Cemco™ Vertical Shaft Impactor (VSI)
Pioneers of Impact Crushing
In the early 1960’s, after observing shortcomings in existing crusher technology, CEMCO (acquired by Superior in 2023) embarked on a journey to design a better crusher for chips and sand production.
The result was the creation of the modern vertical shaft impact (VSI) crusher, a pioneering design that has stood the test of time with the first unit still operating today!
Today, Superior’s Cemco VSI boasts global usage, persistently processing a wide range of materials in diverse industries.
Precious Metals Recovery
Hydraulic Lid Lifter
Provide quick access for routine inspections and quick and easy maintenance.
Accommodates several rotor and anvil configurations for application flexibility.
Replaceable Rotor Assembly
Pedestal style component is replaceable but can also be rebuilt in your shop.
Adjustable Feed Tube
Allows for external adjustment of the feed tube without opening the crusher.
How Does the Cemco VSI Work?
Feed material drops onto the impeller table or enclosed rotor which, through centrifugal force, throws the material against stationary anvils made up of composite alloys
When the rock impacts the anvils, it shatters along natural stress lines, creating a uniform, cubical product. This method of crushing is simple and economical to operate.
