The star of the show insofar as the Sandvik booth goes was the company’s new CH550 cone crusher. This 18.9-ton crusher attacks material with a 442 horsepower motor and can be configured for either secondary or tertiary crusher applications.
The CH550 is based in the company’s Hydrocone design. An automatic setting system delivers optimal material reduction and shape, and one of three eccentric bushings with cover 90 percent of the application range.
Wear parts have been adapted for a long lifetime per ton produced and new drive arrangements precisely align the V-belts more effectively transfer power.
Compared to earlier models the CH550 results in lower energy use per ton, reducing emissions of CO2 by 30 tons a year and reducing operating costs.
