Through innovative design and unmatched quality workmanship the Ludman Industries Flake/Lump Breaker is a ruggedly designed machine capable of accepting many different types of materials and breaking them into a material size which is acceptable for further controlled particle size reduction or to create smaller sized material for another process.  The Flake/Lump Breaker typically breaks apart any number of materials which have been accumulated or agglomerated after a long storage period enabling these products to flow more easily.

The Flake/Lump Breaker consists of two counter-rotating, toothed rotors which reduce the sheet like material by impact.  Each rotor in the pair is provided with the required spacing to provide the product particle size range desired. One rotor in the pair is manually adjustable to increase or decrease the gap between them to accommodate changes in the thickness of the material being fed to the breaker.

The rotors are supported by heavy duty double row spherical cartridge bearings which are sealed from the machine’s interior by an additional seal to protect each bearing from dust contamination and thus provide long and trouble free bearing operation.

Typical material applications:

  • Coal          Corn               Cardboard          Drywall
  • Fertilizer     Frac Sand        Glass                 Oats
  • Plastics       Potash            Resins               Salt
  • SawDust    Spices              Sugat               Wheat Stach

Drive
Chain and sprockets are provided with the breaker for power input from a separately mounted motorized reducer.

Drive Guard
Guard and motor can be provided, due to various placement of the motor.

Bearings
Heavy duty, self-aligning roller bearings

Seals
Each rotor shaft has an additional seal mounted next to the machine housing to protect the bearings from dust contamination.

Housing
Heavy gage steel of bolted and welded construction.

Rotating Elements
The toothed rotors are supported on continuous through shafts for maximum resistance to the impact pressures exerted.

Adjustable Rotor Setting
Manual adjustment of one rotor is provided to vary the gap between the rotating elements.

Idler shaft
A stationary mounted, two bearing idler shaft is provided to accommodate a serpentine type chain wrap from the driving motor.

Machine finish
The machine is finished in a Ludman blue two coat epoxy paint system which provides a maximum protection from corrosion of most minerals and chemicals normally processed.  Optional grey or food grade coating is also available.
