Lump breaker for bulk materials that have solidified

Louise Smyth

Munson Machinery has introduced a new De-Clumper Lump Breaker model RDC-1530-SS with support base and in-feed 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 by 760 mm in-feed 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 in diameter.

Powered by a 3.7 kW motor with 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.

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. It is also offered in abrasion-resistant stainless steel to withstand demanding industrial applications.
