Terex MPS’ MC380X modular cone
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
Terex Minerals Processing Systems has introduced its MC380X modular cone plant for aggregate and mining customers. The MC380X features Terex Cedarapids’ high performance MVP380X cone crusher. The modular cone model boasts numerous features that increase the machine’s productivity and ease of use.
Major new enhancements include high speed clearing of jammed material; quick crusher separation capability for faster manganese changes; and user friendly computer controls enclosed in a robust weatherprotected control panel. Other key features of the MC380X include an extra-heavy-duty I-beam frame, galvanised steel structure including walkways, stairs and guard rails as standard. The module structure and all its components are CE compliant.
The modular structure of the MC380X bolts together on-site, boasting quick set-up times using basic tools. Pre-wired with a plug and play design, the Terex MPS modules require minimum on-site wiring. The flexible design of the module enables two possible positions for the discharge conveyor, allowing easy transport and site set-up.
Terex Cedarapids’ MVP380X cone with patented Rollercone design provides high efficiency crushing from a single drive 225kW electric motor. The cone also has an adjustable motor mount slide-base tensioning system with V-belt drive, drive guard, V-belt motor sheave, hub and key. Unique, it is claimed, to Terex MPS modular plants is the positioning in the modular structure of the hydraulic and lube skids. This is said to protect them and makes them part of the pre-wired set up.
Optional equipment for the MC380X includes a motor starter kit to run an off-plant cone feed conveyor, product discharge conveyor and feeder, easy upgrade overflow chute and full length skid base.
Mark Crooks, Terex MPS’ global modular product manager, said, “We are very proud to add the high-performance MC380X cone module to our expanding CR modular product line, further increasing our plant building stations, improving our application capabilities between 150–450tonnes/ hour and in particular, showcasing the innovative design and modular plant controls created by our experienced engineering team.”
