Last year Fintec extended their range of tracked crushing and screening units with the launch of the F1080 cone crusher. Designed in partnership with Sandvik, the machine allows Fintec to offer a complete solution for primary, secondary and tertiary applications.
At the heart of the F1080 is a Sandvik cone crusher equipped with hydraulic setting, tramp release and unblocking systems. A choice of crushing chambers and eccentric throws is available, allowing the crusher to be matched precisely to crushing requirements.
The F1080 is equipped with Sandvik’s proven Hydroset system, which allows crusher setting adjustments to be carried out in complete safety. This system also features automatic overload protection to permit the passage of tramp iron and other uncrushable material.
A level probe over the feed ring is used to regulate material flow via the feed belt, allowing the cone crusher to be continually choke-fed for maximum reduction, longer manganese life and optimal product shape.
According to Fintec, the F1080 is suitable for use as a secondary crusher in combination with a jaw or primary gyratory crusher, or in the third or fourth crushing stages. The company say they have supplied several ‘complete solutions’ to the aggregates industry, such as their well proven F1107 jaw crusher in tandem with an F1080 cone crusher and their F542 screening plant — a plant combination capable of producing 150–175 tonnes/h of Type 1 or 804-specification material.
