Cone Crusher


The new Terex Cedarapids MVP450X Cone Crusher boasts numerous features that increase the machine’s productivity and ease of use, according to the company.  Major new enhancements include high-speed clearing of jammed material; quick crusher separation capability for faster manganese changes; and easy-to-operate computer controls. The optional “Guardian” PLC control system optimizes production and is fully automated. The new 400 hp (298 kW) MVP450X incorporates pinned cylinder ends that remove quickly to allow fast cone separation which results in faster manganese changes, reducing downtime. At the press of a button, fully guided dual action tramp relief cylinders provide 6-in. (152 mm) lift for easy clearing of jammed feed material to reduce downtime and increase productivity. The hydro-pneumatic tramp iron relief system resets the crusher setting after passing uncrushable material without having to activate valves and pumps. A high flow manifold system with five accumulators provides redundant cylinder protection. The hydraulic powered threaded upper assembly allows for quick crusher setting adjustment under load. Computer-optimized main frame components are high-endurance, all-cast construction. The new cone head is  four times stronger for longer life. ElJay Rollercone roller-bearing design provides high efficiency. Thoroughly field-tested for two years in abrasive, hard rock applications, the MVP450X has proven its durability and productivity, the company said.
