A Flow-Sentry is a crushing machine designed to work in liquid or powder pipeline systems and is a fully enclosed crushing device designed to reduce oversize lumps as they travel through a pipe or tube. The Flow-Sentry employs a single set of rotating blades to impact and shatter at close clearance any materials too large to pass between the stationary bars of a sizing grid. Products that pass through the Flow-Sentry are consistent, free-flowing and are often substantially smaller than the slot width of the sizing grid.
Crushing the oversize lumps in the process stream improves efficiency by preventing blockages and pump cavitation, by allowing more accurate metering, and by increasing the available surface area of the crushed material, which improves the speed of downstream production processes . The Flow-Sentry makes use of ACC’s patented “-04” design (US Patent # 6,024,310) for remarkable flexibility in design, and also incorporates our isolated bearing design, which separates the bearings from the seals.
