Avoid Four Common Traps in Granulation




In the modern times, granulation constitute a very important place in the whole production process. Earlier, processors which predominantly produced industrial parts, were not capable of undergoing regrind, since it created a problem in the whole process, but at the same time, industrialists saw regrinding as a necessary evil.
But, in the modern times, two things have changed in the production cycle, firstly the cost of the materials have gone up and secondly, most of the customers nowadays want to include recycled material in the product. Hence, due to these two reasons, regrind is now being seen as a formidable marketing opportunity, and at the same time as a cost saving method.

Now, since technology in modern days has taken a big leap forward, industries are now adopting cutting edge technology and machine design, which most importantly decreases the energy consumption and at the same time give place for automation. Hence, in todays world there are many quality solutions available which are cost-effective and provide great regrinding methods, without affecting the whole production cycle and at the same time not increasing the production cost, not affecting the quality of the product.
In this article, we will talk about some of the most common traps that plant owners might get caught into, while granulation is going on in their plants.

Granulator Unsuited for the Task

Some of us involved in the production process generally think that there are two things that we should know about the granulator. The horsepower and the throat size, but that is the farthest away from the truth. You can ask any molder, who has been in the granulation business, and he will tell you, that sometimes the material float inside the granulator. When the material bounces around in the interior chamber, it leads to a very poor regrind quality and, the machine will also give lower throughputs.
Hence, it is really important that the granulator is designed specifically for your usage. If not, you can expect a lower grind quality and bad throughputs from the granulator. Hence, manufacturers nowadays make granulators exactly as per your need, by taking in information from you, about material, method of feeding, part description and dimension etc.

Granulator that is Hard to Maintain

Maintenance of granulators are the most laid-back thing in a plant. Most of the times, it is neglected because of time considerations, which mean that, it does not lend itself to the task. Sometimes, the instruction manual for custom made granulators do not provide information, and hence, it becomes very tough for industry users to know, what the matter is. Lack of maintenance causes the granulator to give poor quality output, with excessive dust contents.

Granulator with Poor Knife Design

Sometimes, if granulators are custom made, the knife positioning and the rotor speed can be a major turn off, and can be a providing reason for poor quality grind. To solve this issue, industry users can look for an adjustable rotating knife, which stay alongside the fixed knife, but this are bolted to the rotor. These can be fixed whenever needed.

Granulator that is Over-fed

Some industry users, manually set their processors in such a way, to test the granulators, that the processors apparently try to destroy the granulator. In the name of testing the limits of the granulator, the processors over feeds the granulator to such a level that it gets damaged. It is essential to understand that, the granulator is made for a particular material and application and it has its limits. Getting over the limit, will destroy the granulator.

Orenda Pulverizers make superior quality granulators and Pulverizers. They never over promise, and instead deliver the most cost effective and reliable service in the industry for the last decade. Call them to know more about their products and the service they offer.
