Pre-engineering Is Key To Superior’s New Modular Platform Systems

featured-image-fusion-modular-platform-by-superior-industries

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, is excited to offer a new series of modular plants for aggregate crushing, sorting, sizing and washing applications. Known as Fusion™ Modular Platforms, these pre-engineered, ready-to-build systems still allow customization to achieve best performance at each jobsite.

“Our plant designs are scalable and easily expand with a developing customer site,” says Mark Crooks, product manager at Superior Industries. “Producers can quickly expand capabilities as finances allow, application needs change and as their market develops.”

Today, Superior has pre-engineered a series of plant packages and is working to design more for its catalog. Some examples include jaw, cone and impact crushing platforms, horizontal screening platforms with two, three and four deck models, plus a group of traditional washing and modern low water washing platforms.

“Overwhelmingly, our customers said they want scalability and flexibility in these modular offerings,” says Crooks. “Therefore, as we developed our strategy, we ensured flexibility from top to bottom, convenient installation or dismantling and seamless integration with Superior crushing, screening, washing and conveying machinery.”

Fusion Modular Platform systems are pre-engineered for earlier commissioning, more cost-effective than design-build plants, incorporate well into existing plants and utilize creative packaging to limit the number of flatbeds or shipping containers needed for transportation.

Superior Will Debut 11 New Jaw Crusher Models At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

featured-image-liberty-jaw-crusher-by-superior-industries
Liberty Jaw Crusher | Superior Industries

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, will add almost a dozen new models of jaw crushers at booth C31389 during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. It’s one of a dozen new products the company will introduce during the Las Vegas trade show in March.

“We designed this jaw to have an aggressive nip angle,” says Grant Holmes, a crushing engineer at Superior. “This design reduces the possibility of rocks not gripping properly and boiling above the chamber. As long as the rock fits, it’s going to be crushed.”

Other features to look for at CONEXPO-CON/AGG include:

  • Mid-mount base frame design ensures a compact installation, which is ideal for portable and track plant applications.
  • Barrel liner protects the bearings and pitman housing and is uniquely replaceable when worn.
  • Pitman shaft is CNC-machined to improve strength and reliability of the hardest working component of the crusher.
  • Fiberglass drive guard is designed for a single crew member to remove to speed and simplify maintenance.

These new bolted designs have a total capacity range of 110 – 1,595 tons per hour (100 – 1,450 MTPH). Feed openings start at 20″ x 55″ (508×1,397mm) to 59″ x 78″ (1,500 x 2,000mm) with maximum feed sizes up to 47.2″ (1,200mm).

Superior Industries at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

Superior will launch a dozen new products for crushing, screening, washing and conveying applications. Displayed equipment will include the brand new Sentry™ Horizontal Shaft Impact (HSI) crusher, Fusion™ Modular Platform, belt drive Valor® Vertical Shaft Impact (VSI) crusher, bolted model Liberty® Jaw Crusher, Alliance® Low Water Washer and Portable Spirit® Wash Plant. Additional equipment with new features include the Anthem® Inclined Screen, gear drive Valor® Vertical Shaft Impact (VSI) crusher, P500 Patriot® Cone Crusher, Aggredry® Dewatering Washer and TeleStacker® Conveyor. Additionally, aftermarket solutions including new conveyor idlers, pulleys and accessories, plus crushing rotors, cone bushings, cone heads and jaw dies will be displayed alongside a multimedia experience showcasing several turnkey projects completed by the company’s construction management division.

Other specifications unique to the P500 include a head diameter of 59-inches (1,500mm), maximum feed opening of 13.5-inches (343mm) and closed side settings from 3/8 – 2-inches (10-50mm).

Patriot Cone Crusher | Superior Industries

Notable features of the P500 model cone include:

  • Inverted or reverse design of tramp relief cylinders ensures the hydraulic seals are not exposed to contamination during operation.
  • Tramp relief system designed with fewer accumulators for less maintenance. An automatic pressure relief valve means additional protection.
  • Universal crushing chamber design requires no major, time-consuming change-outs when transitioning from secondary to tertiary applications.
  • If loss of clamping pressure, counterclockwise countershaft rotation causes crusher to open rather than turn down, which can cause significant damage.

Superior manufactures its full line of Patriot Cone Crushers in 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600 horsepower models. Each purchase comes with a lifetime warranty to protect the cone’s major components including the adjustment ring, bowl, eccentric, head, mainframe and main shaft.

Brand NEW Application-Specific Seals Will Extend Conveyor Idler Life In Unique Operating Conditions

SpinGuard Idler Seals

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, will revolutionize the conveyor idler market when it introduces a group of application-specific idlers seals at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. They’re one of a dozen new products the company will introduce in booth C31389.

“These next-generation SpinGuard® Idler Seals will offer greater protection in applications known to expose bearings to fugitive material prematurely,” says Paul Schmidgall, the chief engineer of Superior’s conveyor components division. “We tested dozens of seal iterations over more than five years of and we think we have some pretty robust options.”

Superior says it now offers four application-specific conveyor idler seals:

  • SpinGuard Wet Seal: Applications experiencing unsatisfactory idler life due to high moisture. Common conditions include wet processing, frequent washdowns and dredging.
  • SpinGuard Dry Seal: Operations that produce dust near crushing or screening equipment.
  • SpinGuard Low Drag Seal: For conveyor owners concerned about horsepower. Eco-friendly idlers designed with low drag seal for overland or long-distance conveying.
  • SpinGuard Titanium™ Seal: For the most extreme conditions including wet and slurry applications.

Each class of seal will be easily recognized by a unique color:

  • Wet Seals are blue
  • Dry are ivory
  • Low Drag are green
  • Titanium Seal is silver

Superior says lead times for these application-specific idler seals can be equal to their day-to-day, industry-leading production response times.

Horizontal Shaft Impactor Joins Superior’s Growing Group of Crushers

Sentry Horizontal Shaft Impactor (HSI) | Superior Industries

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, plans to debut its brand new Sentry™ Horizontal Shaft Impactor (HSI) at booth C31389 during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. It’s one of a dozen new products the company will introduce during the Las Vegas trade show in March.

Using a high speed impacting force, horizontal shaft impactors encourage stones to break along their natural cleavage lines. This generates cubically-shaped material, which is desirable for many of today’s applications.

Superior’s Sentry HSI is designed with a fully-fabricated open-style rotor, which produces low inertia energy for a lower cost of ownership. In addition, proper spacing inside the crusher’s chamber creates more area for processing larger feed sizes. Owners and operators will safely and easily complete maintenance functions of the HSI’s mainframe components via a hydraulically-controlled opening and closing feature.

Other design elements include commonly-shaped side liners, hydraulically-adjusted curtains, mainframe inspection doors and a replacement upper feed opening. One or two piece blow bars manufactured with two or four rotors are equipped with fixed clamping for best performance in hard rock applications.

Superior defines its new line of Sentry HSI’s by rotor size and has 15 models available for manufacturing. Production capacities range from 90 – 990 tons per hour (80 – 900 MTPH) with maximum feed sizes from 15 – 40 inches (400 – 1,000mm).
