Paramount Cutter\Conveyor fans are heavy duty units which should not be confused with fans from other manufacturers.
designed to cut and convey a variety of materials, they have been
developed over the last 15 years to provide the end user with an
efficient and long-lasting solution. At the core of every Paramount fan
is the paddle-blade impeller. Whereas other manufacturers might use
mild steel for this component, Paramount has chosen NaxtraM70. This is
a wear-resistant speciality steel similar to that used in earth-mover
buckets, which has been chosen for its abrasion resistant qualities and
thus long life. The impeller is mounted on a large diameter shaft,
specifically designed to handle the harsh environment that the impeller
will encounter. This in turn sits in heavy duty "sealed for life"
bearings, minimising maintenance time.
Along the edge of each paddle is a
case-hardened steel knife. These are heat treated to combine toughness
and hardness and can be easily maintained. In the unlikely event that a
knife should need replacing, a full range of fan spares can be provided
from stock. Waste enters the fan via an adjustable inlet. By varying
the gap between the inlet and the impeller, the fans cutting
characteristics can be modified and the performance of the entire
conveying system maximised. The inlet cone can be fitted with
anti-roping knifes for continuous trim applications or be case hardened
for use in abrasive situations.
