:: Superior Shows New Cone Crusher to Mining Industry at MINExpo 2016

 

Superior Industries, Inc., a major U.S. manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, showed their new Patriot™ Cone Crusher at MINExpo International 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The high-performance cone is the manufacturer’s first entry into crushing technologies for bulk processing applications.

Besides a strong commitment to service and convenient access to wear parts, the Patriot Cone Crusher will be recognized for rugged structural integrity and high-grade components to extend service life. Internally, bronze sleeve bearings are used for all moving components that are load bearing or perform load transmission (including countershaft bushings, thrust bearings, head and eccentric bushings and socket liners). In addition, these critical components are cast of high-grade steel, which typically exceeds standards for conventional cone crushers.

Superior says engineers uniquely designed high throw and high-pivot point crushing performance to achieve strong production rates at a low cost per ton. Mobile applications will appreciate a readily mounted design for transportation on a cone/screen chassis.

For protection from costly structural damage, each Patriot Cone Crusher is equipped with fail-safe hydraulics to defend the unit against damaging mechanical overload. Additionally, standard relief valves within the dual acting tramp release cylinders provide immediate, alternative protection should the accumulator fail. Engineers also developed overload sensing technology. In the event of force overload, a simple alarm can activate or optional advanced sensing technology will automatically take the necessary corrective action. This same automation can control the feed rate to optimize performance, adjust other settings and monitor critical lubrication and hydraulic parameters.

Models include units for 200 to 500 horsepower operating conditions and production rates up to 805 tons per hour (730 mtph).
