The block crusher opens the cell structure of foams


A short or long block is uniformly compressed by roller rows placed on top of each other

  • High production capacity due to a crushing speed 15 m/min and a drive-through speed of 40 m/min
  • The upper roller row can be infinitely moved when being inclined so that the pressing power can be continuously increased and adapted to different foam qualities
  • The crushing of the foam improves its quality
  • By means of the operator panel, an all-automatic crushing cycle of several steps can be programmed
  • Utilisation as a stand-alone version as well as in an automatic line

  • Feed rate 15 m/min during the crushing process
  • In order to continuously increase the pressure power, the upper conveyor can be infinitely moved when being inclined.
  • Lower stationary conveyor (seperate drive)
  • Pass-through speed without crushing: 40 m/min
  • Solidly welded steel construction
  • B-Con


  • Cooling unit
  • Loading and unloading conveyors

Foundation Plan

  • with belt
  • without reverse mode

Transport conveyor upstream or downstream of the crusher, respectively

  • Ensures an ideal through-put of the material
  • Equipment with separate short transport conveyors, particularly recommended for the stand-alone Version. Especially for short block applications
  • With long block applications, the length of the transport conveyors depends on the maximum block length (e. g. 30, 50 or 60 m)
  • The upper and lower roller rows can be infinitely moved so that the pressing power can be continuously increased and adapted to different foam qualities. This means that the cells are homogeneously crashed
