Ingredient size reduction solution

30 January 2017

Ajax lump breakers can achieve size reduction with a wide range of materials. This might be required to prevent damage to equipment and improve the production process. Breaking down ingredients can also stop mixer paddles from becoming damaged during mixing and ensures blockages of hoppers and feed chutes are avoided. 

Size reduction can also benefit the production process by improving and making reaction rates more predictable, enhancing flowability and ensuring consistent bulk density. 

Ajax has recently supplied two lump breakers for processing sugar. Capable of handling 25,000 kg/hr of granular sugar, the 316L stainless steel, twin shaft lump breakers are designed to meet ATEX Zone 20 requirements.

These units will be mounted on chute work. FDA compliant seals are used for all joints coming into contact with the sugar. In addition to the equipment’s self-cleaning action, the lump breakers also feature a removable grill, allowing the equipment to be cleaned and thoroughly inspected.
