“We process 2-3 million tires per year and the Super80 is robust enough to handle the worst part of the tire and produce consistent and extremely clean output” Troy Hess, Vice President of Mahanta
Grand Prairie, TX (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Granutech-Saturn Systems, a world-leading manufacturer of industrial recycling equipment has announced its next-generation Saturn Grizzly® grinder series for tire recycling and a broad scope of recycling materials. The new Grizzly Super80 (S-80) model, features several design and performance enhancements, including higher horsepower and four times higher torque than the original Model 80, while delivering an unprecedented 10-tons-per-hour capacity in rubber scrap recycling applications. The grinder is flexible to handle a variety of recycling material applications, including tires, non-ferrous metal, biomass, plastics and e-scrap recycling.

Product Features & Benefits
Meant for customers who need to process at higher volume, while making a smaller product, the new Saturn Grizzly S-80 features a new knife and rotor design that works exceptionally well on tires. Like its predecessor, the M-80, the S-80 can also be used in other applications, including aluminum, electronics scrap, and waste to energy. Additional design features include such trademark Saturn Grizzly series features as liner plates in the housing, two-piece screen design, easy-opening upper hopper, and multi-edge reusable knives and service platforms and handrails.
“We were the first Grizzly Super80 customer and worked with Granutech-Saturn through the product refinements, and they’ve exceeded our every expectation for this product,” said Troy Hess, Vice President of Mahantango Enterprises, a tire recycling operation in Central Pennsylvania. “We process 2-3 million tires per year and the Super80 has proven robust enough to handle the worst part of the tire and yet, has enough finesse to make the resulting output extremely clean and consistent,” he added.
The Saturn Grizzly S-80 also features larger shafts and bearings, a solid one-piece forged rotor, and a higher capacity gearbox. All this supports the Super 80 Grizzly’s ability to produce nearly four times more torque, than the standard model M-80, while doubling the machine’s production. A single-line tire processing system can now achieve ten-tons per hour capacity, an amount previously unattainable before the Super-80. Other features of the Saturn Grizzly Super-80 include:
- Screen sizes from 1/2” minus to 1-inch minus, or larger
- Housing lined with replaceable wear-plates
- 34” diameter rotor supported by double-row spherical roller bearings
- 300hp or 400hp drive motor
- 80” cutting chamber
- Rotary and stationary cutting knives using a proprietary staggered design
- TEFC electric motor and heavy duty gear reducer
- Drivetrain friction clutch for overload protection
- Seamless integration with Saturn shredders, granulators and powderizers
With initial customer installations in place for the last year, the Saturn Grizzly Super 80 is making its its public debuts on video in the Granutech booths at ISRI National Conference and ISRI Gulf Coast Expo in New Orleans, June 13-16.
