The PRAB vertical axis crusher is one of the most effective pieces of scrap metal equipment for quickly and safely creating flowable, thumbnail-sized chips from processing wads of turnings

Turnings are fed into the crusher’s feed hopper either by self-dumping hoppers, a plant-wide conveyor system, or an automated dump system with standard barrels or chip carts. The crusher’s feed hopper housing -with fixed cast cutters and rotating cutter- then directs the material down into the fixed and rotating cutter rings, where the material is reduced to flowable thumbnail sized chips.

The exclusive, PRAB-designed solids ejector automatically discharges bar-ends. This critical component protects the scrap metal equipment from damage, virtually eliminates downtime from lodged parts, and maximizes labor allocations.

These crushers can be used as stand-alone units or as part of a larger chip processing or scrap removal system. Other volume reduction scrap metal equipment designed and manufactured by PRAB includes the Horizontal Axis Crusher and Shredder.

Advantages of the PRAB Vertical Axis Crusher include:

  • Maximized storage space
  • Reduced transportation costs
  • Reduced scrap volume up to a 6:1 ratio
  • Prevents equipment damage by removing occasional solids
  • Increases efficiency in reclaiming cutting fluids
  • Reduces housekeeping maintenance
  • Maximizes labor allocations
  • Improves efficiency of downstream equipment such as wringer or briquetting equipment
