Superior Industries add new Dakota and Endeavor models to their existing Patriot cone crusher
SUPERIOR Industries Inc. will be debuting two new cone crusher models at this month’s Conexpo show in Las Vegas. Joining the company’s well-established Patriot cone crusher, the new Dakota and Endeavor models each have their own set of unique features, so aggregate producers get premium performance in a wide variety of applications.
‘We want to offer our customers a solution,’ said Jason Adams, president of Superior. ‘From one manufacturer, aggregate producers now have three cone crusher options and can pick what’s right for their application, marketplace, and crews.’
The new Dakota cone crusher is a roller bearing design, which typically offers the most efficient use of horsepower per tonne of crushed rock. Features include a steel threaded bowl, one-piece cast mainframe, a tramp relief system with fewer accumulators, and a hydraulically operated anti-spin system which eliminates the labour-intensive installation of individual gears.
Superior’s new Endeavor cone crusher is a spider bushing design. Historically, spider bushing cones accept the largest range of feed sizes and are known for simple operation and favourable maintenance. Other features of the Endeavor include the strongest shaft style in the industry to date, supported on a cast top and cast bottom shell; a top access chamber which is safer to access and simpler to maintain; and multiple strokes and liner configurations for increased application flexibility.
With the two new additions, a maximum feed opening of 18in (450mm) and power ratings from 200–800hp (150–600kW), Superior say their cone crushing products offer a high-performance solution in primary, secondary or tertiary applications within portable or stationary settings.
