The Cobra 230R Compact with impact.
EvoQuip compact crushing and screening equipment manufacturer showcased the Cobra 230R at the recent Hillhead exhibition. The Cobra 230R builds on the success of the Cobra 230 successfully launched in 2017.
The Cobra 230R has been on test at Reid Brothers on an abrasive application crushing oversize gravel down to 50mm (2”) crusher run. Commenting on the performance of the compact machine Thomas Gourley, from J Gourley & Son said “The EvoQuip Cobra 230R is a great machine. The control system is simple to operate and set up time was minimal enabling us to be crushing quickly. The ground level access to the engine, hydraulics, service and refueling points, made maintenance easy for the operator. I look forward to working this machine in a different application in our own quarry.”
Matt Dickson, EvoQuip, Product Line Director said, “No matter what line of work you are in, whether it is Construction & Demolition, Asphalt Recycling, Quarrying or Contract Crushing, the Cobra 230R will enhance your profitability. The compact footprint makes the Cobra 230R easy to transport and an ideal machine for working in urban areas.”
The Cobra 230R is a closed circuit version of the Cobra 230 which incorporates a 2.44m x 1.2m (8’ x 4’) post screen that ensures the required product specification is achieved with oversize material either being recirculated back to the crusher or stockpiled. The ability to quickly detach the complete afterscreen system including the oversize conveyor provides the option of either running the machine in standard mode or transporting it separately.
The key design features in the Cobra 230 ensure an optimal material flow through the crushing process. As material moves from the feeder through the impactor onto the product belt each section becomes wider ensuring an unrestricted flow. The excellent under crusher clearance and the short distance from the crusher discharge to the magnet make the Cobra 230R the ideal machine in all applications.
The Cobra 230R uses a fuel efficient and high performing direct drive system to power the impact crusher. This along with the two independent hydraulic controlled aprons allows the operator to optimize the material throughput and reduction whilst ensuring the best fuel efficiency.
