McCloskey International's V80 vertical shaft impactor
McCloskey International’s V80 vertical shaft impactor (VSI) has been designed for producing high specification sealing aggregates; a high proportion of fines required for main roads/road-base or manufactured sand.
The heavy-duty, track-mounted VSI, which made its North American debut recently, has a Cemco Turbo T-80 VSI crusher and a C13 Cat engine producing 320kW.
The McCloskey V80 offers a number of internal rotor/rockbox/anvil configurations that are suited for a variety of applications, and the V80’s feed rate is controlled via a control panel, remote control or fully automatic regulation via feedback from the VSI. The main conveyor has a large stockpile capacity as a result of the standard extended conveyor, and the large access between crusher discharge and the main conveyor feedboot. The V80 also features an integrated hopper with folding rear door.
The control panel has machine diagnostics that McCloskey says can reduce downtime for maintenance. Said to be easy to move from site to site, the V80 has transport dimensions of 16.02m long, 2.9m wide and 3.4m high, weighing in at 39tonnes.
