Feeder breakers are used mainly used in underground mining of products such as coal and Potash. The original BLACK DIAMOND feeder breaker was originally developed and introduced into coalmines in 2006. The feeder breaker is traditionally used between the mobile mining machinery and the fixed conveyor systems. The main function of the feeder breaker is to reduce the product down to a manageable size and smooth the flow on to the mine’s conveyor belts. Black Diamond Feeder Breakers are robust, modular and highly reliable. Machines are built around a standard pool of sub systems and components to ensure a high degree of inter changeability, modular replacement, low spares, thus offering a very high availability to its users.
