’s new series of premium series CH800i connected cone crushers includes a range of performance upgrades, some via the My Sandvik portal.
This enables managers and operators to make fact-based decisions to improve areas that can reduce the risk of downtime for equipment.
Other Sandvik automation features continuously measure and compensate for crusher liner wear, while Hydroset and the electric dump valve automatically provide overload protection to let tramp iron and other uncrushable material pass through.
Meanwhile, ASRi automatically adapts crushers to variations in feed conditions, explains Mats Dahlberg, Sandvik’s vice president for life cycle service within the company’s Mining and Rock Technology division.
Other upgrades for the CH800i series include a 65% stronger main shaft, and top and bottom shells that are up to 50% stronger than previous models, offering more reliability and higher availability.
The CH800i has bolted rather than welded top and bottom shell liners to reduce maintenance time and add greater safety. Since no welding is needed when changing liners, the process is up to 90% faster.
The new CH800i crusher system can be purchased as a completely new crusher, or clients can choose a Sandvik Reborn solution, replacing an existing crusher for a new one and reuses existing auxiliaries and infrastructure. This plug and play installation minimises disruption while maximising productivity - up to 40% cost savings compared to a complete crusher system, according to the company.
