KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Debut New Products
Kolberg-Pioneer (KPI) used Conexpo to introduce its first hybrid FT4250CC horizontal shaft impactor plant equipped with a pre-screen. The new two-deck pre-screen minimizes the amount of undersized material that passes through the chamber, reducing wear costs and increasing the amount of final product by up to 30%. The hybrid power option allows producers to operate using either line power or diesel fuel for added flexibility. KPI also featured its 2742 Pioneer® jaw crusher, which features unique shaft and bearing assembly designs for easy troubleshooting, reduced maintenance and a twenty percent greater capacity than competitive models.
Nearby, Johnson Crushers International (JCI) is exhibited the latest addition to the Kodiak® Plus cone crusher line, the K350+. This new model features increases in drive train, stroke, horsepower, weight, head diameter, and hold-down force, resulting in up to 10% more capacity compared to other similar-sized cones. Completing the trifecta, Astec Mobile Screens introduced its new Ranger™ line, comprised of compact, track-mounted units. The mobile line will include a variety of jaw crushers, cone crushers, impact crushers, incline screens and trommels to serve a variety of markets including building and construction, landscaping, quarry operations and plant, and tool hire. Their ease-of-use, ease-of-transport, versatility, and flexibility make them ideal for smaller operations that require powerful equipment with a limited footprint.
