Anaconda Equipment launch the I12-R Impact Crusher
Over the years Anaconda Equipment has proven itself as a reliable partner in the crushing and screening industry. The most recent addition to the crushing division is the all-new Anaconda® I12-R Impact Crusher. The I12-R is the culimination of possibilities when engaging with dealers and end users to determine the features and specifications required for the market.
The I12-R is a mid-sized impact crusher designed to offer operators and contractors excellent reduction of the initial feed material, continuous production and with a consistent product shape. Designed predominately for quarrying and recycling applications this versatile crusher fabricated with a 43’’ (1090mm) diameter 4 bar rotor on a 45’’ (1140mm) wide Universal Crushers Impact Chamber will make light work of any application.
The I12-R is fitted with a large hopper area and an aggressive vibrating pan feeder with a two-tier grizzly section to help facilitate the movement of the feed material towards the Impact Chamber. The grizzly section allows for fines and smaller dirt to be eliminated from entering the chamber by discharging it onto the side dirt conveyor. There is also an option on this model of adding a pre-screen before the chamber which will aid fines removal and therefore reduce unnecessary wear on the chamber which will facilitate lower maintenance costs.
Anaconda only work with strong credible brands that share the same philosophy in terms of both service and aftersales support. This is expressed through the collaboration with Cummins on the engines we use within the Anaconda crushing range. Available in Stage 5 (EU and USA) or Tier 2 (ROW) the Cummins L9 Performance engines offer excellent specifications and emissions levels that are pushed to nearly 0. The new after treatment system utilises SCR and DPF which eliminates Exhaust Gas Recirculation. Removing EGR has made installation and maintenance easier, generated less to cool throughout the engine and allowed for the power and torque to be increased creating a higher machine capability for the I12-R. Improved fuel consumption and low noise emissions also allow the I12-R to work in urban or restricted areas.
The recirculation kit has been designed with the end users’ needs in mind. This is utilised with the addition of a double deck screen box after the crushing chamber feeding into either the auxiliary recirculation conveyor or the tail conveyor to join the finished product. The recirculation screen can also be quickly detached which will then convert the machine to a standard I12 unit.
Anaconda Managing Director, Alistair Forsyth has said, “ The Anaconda I12-R comes outfitted with a 43” x 45” McLanahan Universal Crushers Impact Chamber. With over 100 years of experience installing over 7000 impact chambers worldwide this partnership brings to market a true workhorse of a tracked Impact Crusher with over a century of crushing knowledge and experience. The 14ft stepped deck Vibrating Grizzly Feeder can be fitted with bofar bars, fingers or punch plate, along with a bottom deck mesh to pre-screen the material before it is fed into the crusher chamber. The 4 bar variable speed 43” rotor delivers high performance impact crushing in a variety of applications. The I12-R comes complete with a double deck screenbox that allows for both the top and bottom deck material to be fed back into the returns conveyor to maximize the screening performance or alternatively for the 2nd product to be discharged either to the side of the machine or onto an optional discharge conveyor. “
Anaconda Crushing Engineer, Barry McCullagh added, “The Anaconda I12-R combines the productivity of the super-efficient unique direct drive Universal 45” impact crushing chamber with the versatility of a full screening and recirculating system which allows operators to produce a crushed and screened product with one machine. The combination of the impactor with the high energy screen and recirculating conveyor offers maximum productivity on a small footprint. The return offers the option to recirculate oversize to the hopper or radial out 90 degrees to stockpile material. “
All design aspects are with the concept of creating a reliable, efficient machine with the capability of reaching optimum performance in the given application.
