Kleeman launches mobile jaw crushers in North America
Kleeman's new crushers are lighter and quicker to set up
Kleemann introduced two new crushers to the North American market at Conexpo: the Mobicat MC 110 Ri EVO and MC 110 Zi EVO mobile jaw crushers.
“We have redesigned the crushers to make them more lightweight for ease of transport and quicker to set-up,” said Nick Ford, technical sales manager for the mid-West for Kleeman. The MC 110 Ri takes 15 to 20 minutes to set-up said Ford, and the Ri and Zi weigh in at 38.5tonnes and 39.5tonnes respectively.
The MC 110 Ri has a vibratory feeder with integrated grizzly, while the MC 110 Zi incorporates a vibrating feeder with an independent, double-deck, heavy-duty prescreen. Both feature a crusher inlet of 0.7m by 1.1m.
Kleeman said that both systems result in less wear in the system because medium and smaller gradations bypass the crusher, with an increase in end product quality through discharge of fines via the side discharge conveyor. A bypass flap diverts the material flow, eliminating the need for a blind deck.
The machines’ crusher units have been redesigned to have an extra-long, articulated crusher jaw. Both machines use direct drive crushers and electric drives for the vibrating conveyors, belts and the prescreen. “This means that they consume less fuel,” said Ford. “Between 5 and 7gallons an hour.”
