The unit is the latest addition to the Kodiak Plus Cone Crusher family and fills a demand for larger secondary and tertiary cone crushers that are used by highproduction aggregate producers and mining companies. Some of the refinements implemented into the Kodiak Plus product line include a new hybrid cast/fabricated base frame design, the 'MILO' automated control system, a new patented liner retention system, a patented thread locking ring, and an anti-spin cone brake. KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens | Railcar weighing system Schenk Process introduces LegalWeight, a system that weighs railcars in motion. The design uses instrumented concrete weighing ties equipped with precision load cells that measure vertical force. Integrated into the existing rail without any gaps or joins in the rail, it can operate legal-for-trade at speeds up to 14 mph. Installation of the system is done without a pit and is mounted directly on top of the ballast to reduce overall installation time to less than two days for most applications. Schenck Process | Performance tire for high-scrub applications Bridgestone Commercial Solutions rolls out a new edition of its Ecopia product line. The R268 all-position radial, designed for pickup trucks, is said to provide tire performance that stands up to high-scrub environments while also offering fuel efficiency advantages. Its tread design and protective features are purpose designed to extend tire life. A wave channel design reduces groove bottom strain to combat the initiation and spread of irregular wear, while ribs are proportioned for added stiffness to help reduce irregular wear throughout the footprint. The addition of a NanoPro-Tech compound limits energy loss for improved rolling resistance and optimum fuel efficiency, while a high-scrub tread compound enhances resistance to tread scrubbing.
