Specifically designed to deliver the exact amount of required grease every time the breaker operates, Lubemaxx helps to eliminate lengthy work stoppages as- sociated with manual hammer greasing operations. Operators gain productivity and efficiency with reduced repair and replacement costs through easily in- stalled, disposable grease cartridges fit- ted to a breaker-mounted pump. "At Indeco, we have a continual commit- ment to develop product innovations that specifically address customer re- quirements," said Mike Fischer, presi- dent and CEO of Indeco North America. "Based on recent customer feedback, we developed the Lubemaxx system to offer our clients a better lubrication process that keeps their Indeco ham- mers running trouble-free with mini- mal downtime and maximum efficien- cy. We're very excited to be able to offer our customers this latest technology." The Lubemaxx hardened pump is op- erated by the hydraulic pressure from the hammer. The unit simply installs to the breaker's housing with a mounting plate and requires no separate electri- cal cables. Additionally, the grease car- tridges feature a unique "see-through" channel so the operator can easily and accurately judge the amount of grease left in a cartridge thereby preventing accidental running of the hammer without lubrication. Lubemaxx grease cartridges contain Indeco's indus- try-recognized Supreme 1000 extra heavy-duty breaker lubricant which is specifically designed with copper and molybdenum to withstand extreme pressure and wear while maintaining excellent adhesive properties.

Combining aggressive crushing action, high crushing force and high power, this new generation of cone crushers takes the user to the next level of crushing, according to the company. "Throughout Weir Minerals, we strive to provide customers with the best pos- sible equipment to meet their crushing needs, which is why we developed the Trio TP cone crusher range," said Kurt O'Bryan, global product manager for crushing and screening at Weir Miner- als. "The new TP cone crushers operate at a higher speed than their predeces- sors which provides higher reduction with better shaped material." These compact, robust crushers are built with advanced cone crusher automation technology to ensure continuous high performance and application versatility. All Trio TP cone crushers feature a steep crush- ing chamber angle, a large crushing stroke and optimum speed to deliver a finer product through increased in- ter-particle comminution. "Safety has always been the number one priority for Weir Minerals, which is why our Trio TP cone crusher range is designed with self-protecting fea- tures to help achieve high levels of mechanical reliability under severe operating conditions whilst ensuring the safety of both operator and equip- ment," Bryan said. "Typically cone crushers are operated with high-ten- sion belt drives that are inefficient, require frequent maintenance and also become OH&S entanglement risk zones. Our engineers at Weir Miner- als recognize the importance of ener- gy efficiencies and reducing operat- ing costs. With this in mind, they have designed a reliable direct drive option for cone crushers. The direct drive sys- tem can be combined with a Variable Frequency Drive to further optimize crusher performance, resulting in sig- nificant energy savings." The Trio TP cone crushers' combi- nation of high flow, high pivot point, large throw and large head diameters results in superior performance. "All of our Trio TP cone crushers are fully instrumented with advanced lubrica- tion and hydraulic systems, allowing customers to monitor vibration, mo- tion, temperature, flow and pressure," Bryan said. For the customer, Trio TP cone crush- ers deliver high performance, safe and mechanically reliable crushing. "At Weir Minerals, our reputation for quality engineering and exceptional service is second-to-none. Combin- ing decades of experience with inno- vative designs and the highest quality materials, we believe that our Trio TP cone crusher range leads the industry in terms of reliability, productivity, ease of operation and maintenance," Bryan concluded.
