KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens’ FT400DF features a Kodiak Plus K400+ cone crusher, a track-mounted cone crushing plant designed to deliver efficient material sizing, making it a perfect choice for both mobile and stationary producers who need quick, effortless onsite movement. The Kodiak Plus K400+ Cone Crusher includes a tramp iron relief (TIR) system that utilizes pressure relief valve technology that minimizes crusher overload impact shock loads transmitted to the crusher components, said Gary Heeszel, engineering manager of KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens’ Oregon manufacturing facility.

In addition, the FT400DF features a Digsy control system designed to monitor engine load, hydraulic pressures, cone hopper level, end delivery conveyor load and cone bowl float to protect the plant from overload conditions.

“Our track design team has developed a rugged mobile platform for the K400+ crusher that self-regulates aggregate flow to maximize aggregate production and protect the plant from overload,” Heeszel said. “This gives our operators confidence to run the FT400DF at full production capacity without worry of overloading the plant.”
