The new Terex Cedarapids CRC380HLS portable crushing and screening plant was on display in the Terex booth at ConExpo-Con/Agg. The company says the plant is designed to allow constant choke feeding in order to maximize production. Its high lift screen and cone hopper overflow system allow a large head of material to build up, force-feeding the cone crusher. The large cone hopper and overflow chute buffer feed variations and prevent material from backing up to the screen, allowing peak production rates with no need to throttle back. According to the company, a gross throughput of up to 1,200 tons per hour is possible in sand and gravel. The plant quickly transforms between operating and transport modes. The 6-foot by 20-foot TSH6203 triple-deck horizontal screen has a unique blending gate system that allows combining center and bottom decks in 25 percent increments. Two large 30-inch, 7.5-horsepower reversible product conveyors discharge up to 44 inches beyond the plant frame on either side. The four-axle configuration and a 3+1-axle option provide portability.
