UTICA, N.Y.—Munson Machinery Co. Inc.'s new model RDC-2424-MS De-Clumper Rotary Lump Breaker breaks chunks of agglomerated abrasive or friable materials that have compacted during storage or shipment, conditioning them for downstream processing or conveying.
The firm said material entering the 24-inch, square inlet is reduced in size by dual rotors with three-point, single-piece, AR-235 abrasion-resistant steel breaking heads rotating with minimum clearance above a curved, perforated bedscreen.
The compact, low-profile design allows inline placement in restricted spaces between upstream and downstream processing, packaging or bulk storage equipment. The firm said the unit's optional feed hopper and support structure, it can also operate as a stand-alone unit.
Munson said it recommends the new model for breaking lumps in product flows of bulk materials such as cement powders, sodium or calcium carbonates, fertilizers, and bulk chemicals of all types. It is built to withstand heavy usage and is simple to maintain. Bearings can be lubricated through external fittings and are isolated from the product processing area with air purged shaft seals.
