Greater fuel efficiency and reduced emissions from QJ341
In order, to meet customer demand for greater levels of efficiency and productivity, we have expanded the choices available on our bestselling QJ341 jaw crusher. This includes the choice of engine, with the QJ341 now being available with the highly fuel efficient, yet powerful, Volvo D11.
With an increasing focus on fuel efficiency and lowering the carbon footprint, we are continually developing solutions which meet our customers’ needs in relation to performance as well as lowering operating costs. Our aim is to help them improve their bottom line and increase profitability.
We know that fuel efficiency is a key factor in the purchasing decision when investing in a mobile crusher. Hence, in order to meet the real needs of our customers, and to help them become more competitive through delivering greater levels of fuel efficiency, the market leading QJ341 jaw crusher is now available with a highly fuel-efficient Volvo engine.
Improved fuel efficiency
The Volvo D11 355 hp / 265 kW Tier 4 Final engine complies with the latest emissions regulations, being designed to improve reliability, minimise cost of operation and lower emissions. The Volvo engine’s unique characteristics and performance produces a maximum torque at a 1260 rpm. This enables the QJ341 to operate and crush as low as 1400 rpm, thereby vastly increasing fuel economy compared to other engines available. Testing in the field has already shown the engine to be 20% more fuel efficient than its competitors.
The Volvo engine QJ341 will come with the same customer-focused features as other models. These include the reliability and high performance of the 1200 x 750 mm / 47” x 30” jaw, hydraulically adjustable jaw setting, and a raise-lower facility on the main conveyor.
A new extended telescopic natural fines conveyor is also available offering customers greater stockpiling ability with a discharge height of 3 meters. This is a new design which is quick and easy to set up.
Other features include:
- User friendly Sandvik PLC control system and colour screen enabling visual data output and control
- Efficient load control system for the feeder drive to ensure continuous, uninterrupted crushing
- Reverse crushing action to crush sticky material or relieve blockages
- Hydraulic drive enabling the crusher to start under load, minimising downtime
- Speed wheel fitted to the main conveyor to prevent the feeder overloading the conveyor, and avoid the need to be “dug out” due to overloading
- Highly efficient hydraulic and electrical control system
This addition to our already bestselling jaw crusher range will strengthen our offering and enable us to deliver solutions which are more specifically tailored to our customers’ needs.
