Sepro Mineral Systems’ new Blackhawk 100 cone crusher for heavy-duty crushing applications incorporates advanced technology with affordability to provide a reliable and simple-to-operate crushing solution, offering a combination of speed and 100 kW of power for fine crushing capability and high capacity in a compact design. The Blackhawk 100 can be used as a secondary or tertiary crusher as well as a pebble crusher—and also can be incorporated into modular process solutions offered by Sepro as part of a complete plant solution. The crusher is driven directly via a flexible coupling to the electric drive motor, eliminating the need for sheaves and v-belts and allowing for simplified operation and maintenance. A variable-speed drive package can be included to optimize machine speed to specific 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 for maintenance. In the event of tramp material entering the crusher, the hydraulic cylinder allows release of the material.
