Crushing the oversize lumps in the process stream improves efficiency by preventing blockages, by allowing more accurate metering, and by increasing the available surface area of the crushed material, which improves the speed of downstream production processes.
Typical Flow-Smasher designs use one or two rotating Shafts with Blades and a sizing grid with individually replaceable cross-bars. Particles smaller than the grid slots pass easily through the machine while any oversize materials are trapped within the impact area. The rotating Blades, acting like a series of crushing hammers, impact and shatter the trapped chunks and produce an output that is consistent and free-flowing.
Flow-Smashers with two shafts have counter-rotating blades. The counter-rotation draws the oversize material between the shafts, where it is impacted by both sets of blades. This enables the Flow-Smasher to break up larger, denser materials and, since the blade design is self-cleaning, it is often used for problem materials that are sticky or tend to bridge.
The bodies of the Flow-Smasher designs are typically bolted together for easy disassembly and maintenance. The design also incorporates our isolated bearing design, which prevents a seal failure from affecting the bearings. The Flow-Smasher is also available in ACC's new patented "-04" design. The "-04" design allows for remarkable flexibility in the design of new blade arrangements, special inlet and outlet configurations, and extremely short face-to-face dimensions.
