Superior launches Valor Vertical Shaft Impactor

October 11, 2016  By Superior Industries

October 11, 2016 — Superior Industries Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has launched its new patent pending Valor Vertical Shaft Impactor (VSI).

The VSI is Superior’s second equipment solution for crushing bulk materials after launching the compression style Patriot Cone Crusher late last year. Impact style crushers, like the Valor VSI, produce a more cubically-shaped product. 

The VSI is equipped with a cartridge style, right angle pinion gearbox. This allows for a safe deck-mounted motor arrangement, which also simplifies access to the drive and its components. In addition, a hydraulically-powered lifting lid allows for safe and easy access to the crushing chamber. Maintenance inspectors are protected by a combination of automatic and manual safety interlocks. Thirdly, an innovative autogenous rotor design encourages more rock on rock crushing, which greatly extends the life of many internal parts. 

Superior manufactures models of its Valor VSI for rates up to 800 kph (725 mtph) and maximum feed sizes up to eight inches (203mm).
