Vertical metal crusher for chips, swarf and turnings

Crushes long swarf and turnings into short chips to save transportation costs and to allow further processing.

Nederman KB 10-49 vertical metal chip crushers crush and break bushy swarf in the swarf hopper. The crushers can accept large quantities and then reduce the swarf to an even flow of chips. This makes the crushers ideal for installation in a swarf handling system. The crusher is used in industries where the amount of swarf is an issue and before long swarf should be extracted, centrifuged or briquetted. An integrated bar end rejecter ensures high functionality and efficiency of the system.

The crusher is intended for carbon steel, stainless steel and other alloyed steel with tensile strength up to 1.200 N/mm2 (174,000 psi), aluminium alloys, sponge iron and titanium.

  • Very low operating costs
  • Versatile loading
  • Low noise level

Technical description of vertical chip crusher

The Nederman vertical metal chip crusher type KB accepts, crushes and breaks up bushy swarf, turnings and metal chips and at a low rotating speed the bushy swarf is cut down to small chips at a continuous rate. The metal crusher can accept large quantities and then reduce the swarf to an even flow of chips. This makes the makes crusher ideal for installation in a chip processing system. 

The crusher is used in industries where the amount of swarf is an issue and before long swarf should be centrifuged or briquetted. The crusher is intended for the following types of turnings: 

  • carbon steel 
  • stainless steel 
  • other alloyed steel with tensile strength up to 1.200 N/mm2 (174,000 psi)
  • aluminium alloys 
  • sponge iron 
  • titanium
Very low operating costs 

The main principle of the Nederman crushers is to allow the swarf to be ground against each other - without hammering or cutting. 
This principle means very small demand for energy and very little wear, e.g. KB49 gives 8 tons/hr at 45 kW (60 hp).

Versatile loading

The crushers accept most types of material irrespective of shape. They can be charged intermittently by a grab, hoist, fork lift or 
continuously by a conveyor.

High reliability

Unlike the hammer style crushers or shredders the Nederman crushers are not sensitive to large bundles of swarf or swarf balls. Even large swarf balls are handled with the small power of 5.5kW (7.3 hp). 

Low noise level

The crusher operates normally at 82dB(A). This means that they are quiet and easy to install as they do not need to be enclosed or 
placed in special rooms.
