Caterpillar says its new G Series 775 off-highway truck will be the first Cat machine to go into production with a Tier 4 Final emissions solution. The company says emissions reduction technologies are integrated into the machine’s design, allowing the truck to perform at peak production while reducing emissions by approximately 90 percent.
Crusher wear studies
Columbia Steel says the information provided in its ‘wear studies’ will help plant operators and their suppliers select the right wear part designs and alloys for any given job. The studies provide real-world equipment data — feed and discharge information, throughput rates, change-out records, and measurements on worn parts.
Energy-saving electromagnetic vibratory feeders
Eriez says its heavy-duty electromagnetic vibratory feeders have an energy-saving intermeshed AC/permanent magnet drive that makes them workhorses. The feeders require minimal maintenance and feature an electromagnetic design that has no moving parts, eliminating the need for lubrication. The feeders are available in nine models with capacities to 850 tons per hour.
Nitrogen gas-assisted breaker
Doosan says its DXB170H hydraulic breaker features nitrogen gas-assisted operation for improved efficiency. The 3,572-pound breaker delivers up to 600 blows per minute and is designed for use with excavators in the 18- to 28-metric-ton weight range. Other features include a patented hydraulic dampening system said to prevent blank fire damage, an energy recovery system said to increase strike power using energy generated by piston rebound, and a patented main valve design said to reduce hydraulic pressure peaks.
Software tracks equipment maintenance
HCSS says its equipment maintenance software program, Equipment 360, enables companies to manage their entire maintenance operation, thus lowering costs. The program tracks and stores itemized cost history for each piece of equipment. Its work-order management system provides a framework for capturing labor and parts costs; mechanics can enter their time directly into the system.
Compact, self-contained submersible pumps
Godwin Pumps will display two hydraulic, submersible, compact, self-contained Heidra pumps — the HS80HH and HS150HH. The HS80HH is a top-discharging pump with a 3-inch pump end and diesel-driven power pack. It features a flow up to 450 gallons per minute and 325 feet of total dynamic head with a simple throttle adjustment. The HS150HH features a 6-inch pump end, diesel-driven power pack, flow and head requirements up to 1,250 gallons per minute, total dynamic head requirements up to 460 feet, and the ability to handle solids up to 1 3/8 inches in diameter.
