AMN Knife Holders

AMN Knife Holders

Inventor of the self-aligning knife holder in 1995, AMN offers an efficient solution to the problems of loss of pellet cutting performance. ACE series combine self-alignment ability, robustness, and easy handling.

A MODULAR CONCEPT: ACE series are suitable for any type of pelletizer and consist in 3 parts for the ACE 1 version and for the ACE 2 (4 for the ACE 2 version):

  • The flexible hub installed on the pelletizer shaft
  • The removable knife ring fixed onto the hub
  • The removable protection shield attached to the knife ring
  • In the ACE 2 version, the knife holder is equipped with a grooved cone to canalize the water to each knife and is associated with a HOW 2 CIS AMN die plate.

The flexible hub provides the self-alignment ability (universal joint system) which compensates vibrations and small misalignments, ACE design requires no lubricant, springs or rubber bushing. There is no possibility of axial movement, so full forward pressure is directly applied to the knives.

Specifically designed to enhance the production of high MIs and peroxyded grades, better pellet cool-off before cutting translates to a cleaner cut with less tails, fines and agglomerates, easier start-ups by reducing the risk of plastic wraps, significant reduction of the cavitation phenomenon by balancing the water pressure on both sides of the knife holder, improves pellet ejection.
