Track-mounted Rock Crusher
Traditional open pit mining required either costly fixed rock crusher installations or very limited mobility portable plant systems. The development of a track-mounted rock crusher allows extreme flexibility in bringing the actual crusher to the material. The track crusher eliminates high cost of fixed installations and reduces the amount conveyor systems required.
The system requires precise control of the hydraulic and lubrication systems for proper machine performance resulting in consistent material crushing. An application-specific PLC program with advanced Human Machine Interface (HMI) allows for active monitoring of all aspects of the crusher. Pressure and temperature transmitters monitor the lube system to ensure efficient machine operation and long bearing life resulting in improved up-time. Vibration sensors monitor shock loading caused by inconsistent materials to inform the operator of potential machine damage. By utilizing the HMI system, the track-mounted crusher is capable of quick setup and provides complete diagnostic information on the machine's performance.
