The reversible impactor was first developed and patented by Pennsylvania Crusher in 1937. Reversible impactors are available in a variety of models.
Advantages and Benefits:
- Overcrushing and excessive production of fines are prevented because the bottom of the crusher is completely open, with no screen bars or other obstructions to impede material flow.
- Power requirements can be reduced by about 50% or more of that required by other types of crushers.
- When processing high moisture materials, this design reduces the chance of plugging.
- Low initial cost and low maintenance costs
