CRUSHING & BREAKING EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY ROCK products • OCTOBER 2014 35 GT206 The new GT206 features a heavy‐duty 20‐ x 6‐ft. inclined screen that offers more screen area and production potential than other competitive models, according to Patrick Reaver, product development manager for KPI‐JCI and Astec Mobile Screens' Illinois manufacturing facility. In addition to the larger screen, the GT206's fines side conveyor features a class‐leading discharge height for increased stockpile capacity. Wide, fixed catwalks allow for stability and additional safety. Easy, ground‐level access to all belt tensioners and ground‐level grease points provide for easy and safe mainte‐ nance. Interchangeable top deck options include mesh, bofor bars, punch plate and finger decks. The addition of a larger track‐mounted screening plant to the Global Track product line provides dealers and end users with a cost‐effective, highly productive and mobile option. The product line features quarry‐duty, time‐proven compo‐ nents and was developed to be the perfect rental tool and ideal for operations in remote locations. "The inclusion of the GT206 to our Global Track product line allows us to provide a more comprehensive offering to our deal‐ ers and end users," Reaver said. "The GT206 is a larger version of our GT165 screen and it will allow operators to scalp at higher production rates ahead of or behind primary crushing operations." FT400DF The new FT400DF features a Kodiak Plus K400+ Cone Crusher, a track‐mounted cone crushing plant designed to deliver effi‐ cient material sizing, making it a perfect choice for both mobile and stationary producers. The Kodiak Plus K400+ Cone Crusher includes a tramp iron re‐ lief (TIR) system that utilizes pressure relief valve technology that minimizes crusher overload impact shock loads transmit‐ ted to the crusher components, said Gary Heeszel, engineering manager for KPI‐JCI and Astec Mobile Screens' Oregon manu‐ facturing facility. In addition, the FT400DF features a Digsy control system de‐ signed to monitor engine load, hydraulic pressures, cone hop‐ per level, end delivery conveyor load and cone bowl float to pro‐ tect the plant from overload conditions. "Our track design team has developed a rugged mobile plat‐ form for the K400+ crusher that self‐regulates aggregate flow to maximize aggregate production and protect the plant from overload," Heeszel said. "This gives our operators confidence to run the FT400DF at full production capacity without worry of overloading the plant." KPI-JCI,
