Original Press Release:

Larger Models of Moyno® Annihilator(TM) C3A Channel Grinder Now Available

Springfield, Ohio – The Moyno® Annihilator™ C3A channel grinder is now available in larger models. The new 40” and 60” models have the same design and features as the smaller models plus an added intermediate bearing for greater service life.

The redesigned C3A version of the Annihilator produces on average 30% more flow through than the original Series 3 Annihilator. Optimized high flow side rails are one of the main contributing factors for the increase in flow along with a lower profile bottom housing.

The Annihilator C3A grinder allows for greater flexibility and management of channel and flow conditions for a variety of user requirements. The C3A allows the user to achieve the same or better flow with a reduction in grinder size. A reduction in grinder size equates to a reduced upfront capital investment cost as well as a reduction in total cost of ownership due to power savings.

Users that require a specific stack height or are looking to retrofit an existing grinder can utilize the C3A. It delivers greater flow through the process compared to the original C3 design and can be retrofitted to current C3 grinders as well as competitor units while continuing to use existing motor and drive adapters.

The redesigned C3A can also be used by operators looking to reduce flow bottlenecks in their process without having to expand their channel or plant.  The C3A can achieve increased flow and productivity without the costly expense of channel or plant expansion.

The redesign provides the following additional features that result in simplified maintenance:

• One Piece Casting Top Plate with Adaptor Cover

• Top Stack Tightening

• Shrouded Seal Design

• Hardened Couplings
