FC 100 - Foam Crusher

The new ESCO foam bun crusher is 100" wide and uses a 20HP motor with chain drive on both sides to give 20,000 lbs of crushing force. This allows a 60" high block to be compressed to just 4 inches.

The bun crusher can be integrated into an automated cutting line allowing 50'-100' long buns to be conveyor fed to the crusher, crushed and then fed automatically to the ESCO blocking saw to cut blocks to the desired width and length, removing the outer skins.
