Oversize lumps/chunks of agglomerated solids in industrial process streams often lead to system blockages that can interrupt processing, put excess stress on equipment, and lead to unscheduled downtime.
This downtime can be mitigated by breaking down oversized materials and eliminating the obstructions with crushing equipment, such as the ACC Flow-Sizer Crusher. This machine uses a rotating drum with blades to impact and break down any oversize chunks or lumps to a free-flowing size – keeping the process running smoothly and efficiently.
What is the Flow-Sizer Crusher?
The Flow-Sizer is an economical, heavy-duty Crushing machine designed to break down dry, bulk materials to a fine, consistent, and free-flowing particle size.
The Flow-Sizer are single shaft, and use a large diameter rotating drum with securely-welded short blades. These blades pass through the slots of a series of stationary Breaker Bars mounted to the inside walls of the machine at close clearance. The Breaker Bars prevent oversize materials from passing through the unit until the blades pass through, acting as a series of crushing, cutting hammers. Oversize lumps / chunks are impacted and broken down until they are small enough to pass through the slots and are a consistent, free-flowing size.
Flow-Sizers are very compact and have a short face-to-face dimension, allowing for easy integration with conveyor systems, chutes, ducts, above or below rotary airlock feeders or screw feeds, and within pneumatic feed or silo discharge systems.
The Flow-Sizer is offered with Course, Standard, or Fine Blade/Breaker Bar configurations.
Sanitary designs, with polished components and with Side or End Access Plates allowing for easy internal cleaning are also available.
Common sizes for the Inlet/Outlet dimensions of the Flow Sizer range from 6” x 6”, up to 12”x30” or larger when needed.
Additional Benefits of a Flow-Sizer Crusher
Incorporating a Flow-Sizer Crusher into your processing operations can result in a number of additional benefits, including:
- Crushing oversized materials in the process stream, you can improve efficiency by increasing the surface area of the crushed materials, which allows for faster melting or other chemical reactions.
- Having a consistent and predictable particle size allows for more efficient and more accurate weight or volume metering. Accurate metering will enhances the speed of your downstream production processes.
- Having a small consistent feed size can reduce the wear and tear on downstream equipment such as conveyors, mixers, blenders, etc.
