Lump breaker

Breaker for reliable processing of your products

Pressure, temperature and humidity cause bulk materials to clump together and partially cake into a monoblock. The lump breaker ensures that the agglomerates are safely broken up: from slight clumping to completely hard-packed units. This ensures your product flow during handling and supply to the production line.

Advantages for your bulk material handling

Robust construction

Many years of experience with a wide variety of products are the basis for this technique.

Standardised and customised versions

1, 2 or multi-shaft versions for the best possible adaptation to your application.

Dust-free breaker

Closed operation for a safe and environmentally friendly overall concept.

Coarse reduction of the products

Guarantee of trouble-free operation of the system.

Breaker for breaking up agglomerates

Our solution in action

Extendible single-shaft lump breaker
Day silo with multi-shaft breaker
Roller crusher for ammonium chloride


Zinc carbonate agglomerates were to be broken up during the ongoing process for a customer in the chemical industry. In addition, the breaker had to be easy to clean, as the product is highly adhesive.

Die Lösung

  • The lump breaker is completely made of stainless steel 1.4301 (AISI 304) with a polished finish.
  • The single-shaft lump breaker is available as a double and equipped with a pull-out device.

Within the scope of an EMDE bulk batch project, various precursors and chemicals for building materials had to be dosed and processed. One of the aggregates had a strong tendency to block in the day silo.

The solution

  • In order to break up and discharge the agglomerates, the silo has several breaker shafts which additionally ensure the feed to the discharge screw.
  • The day silo contains a discharge screw for discharging the product.


For the project, big bags heavily blocked with ammonium chloride had to be emptied.

The solution

  • Before breaking up, the big bags are manually cut open on 3 sides.
  • The product then falls as a monoblock into a 4-roller crusher.
