The main function of the Claudius Peters Lump Breaker is crushing of lumps which have formed, for instance, due to hydration in silos or bins. A horizontal or vertical type lump breaker is available and is used in the discharge area in front of the discharge equipment, for example flow control gates. A rotor with crushing arms in a radial arrangement and displaced on the shaft, draws the lumps against a grate where it crushes the lumps.
The operational safety of the Claudius Peters lump crusher is ensured by an overload cut-out with reversing duty. This is realized by an integrated control board.
