By Andrew Snook
September 27, 2016 – Terex Finlay showed off its latest products during the company’s “America’s Open Day” event held at the La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas from Sept. 21 to 23.
The event featured live demonstrations at a local quarry of a variety of equipment, including the company’s I-140 impact crusher, 893 heavy duty screen, J-1170 jaw crusher, C-1540 cone crusher, 674 inclined screen, 873 heavy duty screen, 883+ heavy duty screen and C-1545P cone crusher.
The Terex Finlay I-140 impact crusher incorporates a Terex CR032 impact chamber with direct drive and advanced electronic control system to provide operators with high material reduction ratios and produces a consistent product shape. Other features include an improved ease of material flow through the machine; each component increases in width as the material moves through the machine; fully hydraulic assisted apron setting for making adjustment of the aprons convenient and efficient; a heavy duty vibrating feeder (VGF) with integral pre-screen that removes dirt fines and sizes bypass material for reprocessing; and an optional under crusher vibratory plate feeder with wear resistant liners aids material discharge flow.
The fuel efficient direct drive Terex Finlay C-1540 cone crusher is designed for medium-sized producers and contract crushing operators. This machine features the Terex 1000 cone crusher that is choke fed with integrated level sensor, automatic tramp relief and hydraulic closed side setting (CSS) adjustment. The large hopper/feeder has automated metal detection and a purge system to protect the cone and reduce downtime by removing metal contaminants via the purge chute. Additional benefits include, rapid set up time, ease of maintenance, high reduction ratio, high output capacity and advanced electronic control system.
674- 3 Deck
The 674 features a triple deck screen with galvanized all round fixed catwalk access for ease of operation and maintenance. The fourth (oversize plus) conveyor provides variable tilt and slide slew capability to accurately discharge materials for recirculation to crushers or for stockpiling. Maximum utilization of the three decks provides ultra-efficient screening capabilities even at small aggregate sizes, while an updated hopper and belt feeder gives improved material flow onto main conveyor. The screen box angle can be hydraulically adjusted to an angle between 18 to 37 degrees.
The Terex Finlay 893 has the capacity to process at a rate of up to 800 tonnes per hour and can be fed either by a tracked mobile crusher, shovel or an excavator. Depending on the application the working angle of the aggressive screen box can be hydraulically adjusted to between 14 and 18 degrees. A key feature of the machine is the capability to change the working angle of the hopper/feeder. The working positioned can be lowered so that it can work with ease with a mobile crusher. The hopper/feeder working position can be raised to provide a reduced feeder angle when operated in direct mode from an excavator or shovel. The screen box top deck can be fitted with a variety of screening media including; mesh, Punch plate, Bofor bars & Tines. The bottom deck can be fitted with mesh, punch plate and cascade fingers. This fully self-contained plant can be hydraulically folded and ready for transport in less than 30 minutes making it the ideal machine for large scale contract screening projects where a highly productive and dependable screen is paramount.
