Cemco offers comprehensive VSI crusher course

By |  March 12, 2014

A two-day course that teaches aggregate, rock and mineral mine operators and plant managers the physics of processing materials with vertical shaft impact (VSI) crushers will be offered at Cemco Inc. May 15 and 16.

“The goal for anyone in this industry is to reduce operating costs and improve the bottom line,” says Cemco President Neil Hise. “We want to teach people how to do that with VSI crushers so they can be successful.”

The company, which is located in Belen, N.M., has more than 50 years experience designing and manufacturing a full line of TURBO VSI crushers. Hise and other experts at the company will teach students about the four types of VSI crushers and how each can affect production rates, product quality and profits in specific applications. Students also will learn about the physics of processing materials with VSI crushers and every aspect of production, from engineering to welding.

The classes will highlight topics that are relevant to operators and plant managers’ daily use of the machines, according to the company. These include lessons on how to adjust the machines’ revolutions-per-minute settings for certain materials to achieve the best possible gradation and efficiency, as well as how to measure horsepower consumption and determine the appropriate levels for certain applications.

Operators and plant managers who attend the class also will get tips on how to reduce wear costs and downtime, increase efficiency and boost profits, as well as learn about best practices for installation, maintenance and safety. They’ll see how the units are assembled and how the internal components are balanced.

As part of the course, students can test their own material in one of Cemco’s full-size test crushers, which deliver more accurate production rates than what can be achieved with smaller lab crushers used at other manufacturers’ facilities, the company says.
