Metal crushers

Metal crushers

For efficient processing of metal turnings and anodes

Metal crushers are designed to reduce metal scrap to smaller uniform grain size. They are often used in scrap yards, automobile industry, steel mills, aluminum plants or in any application where efficient crushing of metal is required. Metso's metal crushers offering consists of three families: Lindemann™ ZB and Lindemann™ ZM metal crushers as well as Lindemann™ Anode crushers.

Lindemann™ Anode crushers.
Lindemann™ Anode crushers

Lindemann™ Anode crushers are often used in aluminium plants and steel mills to process anode butts from aluminum electrolysis, or whole baked or green waste anodes for reuse in anode coal mills. 

In the crusher the anode butts or waste anodes are crushed between a fixed and an oil-hydraulically operated crusher platen. Both platens are equipped with special tools made of highly wear resistant material.

The bottom of the crushing zone is built as a grid so that the crushed material can fall out in a continuous stream.

Capacities: up to 35 t/h (39 US tons/h) or 36 anodes per hour

Maximum size of whole anodes to process: 1600 x 1000 x 800 mm (63 x 39.4 x 31.5 in)
