What is an industrial lump breaker?
A lump breaker is useful in breaking down aggregates and lumps in bulk powders and solids. The crushers break fairly crumbly lumps of granules and powders in bulk bags. Lump breakers and crushers are available in low-speed and high-speed versions. Low-speed versions are useful for the gentle crushing of brittle products. You can use them to break down particles without generating excess dust. Due to the low-speed crushing, the lump crusher can break down heat-sensitive granules. Low-speed crushers don't have the violent shattering and disintegration accompanying high-speed impacts. The blades and shafts impose a three-stage crushing action that involves wedging and crushing lumps against the casing. After the wedging, the residual lumps are forced through a grill through the sliding action of blade edges. High-speed breakers combine impact, wedging and trapping at a rapid rate for faster breaking of granular materials.
What are the applications of lump breakers and crushers?
Industrial lump breakers have numerous applications in the bulk solids and powder industries to improve the flow characteristics of dry materials. The common application of lump breakers is deagglomeration after prolonged storage. Since the containers used to store products are exposed to high humidity and moisture, they can form hard lumps that require energy to separate. Most manufacturers install lump breakers underneath the bulk bag unloaders to condition the materials and break them into smaller particles for transport. When preparing materials for conveying lines, the agglomerates and large lumps need to be broken down for easy flow in the conveyors. Lump crushers are also used for pre-breaking lumps before feeding them to the value-adding equipment processors.
