Aggregates Manager’s Guide to ConExpo-Con/Agg 2008
Excavator-mounted jaw crusher buckets
Giberson Enterprises will display its Eco-Crusher excavator-mounted jaw crusher buckets at ConExpo-Con/Agg. The line includes the BG60 for 18,000-pound or larger excavators; the BF70 for 28,000-pound or larger excavators; the BF90 for 48,000-pound or larger excavators; and the BF120 for 68,000-pound and larger excavators. Production rates range from 15 to 99 tons per hour, depending on bucket size. The bucket is designed to crush material with a maximum input product thickness of 15 inches for recycle and 10 inches for aggregate into an end product that ranges from 6 inches to 1-inch minus.
Mobile secondary crushing
Sandvik Mining & Construction USA LLC will feature its UH440i, a highly flexible, mobile secondary crushing unit that is said to provide a quick return on investment. The “i” stands for built-in intelligence designed to ensure smart and trouble-free operation. The system features a Sandvik CH440 cone crusher and the ASRi crusher control system. It can operate independently or in a system with other units, particularly the Sandvik CM1208i primary crushing unit. The secondary is designed for quick setup and close-down and has a hydraulically foldable feed conveyor. Easily accessible maintenance items streamline regular maintenance.
Streamlined scale entry stations
Automated Access Solutions will showcase methods to improve scale house throughput, reduce labor, and extend operating hours with its Access entry stations that can process cash and credit card transactions. The company offers vehicle identification and weighing systems that can automate one or more lanes at the scale house to improve speed and accuracy. The system is designed to complement existing management systems. It is based on the Microsoft “.NET” platform and SQL Server and is said to be able to integrate with any management system. MatreX, a Web-based transaction processing system, provides real-time data, consolidates data from multiple sites, and allows users to export data into billing and management systems.
Phoenix Process Equipment Co. will highlight its aggregate fines recovery and water clarification processes at ConExpo-Con/Agg. Its recent innovation, the Ultrasep Ultra High Rate Thickener, features no moving parts and requires a small footprint. It produces high underflow solids of up to 60 percent and is designed for easy installation and relocation.
Wire and urethane screen support
Unified Screening & Crushing will introduce Superflow, an advanced combination of wire cloth and urethane support strip. This special hybrid product expands the company’s Unified Clean Screen product line, which includes wire cloth, rubber, and urethane screen surfaces and is designed to improve throughput.
Richwood will promote its new technology to protect conveyor belts — the Combi-Pact Impact Saddle. Designed to address the shortcomings of earlier technology, it is a bolt-in replacement for conventional idlers and is distinguished by a curved surface supporting the whole area of belt in contact. Installed in arrays, the saddle can replace impact beds or cradles of many feet in length. They are built with a unitized steel frame to provide strength and with ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene impact segments that match the conveyor’s trough exactly to protect the full width of the belt. No part of the conveyor is left unprotected. The density of the segments is said to be instrumental in preventing alien materials from becoming embedded in the belt carcass. Designed as a direct replacement for conventional idlers, it can be used in all types of applications ranging from light to heavy duty.
Tough crushing solutions
IROCK will feature its RDS-20, which it describes as the most powerful, versatile, compact crushing and screening system on the market. Suitable for processing aggregate, demolition debris, and recyclable materials up to 500 tons per hour, its patented Hydraset Hopper System is designed to attach and remove the hopper/feeder module as a unit without the aid of any outside lifting devices. This allows the hopper/feeder module to be detached and transported in minutes. With independent power to operate the removal or installation process, it can be loaded on a trailer, moved to a remote jobsite, and reassembled to the crushing unit safely and easily by a single person.
