EvoQuip launched the Cobra 290R crusher at Hillhead 2018, Building on the existing Cobra 230, the new compact impact crusher can operate in demanding operations, including reinforced concrete, recycled asphalt, construction and demolition waste, coal and natural rock.
The Cobra 290 has been working in a limestone application at Trotters Quarry in Ireland, where it has “surpassed expectations”, according to Richard Trotter, Managing Director of Trotters Quarry. “Don’t be deceived by size as, while the machine itself is compact in size, it punches way above its weight and I was really impressed with output.”
With throughput potential of up to 290 tph, depending on feed material and apron setting, the Cobra 290 uses a 315 hp. Volvo Engine to power the direct drive system.
At the heart of the Cobra 290 is the Terex CR055 impact crusher with a rotor size of 1000 mm x 1034 mm. Below the impact crusher, the customer can choose between the full-length conveyor design and the vibrating underpan feeder, which offers complete belt protection in heavy-duty recycling applications.
The large clearance from the rotor to the belt, the short distance from the crusher outlet to the magnet, and the ability to hydraulically raise and lower the conveyor all ensure optimal material flow through the machine.
There is an option for a single deck afterscreen system. This incorporates an aggressive 2.74 m x 1.5m screen, which provides the customer with a sized end product. The ability to quickly detach the complete afterscreen system, including the oversize conveyor, provides the customer the option or running the machine in standard mode or to transport it separately. It is possible to purchase and retrofit this option at a later date.
