Rotary Lump Breaker Has Side Removal Screens
UTICA, NY - new Rotary Lump Breaker from Munson Machinery features side removal bed screens for rapid, thorough cleaning and screen changes. The low profile unit, Model RDC1515-SS, reduces agglomerates and friable materials being discharged from process equipment, storage vessels and shipping containers.
Material entering the 15 in. (381 mm) square inlet is reduced in size by dual rotors with three-point, single-piece breaking heads rotating with minimum clearance inside a curved, perforated bedscreen.
On-size material exits through apertures in twin bedscreens ranging from 1/32 to 2-1/2 in. (25 to 64 mm) in diameter.
Whereas conventional units must generally be unbolted from upstream and downstream equipment to access bottom-mounted bedscreens, the new unit with side-removal bedscreens can remain in place, allowing cleaning and screen changing in a fraction of the time.
Powered by a 3 HP (2.24 kw) motor with gear reducer and serpentine timing drive, the synchronized shafts rotate at approximately 100 RPM to avoid heating the product.
At 11 in. (279 mm) high, the unit is designed to fit in restricted spaces between bulk storage, handling, processing and packaging equipment. With optional feed hoppers and support structures, it can also operate independently.
The unit is recommended for deagglomeration of free- or non-free-flowing bulk chemical, food and pharmaceutical products, and size reduction of friable products and compacted powders.
According to the manufacturer, it is built to withstand heavy usage and is simple to maintain; bearings can be lubricated through external fittings and are isolated from the product processing area with multiple labyrinth air purge seals.
It is constructed of carbon steel, #304 stainless steel (shown), #316 stainless steel, and abrasion-resistant steel (AR-235).
Also offered are higher capacity models with up to four rotors, up to 40 HP (30 kw) and inlets to 48 in. (1219 mm) square.
Other size reduction machinery offered by the company includes Screen Classifying Cutters, Pin Mills (Centrifugal Impact Mills), Attrition Mills, Rotary Knife Cutters, Hammer Mills and Shredders. Blending equipment includes Rotary Batch Mixers, Ribbon, Paddle and Plow Blenders, Forberg Mixers, Rotary Continuous Mixers and High Intensity Blenders.
