The Bepex International Rubber Chopper's extra heavy-duty design can shred blocks of rubber and plastic in seconds at a maximum torque of 8 hp/rpm. This size reduction equipment consists of a series of adjustable anvils and rotating hammers, an orifice plate, and optional rotating cut-off knives.
As the block is dropped into the hopper inlet, the sharp edges of rotating hammers bite into the block and shear it into chunks against the anvils.
The chunks are pushed through the barrel and repeatedly chopped into smaller pieces, until they pass through the orifice plate. The optional cut-off knives shear the product as it exits the plate to produce even smaller particles.
Various drive assemblies and chopper sizes are available to meet a variety of production requirements.
