Lancaster Products Roll Crushers reduce difficult-to-crush material in a single pass.

Lancaster Products Roll Crushers are designed for long life with a minimum of maintenance. These crushers reduce – in a single pass- material previously requiring primary and secondary crushing. The crushing rolls turn toward each other, confining all crushing to the area where the teeth mesh. Both rolls are timed to rotate at the same speed to maintain a true – and highly effective – crushing action.

CONSTRUCTION

Lancaster Products Roll Crusher

The Lancaster Products Roll Crusher is a compact unit built around a rigid cast frame. It is powered by a VFD gear drive unit. The high alloy steel shafts are driven by a heavy-duty chain operating in an enclosed oil bath. All parts coming in contact with the process material are replaceable and are made of wear-resistant alloys. Replaceable comb plates and cheek plates at the ends and sides of the housing prevent material from bypassing the rolls.

  • Crushing teeth are cast of a hard and tough alloy in replaceable segments.
  • The large oversized bearings are outboard, self-aligning and protected by mechanical seals.
  • Protection from shock loads is provided through the VFD.
  • Shaft outlets in the frame are equipped with mechanical seal assemblies.
  • Oversized, sealed, spherical roller bearings are supported by large castings rigidly mounted to the crusher frame castings and remotely located from the crushing area.

HOW IT WORKS

Lancaster Products Roll Crusher rolls rotate toward each other, confining all crushing to the area where the teeth mesh.

  • Both rolls are timed to rotate at the same speed to maintain a true crushing action.
  • All material entering the crusher pass through the mounted twin shaft rolls.
  • Since the relative positions of shafts are rigidly fixed, any trapped material will not separate the rolls. This prevents oversize material from passing through the crusher.
  • Crushed particle size can be varied from ¾ inch to 2 inches by changing the distance between the twin crushing rolls. Top and bottom openings have drilled mounting flanges. The crushing gap is adjustable by shimming the pillow blocks.

Case Study – High Shear Mixing of Clay Compositions

High Shear mixers are used in a wide variety of applications in many different industries. Finding the right blend and being able to produce the same mix consistently is the key to success at Highwater Clays, a clay and glaze supplier to the arts & crafts industry. The company has two locations with the main production center located in Ashville, North Carolina. Highwater Clays produces a wide range of clay bodies using fireclays, ball clays, kaolin, and stoneware clays. All the clay bodies consist of complex compositions and must be mixed into one reliable consistency.

Lancaster Products Announces Updates to Low Shear Mixers

We are excited to announce several recent improvements to the design of our low shear mixer product line. These mixers are often pushed beyond the limits of other mixers due to their widespread use in mixing dusty, abrasive, corrosive, highly viscous or explosive materials. The enhancements listed below were designed to improve the performance of our low shear mixers and to minimize maintenance and repair costs, which lowers the overall lifetime cost of ownership for our clients.

  1. Split drivetrain: pan and tooling on separate drives

The counter-rotating pan and tooling are now operating on separate drives allowing for individual control of tool and pan speeds. This simple split drive design provides increased flexibility to customize mixing recipes for different materials as compared to a single vertical shaft. Maintenance and trouble- shooting of issues relating to the pan or tooling also become easier.
