Post a Global Launch in bauma Munich in April Sandvik Mining and Construction launched its latest range of Vertical Shaft Impactors (VSI) at the bauma Conexpo show in India. This is the first time customers have the opportunity to view this all-new world-leading VSI crusher, specifically designed to accommodate the requirements of Sandvik's customers in the mining, construction and recycling industries.
The new range comprises six models of VSI crushers from the smallest size CV215, handling tonnages from 10 tph, to the largest CV229 crusher, with nominal tonnages of 600 tph. Many world-leading innovative designs have been integrated into the 200 series, further reinforcing Sandvik's lead in autogenous VSI crusher design.
Sandvik's crusher development engineers focused on two main areas in direct response to requirements identified in customer feedback. The first was health and safety, an area in which the CV200 series of crushers offers considerable reductions in maintenance downtime, combined with improved safety with respect to working systems.
In the second main area of focus, a significant reduction in power requirements was achieved, thus cutting emissions released into the environment. With today's ever-increasing energy costs, Sandvik can now offer the lowest power consumption in VSI crushing, achieved through the innovative and revolutionary design of the rotor and crusher feed-control systems.
The other key features include the following, Patented Integrated Feed Tube Replacement System, Patented Radial Lock Cavity Ring, Patented Bi-Flow®
Acceleration Slides, Unique Key Safety Interlock System.
At Sandvik, Health and Safety is an integral component of all design. This is why we supply as standard a timed unique trapped two key system that ensures maintenance personnel safety combined with electrical isolation. Also supplied and fitted as standard are a vibration detection switch and a pre-start alarm siren.
The result is a range of advanced, reliable, low vibration machines that are unrivalled for their ability to increase productivity while minimizing downtime.
The product shape produced by the CV 200 series is optimal for the manufacture of quality concrete aggregates and manufactured sand (for concrete and asphalt). This feature, combined with world-leading crusher design, further strengthens Sandvik's position as a market leader. The innovative features of Sandvik's second-generation 200 series VSI crushers had been viewed by many customers at the launch of the range at bauma.
