Durable Roller Crusher Now fully controllable using PLC technology for remote monitoring

Glen Creston - ‘Leaders in Size Reduction’ have improved the design and function of their Roller Crusher.

Roller crusher with controllerIt can be supplied with a new control box with PLC which allows remote monitoring and control of the crusher in process applications.

The largest single shaft unit is now 800mm long by 500mm wide internally and designed for crushing lump coal up to 250mm. High temperature versions are available for crushing power station ash at up to 250 degrees centigrade.

This rugged, slow-running mill is equipped with either a single or double roller shafts fitted with crushing cams which rotate between crushing and stripping combs. Different shaped crushing elements are available depending on material.

This machine is particularly suitable for de-agglomeration of materials from sacks or silos, pre-crushing softer minerals and for granulating coarse lumpy, caked or compacted materials.

Features include:

  • Robust construction
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Compact design allows retro-fitting into existing process lines.
  • Parts easily removed for maintenance/repair

Suitable for:

  • Pigments and Resin
  • Food and Pharmaceutical
  • Coal
  • Waste materials and Ash
  • Minerals


The wear resistant steel crushing cams are mounted on the roller shaft in staggered positions, accurately spaced so that they pass between the crushing and stripping combs which are mounted laterally on opposite sides of the inner housing. 

The roller Crusher Mill is only one machine from our range of laboratory and pilot scale/light industrial equipment.

From our Jaw crusher, for primary sample breakage prior to further processing, to the McCrone Mill, which will grind to analytical fineness, these machines can cope with a wide range of materials from rocks to edible grains

For preparation of larger laboratory samples or for light industrial applications, Glen Creston offers a range of machines that can cope with higher throughputs whilst still producing reasonable particle sizes.

Glen Creston also manufactures special machines for sample processing production needs. These machines are designed for processing anything from small samples to larger scale continuous flows for industrial applications.
