Terex unveils largest cone crusher yet

June 2011

THE Terex Finlay C-1550 is the latest addition to the Terex Mobile Processing Equipment (MPE) range of tracked mobile cone crushers. It is the largest cone crusher launched to date by the company and joins the successful and proven Terex Finlay C-1540 and C-1540RS models.

“The C-1550 incorporates the Terex 1300 cone crusher driven by direct drive and features an innovative optional pre-screen module with a single-deck 2.45 by 1.52 m screen for removal of fines from the feed material,” says a company spokesman.

The integrated chute system below the prescreen allows the fines to be discharged from the machine using the optional by-pass conveyor or reintroduced onto the main product conveyor. Both methods improve the plant throughput capacity, product flexibility and liner wear reduction, the spokesman says.

The pre-screen module can be used to produce a product from the optional by-pass conveyor, if used. The cone features a variable speed drive, hydraulic tramp relief system and the ability to change closed side setting while crushing. The large hopper/feeder has an automated metal detection and a purge system to protect the cone and reduce downtime by removing metal contaminants from the feed belt.

A Finlay J-1175 jaw crusher feeds a C-1550 which in turn feeds a Finlay 694 screen in a Canadian quarry.

Other features include fully hydraulic CSS adjustment and an 8-cu-m hopper capacity as standard. The hydraulically adjustable feed conveyor allows the machine to be operated using either the innovative prescreen system or, if required, by feeding directly into the cone.

“Terex Finlay C-1550s are already in operation across the globe. From the hot environments of the Australia outback to the icy cold environment of Canada, this machine has already proven to be a rock-solid performer,” concludes the spokesman.

Terex MPE has been manufacturing the Terex Finlay range of mobile crushing, screening, washing and recycling equipment for more than 50 years.

Terex Finlay, a global pioneer in mobile solutions, offers a comprehensive range of equipment to the quarrying, mining, construction, demolition and recycling industries. Its innovative machines are manufactured to provide efficient production, low operational costs and ease of maintenance.
