Higher production and more efficient material flow delivered across applications
PETERBOROUGH, ON CANADA — McCloskey International has introduced a new highly efficient version of its I54 mobile impact crusher. Following worldwide field site visits, the feedback from the customers has resulted in significant changes to the I54 crusher, including direct drive, an enhanced material flow path, larger pre-screen, and a more open chassis.
Efficiency is boosted with the new crusher design, particularly in the material flow path. Each sectional component is wider than the last to allow an unrestricted flow without funneling or narrowing, eliminating material bridging. The straight sided chutes manage the material as it passes through each section that is wider than the last — feeder, to prescreen, and chamber to a wider optional underpan. Both main and side conveyors are now wider to accommodate the larger amount of prescreen material, and to allow for better discharge from the crushing chamber.
The direct drive crusher rotor is also a new feature on the I54v3, bringing more power, along with lower fuel costs. The redesigned open chassis allows for better access, and a hydraulic adjustable magnet contributes to easier operation of the crusher.
The I54v3’s new larger 8-foot double deck prescreen brings more efficient fines removal to production, maximizes the crusher’s productivity, and delivers screened product via a straight chute to a new, wider 32-inch side conveyor.
The I54v3’s versatility and upgraded design makes it ideal for some of the toughest applications worldwide, including asphalt recycling, concrete recycling, rock crushing, construction and demolition.
“Talking to our customers and gathering their feedback is what allows us to continually evolve our products. The re-design of the I54 has resulted from the collaboration between McCloskey and our customers,” said Paschal McCloskey, president and CEO of McCloskey International. “They rely on us to continually improve our products, and the feedback we get from them allows us to deliver the most productive, and relevant, equipment in the industry. We will always look at new and innovative ways to develop our products to meet the unique challenges of projects around the globe.”
