OVERVIEW

The Munson "SCC" Screen Classifying Cutter is highly effective at cutting hard, soft and fibrous materials into controlled particle sizes with minimal fines at high rates. It features a proprietary helical rotor design with dozens of cutter blades attached to a helical array of staggered holders called "interconnected parallelograms" to continuously shear oversize materials against twin, stationary bed knives.

Unlike conventional granulators containing a small number of angled rotor blades that slice materials into strips in scissor-like fashion, the SCC cutter is configured with cutter blades along the entire shaft, with no gaps between blades, making total contact with the product. As a result, the material is cut into uniform pieces with minimum fines or imperfections in the granulate and little to no heat generation.

The blades are available in stainless steel, tool steel and tungsten carbide, and are available with replaceable cutter tips that are with retaining socket-head screws for rapid replacement.

Primarily employed for coarse grinding of materials into particles of uniform sizes ranging from granules down to 20-30 mesh, the cutter has throat widths ranging from 10 to 72 inches. Bed screen perforations range from 1/32 to 1½ in. (0.79 to 38 mm) in diameter and up to 3-in (76 mm) square, according to material characteristics and desired particle size. The 11-in (279 mm) shaft rotates at 30 to 3600 rpm, producing up to 1000 cu. ft. (28 cu. m) of sized product per hour, depending on application.

Offered in industrial, abrasion resistant, stainless steel and food-grade construction, the cutter handles fiberglass insulation, potash, herbs and spices, flake materials, chalks, clays, coal, filter cake, sugar, wood chips, foods, foundry materials, grains, minerals, pharmaceuticals, pigments, powdered metals, medical waste, general chemical products and plastics, including scrap from thermoforming, molding and extrusion operations.

Material is fed through the top of an adjustable, double-baffled intake chute, or directly into the front of the chute though a hinged door. An independently powered, variable speed pinch roll feeder is offered for horizontal-rolled product feed. Discharge is via gravity, pneumatic transition or independently powered belt or screw conveyor.

A multiple V-belt drive motor is standard, and a direct-coupled drive and gear reducer optional.
