The CH550 cone crusher, one of Sandvik Construction's launches at bauma Africa
Sandvik Construction launched two developments at 2013’s first Bauma Africa: the CH550 cone crusher and the DH350 surface drill rig.
The CH550, part of the new generation of compact cone crushers, is based on the proven Hydrocone design, and is said to combine the ability to produce excellent shaped products in fewer crushing stages.
The new Sandvik DH350 drill rig is a diesel powered, crawler mounted, self-contained down-the-hole drilling rig, that has been designed for drilling with 3”, 4” and 5” hammers in the 89–152mm (3 ½ - 6”) hole range.
Operational productivity, hole-accuracy and drilling smoothness, are further enhanced by a heavy-duty rotary head that supplies a torque of 2530 Nm, with fuel costs being minimised with two separate power sources.
Satu Ramo, global marketing communications manager Sandvik Construction states: “The Sandvik Construction range of equipment is perfect for our African customers. The ranges enable them to process materials from virgin rock right through to demolition materials, which can then be recycled for continued use.”
