A new series of cone crushers that features powerful automation and connectivity systems is set to improve productivity and performance for mines and quarries.

The upgraded Sandvik 800i cone crusher series is equipped with the new ACS-c 5 automation and connectivity system, which helps to make it easier to operate, manage, maintain and service. This results in productivity and uptime gains that improve operational performance, says Sandvik Rock Processing sales support manager Africa and Latin America: crushing division Nils-Peter Ahlqvist.

The crushers feature a simple, yet robust mechanical design with user-friendly automation to enable diverse operational roles. The new role-based interaction functionality helps to simplify the work of operators, maintenance personnel and engineers by offering guidance, and access to valuable data and tools for proactive maintenance and optimisation.

The ACS-c 5 automation system guides the operator through alarms and recommended actions, streamlining the decision-making process during alerts and minimising the impact of potential issues.

“Maintenance personnel have access to an improved historical and operational data log, providing a comprehensive overview of the crusher’s performance. The new automation system offers engineers more opportunities to monitor, analyse and optimise the crusher’s performance,” explains Sandvik Rock Processing business line manager crushing solutions: Africa Adam Taylor.

The upgraded crushers are designed to eliminate inefficiency in operating mines, as well as in greenfield operations. The machines are also suitable for use in high pressure grinding roll, or HPGR, circuits, with the ability to crush more and deliver finer particle sizes to the downstream processes.

“With the latest 800i crushers, we are able to produce much finer product (down to mill feeds of sub 6 mm) from our crushing and screening circuits, ultimately resulting in improved milling and overall process performance. This translates into less energy consumed and reduced wear in downstream processes. In other words, we allow customers to ‘crush more to grind less’,” says Ahlqvist.

The crushers are ready to be connected to Sandvik’s SAM cloud-based digital assistant. The app collects information from all connected Sandvik equipment to provide an overview of the entire operation, allowing for various functionalities including assessing the status of connected equipment, communicating across teams, viewing alerts and notifications and ordering spare parts.
