Blackfriars HD45 Granulator System

The Blackfriars HD45 Granulator is a heavy duty granulator, designed to be a versatile and robust machine, giving efficient, high output performance.

Utilised in a wide range of in-plant and general trade applications in plastics and rubber, include lumps, scrap components, extrusions (section, pipe and sheet) and film.
Machines can be engineered to suit specific applications.

The HD45 is compact and simple to install. Easy access is made for cleaning and knife maintenance.

Full safety features include interlocked rotor restraint, and Blackfriars Scruloks for positive mechanical interlocking of the hopper and outlet chute to the cutting chamber. The whole machine is fully interlocked, yet readily accessible.


The machines are fabricated with an inclined cutting chamber and integral baseframe for the  granulator and motor. There are two rows of dead knives and three rows of fly knives, all adjustable as standard, with an optional third dead knife available.
An additional flywheel gives extra inertia for particularly heavy duty applications. A feed restrictor is available as an optional extra for controlling feed of large solid items.

Shear on the fly knives provides a “scissor cut” action. The rotor is supported on externally mounted two row spherical roller bearings. An open, closed or universal design of rotor is available.

Complete systems engineered with in-feed conveyors, metal detection, temperature sensing, granule extraction, sound attenuating enclosure, maintenance monitoring and system control. Application and project engineering is available to design a system which meets or in most cases exceeds your specific requirements.

Blackfriars offer a comprehensive range of OEM granulator blades, spares and  accessories for our granulator machines and systems.

As a member of the Fernite Group of companies we also offer the
