New-Generation Vanguard jaw crusher part of new range of crushing and screening equipment
KPI-JCI recently introduced several new-generation machines for the aggregates and recycling industries, including the 3055 Vanguard Jaw Crusher and the 170-foot long SuperStacker telescoping stacker.
The new-generation 3055 Vanguard Jaw Crusher features an optional tramp iron relief system that enables on-the-fly adjustment of the closed-side-setting, while providing overload protection from tramp-iron events. KPI-JCI says increased stroke, toggle angle and flywheel inertia provide up to 25 percent more production, greater efficiencies and lower fuel costs over competitive models.
Vanguard Jaw Crushers are designed to reduce maintenance and increase performance, and components such as the common flinger collar, stress-relieved base frame and machined saddle work to reduce cost-of-ownership.
The 170’ long SuperStacker™ is the KPI-JCI's latest model of telescoping stackers. SuperStackers™ are essential to building a desegregated stockpile and ensuring product quality. By controlling the extension of the stinger conveyor, radial travel and conveyor incline, layered windrows will be built, minimizing stockpile segregation. The new generation of SuperStackers™ has replaced the e-chain with the festoon system, providing less maintenance, smoother operation and better reliability. They also feature an enhanced Wizard Touch® automation control system, allowing for more stockpiling options.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
