Project Description

AB 450N – Bale Braker

This bale breaker for virgin and recycled fibre is ideally suited for feeding the CD2S4, CD2S2 and CD180S3 fibre fine-openers.

A horizontal belt conveyor on which a whole bale can be loaded, slowly pushes the bale against a studded belt which in turn conveys the fibre towards the machine outfeed.

A rotating scraper removes excess fibre while a doffer makes sure that all the fibre is efficiently separated from the studded belt and conveyed towards the outfeed hopper.

The speed of both belt conveyors can be adjusted in order to process the correct quantity of fibre.

The machine can be controlled and switched on/off by other equipment downstream (i.e. a blender or a silo).

The electrical system is equipped with a disconnector switch, motor protections, inverter, limiter cord and low voltage controls.

The machine is built according to the requirements of the European Directives 2006/42/CE, 2004/108/CE, 2006/95/CE and subsequent amendments. The machine duly bears the CE marking.
