Title:
ANVIL UNIT FOR A MATERIAL REDUCING MACHINE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/074970
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A reducing machine is disclosed. The reducing machine includes a rotational reducing component, a power in-feed system for feeding material toward the rotational reducing component, and a mill box at least partially surrounding the rotational reducing component. The reducing machine also includes an anvil unit that can be inserted into the mill box and removed from the mill box. The anvil unit includes a ramp that bridges a gap between the power in-feed and the rotational reducing component. The anvil unit also includes an anvil main body having a first end positioned adjacent the power in-feed and a second end positioned adjacent the rotational reducing component. The anvil unit further includes first and second spaced-apart shear edges positioned adjacent to the second end of the anvil main body. The first and second shear edges cooperate with the rotational reducing component to provide consecutive shearing actions as reducing elements of the rotational reducing component move initially past the first shear edge and then subsequently past the second shear edge.
