Rollouts February 2011
Your complete guide to new and updated equipment and supplies in the aggregates industry.
The new Terex Cedarapids CRC380HLS portable crushing and screening plant’s design is said to allow the cone crusher to be constantly choke fed, maximizing production capability. The high-lift screen and cone hopper overflow system allow a large head of material to build up to force feed the cone crusher, which increases throughput. The large cone hopper and overflow chute buffer feed variations and prevent material from backing up to the screen, which allows production rates to stay at peak levels with no need to throttle back. A gross throughput of up to 1,200 tons per hour is possible, according to the company.
Con-E-Co Co., an Oshkosh Corp. company, says its new 58-foot-long, single-axle mobile conveyor is available in either a rail radial or individual plant-supported configuration to meet individual customer needs. The non-folding unit’s 30-inch-wide belt provides 500-tons-per-hour output, according to the company. The 11-foot, 6-inch by 11-foot, 6-inch receiving hopper is mounted onto the conveyor during transport for easy shipping.
Asgco says its Safe-Guard return idler cage provides a cost-effective, durable solution for guarding needs. The cage is designed to catch the return idler to keep it from falling onto workers or equipment, preventing injuries and down time. Its open-slot design prevents material buildup. It is easy to install and remove for belt maintenance, using the mounting kit provided, which includes beam clamps, links, and adjustable chains. The cage is available in various sizes to fit most belt conveyors.
Tramac says its new V4500 heavy breaker was specifically engineered to provide a higher energy per blow. With an impact class of 13,000 foot pounds, the breaker fits carriers ranging from 99,200 to 176,400 pounds and has an operating weight of 9,921 pounds. The tool is 7.5 inches in diameter and 29.7 inches long. Other features include blank-firing protection to prevent metal-on-metal contact, a pressure regulator valve to prevent overpressure and accidental overflow, reinforced suspension to absorb vibration, an automatic pressure regulator to ensure constant operation despite variation in flow or temperature, an automatic frequency adaptation system, an energy recovery feature that captures rebound energy for the next blow, and an automatic greasing system.
Vortex Valves says its new Titan Series abrasion-resistant slide gate features gravity flow with a dust-tight seal. The gate is framed with a carbon steel channel and features live-loaded, wear-compensating seals that prevent materials from escaping into the bonnet area of the gate. The gate uses easily accessible, hardened-steel, cam-adjustable rollers instead of blade guides. A wide selection of gate positioning controls, position indication switches, and flanges make it easy to adapt the gate to a system. Gates are available in standard sizes from 6 to 30 inches with custom square or rectangular sizes up to 72 inches and larger.
