Yankton, South Dakota – September 14, 2009 – Maximum efficiency and worry-free operation are hallmarks of KPI-JCI equipment, and with the introduction of the Kodiak Plus series of cone crushers, getting the job done is easier and faster than ever before.
“Spending time making adjustments or switching parts costs time and money,” says Mike Johnson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at KPI-JCI. “The Kodiak Plus Series is engineered to reduce downtime and maintenance to solve that issue.”
Reducing the need to re-circulate loads through a series of patented innovations is the key to the Kodiak Plus Series. Precision-designed roller bearings generate higher efficiencies and reduce operating temperatures while allowing a high tolerance to climate and temperature fluctuations.
A tramp iron relief system with pressure relief valves eliminates maintenance costs associated with accumulators. Field replaceable segmented brass thread inserts resist galling and welding to decrease downtime for maintenance.
“The Kodiak Plus Series provides worry-free operation in rugged machinery,” says Johnson. “This is our way of helping our customers positively impact their bottom line.”
