Several alternatives are available when industrial processes require size reduction, crushing, and de-agglomeration. Capacities vary by equipment but the family of products covers capacities from 2000 to 35,000 lb/hr. For very soft to medium hard products, power graters provide versatile, clean, quiet, and low-maintenance performance for any of the reduction and crushing process needs. Rotary knife-cutters provide fast uniform cutting of most materials ranging from soft industrial and agricultural products (plastics, wood chips, nuts) to materials as hard as lead chips and solid surface resins such as Corian. Lump breakers are designed to reduce softer and abrasive products such as filter cakes, food stuffs, chemicals, fertilizers, and fly ash into sizes that can be further processed. All equipment is available in mild steel or stainless steel, with a variety of power transmission options to suit most industrial applications.
