Latest crushing and screening technologies to be introduced for the first time at Las Vegas show
ASTEC companies Kolberg Pioneer Inc. (KPI), Johnson Crushers International Inc. (JCI) and Astec Mobile Screens Inc., will be making a host of new product announcements as well as showcasing current aggregate processing equipment at Conexpo-Con/Agg.
KPI will be introducing their first hybrid FT4250CC horizontal shaft impactor, which comes with a new two-deck pre-screen that minimizes the amount of undersized material passing through the chamber.
The company says this reduces wear costs and increases the amount of final product by up to 30%. For economical fuel consumption, the hybrid option on the FT4250CC allows customers to operate the plant using either line power or diesel fuel.
KPI will also be showcasing their Pioneer 2742 jaw crusher, which features unique shaft and bearing assemblies for easy troubleshooting, reduced maintenance and ‘20% more capacity than competitive models’. Other products on show will include a demonstration of KPI’s new water clarification technology.
Meanwhile, JCI will be exhibiting the latest addition to their Kodiak Plus cone crusher line – the K350+. The new model has been specially engineered to offer increases in drivetrain, stroke, horsepower, weight, head diameter and hold-down force, resulting in greater capacity compared with other similar-sized cones.
Astec Mobile Screens will be presenting their latest Ranger line of compact, track-mounted equipment. The mobile line will include a variety of jaw crushers, impact crushers, cone crushers, incline screens and trommels.
These compact units will serve a variety of new markets including construction, quarry operations and plant and tool hire. The ease-of-use, ease-of-transport, versatility and flexibility of the Ranger line makes them particularly suitable for smaller operations that require powerful machines with a limited footprint.
Taking centre stage in the Astec Mobile Screens section of the stand will be the J20 jaw crusher.
