Jaw Crusher High Capacity / Throughput BB 500

Jaw Crusher High Capacity / Throughput BB 500

Retsch | Sample Preparation - Inorganic

The Jaw Crusher BB 500 XL is used forrapid, effective, crushing and pre-crushing of medium-hard, hard, brittle and tough materials.It is available in wide range of materials of construction including a heavy-metal free steel and offers excellent efficiency and unrivaled safety making this jaw crusher ideal for sample preparation in laboratories and industrial plants

For small amounts of sample the BB 500 XL is usedbatch-wise; for larger amounts it can be operatedcontinuously. Control of the gap width and zero-point adjustment allow for reproducible results.

The BB 500 XL with itssteep crushing chamber and powerful drive provides for very effective crushing kinematics.
