Sandvik says its CH800i series of connected cone crushers is the first to offer intelligent crushing based on actionable information via the My Sandvik portal.
The Swedish quarrying and mining equipment giant adds that this enables managers and operators to make decisions based on facts, and see areas for improvement directly, increasing up-time and availability.
My Sandvik is the latest innovation in Sandvik crushers. Other automation features continuously measure and compensate for crusher liner wear, while Hydroset and the electric dump valve automatically provide overload protection to let tramp iron or other uncrushable material pass through. The automatic setting regulation (ASRi) control sysem automatically adapts crushers to variations in feed conditions.
Sandvik CH800i comes with a range of upgrades, including a 65% stronger main shaft, and top and bottom shells that are up to 50% stronger than previous models, offering more reliability and higher availability.
“New, digital technologies will transform the way mines and quarries work,” says Mats Dahlberg, vice president lifecycle service stationary crushing and screening, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology. “My Sandvik is the first major step in gaining insights into productivity and predictive maintenance that will drive our industry forward.”
The new CH800i crusher system can be purchased as a completely new crusher, or you can choose a Sandvik Reborn solution, replacing an existing crusher for a new one and reutilising existing auxiliaries and infrastructure. This plug and play installation minimises disruption and maximises productivity, while offering up to 40% cost savings compared to a complete crusher system.
