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.

Infographic: Optimize Your Fertilizer Pelletizing Process

Many fertilizer processing facilities were originally setup with 5 or more large pieces of processing equipment systematically connected with conveyors for a minimum of 9 pieces of equipment to convert raw materials into fertilizer. The amount of work, energy, and maintenance that goes into maintaining a complex system like this is very costly.

Lancaster Products can optimize existing fertilizer pelletizing plants or establish new fertilizer processing facilities. Our counter-current, high shear mixers have several product and operating advantages over the complex, traditional systems.

Lancaster Products Multi Tool Mixing Advantage

Since the introduction of the original K-series mixer in 1986, Lancaster Products High Shear Mixers have been designed to produce the best mixing and pelletizing results for our customers. Lancaster Mixers superior performance is due to our multi-tool configuration, counter current mixing action and variable tooling speed capability.

Multi Tool Configuration
Lancaster Mixers can be configured with three independent variable speed mixing tools: the mixing rotor, the plow and the rotating pan. These three tools work in concert to provide the best mixing results. The primary mixing tool is the high-speed rotor. The plow and rotating pan both work to move material into the main rotor’s path. The three mixing tools are so efficient at mixing, there are no dead spots inside of the mixing cavity and every piece of material passes through the mixing rotor every few seconds. Additionally, a sidewall scraper is positioned against the pan sides to prevent caking and buildup of material on the pan itself.
