Telsmith, Inc., manufacturer of mineral processing equipment, marketed the T400 Portable Cone Crusher Plant at the 2019 AGG1 Expo in Indianapolis, Ind.

Ideal for producers and contractors in mining, aggregates, crushed stone production and recycling applications, the T400 portable cone crusher plant offers quick, safe maintenance access, consistent crushing and easy mobility as the result of direct customer feedback.

The T400 cone is part of the T-Series Cone Crushers line by Telsmith that offers large clearing circuits that are designed to safely and quickly allow uncrushable materials to pass, avoiding costly damage and associated downtime for repairs. The patented anti-spin feature prevents head spin to help extend manganese service life. Like other key components, it's mounted on top of the machine for safe, top-service access.

In addition, the anti-spin operates with pressure lubrication oil, eliminating the need for a gearbox, separate hydraulic circuit and associated maintenance. The use of a single bowl for all liners over its life of operation helps reduce downtime and inventory costs while allowing optimum versatility, flexibility and efficiency in portable crushing applications.

Furthermore, Telsmith Inc. patented hybrid bearing technology within T-Series Cone Crushers provides the ability to crush at lower horsepower from improved lift that helps carry the crushing forces, when compared to roller bearing machines. Engineered to hold up to tough, abrasive aggregate and mining processes, the T-Series cones with hybrid bearings deliver tested productivity, safety and ease of maintenance with maximum uptime.

Another safety feature that comes standard is the diamond plate walkways around crusher, 4-in. toeboards, 42-in. handrails and access ladder for safe ingress and egress.

The T400 cone crusher performance is second to none by supplying 400 horsepower, a 12-in. maximum feed size and throughput capacities ranging from 138 up to 594 mtph allowing for consistent crushing and sizing of materials.

The portable plant is available in a simple open circuit plant or a more intricate closed-circuit plant with a screen and conveyors onboard, which allows for secondary and tertiary crushing stages.

Startup is made simple allowing for operations to begin the crusher within hours. To achieve this, Telsmith designed three simple user-friendly control panels, Soft Start, Motor Start and Off-Plant. The Soft Start UL certified NEMA4 panel consists of a main circuit breaker for the crusher motor soft start. The Motor Starter UL certified NEMA4 panel provides a main circuit breaker, motor starters for plant motors and 4 extra 20HP motor starters for off-plant conveyors. The Off-Plant Panel support stand provides cord grips and 50' wiring from starter panels to on-plant junction box.

Telsmith's TRAC10 Automation feature comes standard on all portable plants.

TRAC10 monitors crusher operations, provides automated calibration and setting controls, and protects the crusher from overload; all to yield greater crushing performance and efficiency. Operators can initiate an automated calibration process via the touch screen monitor, that automatically "zero's-out" and resets to the proper setting. Operators can also modify the crusher setting at any time, even while crushing.

Telsmith engineered and manufactured chassis provide ease of mobility and strength to handle the vibrations of many crushing applications. The T400 portable chassis offers 24 in.x 68 in. WF Main beams, fifth wheel plate, equipment supports and cribbing legs that are easily adjusted for quick setup and mobilization.

Telsmith offers chassis compliant with all 50 states on-highway regulations. The T400 standard chassis includes triple axles and highway towing kit with 25,000# axles, air brakes, walking beam axle support, (12) 11R22.5 tires, mud flaps and lights with reflectors. Total transport weight and dimensions for the standard configuration are 100,000 lbs. and 50 ft. 9 in. L x 11 ft. 11 in. W x 13 ft. 6 in. H.
