FLSmidth has recently introduced a crusher based on a strike-bar system, aiming to help cement producers reduce the effect of wear and lower operating costs. The FLSmidth Strike-Bar Crusher uses highly-durable materials to maximise utilization of wear parts before they need replacing.
As an example, the strike bars are segmented with each segment able to be easily interchanged, rotated and repositioned. “Interchanging between four different positions makes each strike bar usable for to 50% of its original weight,” said Peter Jeppesen, Global Product Line Manager at FLSmidth. “Wear parts in other systems typically need to be discarded at a much earlier stage, which is both expensive and wasteful.”
The new crusher also allows quick alignment of the gap between rotors and breaker plates, which is crucial to achieving the desired size of crushed material. Alignment is achieved via a hydraulic and spring positioning system that cuts alignment time down to a few minutes.
“A driving goal for FLSmidth is to help cement producers lower the total cost of ownership of their product equipment,” concluded Jeppeson.
“When it comes to crushing equipment, FLSmidth’s product developers have focused intently on wear parts as a significant source of savings as well as simplifying maintenance throughout the crusher’s lifetime. With the new FLSmidth Strike-Bar Crusher, FLSmidth has taken a significant step towards achieving the goal.”
