pneuCONVEYOR – Lump breakers, also referred to as lump crushers, are required particle size reduction equipment for most material handling systems. They operate by introducing agglomerated product through an opening in the top of the unit. The lump breaking happens when the products particles that are too large are crushed by the rotating blades as they pass through a set of stationary comb-like blades. The agglomerated product particles continue to be reduced in size until they are small enough to pass through and discharge below the unit. A common application for our lump breakers is to reduce deliberately compacted materials or natural agglomerations which often occur during production, storage or shipping.
The Lumps Breakers are designed for breaking lumps which are formed in granules and dry powders. Lumps Breakers are installed in chutes ducts and conveying systems and can be fitted with a hopper for batch operation. Lumps Breakers reduced the material deliberately compact in size for densification process or recycling or waste disposal application. Lump breaking process reconstitute the product which increases the flow ability, consistency and downstream of the material.
pneuCONVEYOR Lump Breakers are functional, economical and designed to tear through most materials and reduce them down in size as small as 1/16” without generating excessive dust. Our Lump Breaker design is proven to provide a simple and efficient process of reducing compacted materials into a smaller and controlled granulated product allowing for more efficient and effective product handling by downstream equipment. pneuCONVEYOR Lump Breakers reduce downtime, increase performance, and improve product quality over other available lump breakers and crushers.
It is no surprise, with industry leading reliability and features such as counter-rotating dual shafts, outboard bearings and a direct coupled drive, that companies around the world are taking advantage of the many benefits associated with using our innovative lump breakers in their line of processing equipment.
This uniquely designed lump breaker (cake breaker/flake breaker) improves product flow for a variety of applications while reducing product agglomeration for an all-around easy means of reducing compacted materials.
Easy installation and maintenance, as well as an optional sanitary design, make this a simplistic product for businesses of all sizes and types. At pneuCONVEYOR, we construct only the most versatile equipment and our lump breakers are no exception. It can process an extensive array of materials, including chemicals, minerals, salt, sugar, ceramic powders and more.
Design features include easily replaceable rotating and fixed blades, a heavy-duty single-shaft rotor driven by a V-belt, and strategically drilled air purge seals.
pneuCONVEYOR’s Lump Breaker is designed to provide a simple, more economical means of reducing compacted materials into smaller, granulated product required for most processing or packaging lines. The Lump Breaker improves product flow for a variety of applications including: sugar, salt, chemicals, cereal, kiln dust, resin, pigment, filter cake, pasta, fertilizer and more.
This equipment can be used to reduce natural agglomeration, which can occur during storage / shipping, or reduce material deliberately compacted in densification processing or in recycling or waste disposal applications.
