Page 48 of 51 Crushing & Breaking October 2017 | 47 Products Sandvik Introduces Cost-Effective Cone Crusher Rebuild Solution Depending on the application, a crusher is either at the heart of the process or is a vital part of the process. It simply cannot be removed for extended periods of time without affecting the pro- ductivity. If major components start to fail and the crusher begins nearing the end of its life, Sandvik can replace it and restore the entire crushing system to its original glory. The Sandvik Reborn solution rebuilds a crusher system by ex- changing the existing crusher for a new one, and reutilizing existing crusher auxiliaries. This cost-effective solution is up to 40 percent cheaper than replacing the entire crusher system, and is fully com- patible with existing plant infrastructure. It also minimizes the risk of unplanned downtime that can come with a major overhaul. "Our Sandvik Reborn solution is a quick and cost-effective way to replace a customer's worn out crusher with a new one and reuse all of the existing infrastructure," said Andreas Christoffersson, prod- uct manager – rebuilds and upgrades, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology. "The new crusher is also backed by our three-year ex- tended warranty, and includes on-site services to help customers maximize productivity." If the auxiliaries meet preconditions for durability and quality, Sandvik can provide a solution to replace the customers' existing Sandvik crusher. Reutilizing existing crusher auxiliaries usually includes the motor, lubrication and hydraulic tank, hoses, coolers, automation system, sub-frame, electrical cabinets and wiring. As part of the program, the customer will trade in their old crusher. The footprint of the new crusher is identical to the old one, so there is no need to redo any civil or electrical engineering work or alter the feeder and conveyor arrangements. Sandvik Reborn is an efficient "plug and play" installation that minimizes disruption and maximizes productivity. A certified Sandvik technician will be on site to supervise the instal- lation of the new crusher to guarantee it is done quickly, thoroughly and efficiently. The customer also gets training in how to best use and maintain the new crusher, as well as condition inspections after the installation that offer maintenance recommendations and alerts about worn-down parts they need to order. Sandvik, Telsmith Offers New Product in T-Series Line Telsmith offers the latest innovation in its T-Series cone crusher line. The newest model in the line of T-Series crushers that were originally introduced in 2012 is the T500, which is designed to deliver max- imum uptime availability while also minimizing maintenance costs. This 500 hp crusher contains a 356 mm (14-in.) maximum feed opening and is capable of processing between 285 and 775 mtph. Features, such as anti-spin and fewer cylinders than competitive crushers provide the reliability that customers depend upon to max- imize their processing operations. The company also featured an all-new portable jaw plant, featuring the H3450 Hydra-Jaw crusher. The 863- x 1270-mm opening of the H3450 Hydra-Jaw is capable of processing up to 598 mtph, while the hydraulic toggle reduces maintenance and lowers operat- ing costs with fast, safe hydraulic chamber clearing and tramp iron overload relief with auto resets.
