Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens has built a new ‘fully electric’ crushing solution based off its CJ412 jaw crusher that, it says, continues to drive the sustainability shift in the crushing and screening industry.
The Sandvik UJ443E is built upon a new ‘fully electric’ track platform and features high quality, reputable componentry throughout, as well as the latest generation Sandvik CJ412 jaw crusher.
Its new modular feed station includes a larger hopper, two feeder options with larger grizzly cassettes and an optional under screen for greater natural fines extraction before crushing, allowing operators to optimise their process flow depending on feed conditions and material, the company says.
The UJ443E is designed for hard and abrasive rock applications, making it ideal for the quarry, mining and contractor segments, the company says.
Aligning with Sandvik’s “make the shift strategy”, the UJ443E has been designed with an increased focus on sustainability, productivity and durability, while retaining the look, feel and value proposition customers’ demand.
The fully electric UJ443E provides customers with up to 30% reduction in fuel consumption, the company says, and up to 30% increase in throughput versus previous generation products.
It features electric final drives and an onboard generator set, meaning it can be operated in a more sustainable way, being powered by either an external electricity supply, HVO or diesel from the onboard genset.
Operating while connected to the external electric source can bring several advantages, including lowering running costs, extending drive train service intervals, reducing time spent refuelling, reducing on-site emissions and lowering noise levels. The fully electric track drives also decrease the use of hydraulic oil on the plant by up to 91%, the company claims.
The UJ443E features a 125 Amp downstream connection which allows customers to operate a downstream plant such as a screener or scalper, providing up to 20% decrease in fuel consumption compared with running separate units.
The unit comes with improved access to maintenance, including new access platform under and a newly designed automatically locking folding hopper sides, that can be operated from ground level. The new automation system with Optik™ intuitive user experience, includes simplified operation controls and total integration with the Sandvik My Fleet telematics solution. Diagnostic support, pre-installed guides for troubleshooting and real-time information allows customers to know exactly how their equipment is being utilised, Sandvik added.
