ft400March 17, 2015 – KPI-JCI and
Astec Mobile Screens announced its new FT400DF track-mounted cone crushing
plant during the 2015 AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo in Baltimore.

The new FT400DF features a Kodiak®
Plus K400+ Cone Crusher, a track-mounted cone crushing plant designed to deliver
efficient material sizing. The Kodiak Plus K400+ Cone Crusher includes a tramp
iron relief (TIR) system that utilizes pressure relief valve technology that
minimizes crusher overload impact shock loads transmitted to the crusher
components, said Gary Heeszel, engineering manager for KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile
Screens’ Oregon manufacturing facility.

In addition, the FT400DF
features a Digsy control system designed to monitor engine load, hydraulic
pressures, cone hopper level, end delivery conveyor load and cone bowl float to
protect the plant from overload conditions.

“Our track design team has
developed a rugged mobile platform for the K400+ crusher that self-regulates
aggregate flow to maximize aggregate production and protect the plant from
overload,” Heeszel said. “This gives our operators confidence to run the
FT400DF at full production capacity without worry of overloading the plant.”
