HPE Africa – four new mobile McCloskey cone crushers

HPE Africa has extended its range of McCloskey crushing and screening equipment, to include four new high-performance mobile cone crushers, available in various sizes and throughput capacities.

These recently-launched McCloskey cone crushers – the C2R, C2, C3 and C4 units – have been designed for secondary and tertiary crushing, mainly in aggregate processing and mining. Other applications are in demolition, construction, environmental and general industrial industries.

McCloskey C2R recirculating cone crushers combine the productivity of the 38” cone, with the versatility of a full screen and recirculating system, enabling the production of high quality crushed and screened final product, with one machine.

The C2R machine is an entry-level cone, with full level features, including an anti-spin system, load and material level monitoring, fully hydraulic push-button closed side setting (CSS) adjust and a hydraulic relief system. The 5’ x 10’ high energy screenbox, which allows greater control over the final product, has a user-friendly wedge design for faster screen changes.

Another key feature includes a steel hopper with an adjustable feed rate, which is remotely controlled or via fully automatic regulation, with feedback from the cone.

Unobstructed material flow

Portable C2 cone crushers provide dependable secondary crushing solutions for operators requiring performance rates up to 300 tons per hour. This machine offers versatility in crushing spreads, with easy conversion from the finest to the coarsest cavity. An adjustable speed facility produces a higher percentage of on-spec product with fewer crushing stages, resulting in lower operating costs and reduced energy consumption. There is a large gap between the crusher discharge and the main conveyor feedboot to prevent bottlenecking, ensuring an unobstructed material flow.

McCloskey C3 mobile cone crushers, suitable for secondary crushing, produce materials from 9,5 mm to 44 mm in size, delivering stockpile heights of 3 887 mm. These units have a 48” cone and engines with 328 kW power ratings. The dynamic CSS can be changed during operation, which minimises downtime.

Quick and easy maintenance procedures

Heavy-duty C4 units, with a 48” cone and 1 130 mm feed opening, have been designed to handle the toughest and most abrasive materials in mining, aggregates and recycling. These cone crushers have an integrated hopper with a rear-folding door to facilitate direct loading and a direct crusher drive for increased power and lower fuel consumption. An open chassis enables quick and easy maintenance procedures.

This machine also has a dynamic CSS, which can be efficiently changed during operation and a steel hopper with an adjustable feed rate, which is remotely controlled or via fully automatic regulation, with feedback from the cone. The robust crushing chamber, which withstands operation in arduous conditions, produces materials from 9 mm to 50 mm in size.

HPE Africa’s McCloskey range, which is manufactured to stringent quality and safety standards, also includes modular and mobile jaw and impact crushers; trommel and vibrating screeners, stacking conveyors and washing systems.

The company is also the exclusive distributor locally for Hyundai Construction Equipment and Soosan hydraulic hammers and quick couplers.
