Sanitary Lump Breaker with Side-Removal Screens

March 8, 2011
Munson Machinery CompanyThe model RDC1515-SS sanitary lump breaker features side-removal bed screens for rapid, thorough wash down. Materials entering the 15-in. square inlet are reduced in size by dual rotors with three-point, single-piece, stainless steel breaking heads rotating with minimum clearance inside a curved, perforated bed screen. On-size material exits through apertures in twin bed screens ranging from 1/32 to 2 1/2 in. in diameter. The low-profile unit is designed to fit in restricted spaces between bulk storage, processing, and packaging equipment. Whereas conventional units must generally be unbolted from upstream and downstream equipment to access bottom-mounted bed screens, the new unit with side-removal bed screens can remain in place, allowing thorough sanitizing in a fraction of the time. Constructed of stainless steel finished to sanitary standards, the unit is suitable for food, dairy, and pharmaceutical applications, as well as industrial applications where cross-contamination is a concern.
