AGGREGATES MANAGER October 2014 10 Jaw update increases energy Significant changes to KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens' new genera- tion of Vanguard Jaw Crushers are said to reduce maintenance and increase energy and performance. Operator investment is protected through replaceable wear parts such as the jaw die seats and barrel pro- tector plate. Maintenance is simplified with a new jaw die wedge design that holds the jaw die in place. The manual shim adjustment method was eliminated as the closed-side setting is now adjusted through the use of hydraulic cylinders. New design components — including increased stroke, toggle angle, and flywheel inertia — enable operators to increase performance. The largest crushers in the line crush with a 1 1/2-inch stroke that opens wider and compresses material more to get material through the jaw quickly. KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens | Streamlined filter press McLanahan Corp. introduces its own line of filter presses. Designed to help operators better use wash water and land resources, the filter presses are said to eliminate the need for settling ponds. The dry, easy-to-handle byproducts pro- duced through the filter presses can be safely handled and disposed of. The filter press line is said to use few moving parts and was engineered with a single hydraulic cylinder. McLanahan Corp. | High output tracked jaw crusher Irock expands its product line to include the TJ-3046 Tracked Jaw Crusher. The primary jaw plant is designed for medium-scale operators in quarrying, demolition, recycling, and mining applications. It features a 13-cubic-yard feeder and a grizzly pre-screening grid. An optional sensor can be fitted to the jaw and controls the feed rate to the crusher to maximize production. The jaw crusher has an inlet opening of 46 inches by 30 inches and is equipped with a hydraulic wedge adjustment to give operators control of product size down to 2 inches. The high-swing jaw is said to generate an aggressive crush- ing action and accelerate movement of material into the crushing chamber. A 48-inch crusher discharge conveyor can stockpile up to 11 feet, 6 inches. The 110,250-pound unit can be equipped with a wireless remote control and is powered by a 350-horsepower Cat C-9 Acert Tier 3 engine. It can produce up to 445 tons per hour. Irock Crushers | Secondary belt cleaner Flexco's Y-Type Secondary Belt Cleaner improves belt- cleaning efficiency while easing maintenance, the manu- facturer says. The cleaner comes with 3-inch urethane blade segments that conform to worn or damaged belts, while the spring tensioner keeps consistent blade-to-belt contact and constant pressure on the belt. Available in sizes to fit belt widths from 18 to 48 inches, the second- ary cleaner is available with a standard abrasion-resistant purple blade. Blades can be removed or replaced indi- vidually or at one time. Flexco | ROLLOUTS
