Sandvik brings automation and connectivity elements to 800i series cone crushers

Sandvik is connecting its 800i series cone crushers with the latest Automation and Connective System, ACS-c 5 as it looks to continue a design philosophy based on evolution of parts, materials and technologies to improve the reliability, availability and productivity customers rely on.

“The upgraded 800i crushers with new ACS-c 5 are a natural next step in setting the bar for crushing,” Javier Valdeavellano, Lifecycle Manager 800i cone crushers, said. “Their ideal combination of high crushing forces, reliability and simplicity make them easier to operate, manage, maintain and service – leading to productivity and uptime gains that are game changers for operational performance.”

The crushers combine robust mechanical design with powerful automation to better support diverse operational roles, Sandvik says. Having access to operational insights, combined with simplicity and reliability, ensure the team’s ability to run a smooth operation while reaching their targets.

Sandvik 800i crushers are designed from the ground up to maximise tonnage of the desired end product. By selecting the right chamber configuration and setting the crusher program for the automation system, operators can simply start crushing.

Sandvik said: “Simplicity of mechanical design is key to maximum reliability and availability. Sandvik 800i crushers have evolved with new mechanical and automation advantages that simplify service and troubleshooting, improve safety, and optimise performance while minimising downtime.”

Upgraded 800i crushers target installed inefficiency in operating mines, as well as in greenfields. For example, in flowsheets including three-stage crushing and conventional grinding, assisting SAG/AG circuits with pebble crushing, and optimising particle size distribution for lump ores and heap leach applications. The 800i crushers are also suitable in high pressure grinding roll circuits. They crush more and deliver finer particle sizes to the downstream processes, according to Sandvik.

800i crushers are ready to be connected to the SAM by Sandvik cloud-based digital assistant, the company’s evolving data capture and analysis service supporting operational excellence in crushing and screening plants.

Ali Jumaa, Digital Solution Specialist at Sandvik, said: “SAM collects information from all your connected Sandvik equipment to provide a complete overview of your entire operation. Look at the status of your connected equipment, communicate across teams, view alerts and notifications, proactively order spare parts and much more. The new SAM mobile app for iOS and Android allows you to have access to crusher data and insights in your pocket.”
