Terex Minerals Processing Systems (MPS), launched its ‘Making New Tracks’ large mobile plant strategy in North America at MINExpo.

“We have three new large tracked mobile plants which enable Terex MPS to diversify further from our modular, portable and static offerings,” said Terex MPS Market Area Director for Americas, David Quail. These are the LJ5532 Large Tracked Jaw Plant, LV2050 Large VSI Tracked Plant and LC450 Large Tracked Cone Plant.

The LC450 (shown here) incorporates the Cedarapids MVP450X all roller bearing cone crusher, known for its ability to produce high spec products, with exceptional shape and output capacities. The cone crusher includes a hydraulic, maintenance free, anti-spin device that helps improve cone liner wear life, as well as a hydraulic tramp overload protection system (TIR) that helps clear the crushing chamber of any potential tramp metal that may have entered the crusher with the feed material.

The cone crusher is driven by V-belts from the Caterpillar C18 Twin Turbo engine. The crusher eccentric speed can be adjusted, via the engine rpm, to best suit the given application and feed material.
