Crushing for that Special Shape
FLSmidth Excel LLC says its Raptor XL400 cone crusher is a high-performing, cost-effective, versatile solution for aggregate operations and is ideal for use following a jaw crusher to produce usable and salable aggregate for asphalt chips, road base, railroad ballast, and more. The crusher features a 52-inch-diameter head, a one-piece cast steel mainframe, advanced overload sensing technology to detect crushing force overload, and “fail safe” hydraulics to protect the machine from mechanical overload.
Uses rock to crush rock
Metso Minerals says its Barmac B-Series VSI (vertical shaft impactor) is unique due to its crushing process — it uses the rock fed into the machine to crush itself. The company says it produces high-quality cubical-shaped aggregates that meet all major construction specifications — particularly road base, top-dressing chip, concrete and asphalt aggregates, and manufactured sand.
Universal Engineering says its “NGS” Impactor offers more cost-saving features than any other horizontal shaft impactor on the market today and features versatility in function and ease of maintenance. It also allows for an adjustable third curtain (apron) to be added to the field, and offers adjust-on-the-fly capability, according to the company.
