Glen Creston’s Roller crusher mill is a machine that Process engineers will find indispensable due to its low profile and ease of inclusion into process lines.

This rugged, slow-running mill is equipped with either a single or double roller shafts fitted with crushing cams which rotate between crushing and stripping combs. Different shaped crushing elements are available depending on material.

The Roller Crusher is particularly suitable for de-agglomeration of materials from sacks or silos, pre-crushing softer minerals and for granulating coarse lumpy, caked or compacted materials into more manageable lump sizes.

Features include:

Suitable for:
  • Robust construction
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Compact design allows retro-fitting into existing process lines.
  • Parts easily removed for maintenance/repair
  • Pigments and Resin
  • Food and Pharmaceutical
  • Coal
  • Waste materials and Ash
  • Minerals


The crushing cams of wear-resistant steel are mounted on the roller shaft in staggered positions, accurately spaced so that they pass between the crushing and stripping combs which are mounted laterally on opposite sides of the inner housing. Both sets of combs are identical in design but have different functions.

The bearing plates at both ends of the housing accommodate the roller bearings, protected by radial seals, in which the shaft rotates. These bearing housings can be offered in extended mountings to allow for cooling when processing high temperature materials such as power station ash.

The second shaft of the Double Roll Crusher is driven by grease-lubricated gear wheels on the outside of the housing.

For preparation of laboratory scale samples or for light industrial applications, Glen Creston also manufactures and supplies an extensive range of quality standard machines for grinding, mixing, crushing and micronizing applications. The larger machines can cope with higher throughputs whilst still producing reasonable particle sizes, on materials such as chemicals, minerals, soil, cement, coal, aggregates, plus many more.

From our Jaw Crusher, for primary sample breakage prior to further processing, to the McCrone Mill, which will grind to analytical fineness, these machines can cope with a wide range of materials from rocks to edible grains.

Several of the machines can be used either as stand alone machines for a laboratory or incorporated into process lines for in-line processing of material.

We have an application test laboratory equipped with a range of machines where we evaluate customers sample materials and recommend suitable models for their purposes. We also carry out ongoing evaluations of various other materials with the main aim of improving our range of machines and performance criteria.

Glen Creston strives to improve their machines as well as manufacture and design bespoke special machines to customers’ specific requirements for grinding and crushing applications.
