Sandvik's new UH450E track-mounted tertiary crusher
Following market demands and special requests from customers, Sandvik decided to develop a new, more efficient mobile tertiary crusher with an innovative structure of the unit that would guarantee high screening performance.
Sandvik says that the new UH450E track-mounted tertiary crusher now fills a gap in the Sandvik range of crushers, and has become “a productive unit of highest quality ballast end products with a number of new effective characteristics.”
Unlike previous product generations, the UH450E is electrically powered. The process is powered by a Volvo Penta power pack model TAD1651GE power generation engine installed in a soundproof container.

“Compared with previous models, this much-requested feature improves the energy efficiency of the unit. Low fuel consumption, uptime and the good reputation of Volvo Penta engines were Sandvik’s main reasons for selecting a Volvo Penta engine for the new UH450E crusher,” says Sadnvik.
Volvo Penta’s TAD1651GE engine offers 505kVA prime power, and 556 kVA standby power, at 1,500rpm, and meets Stage IIIA/Tier 3 emission legislation.
In 2011, Volvo Penta and Sandvik signed a cooperation agreement with the goal to enhance the long-term competitiveness of Sandvik’s products
