Flake Crusher

Technology Application
Size Reduction

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.

Typical Applications

  • Crushing of soft or agglomerated products.
  • Crushing of flakes to granulate
  • Disagglomeration after drying and mixing
  • Delumping to improve material flowability
  • Recycling of tablets
