Quick Clean Lump Breaker

Prater Lump Breaker On Rails

Prater engineers have designed and manufactured a Quick Clean Lump Breaker that is easier and safer to maintain than traditional lump breakers. The Quick Clean Lump Breaker is inspired by the design of our Quick-Take-Apart series of Rotary Airlock Valves and shares similar design elements such as a direct drive and tool-less access end-plates. The end-plates are also mounted to a sliding rail system and provide the easiest and safest access to the internals of the unit.Prater Quick Clean Lump Breaker Open

Traditionally, to maintain a lump breaker, a user had to remove the heavy end-plates with tools, pull the end-plate off, remove the unwieldy rotor, complete the cleaning, and then reassemble. Now the cleaning is done by simply removing fasteners on the end plate and sliding the rotor out. No other manufacturer offers a product such as this.

The Quick Clean Lump Breaker reduces down-time, increases safety all while providing improved product flow for a variety of applications including: sugar, salt, chemicals, cereal, kiln dust, resin, pigment, filter cake, pasta, fertilizer and more. This equipment can be used to reduce natural agglomeration, which can occur during storage/shipping, or reduce material deliberately compacted in densification processing or in recycling or waste disposal applications without creating dust.
