Sandvik Construction's new CH550 cone crusher
Sandvik Construction says its new generation of compact cone crusher provides customers with optimum performance and good cubical shape, while ensuring low operating costs per tonne for a wide range of materials and applications.
The all-new patented 18.9tonne Sandvik CH550, is based on the proven HYDROCONE design, with the CH550 combining the ability to produce excellent shaped products, in fewer crushing stages.”
The CH550 crusher has been developed in response to customer demands, building on the rock solid foundation of the HYDROCONE concept, says Sandvik.
With available power of 330kW and a head diameter of 1,100mm, it can be configured for either secondary or tertiary crusher applications, and has a wide performance range.
Sandvik says that in order to facilitate greater reduction ratios, efficiency and productivity, the CH550 offers a number of features. It is versatile with one of three eccentric bushings covering 90% of the application range; the Automatic Setting System, ASRi, is included as standard.
“It has effective power transfer capability thanks to new drive arrangements that gives a precise lining of the V-belts, and more than five times prolonged life time,” says Sandvik, pointing out that to minimise negative environmental impact, and to produce safer working conditions, the CH550 comes with no plastic backing. The motor has a high energy efficiency classification, resulting in less power consumption, thereby minimising Co2 emissions.
“Compared to earlier models, these features enable the crusher to reduce emissions by approximately 30 tonnes each year, equivalent to six persons annual emissions (annual Co2 consumption in Sweden ) as well as savings on operating power, thereby reducing total power consumption during the crushers operational lifetime.”
The ASRi system enables the crusher to run at maximum performance levels, and it adjusts automatically to the variations in feed conditions for an ideal final product.
