Model LB 550 lump breaker reduces agglomerates as large as 10 in. into particles with an average size as small as 0.08 in. with minimal heat generation or fines at rates from 2.4 to 28 tons/hr. Its 21 x 16.4 in. inlet allows the direct discharge of compacted materials from 50 lb. sacks or bulk bags without the need for an intermediate controlled feed mechanism. The unit is offered as standard with a shaft supported at both ends for service in high-load applications, or with a cantilevered shaft for improved access and cleanability in lighter-duty applications. Side and end doors, which can be either bolted or hinged and interlocked, provide inspection and access to interior components.
