UTICA, N.Y.—Munson Machinery Inc. launched its De-Clumper Lump Breaker model RDC-1530-SS, which includes a support base and in-feed hopper for stand-alone operation.
The RDC-1530-SS unit de-lumps bulk materials that have solidified in storage or shipment, and can be fed from upstream sources such as handheld containers, according to a Munson release.
With its self-standing setup, it can straddle downstream equipment such as drums, boxes and mobile bins for other uses, Munson said. It features a 15 by 30 inch in-feed throat via the hopper, with material being reduced in size by dual rotors with three-point, single-piece stainless steel breaking heads. They rotate with minimum clearance inside a curved, perforated bedscreen, with exits through apertures in twin bedscreens between 0.03125 and 2.5 inches in diameter.
Munson said the unit features a 5 horsepower motor with a self-lubricating chain and sprocket drive, and the synchronized shafts rotate at about 120 RPM. The bedscreen can be removed for cleaning or replacement, and bearings can be lubricated through external fittings and are isolated from the product processing area with ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene air purge block seals.
The RDC-1530-SS is available with caster for in-plant mobility and is constructed of #304 or #316 stainless steel, Munson said. It can be finished to food, pharmaceutical or industrial standards, and also is offered in abrasion-resistant stainless steel.
