Power Meets Portability in New McCloskey I4C Compact Impact Crusher
Published: 31/5, 2021
McCloskey International has unveiled the I4C, the latest entry into the company’s impact crusher line. The I4C brings the power and productivity of a 44.3-in (1,125mm) impactor to a compact footprint for maximum maneuverability. Taking the original impact crusher design and transforming it into a heavy-duty compact product that is more flexible and productive, the new mobile crushers maximize the efficiency of any project site.
Built to the same high standards as full-size crushers, the new I4C delivers additional convenience and choice to suit every customer’s needs. McCloskey engineers have adapted the design to meet the evolving requirements of today’s projects and operations by developing more compact products while maintaining the same high standard of McCloskey durability, reliability and quality.
The I4C compact impact crusher has been designed with a deeper chamber, creating greater tramp release space. With an aggressive blow bar and apron design, 4-bar variable speed rotor, and three crush zones with an optional fourth strike, the I4C can be set up as a primary or secondary crusher in some of the toughest materials.
A new asymmetric feeder reduces bridging that can occur in some applications and, combined with the single unit feeder-hopper construction, delivers better motion and vibration for the material as it moves into the impact chamber. Maximum efficiency of material flow is delivered end-to-end with the I4C - from the feeder to the new curved belt on the main conveyor that better manages material delivered to its impressive 13-ft (4m) high stockpile. With quick release and ground level access, the conveyor belt is also easy to maintain and service.
In addition, a chamber door safety sensor, built in safety shutdown functions, chamber safety arm and an innovative platform for changing blow bars all contribute to the safe operation and maintenance of the equipment. For maintenance ease the vast majority of components are identical between models to simplify spare parts. Ground-level access allows for quick service and maintenance, reducing the downtime for the operation.
McCloskey’s compact, mobile crushers are well-suited to construction and demolition recycling, asphalt recycling, and aggregates. With their fast set-up time and ability to nimbly move around in tight spaces, the crusher’s small footprint is uniquely suited to heavy duty applications where mobility and high production are key.
