Available in 3- and 5- knife rotors, with high shear or steep angle rotors, the CT500 series encompasses the design elements for the widest variety of application needs. A side mount motor design permits drive motor to be right-hand or left-hand positioned and completely opens rear service area for maintenance and cleanout.
The CT500 Series includes 28, 36 and 48 inch wide models for a wide range of applications
Offset cutting chamber, 2 Twinshear? bed knives, top access: single edge, HCHC
Cutting chamber geometries are available for tangential, offset, and 3-bed knife orientations
Discharge is right-hand or left-hand regardless of motor placement
Innovative design creates enlarged screen area via segmented swing-down reversible screens which provides optimized accessibility, increased throughput and minimal clean out and maintenance access time
Rotational side walls limit friction and smearing and improve granulate quality. Outboard bearing mounting increases bearing protection to the highest level, and eases maintenance steps
The X Series also features low-heat granulation made possible through its unique rotor and cutting chamber design that prevents polymer "melt-down" and virtually eliminates "endplate smearing". This is accomplished by combining the Twinshear® rotor design with rotating end discs.
