thyssenkrupp brings to Brazil new crushers for aggregate production

The Industrial Solutions business area of thyssenkrupp, one of the leading suppliers of crushing equipment for the minerals, mining and cement industry, is expanding its portfolio of equipment available in Brazil with the launch of Jaw and Kubria® cone crushers. Whether mounted on fixed or mobile structures, these machines combine flexibility and efficiency to the crushing process for producing aggregates. In addition to utilization in quarries and construction, the crushers are available in different models, and can also be used in the mining, cement and recycling industries.

Developed with the latest technology that reflects thyssenkrupp’s more than 200 years’ excellence in engineering, the machines are compact and feature optimized crushing chambers that help to reduce component wear and increase availability, ensuring greater productivity and cost reduction. Jaw crushers are used in the primary stage of crushing plants, while Kubria® crushers are utilized in the secondary, tertiary and quaternary stages. They both have proved their worth over many years under the toughest conditions in hard rock crushing.

The main shaft of Kubria® cone crusher is mounted in an eccentric bearing and driven by a bevel gear with cyclo-palloid spiral teeth, which permits the transmission of high crushing forces while ensuring very smooth running. The hydraulic cylinder beneath the machine serves both to adjust the crusher gap and to protect against overloading of the crusher. Together with the robustness of the overall structure, these features give it high durability and reliability.

thyssenkrupp crushers and screens were recently implemented into the plant flow simulation program “AggFlow”, which allows users to perform all relevant calculations like throughput capacity and particle size distribution of machines and modules. Thereby the software enables the design of complete aggregate or mining plants and assists in the selection of suitable machines for a particular crushing and screening task.

“thyssenkrupp has its own application engineering in Brazil, which develops and sizes complete, fully automated crushing plants for aggregate production with a total capacity of up to 800 TPH per crushing line”, explains Leonardo Caporali, Executive Director for Mining at thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions Brazil, noting that the company also has a service center in Santa Luzia, Minas Gerais State. “This is the most advanced center dedicated to modernizing, renovating and maintaining processing equipment for the cement, mining and energy industries, which is also being adapted for working with the new crusher line for aggregate production”, he concludes.
