Delivering material consistency to increase your operational efficiencies.
Robust design lasting performance and peace of mind engineered solution to compacted materials. Ideal for Sugar or granular, dry brittle materials
Lump breakers make processing easier, by eliminating blockages and improving product flow.
The Compact design allows integration in to a chute or conveyor discharge. Constructed from Stainless Steel, including paired counter rotating shafts options of arms or blades accurately indexed along their lengths, giving minimum clearance between the mesh to the desired maximum granular lump size.
Several feeds can be directed to the Lump Breaker such as: lump reject systems, conveyor discharge, silo discharge, screening systems and Vibration Systems.
Making processing far easier by ensuring a maximum granular lump size, coupled with minimal maintenance and reliable performance the Lump Breaker solves many problems of today’s modern Sugar Refining Processes.
Product is gravity fed into the top of the Lump Breaker the nature lumps are brittle and normally break on first impact from the fall. The surviving lumps are guided to the rotating shafts by guide bars.
The rotating action of the arms breaks the lumps to manageable pieces for further processing. The bottom of the lump breaker is open and attached to a chute to allow the broken material to pass seamlessly through on to the next process.
A rotation sensor is fitted at the non-drive shaft of the Lump Breaker to bring the drive to a stop in the event of rotation not being detected due to, for example, a overfeed or blockage.
Standard sized units 900mm x 595mm stainless steel plus fully ATEX rated.
Flange fitting for ease of installation with minimal chute adaptation.
ATEX Classification zones exist for explosive hazards like dust and fibres: -
• Zone 20 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur frequently or for extended periods.
• Zone 21 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur sometimes, but not extensively.
• Zone 22 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur infrequently or for short durations.
