HERBOLD Meckesheim GmbH www.herbold.com will be showcasing their product range at the International Trade Fair for Plastics Recycling FAKUMA

18th to 22nd October 2011 Neue Messe 1, 88046 Friedrichshafen, at our Stand in Hall A6-6502
Innenansicht A3 Rotor (PresseBox) (Meckesheim, ) Three in one go: At the trade fair Fakuma HERBOLD MECKESHEIM will be showcasing the whole range of size reduction technology: Shredder, granulator and pulverizer from one single manufacturer.

The HERBOLD granulator SMS 45/60 is an extremely solid granulator for heavy-duty applications: high-performance fibres, composite materials, thick-walled semi-finished products, pipes, plates are typical applications. The granulators of the SMS series are machines with a working width between 600 and 2000 mm and a throughput performance between 500 and 8000 kg/h. All the machines of this series can optionally be delivered with the half-open rotor of the A series (Fig. 1). The rotor knives are held by a limit stop so even under great strain they will absolutely remain in place - even with the highest cutting forces this knife constellation will withstand. Due to the solid forged ingot steel execution, the rotor has a high inertial mass and a high torque. Where small or medium-sized granulators fail, the granulators of the SMS series from HERBOLD Meckesheim will do the job.

The machine can also be used for highly abrasive materials. The grinding chamber is equipped with exchangeable wear plates on all sides, and this also applies to the critical support of the stator knives. The rotor can be equipped with wear cassettes and extremely obtuse cutting angles ("guillotine shear principle") can be achieved. Here some typical applications: used tyre recycling, glass fibre reinforced plastics, disintegration of composite materials in order to separate their metal components.

The new HERBOLD single-shaft shredder HR 62P (Fig.2) is a small compact shredder for in-house purgings. This compact machine has been designed for recycling purgings directly inside injection moulding or blow moulding companies. Often it is only a small quantity of waste; with increasing commodity prices, however, it will become interesting to find an appropriate recycling solution, even for small quantities of waste. With only few investment costs, it can easily be realised with the compact well-priced HERBOLD shredder HR 62P. You only have to fill the feeding hopper, dosing and processing is achieved without operators.

The material is size-reduced between the rotor and stator knives of the tiller rotor, load-controlled feeding is ensured by a hydraulically activated ram. The main drive for this low-speed shredder is an 18.5 kW gear motor. The granule size of the material is determined by a screen insert; screens with 15-to-50-mm-mesh size are customary.

For pulverizing plastics into a free-flowing powder, the HERBOLD pulverizer PU 500 (Fig. 3) is the showcase representative of a whole series of machines with a rotor diameter between 300 and 1250 mm and a drive capacity between 22 and 250 kW. The main application of this machine is the pulverizing of PE, PP ABS for rotational moulding and compounding companies. The pulverization of rigid PVC is also a proven recycling procedure for pipes, profiles, plates and films and well-established in the market. If this plastic scrap is pulverized into powder, it can optimally be reused without any material degradation.

Besides the size-reduction technology, HERBOLD's product range also comprises the immediate downstream machine technology: with the help of the HERBOLD plastcompactor, scrap materials with poor flowing properties (fibres, foams, films and powders) can be transformed into high-quality agglomerate with a high bulk density and good flowing properties. In addition, HERBOLD MECKESHEIM also manufactures complete washing and separation lines for contaminated and mixed plastic waste (Fig. 5).

HERBOLD MECKESHEIM is offering a first test, free of charge and without commitment, on these machines in our technical laboratory. There it will be possible to test the efficiency and performance of our machines under real production conditions.
