Leading crushing equipment specialist Kleemann, part of the German Wirtgen Group, says it has launched the Mobicat MC 110(i) EVO2, a new-generation mobile jaw crushing plant which represents a further development of its tried-and-tested predecessor, offering users groundbreaking technologies for optimising all areas of a typical workday.
During the development of the MC 110(i) EVO2, Kleemann says it has concentrated on the requirements of demolition and building companies, contractor crushers and quarry operators. With an hourly output of up to 400 tonnes, the new mobile jaw crusher meets the requirements in the medium output range and delivers an impressive performance in a wide variety of quarry and recycling applications, where the emphasis is on effective coarse crushing.
“During the further development of the MC 110(i) EVO2, engineers at Kleemann in the main German factory in Göppingen focused on optimum transportability and a fast start-up,” a spokesman for Kleemann points out. “The transport height was reduced by 20 cm to 3.40 m. Relocation is now possible with simplified transport by means of semi low-loaders. The start-up procedure itself takes only around 10 minutes and includes set-up times for flaps, belts and feed hopper.”
A special highlight of the Mobicat MC 110(i) EVO2 is said to be a new effective two-stage overload system, which effectively prevents blockages and material bridging that can lead to unwanted downtimes.
“If uncrushable material enters the crushing process, the CSS (closed side setting) opens two times faster than with the predecessor plant or, as an option, even up to 40x faster. This increases the availability and thus the overall output. Once again, Kleemann demonstrates its competence here with innovative solutions for crushing plants,” the spokesman remarks.
Kleemann has also further developed Spective, setting the standards for user interfaces in the sector even higher. This digital operating concept has an intuitive structure and revolutionises plant operation with its extensive features, he says. The 12-inch touch panel has been optimised with regard to user guidance and visualisation. Furthermore, new components such as a radio remote control and a small radio remote control have been integrated in the Spective world. The new digital solution Spective Connect sends all important plant data to the smartphone.
In the new Mobicat MC 110(i) EVO2, Kleemann has integrated a series of new technologies and improvements. The Continuous Feed System (CFS) guarantees a continuous crusher feed and thus increases daily output by up to 10 per cent. The independent double-deck prescreen effectively separates fines before they reach the crushing process.
“This increases the total plant throughput and is gentle, for example, on downstream cone crushers in the second crushing stage. Improved feed behaviour is guaranteed on the one hand by the extra-long articulated crusher jaw, whereas a flattened transition to the crushing chamber makes an optimum material flow possible. The accessibility for fast, safe and convenient maintenance has also been optimised,” he points out.
With its innovative technical solutions, Kleemann concentrates on energy efficiency in all of its new and further developments. The improved diesel-direct drive concept is characterised by the economic use of fuel, which minimises operating costs. The power fan ensures an increased cooling capacity, operates only when required and reduces fuel consumption. With its forward-looking, innovative technologies, the company not only wants to take economic aspects into consideration but also to set standards with regard to sustainability, the spokesman concludes.
