Following the successful completion of field trials, Sandvik’s highly successful CM 1208i mobile jaw crusher has now been complemented by the CM 4800i mobile cone crusher.
Operational improvements to the cone crusher’s design include an extended feed hopper to cope with surge feed from a previous jaw crusher and to provide the ability to accept feed from a wheel loader if operated as a stand-alone unit, making the machine very flexible.
The CM 4800i is fully automated and features sequential start-up and shutdown. Operation of the unit is monitored and managed by an ‘intelligent’ control system, which also provides a full history of production, operation, service and malfunctions, providing support to both the operator and the service engineer.
Operationally, the CM 4800i offers great flexibility, permitting chamber selection from extra coarse with a nominal 230mm feed, to a fine chamber for tertiary production of final aggregates, while developments to the crusher feed arrangement ensure improved reduction and throughput capacity.
Sandvik say the CM 1208i and CM 4800i represent two of the most powerful crushers in their class, both of which can be transported as complete units, allowing track-on and track-off site-to-site operation.
