FCB VIF™ crusher

The FCB VIF™ crusher is an impact crusher equipped with hammers and a non-clogging Mobile Anvil Device (MAD). The high speed rotor supports 6 rows of light or heavy hammers and is also fitted with grate bars.
The travelling breaker plate (MAD) is driven by a low speed gear motor on motor-reducer.
A 5 to 15% moisture in raw material deals with sticky and clogging characteristics. The MAD allows the material to be inevitably drawn down into the machine and pushed into the trajectory of the hammers.
The FCB VIF™ crusher is designed for primary and secondary applications. In primary application, the FCB VIF™ crusher is fitted with an inertia flywheel and can accept blocks over than one cubic meter in size to obtain a -40 mm with 70% below 25 mm. In secondary application, the feed size is -300 mm to produce a typical -20 mm product in open circuit.
