Gently crush down brittle, easily broken materials to fine particle size.
Gentle milling action for minimum fines generation
The Flake crusher from Hosokawa Alpine offers a gentle milling action that minimizes fines; which means that the Flake Crusher is often used in hazardous dust areas. Typically the circumferential speed is around 1 m/s.
The material to be crushed is strained through a screen with a horizontal rotor. The crushing movement of the rotor can take place both in an oscillating and rotating manner.
The most common applications of this device are crushing of lumped salts and hygroscopic substances, deagglomeration after drying and mixing, crushing of flakes to granulate, recycling of tablets, and dust-free crushing.
