Sepro’s Blackhawk 100 cone crusher
By Andrew Macklin
October 27, 2015 – Sepro Mineral Systems Corp. introduced its new Blackhawk 100 Cone Crusher for heavy-duty mining and aggregate applications.
The Blackhawk 100 Cone Crusher is engineered in-house, in partnership with key industry personnel who specialize in crusher design. The new cone crusher is built to provide a new heavy-duty crushing option for small and medium sized projects.
The combination of the speed and eccentric throw of the 100-kilowatt cone crusher provides fine crushing capability and high capacity in a very compact design. The Sepro Blackhawk 100 is capable of being applied as a secondary or tertiary crusher as well as a pebble crusher. The new cone crusher can be incorporated into modular process solutions offered by Sepro Mineral Systems Corp. as part of a complete plant solution.
The Sepro Blackhawk 100 is driven directly via a flexible coupling to the electric drive motor. This arrangement eliminates the need for sheaves and v-belts, allowing for simplified operation and maintenance. A variable speed drive package can be included to optimize the speed of the machine to the given liner profile, feed and production conditions.
The lock bolt design for holding the cone liner in place eliminates the need for a torch or burning ring. In the event of tramp material entering the crusher, the hydraulic cylinder allows the release of the material.
