Weir Minerals announced the global release of its Trio Top Performance cone crusher range. Combining aggressive crushing action, high crushing force and high power, this new generation of top performing cone crushers takes the user to the next level of cone crushing.
“Throughout Weir Minerals, we strive to provide customers with the best possible equipment to meet their crushing needs, which is why we developed the Trio TP cone crusher range,” said Kurt O’Bryan, global product manager for crushing and screening at Weir Minerals. “The new TP cone crushers operate at a higher speed than their predecessors which provides higher reduction with better shaped material.”
These compact, robust crushers are built with advanced cone crusher automation technology to ensure continuous high performance and application versatility. All Trio TP cone crushers feature a steep crushing chamber angle, a large crushing stroke and optimum speed to deliver a finer product through increased inter-particle comminution.
“Safety has always been the number one priority for Weir Minerals, which is why our Trio TP cone crusher range is designed with self-protecting features to help achieve high levels of mechanical reliability under severe operating conditions whilst ensuring the safety of both operator and equipment,” O’Bryan said.
“Typically cone crushers are operated with high tension belt drives that are inefficient, require frequent maintenance and also become OH&S entanglement risk zones,” O’Bryan explained. “Our engineers at Weir Minerals recognize the importance of energy efficiencies and reducing operating costs. With this in mind, they have designed a reliable direct drive option for cone crushers. The direct drive system can be combined with a Variable Frequency Drive to further optimize crusher performance, resulting in significant energy savings.”
The Trio TP cone crushers’ unique combination of high flow, high pivot point, large throw and large head diameters results in superior performance. “All of our Trio TP cone crushers are fully instrumented with advanced lubrication and hydraulic systems, allowing customers to monitor vibration, motion, temperature, flow and pressure,” O’Bryan said.
