Can I trial the machines?

If the machine is in stock, then any machine can be trialled by the customer. You can send us your waste material or organise a visit and bring it with you.

You can then see the machine in use with your product and we can tell you how the machine operates and even suggest a better working system.

You can organise a trial here.

All we ask, is we film the trial for the purpose of the website, no company names have to be given.

Can you tell me if all granulators will do all plastics?

Yes they will… But you should run a granulator to 60% of its capability for longevity, if you over work a machine it will not last years! As thicker plastics will need a higher power motor. It all depend on quantity per hr.

How you feed the machine, and how you take the grind from the machine, ie; blower, cyclone and bagging unit.
