Getecha RS 8000 Series Super Heavy Duty Granulators

The RS 8000 Series represents Getecha largest, standard model-line granulator. While we do build larger granulators with rotors exceeding 36" in diameter, the largest units are built on a special application basis only.

The RS 8000 Series Granulators are designed for applications requiring the best built, most heavy-duty granulators for particularly demanding applications.

Common applications:
  • Recycling
  • Central granulation
  • High throughput application
  • Bulky, voluminous parts granulating
  • Heavy duty parts granulating
  • Main Features:

    Individual machine adjustment by modular design

  • Hopper
  • Rotor
  • Cutting chamber
  • Machine base/frame

    Optimal accessibility for cleaning and servicing

  • Hydraulically activated hopper with side access door (tool free operation)
  • Hydraulically activated screen cradle (tool free operation)
  • Fully removable screen cradle on casters (tool free operation)

  • Screen cradle rolled out from under cutting chamber

    Superior rotor design

  • Segmented rotor for lengthened blade life (standard)
