Terex Cedarapids MVP450X cone crusher boasts increased uptime
The new Terex Cedarapids MVP450X cone crusher was also on display in the Terex booth. The crusher boasts major new enhancements, including high-speed clearing of jammed material, quick crusher separation capability for fast manganese changes, and easy-to-operate computer controls. The optional “Guardian” PLC control system optimizes production and is fully automated, according to the company. The 400-horsepower crusher incorporates pinned cylinder ends that remove quickly to allow fast cone separation for faster manganese changes. At the press of a button, fully guided dual-action tramp relief cylinders provide 6-inch lift for easy clearing of jammed feed material to reduce downtime. The company says the hydro-pneumatic tramp iron relief system instantly resets the crusher setting after passing uncrushable material without having to activate valves and pumps. The hydraulic-powered threaded upper assembly allows for quick crusher setting adjustment under load.
