The ANCO 1045 Crusher is one of the largest pre-breakers in the industry, handling size capabilities of up to 80,000 lbs. per hour without precutting whole animals. The 1045 Crusher has the longest life expectancy of any Crusher in the rendering industry while remaining cost-efficient. Using the latest metallurgical technology, the cast alloy steel parts are stronger than any other on the market. Each hammer is individually machined, producing a scissoring effect when combined with the anvil. The sharp hammers can slice through large bones or soft material while providing a uniform particle size.
The 120 RPM shaft speed assures low impact stress to the unit. The Crusher comes equipped with:
- A 125HP low RPM motor with a 38 ½” opening.
- Outboard pillow block bearing designed to reduce shaft deflection, jamming, and wear on the hammer and anvil.
