New York-based Munson Machinery has introduced an SCC Screen Classifying Cutter Model SCC-15 designed to reduce fibrous cannabis stalks and bulbs into compost-ready particle sizes at high rates for efficient post-harvest processing.
With an infeed throat of 15 x 11 in. (381 x 279 mm), this heavy-duty cutter features an 11 in. (279 mm) diameter rotor with dozens of cutter heads attached to a helical array of staggered holders called "interconnected parallelograms" that continuously shear oversize cannabis materials against twin, stationary bed knives.
Unlike conventional knife cutters that slice material in scissor-like fashion, the SCC Cutter is configured with carbide tipped cutter heads along the entire shaft, with no gaps between tips, making total contact with the product.
Operating at set speeds from 30 to 3600 RPM, the unit can process at high rates with minimal fines and little or no heat generation.
Bed screen perforations range from 1.5 in. (38 mm) to 0.0312 in. (0.79 mm) in diameter, allowing the reduction of material into uniform particles in sizes down to 1/8 in. (10 mesh).
