The new Cedarapids TG320 spider bearing cone crusher
The TG series is the latest addition to the Cedarapids range of cone crushers.
Terex Mineral Processing Systems (MPS), which owns the Cedarapids brand, says the new TG Series will be a bronze bushing spider bearing cone and will complement the current Cedarapids MVPX series (screw type cone) and the Cedarapids TC series (floating bowl cone).
The new spider bearing range is focused on the aggregates and recycling industries and will consist of four models: the TG120 (120hp), TG220 (220hp), TG320 (320hp) and TG420 (420hp).
Each model is available in two versions, the TG (tertiary) and TGS (secondary). Terex MPS says the TG style can be run in a secondary, tertiary and a quaternary position. It adds that the TGS models, which can take an approximately 75% larger feed, are suitable for a secondary position or even a primary in a controlled feed sand & gravel application. There will also be two larger models available for large capacity mining and quarrying applications - the TG820 (820hp) & the TG1020 (1020hp).
Wayne van Antwerpen, group crusher technology product manager at Terex MPS, commented: “The new range of TG spider bearing cones, being offered in both the large feed secondary and the 'all-rounder' tertiary configuration, will put us in a complete class of our own in the industry with no other OEM able to offer such a diverse and extensive cone crusher portfolio."
He added that Terex MPS has been successful with its roller bearing cones - the Cedarapids MVPX and the Cedarapids TC cones - that offer customers the benefits of roller bearing technology.
"With the inclusion of bronze bushing technology, we can now open the door to the versatility that bronze bushings bring to the table," he added. "For example, the ability to quickly and easily alter the eccentric throw of the cone, on site, simply by rotating the eccentric bushing. No expensive conversions and costly parts.”
Terex MPS says that the new TG series spider bearing cones provide nominal maximum feed sizes and applied power similar to current Terex cone offerings, but the numerous eccentric throw options and liner configurations allow for increased application versatility.
