Mequon, Wisconsin, USA – The new Telsmith T400™ cone crusher was selected by the editorial staff of Aggregates Manager magazine as one of the “Top Roll-outs” of 2014.
Rated with the largest in-class clearing stroke and the highest in-class crushing force, the Telsmith T400™ Cone Crusher delivers 300 kW performance and a crushing capacity output range from 135 to 545 MTPH. Ideally suited to a variety of tough quarry and mining applications, the T400™ Cone Crusher is engineered for maximum productivity, and lower operating costs. For increased uptime and safety, the T400™ features a large clearing circuit, which is engineered to safely and quickly allow any uncrushable materials to pass. Designed with a maximum feed opening of 305 mm, the T400™ Cone is complete with a 1321 mm diameter head; a 1397 mm receiving hopper; replaceable mainframe liners; epoxy-secured manganese steel crushing members and more. To minimize downtime and reduce inventory costs, the T400 ™ enables the use of a single bowl for all liners over its range of operation – allowing optimum versatility, flexibility, and efficiency in any aggregate or mining application.
For optimum wear life and reduced maintenance time and costs, the Telsmith T400™ features a new and improved patent-pending anti-spin feature that prevents head spin to extend manganese life. Like other key components, it’s mounted on top of the machine to offer easy top-service access. The T400™ is also designed to operate with pressure lubrication oil, while eliminating the use of a gear box and a separate hydraulic circuit. Additional serviceability features differentiate the T400™ from conventional units that typically require significantly more time in routine service. For example, the T400™ is designed with six cylinders (which is fewer in number than that of conventional units), yet offers the largest crushing force availability. The Telsmith T400™ is also nitrogen-free and is engineered with a patented release system that eliminates the need for maintenance-intensive hydraulic accumulators. Even more operational cost savings stem from features such as a patent-pending concave (bowl liner) retention system which consists of a specially-designed and positioned lip ring that centers the bowl and achieves retention without the use of hammers and other hand tools.
Lastly, the T400™ features the largest-in-class, patent-pending hybrid bearings. These hybrid bearings feature a washer and ramp design that replaces the conventional use of a socket, socket liner, and head ball – all of which typically require time-consuming removal when servicing the machine. Note that unlike roller bearing machines, these large hybrid bearings offer both a static and dynamic lift – which results in far greater lift to efficiently carry the crushing forces.
