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
