Munson Machinery has introduced a new De-ClumperTM Lump Breaker model RDC-1530-SS with support base and infeed hopper, designed for stand-alone operation.
Unlike units permanently installed between upstream and downstream equipment, the self-standing configuration can be fed from a variety of upstream sources, including handheld containers, and can straddle downstream equipment, drums, boxes, or mobile bins for processing, storage, or packaging.
The unit de-lumps bulk materials that have agglomerated or solidified during storage or shipment, returning products to their original particle sizes and flowability. Material entering the 380 mm x 760 mm infeed throat via the hopper is reduced in size by dual rotors with three-point, single-piece, stainless steel breaking heads rotating with minimum clearance inside a curved, perforated bedscreen. On-size material exits through apertures in twin bedscreens ranging from 25 to 64 mm dia.
Powered by a 3.7 kW motor with a self-lubricating chain and sprocket drive, the synchronised shafts rotate at approximately 120 RPM to avoid heating the product. The bedscreen can be removed rapidly for cleaning or replacement. According to the manufacturer, the rugged design withstands heavy use and is easy to maintain. Bearings can be lubricated through external fittings and are isolated from the product processing area with UHMW air purge block seals.
Constructed of #304 or #316 stainless steel, the unit is available with castors for in-plant mobility, and can be finished to food, pharmaceutical, or industrial standards. Abrasion-resistant steel allows it to withstand demanding industrial applications. High capacity models are also available, with up to four rotors, up to 30 kW, and inlets to 1220 mm2.
