Superior to release new cone crusher model at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
The crusher is one of a dozen new products the company will introduce during the exhibition
The P500 model Patriot Cone Crusher is engineered to operate most effectively at 500 hp (350 kW). Other specifications unique to the P500 include a head diameter of 59 inches (1,500 mm), maximum feed opening of 13.5 inches (343 mm) and closed side settings from 3/8 to 2 inches (10–50mm).
Notable features of the P500 model cone include a reverse design of tramp relief cylinders to ensure the hydraulic seals are not exposed to contamination during operation, as well as a tramp relief system designed with fewer accumulators for less maintenance. The crusher also contains a universal crushing chamber design that requires no major, time-consuming change outs when transitioning from secondary to tertiary applications. If a loss of clamping pressure occurs, counterclockwise countershaft rotation causes the crusher to open rather than turn down, which can cause significant damage.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
