HP-CM AUT: Automatic mortar crusher

The automatic mortar crusher- Highest level sample prearation with minimum contamination and material loss

Area of application

Crushing (mortar crusher) of sample material for x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, diffracotmetry and other analytical procedures

Catalysts, different materials, clinker, cement, slag, ores (feed max. 200 x 200 mm)

Operation mode
Automatic, standalone


Specially designed for minmal material loss and contamination
The HP-C/M AUT has been designed based on the strict requirements for crushing of catalytic converter. The material recovery in the machine is substantially more than 99%. The cleaning procedure within the machine is efficiently avoiding cross contamination between sample batches. The HP-CM AUT complies completely with the strict requirements of the PGM recycling industry. The machine can also be used for a variety of other material types.

Feeding of large pieces
The HP-CM AUT is suitable for standard mobile emission catalysts with a maximum diameter of 200 mm. Dependent on the selected gap width of the mortar crusher the end fineness is between 1 and 5 mm. This output grain size is optimal for further processing within a fine grinding mill to prepare the material for analytical methods like, e.g., fire assay, borate fusion, ICP, AA or wet chemistry.

Safe and ergonomic operation
The crushed material is caught in a container positioned below the mortar crusher output. After crushing is finished the container is transported to the output position and is ready for further material handling. Simultaneously, the automated compressed air cleaning cycle of the machine is initiated.
Safety measures like, e.g., the locking device on the input flap fulfill highest safety requirements. The extremely sturdy construction of the welded sectional steel frame and all other components guarantee trouble-free performance and long machine life.
