Sandvik has released a new mobile impact crusher designed for the quarrying, recycling and contractor segments in response to customer research – the QI353.
This mid-size impactor is the first of Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens’ new third generation 3-series products.
“The Sandvik QI353 features a ground-up new mid-size track platform and custom Prisec impact crusher,” read a Sandvik press statement.
“The QI353 is the most versatile, mid-sized mobile impactor available today, designed to provide more uptime than any other.”
Sandvik’s new automated control system features Optik for an intuitive user experience. With easy navigation and troubleshooting capabilities, operators can be afforded more time for productivity and efficiency.
The QI353 can process up to 400 tonnes per hour of material, with a new feed hopper featuring curved heavy-duty sides for greater capacities.
“At the core of the QI353 is a new mid-size Prisec impact crusher, which boasts the largest feed opening (1170mm x 730mm) and largest rotor diameter (1150mm) in its class, for higher capacity and greater energy efficiency,” read the Sandvik statement.
A larger pre-screen improves ease of fines removal and overall throughput while reducing wear and maintenance duties.
For efficiency and optimisation, the QI353 has been designed to consume less energy. According to Sandvik’s publicity, the QI353’s double-deck pre-screen ensures maximum scalping capability and prevents any undersize material passing through the impactor. This maximises crusher throughput, reduces wear costs and energy consumption. The machine requires 40 per cent less hydraulic oil per service and benefits from extended hydraulic oil replacement intervals.
When combined, it is estimated that up to 64 per cent less hydraulic oil will be consumed over 10,000 hours of machine usage (subject to oil sampling).
