A rotary crusher is an important part of any tumbling drum set up, as the rotary crusher is able to exert a considerable amount of force, making a rotary crusher ideal for both food processing as well as recycling. A rotary crusher is also able to be calibrated based on the size of it is being utilized for. The speed of a rotary crusher can vary from machine to machine, but the typical speed of a rotary crusher is around anywhere between eighty five rpm and one thousand and two hundred rpm. This speed will depend, overall, on how modern the model is. Modern models are also more useful, as they will typically come with a variety of hammers to utilize on various different materials.

A tumbling drum and rotary crusher can be useful for a number of purposes across a number of industries. Aside from the purposes of food processing and recycling, a tumbling drum can be used to adequately and excellently polish plastic parts when given up to fifteen hours to work. However, it is important that careful handling be used before, during and after this process. Tumbling drums and rotary crushers are ideal for factory settings and large scale production, as they can work with speed and efficiency to get the job done.

There are a number of important considerations to keep in mind when using a tumbling drum for any purpose. First, it is important to realize that a tumbling drum will take time, sometimes as long as twenty four hours, though this depends on the material that will be removed from the parts and the overall amount of it. The process of tumbling should never be rushed in order to always get the optimal results after the process is over. Though the barrel speeds for tumbling will vary depending on the function of the machine, what it is being used for, and other considerations, they will typically never be lower than twenty eight rpm or higher than thirty two rpm, meaning that they tend to operate most efficiently and effectively in a relatively small range of speeds. It is also crucial to load the barrel of a tumbling drum carefully and efficiently. The barrel of a tumbling drum should never be overfilled, meaning that it should not be filled past sixty percent capacity. It should not be underfilled as well, with a load making up at least forty five percent capacity, if not more. Loads that are underfilled tend to end up with a poorer overall finish.

It’s also important to know that different barrels and different overall tumbling drums will have different needs and different safety requirements. For instance, different barrels can be filled with different amounts and the amount of parts that can fit safely in the barrel of a tumbling drum will depend heavily on the size of the barrel as well as the shape and weight of the parts and their overall fragility.
