EVOQUIP set to make an impact at World of Asphalt / Agg1 with impact crushers
Cobra 230 model to be on display
EvoQuip will showcase the newest addition to their impact crushing range, the Cobra 230 at World of Asphalt in Texas from March 6-8, 2018. Offering a comprehensive portfolio of products to address the needs of the compact crushing and screening markets. The Cobra 230 is the newest addition to their impact crushing range. Matt Dickson, EvoQuip, Product Line Director said, "The Cobra 230 Impact Crusher is a machine that provides class leading productivity, unmatched versatility and excellent fuel efficiency. The quick set up times, simple intuitive operation and ease of transport makes this machine an ideal solution for all applications. We are on the lookout for new distributors for the EvoQuip brand and I would invite anyone interested in this to come to our booth so we can discuss this excellent opportunity."
The Cobra 230 has been on test with J & V Construction in Ireland. Gerd McCann - J & V Construction Director said "The EvoQuip Cobra 230 has managed to surpass our expectations, handling a mix of difficult rock and heavy duty recycled concrete with ease, and turning it into products we have been able to reuse on our construction sites."
The rapid set up time and intuitive control system on the Cobra 230 enables the operator to be crushing minutes after unloading the machine from the lorry. The operator can also adjust the crusher setting easily without the need for any tools using the user friendly hydraulic assist that is standard on the machine. There are a number of key design features in the Cobra 230 that ensure an optimal material flow through the crushing process. As material moves from the feeder through the impactor onto the product belt each section becomes wider ensuring an unrestricted flow. The excellent under crusher clearance, the short distance from the crusher discharge to the magnet and the ability to lower the product conveyor while running make the Cobra 230 the ideal machine in all applications.
The Cobra 230 uses an extremely fuel efficient and high performing direct drive system to power the impact crusher. This along with the two independent hydraulic controlled aprons allows the operator to optimize the material throughput and reduction whilst ensuring the best fuel efficiency.
Serviceability has been integral throughout the design and development of the Cobra 230. With ground level access to the engine, hydraulics, service and refueling points, it ensures maintenance is easy for the operator. This is further enhanced with features such as the hinged radiator pack and hinged diesel tank. The compact footprint makes the Cobra 230 easy to transport and also makes it an ideal machine for working in urban areas.
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.
