Description

ALTECH has specialized in the manufacture of equipment for all phases of compressed earth block (CEB) production, and the ALTECH Soil Disintegrator, of which two versions are available, represent the beginning of the CEB production line.

The smaller of the two types of disintegrator, the Projecting Disintegrator, is designed to project the crushed soil away from the machine, for example, onto the mixing area, and the larger one, Sieving Disintegrator, incorporates a vibrating screen, through which the pulverized material is discharged into a wheelbarrow.

The ALTECH Disintegrators are of the sledgehammer type and have an output large enough to feed two motorized presses or four manually operated block presses. The power is provided either by an electric motor (5 hp, 380 V, three phase) or an 8 hp petrol engine. A pair of wheels facilitate transportation to and manouvering within the production site. The machines are light enough to be moved by a single person.

ALTECH also offers conveyor belts and proportioning hoppers to facilitate the feeding of the disintegrator or collection of the output.

Operating the ALTECH Soil Disintegrator

While the main body of the two disintegrator types is the same, the feeding hopper of the Sieving Disintegrator is 60 cm higher than that of the Projecting Disintegrator. Hence, in the latter case, the raw material can be shovelled into the hopper manually, whereas it is more practical to feed the higher hopper with the help of a conveyor belt, or by installing a raised platform, from which a wheelbarrow can be emptied.

The hammers are detachable, so that they can easily be replaced when they are worn out. The sieve of the larger machine can also be used separately (without detatching it), even if the disintegrator is not in use.
