New Track-Mounted GT200 Cone Crusher Unveiled at 2014 National Dealer Conference
KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens has unveiled its new track-mounted GT200 cone crushing plant, one of the company’s newest additions to the Global Track product line.
The new track-mounted GT200 features a 1200LS Cone Crusher, which includes a new tramp iron relief (TIR) system that utilizes pressure relief valve technology. The new TIR system minimizes crusher overload impact shock loads transmitted to the crusher components, says Stephen Whyte, product management consultant for KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens.
In addition to the new tramp iron relief system, the new GT200’s 1200LS Cone Crusher includes a new hydraulic chamber clear feature, which raises the crusher’s upper crushing chamber, allowing the rock to flow through the crushing chamber by simply activating a manual valve. The cone crusher utilizes all roller bearing construction for improved production and energy efficiency when compared to crushers with bushing construction, Whyte said. The plant also features a one-piece cast steel base frame for improved strength, and its crusher chamber is designed to crush a broad range of aggregate in feed sizes at various closed-side-settings utilizing a standard-liner configuration.
The addition of the track-mounted cone crusher to the Global Track product line was a crucial step in providing dealers and end users with a cost-effective, highly productive and mobile option. The Global Track product line features quarry-duty, time-proven components and was developed to be the perfect rental tool and ideal for operations in remote locations. KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens is a premiere heavy equipment manufacturer for the aggregate, recycling and construction industries.
“With the GT200 cone crushing plant, we are able to offer our dealers a more complete product line offering,” Whyte said. “The GT200 is designed using hydraulic and electrical systems that are simple and easy to understand and maintain. Because Global Track systems are engineered to be completely compatible with each other, our end users can combine them to build the perfect system for their operations.”
