Midvale, Utah – Raptor ® XL300 and XL400 Cone Crushers by FLSmidth Pekin, LLC, recently merged into FLSmidth Salt Lake City, Inc., are designed not only to meet producers’ stationary crushing needs, but are also fully engineered to enter the portable plant markets.
Working with preferred chassis and screen manufacturers, FLSmidth’s engineers can custom-design a portable wheel-mounted plant, based on customers’ unique applications. FLSmidth builds rear-discharge XL300 and XL400 wheeled plant models as stock available for immediate purchase.
Wheel-mounted plant options include rear discharge and rear feed-side discharge for both the XL300 and XL400. When combined with a horizontal 6-ft x 20-ft two- or three-deck screen, the XL300 can be configured into a closed-circuit crushing and screening plant. The XL300 and XL400 Cone Crushers can both be configured with two- or three-deck horizontal screens that are 6-ft, 7-ft or 8-ft x 20-ft, to provide open-circuit crushing and screening plants. Hydraulic run-on jacks are also available as an option to quickly level the plant into operating position after pulling onsite. This option eliminates the time consumption and safety issues created by leveling plants with cribbing timbers.
The XL300 and XL400 Cone Crushers feature a high pivot point and large crushing stroke that offers better crushing action throughout the crushing chamber. An active feed opening creates better end product shape for high production of salable material. The crusher line also employs “fail safe” hydraulics through an internal relief valve within the dual-acting tramp release cylinders, which ensures the machines stay protected from mechanical overload should an accumulator bladder fail. Advanced overload sensing technology detects crushing force overload. A simple alarm is activated, or the system can be automated to take corrective action. This same advanced automation system can be used to optimize crusher performance, feed control, setting adjustment and monitoring of all critical lubrication and hydraulic parameters.
An additional safety feature standard on all Raptor models is the counterclockwise rotation crushing action that protects the machine if adjustment ring movement is excessive or if the ring gear brake fails.
The growing family of Raptor High-Performance Cone Crushers includes the XL300, XL400, XL500, XL600, XL900, XL1100, XL1300 and XL2000 – the largest cone crusher available on the market. FLSmidth has designed these machines, employing the results of extensive research conducted with operator input, with the goal of keeping producers crushing at the highest production levels, in the most demanding hard rock mining and aggregate applications around the world.
