Product Description

With the Alpine Compaction Flake Crusher brittle, easily broken materials are gently crushed down to a fine particle size. This gentle milling action minimises fines which means the Flake Crusher is often used in hazardous dust areas.

The Flake Crusher rotor mills the material through a screen using a rasp or hole screen. Throughout, particle size range and crushing intensity are governed by rotor speed, while upper particle size limit is dictated by the screen size.

  • The unit benefits from easy access for cleaning.

Typical Applications

  • Crushing of soft or agglomerated products.
