sprue, runner, small parts, and blow-molded scrap processes. It features an oversized infeed opening of 152 mm x 305 mm and a hopper design that feeds directly into the one-piece reversed flight auger. This is located in the slant cut shearing designed cutting chamber, which provides easy access and maintenance through the hinged lid and screen drawer. The rotor itself has three slanted knives that come against the two counter slanted bed knives. This action creates a unique shearing function and also prevents any risks for jamming inside of the chamber. The unit runs on a D2 rotor that utilizes the heavy duty auger chain drive and a 3.7 to 5.6 kW motor.

The auger design - a reversing flight and continuous weld - also eliminates the risks of wrapping at the runners even before the materials enter the cutting chamber. The machine features a lockout chain and emergency stop button at the end of the auger's trough for additional safety. In addition to the durable knives and easily accessible chamber, 8x12 Auger-Fed Granulator from Cumberland also has a reversible screen. The standard option has 8mm openings and can be reached easily from the cutting chamber. Its reversible design ensures long-life and reduced operating costs. The machine is operated by IP-55 controls and is mounted on a sturdy base that can be easily relocated via the fixed and swivel casters. The Cumberland 8x12 Auger-Fed Granulator has an anticipated throughput of roughly 114kg per hour (more than 250 pounds) that is captured in standard discharge bin, and can be further equipped with a large list of standard options.

The options for the 8x12 model include the increased or decreased auger length; an adjustable wheel at the auger end; hard face welding in the cutting chamber; carbide coating or hard face welding on the rotor unit; carbide coating on the screen with options for 3mm, 5mm, and 6mm openings; base leg extensions; and an oversized collection bin or pneumatic evacuation system.If you are looking for a mobile and durable size reduction unit, the Cumberland 8x12 Auger-Fed Granulator is a reliable and affordable solution.
