The lump crusher is ideal for making a crushing operation of material having a tendency to form clumps. The rapid rotation of the blades causes the fragmentation of clods.

Our lump breakers are the perfect solution for grinding materials that tend to form lumps. The lump crusher allows to break the lumps that form during the production or transportation process of friable materials in powder or grain. The fast rotation of specially shaped blades through a fixed mesh gives an efficient lump breaking action. The presence of two rotors allows high throughputs if required.

Their objective is to ensure supply of fluid product.

Lumps must go through a deflector. The lump breaker includes two pin shafts. This model is recommended in the case of friable lumps, without moisture absorption.

The grinder consists of a square section body with  an upper and lower flange, 2 parallel horizontal shafts, a mesh for big sizes, 4 shaft bearings with adjustable shaft seal and an appropriate drive unit with transmission.
