New hybrid compact jaw crusher designed for ease of use, adaptability and fuel efficiency
COMPACT crushing and screening equipment manufacturers EvoQuip have introduced a new hybrid hook-lift jaw crusher – the EvoQuip Bison 160 Hybrid.
Well suited to hard rock as well as construction and demolition recycling applications, the Bison 160 Hybrid is the fourth model in the brand’s popular Bison series and the first to utilize hybrid diesel-electric drive technology to reduce running costs, noise and fuel emissions, making it particularly suitable for applications in urban areas.
The dual-powered Bison 160 is equipped with a proven 700mm x 500mm (28in x 20in) single-toggle, hydraulically adjustable jaw crusher.
The innovative electric drive the crusher to be reversed to clear a blockage or run in reverse for asphalt recycling, ensuring better all-round efficiency.
An optional deflector plate fitted on the moving jaw provides belt protection by allowing uncrushable objects to pass through the crushing chamber and on to the discharge belt.
Suitable for contractors and operators working in space-restricted sites, the Bison 160 jaw crusher is a highly adaptable machine that has been designed with the specific needs of the owner/operator in mind.
Ease of transport, compact size, simplicity of operation and quick set-up times all mean the Bison 160 can get to site easily and begin operating within minutes of unloading.
The Bison 160 Hybrid is well suited to recycling applications with generous under-crusher clearance, minimal snag points and a short distance between the crusher discharge conveyor and overband magnet, which can discharge rebar to the right or left of the machine depending on site configuration.
The new Bison 160 includes a heavy-duty vibrating grizzly feeder. The intelligent feeder control system is based on power draw and feed level to ensure optimal material flow and throughput.
EvoQuip product line director Matt Dickson commented: ‘The Bison 160 Hybrid hook-lift jaw crusher represents a new milestone for EvoQuip. It is an ideal crusher for waste contractors who can utilize existing hook-lift vehicles to either bring material to depot for processing or alternatively bring the crusher to the waste on site – turning waste into profit whilst providing excellent productivity and fuel efficiency.
‘The incorporation of the hybrid diesel-electric drive technology, quick set-up times, simple operation and ease of transport makes this machine an ideal solution for indoor and outdoor applications, while reducing overall fuel consumption, noise and harmful emissions. These are all issues which our customers have identified as key priorities for the future.
‘Serviceability has always been a cornerstone of EvoQuip equipment, and the Bison 160 Hybrid is no different, with excellent access ensuring maintenance is easy for the operator to carry out.’
A key design feature of the EvoQuip Bison 160, which can be ordered from EvoQuip dealers worldwide, is that it is small enough to fit inside a standard 40ft high cube container yet robust and durable enough to withstand challenging applications.
