LC450 TRACKED CONE CRUSHER—Cedarapids Tracked Cone Crushers offer excellent capabilities in crushing mid-hard and above mid-hard ores and rocks. Our range of Tracked Cone Crushers provide flexibility, high rates of productivity and excellent product shape in secondary and tertiary applications.
The Terex® Cedarapids LC450 incorporates the world leading Cedarapids MVP450X all roller bearing cone crusher. The MVP450X cone crusher is well known in the industry as being unmatched when it comes to producing high spec products, with exceptional shape, with output capacities that leave all competition in its wake. The cone crusher also includes a hydraulic, maintenance free, anti-spin device that helps improve cone liner wear life, as well as a hydraulic tramp overload protection system, TIR, that helps clear the crushing chamber of any potential tramp metal that may have entered the crusher with the feed material.
The LC450 tracked cone crusher also incorporates an automated metal detection system, located on the heavy duty feed conveyor, which stops the conveyor before the metal contaminant reaches the crusher. The plant also has the patented metal purge system that dramatically reduces downtime when removing the metal contaminate from the feed conveyor.The MVP450X Cone crusher is driven via V-belts by the powerful Caterpillar C18 Twin Turbo engine. The crusher eccentric speed can be adjusted, via the engine rpm, to best suit the given application and feed material. The plant also features a cone hopper level sensor, which can be controlled via the plant control system, which is used to regulate the speed of the feed conveyor to ensure that the feed hopper above the cone crusher is kept consistently full. The process is made far more convenient with the onboard video camera, mounted above the cone crusher, giving live images of the material entering the chamber.
