Foremost’s High Shear Granulator has been field-proven for over 40 years, both alone and as part of complete inline film recycling systems. Intended for all types of film and other soft materials, the current design utilizes a center feed chamber and a special adjustable, precision knife arrangement. This knife design yields the scissor-like, near tangential slide necessary for efficient reduction of thin films rather than “chopping” the materials. Clean “film fluff” or granulate is the result, without tearing or heat build-up.
Foremost Machine Builders Inc. manufactures processing equipment for the plastics industry including granulators, gravimetric and volumetric blenders, vacuum and pressure loaders, railcar unloaders, metal separators, dryers, chillers, recycling systems and reclaim equipment. All our machines are available in a full range of sizes on an individual basis or integrated into a turn-key, plant wide processing system.
In addition to our plastic processing equipment, we also design and manufacture material handling equipment and systems for the pneumatic conveying of plastic resins, polymers and other pellet or powdered products commonly found in the food processing, pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
