Sandvik’s CJ200 Series Expands

Wed June 24, 2009 - National Edition

Another jaw crusher in the Sandvik CJ200 series is now available — the CJ208. This is a crusher for customers who do not want to compromise between lightweight and heavy-duty equipment, mobile and stationary applications, and process flexibility and easy operation. The new Sandvik CJ208 is the smallest member of the family.

Sandvik’s CJ200 series offers a combination of lightweight equipment and heavy-duty crushing applications. The optimized crushing chamber provides a high reduction ratio and capacity. The CJ200 series’ wide range of applications also includes the possibility of producing a 0 to 1.5 in. (0 to 4 cm) final product in one crushing stage. Moreover, the CJ200-series crushers are easy to operate and maintain, according to the manufacturer.

The frame of Sandvik’s CJ200 series of jaw crushers is all-welded, making it equally strong in all directions and ensuring durability against shock loads. In turn, this minimizes the risk of mainframe failure, as seen with a bolted design. Furthermore, the design of the deep symmetrical crushing chamber maximizes feed size, capacity and reduction.

The CJ200’s heavy-duty capacity makes it a practical choice for stationary applications. The crusher’s compact, low-weight and easy-to-install design also makes it ideal for use in mobile applications. Its bolted feet enable the Sandvik crusher to be used as a stationary unit with zero degree inclination or on a mobile unit with five-degree inclination.

The Sandvik CJ208 and the other members of the 200 series are available with a range of optional equipment, such as automatic bearing lubrication, feed hopper, intermediate protection plate and a complete drive package, including motor, bracket, pulley, belt and flywheel/belt protection.

The CJ200 series has low energy and operating costs due to its optimized flywheels. For example, the CJ208 model requires only a 74 hp (55 kW) motor to crush the hardest material with the smallest feed openings.
