Anaconda Equipment has added the I12-R impact crusher to its lineup.

The mid-sized impact crusher is ideal for quarrying and recycling applications. It features a 43-in (1090 mm) diameter, four-bar rotor on a 45-in (1140-mm) wide McLanahan Universal Crushers impact chamber.

The I12-R is fitted with a large hopper area and an aggressive vibrating pan feeder with a two-tier grizzly section to help facilitate the movement of the feed material towards the impact chamber.

The grizzly section allows for fines and smaller dirt to be eliminated from entering the chamber by discharging it onto the side dirt conveyor.

There is also an option on this model of adding a pre-screen before the chamber, which will aid fines removal and therefore reduce unnecessary wear on the chamber.

Engine and recirculation

Like all Anaconda crushers, the I12-R is outfitted with a Cummins engine. Available in Stage 5 (U.S and EU) or Tier 2 (ROW), the Cummins L9 Performance engines offer emissions levels that are pushed to nearly zero.

The new after-treatment system uses SCR and DPF, which eliminates exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). Removing EGR has made installation and maintenance easier, generated less to cool throughout the engine and allowed for the power and torque to be increased, creating a higher machine capability for the I12-R.

Improved fuel consumption and low noise emissions also allow the I12-R to work in urban or restricted areas.

The recirculation kit now has a double deck screen box after the crushing chamber, feeding into either the auxiliary recirculation conveyor or the tail conveyor to join the finished product.

The recirculation screen can also be quickly detached, which will then convert the machine to a standard I12 unit.
