Coimbatore-based mineral processing equipment manufacturing major, Propel Industries, has widened its product portfolio to include mechanical sensor pavers, the new concrete batch mix plants, and the new battery-operated tipper trucks.
Propel’s new fully battery-powered tipper trucks for use by quarry owners offers integrated mineral processing solutions for hauling boulders as well as crushed materials. The tipper has a gross weight of 45 tons and a 30-ton payload. Its 80 cum Hardox box body ensures high durability, while its 6x4 axle configuration gives faster cycle time during loading, transporting, and tipping, in combined mode at quarry sites and also for long distances.
Propel’s new track-mounted QM 250S Endurer cone crusher is designed to operate between capacities of 150-380 TPH, and to maximize throughput and product shape in a wide range of crushing applications. The inclusion of a double deck vibrating screen allows oversized materials to be circulated for re-crushing and for sized end-products. Its cost effectiveness is justified by its low fuel consumption, low operating and maintenance costs, as well as capacity and environment friendliness.
The new track-mounted 2-deck screen PSS 1550 scalper has a top deck size of 4800x1540 mm and bottom deck of 4700x1540 mm.“It is a combination of extremely accurate scalp material screening of end-product and gives high output. It has a low fuel consumption and low operating cost, and can be used for multiple applications such as mining, recycling, and normal aggregates pre-screening,” informs Senthilkumar.
Propel’s AVCG series of Gratory cone crusher comes in two models: the AVCG 350 that delivers crushing output of 300 to 400 TPH, and the AVCG 600 that delivers an output of 375 to 550 TPH. The competitive design features are the two piece concave system with increased bottom shell product discharge area, constant feed opening crusher chamber, and the large feed opening to match application and field adjustable crushing stroke.
“We aim to meet the newer applications needs of customers with products that perform efficiently and are also cost competitive. Our sensor pavers, concrete batch mix plants, and battery operated tipper trucks have been designed and value engineered to optimize productivity so that they deliver high return on investment,” says Senthilkumar.
Our IoT architecture is driven by three goals- reducing process variability, increasing productivity and improving plant uptime. We use a data driven proactive method to help analyze the condition of our plant and predict problems before they occur. This helps us prevent sudden outages, machine trips etc., and reduces maintenance costs and manpower required.
“To lower operating cost and to ensure higher equipment availability, we have made all our plants automated, plus they are already PLC driven. Through automation, critical areas like feed control, level of crushing, throughput, and even fuel consumption can be monitored. This helps towards reducing the maintenance costs as quantum of the wear and tear can be monitored,” he adds.
