For Thick Pipes
Grinding of pipes with large diameters usually entails a large footprint. The powerful mills in this segment usually have a vertical feed and are thus correspondingly large. Henrich Dreher GmbH & Co. KG, Aachen, Germany, has addressed this problem with its KX HZ series of granulators. The series is equipped with an inclined grinding housing that allows for a horizontal mill feed and with a downwardly opening, enlarged grinding chamber. According to the manufacturer, the high throughput comes with low energy consumption, which is achieved through the specially developed "genuine" cross-cutting and the solid design of the rotors.
Optimum utilization and low operator intervention ensure load-dependent machine control. The granulator can handle pipes and other bulky items with a diameter up to 1,000 mm. When combined with a 10 mm sieve, throughput performances can be as high as 1,500 kg/h.
