Blades

Check the fastening screws of blades regularly. after 1 hour of using the new granulator, tighten the screws of the rotary knife and fixed knife to retain the blade and the knife frame.
In order to ensure that the sharpness of the blade, should always inspect its sharpness. A blunt blade causes lots of powder and decreases performance and wastes power.
