​ALLU introduces TS Drum Assembly

ALLU has introduced the new, patented ALLU TS® drum assembly construction, which allows customers in construction and recycling applications to achieve flexibility in performing multiple jobs with one unit, just by repositioning standard screening blades. Manufactured for the ALLU D-Series material processor attachment for excavators, loaders and other carriers - Allu screener crusher bucket frames - the core of the ALLU TS technology is the configuration of the screening blades that spin between the screening combs. The end product size is defined by the space between the combs, and different fragment sizes can be achieved simply by repositioning the combs. Because the screening combs carry most of the material weight, the drums and bearings experience less impact and load. The design of the assembly ensures the machine works well in wet and dry materials without clogging.

Top Ten Questions to ask when considering purchase of a mobile impact crusher

At CONEXPO 2017 KEESTRACK displayed the tracked impactor R3, the smallest unit of its impactor range and the 55-ton R5.

  1. What is the intended application, material type and amount of material to be processed, as well as end-product desired, and what are the projected costs per ton, after purchase, for running the machine?
  2. What are the environmental considerations applicable in the area where the machine will operate, and is electric power readily available and cost-effective?
  3. What are the key technical specifications of the model being considered, including: engine horsepower, weight of rotor and blow bars, as well as hopper capacity, feeding height, machine weight, dimensions and ease of transport?
  4. Is the rotor drive direct-drive from the engine, electric-drive or hydraulic-drive?
  5. Does the model being considered have the capability to track (move) while crushing?
  6. Will your impact crusher be used in tandem with a jaw crusher or a screen plant, and how will product flow through your system? 
  7. Would a built-in screen be beneficial, and what other options, including magnetic separation, conveying, feeders and integrated systems need to be considered?
  8. What type/quality are key components, including wear parts, hydraulics and electronics, and what is the type and quality of steel used in frame, crusher housing and rotor? 
  9. Does the impact crusher have a user friendly design, with ease of changing blow bars, and ease of access for maintenance and servicing? 
  10. If a part is needed, what is the turn-around time from your distributor or manufacturer?

Drum cutter attachment for demolition robot line

Husqvarna introduces the DC 200 drum cutter, a new attachment for the DXR demolition robot product line. The DC 200 is a versatile attachment made for surface profiling rock or concrete, trenching, excavating frozen soil, soft rock excavation in quarries, demolition and dredging. The 56 tungsten carbide-tipped picks on each side of the machine rotate and chip away at the surface material to the desired depth or complete removal. If the material is not completely removed, a smoother, more uniform surface results as well as smaller, finer grain sizes so material can be removed more easily or used as back fill without additional crushing. The DC 200 is suitable for use on restricted jobsites and sensitive urban areas due to the low noise and low vibration levels.
