How the right crusher improves mining safety, functionality and reliability

Many OEMs have made the decision to discontinue their live-shaft cone crushers – but every mining and sand and aggregate operation is different, and a one-size-fits all approach isn’t enough. In some applications and situations, pedestal (fixed-shaft) style crushers may be the best solution.

Mining Energy Consumption 2021

Laying out the true scale of the industry’s energy use at a time of great pressure to increase sustainability within mining, this high-level study analyses mine energy data from over 40 published studies to give a comprehensive understanding of where energy is consumed in mining and minerals processing. Commissioned by Weir Group plc, the study highlights the importance of decarbonisation for the industry, while identifying a number of essential energy and emissions reduction opportunities.

The right partner can empower OEMs to choose the machine best suited to their crushing needs.

Weir Minerals is the only global equipment manufacturer that offers both the TC live shaft and TP fixed-shaft style machines.

“The combination of the Trio TP and TC fixed and live-shaft cone crushers ensures that Weir Minerals continue to offer their customers the right technology, regardless of their site structure, operating conditions or application,” says Mark Utecht, Weir Minerals’ director of comminution engineering.

The most advanced technology

Weir Minerals has upgraded its range of Trio® TC live-shaft cone crushers. The Trio® TC84XR features all the robust design elements that have made live-shaft crushers a fixture of the mining and sand and aggregate industries for generations, while also incorporating the latest technology to ensure it remains integral to flowsheets long into the future.

Trio® live- and fixed-shaft cone crushers are made for modern mines and quarries, with advanced hydraulics, wear resistant material and the latest technology.

The recent technology upgrades in the Trio® TC84XR crusher have improved its safety, functionality and reliability.

“At Weir Minerals, we understand and appreciate the important role live-shaft cone crushers play in today’s challenging crushing applications,” says Ekkhart Matthies, global application director. “Combining decades of experience and first-hand customer feedback with innovative designs, the highest quality materials and latest in control technology, we believe that our new Trio TC84XR cone crusher is the most reliable and robust live-shaft cone in the market today.”

Engineered to perform in the most extreme applications, the Trio® TC84XR crusher is robust and easy to maintain and operate. It reliably delivers high crushing force and high horsepower in primary, crushed ore and quarry rock applications.

The ability of the TC84XR crusher to handle variable feed and crush pebbles is also partly a result of its large motor; it’s been designed with higher power capability than comparable cone crushers. Ultimately, this translates to a higher potential crushing force and therefore increase in production.

Another feature that allows it to handle variable feed, as well as deal with tramp material safely, is the fully automated tramp-release and setting recovery system. The tramp-release hydraulics can also be used to safely clear the crushing chamber should a sudden disruption in plant power cause a shut-down of the cone crusher.

The socket assembly has been redesigned to improve sealing, which has optimised functionality and manufacturability by reducing the machining setups of the socket and seal rings. The Weir Minerals comminution team has also redesigned the countershaft assembly to remove welding and machining, while simultaneously improving venting and the dust seal.

The most seamless integration

The Trio® TC84XR crusher, like the range of TP series cone crushers, can be fitted with ESCO® wear parts, designed with superior ESCO® alloys, they can be custom designed based on your specific requirements. With over 100 years of casting expertise and in-house engineering and metallurgy, ESCO transforms what was already a robust machine into one that, in the toughest conditions, is unsurpassed.

“This is really exciting for our customers, as they now have a real choice,” says Matthies. “The combination of our TC and TP series allows us to have an honest conversation with our customers on the options available to them and make a technological recommendation which truly meets their needs.”

Replacing existing live-shaft style machines on site with the Trio® TC84XR crusher is now a straightforward process because it has very similar dimensions and is a comparable weight to its live-shaft predecessors. And because it produces the same product, downstream changes aren’t required, which isn’t the case when replacing a live-shaft style machine with a fixed-shaft style machine.

In other words, there is no need to re-design existing circuits.

All Trio® equipment is supported by the Weir Minerals unmatched global service centre network – with over 160 facilities worldwide.
