Vecoplan Stacked Systems combine the advantages of a plastics shredder with the advantages of a plastics granulator, by literally incorporating both machines into one seamless system. Aptly named, the Vecoplan Stacked System features a shredder stacked on top of, and feeding directly into, a granulator. Vecoplan Stacked Systems ensure balanced processing. Integrated controls continuously monitor material feed rates between all components of the system, including upstream and downstream equipment. Automatically adjusting each component to maximize processing performance.
Efficiency In A Single System
The most time and cost efficient way to reduce large plastic scrap down to relatively small (larger than 3/8”) size is with a cutting rotor turning at slow speeds but with high torque. A shredder does exactly that. To achieve a final partical size of 3/8” or less, a cutting rotor turning at high speeds but with low torque is more efficient. A granulator does exactly that. By combining both a shredder and a granulator, Vecoplan Stacked Systems deliver the advantages inherent in both technologies.
- The first step in Vecoplan’s Stacked System design is the shredder. Fifty years of expertise in size reduction technology is built into every shredder from Vecoplan. Vecoplan’s single-shaft shredders are the most widely used in the world, and offer controllable and changeable shredded particle output size via interchangeable screens. Vecoplan screens are inexpensive and can be quickly and easily changed, allowing you to control and change particle size to fit your specific application – now and in the future. All Vecoplan shredder features are engineered specifically to provide the most effective operation, with more cost efficiency and to make maintenance easier and less expensive. The heavy-duty, quality construction means that Vecoplan shredders require less maintenance and last longer than other machines.
- The second step in Vecoplan’s Stacked System design is the granulator. Once material is reduced to a manageable size, it is then fed into the granulating second stage where it is processed to a controlled, final particle size. This allows efficient in-house recycling of scrap for re-use in the production run. Due to it’s inherent design. The stacked system is a compact
