The Extec X44 SBS cone crusher’s design and capacity have been specifically adapted to the markets real requirements, and to fully complement, and strengthen, Extec’s existing crusher portfolio, the company said.
New features of the crusher design include the diesel hydraulic drive Cat C-13 diesel engine and variable speed, high torque for controlled continuous feed.
The X44 SBS also has a feed hopper, mounted on hydraulically controlled slew ring, which decreases down time after metal detection in in-feed material and a hydraulic closed side setting adjustment.
The cone unit itself is a Telesmith 44SBS complete with a hydraulic closed side setting adjustment, which allows the X44 SBS unit to be set to produce a range of products from .39 to 1.7 in. (10 to 45 mm). The X44 SBS possesses a throughput dependent on whether the unit is used in a closed or open circuit set up. A rate of 451.9 ton (410 t) per hour can be achieved with the coarsest setting in an open circuit.
The hydraulic closed side setting adjustment has been developed to enable crusher setting changes to be made quickly and easily, according to the manufacturer. The adjustment is activated through the control box, making this system suitable for applications where regular cone setting adjustments are required.
The X44 SBS uses a Cat C-13 diesel engine to provide the power for the hydraulic power pack, and to generate electricity for the electrical systems of the machine. The tracks, feeder, cone, conveyors and all other working parts of the machine are hydraulically driven.
