Portable offerings anchor Eagle Crusher’s ConExpo showcase

By |  March 27, 2023

Eagle Crusher logoEagle Crusher made a statement earlier this month at ConExpo-Con/Agg, where its new UltraMax 1600X-OC portable impactor plant towered over show visitors in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Eagle Crusher showcased the 1600X-OC alongside its new 8-ft. x 20-ft. screening plant that includes an integrated feed conveyor. The company says the two new plants are designed to be companion pieces.

“They’re designed to be matched together but, obviously, they can be mixed with any of our equipment line,” says Daniel Friedman, vice president of marketing at Eagle Crusher.

As Friedman describes, ConExpo-Con/Agg was a valuable show for Eagle Crusher.

“We have seen tens of thousands of people come through our booth already – many with their heads looking very high as our equipment towers about 30 ft. up,” says Friedman, when visited on third of five show days in Las Vegas. “They’re just in awe of the size of this piece of equipment (the 1600X-OC). We’re really pleased with the serious interest.”

According to Friedman, the typical visitor who walked through the Eagle Crusher booth was eager to learn more about the company’s offerings.

“People are really here to see the new equipment and ready to take their crushing operations to the next level,” he says.

Eagle Crusher’s 1600X-OC features the UM69X impactor, which is the largest Eagle Crusher has available. The impactor features a 69-in. x 51-in. feed opening and a variety of unique features, Friedman says.

“It has a large, sloped feeder, but it is also available with a flat feeder for [a] recycle/concrete application,” he says. “There’s an optional jib crane for ease of removal and flipping of blow bars. We have this new optional hydraulically actuated flop gate to either take your grizzly fines and blend them back into the crush or remove them entirely via the grizzly discharge conveyor.”

According to Friedman, the 1600X-OC is the largest plant Eagle Crusher makes. At ConExpo-Con/Agg, he pointed out that one customer using the plant was crushing 40-in.-minus basalt and “seeing or exceeding 1,000 tph.”

Exhibited next to the portable impactor plant, Eagle Crusher’s new 8-ft. x 20-ft. screening plant has a 60-in.-wide feed conveyor that connects to an 8-ft. x 20-ft. triple-deck, triple-shaft screen made by Deister Machine Co.

“It features two middle- and lower-deck cross conveyors that can be put either direction,” Friedman says. “[It’s the] customer’s choice. It can be changed in the field.”

The screening plant offers users the opportunity to produce a variety of products, he adds.

“Your top deck [for] overs, your mid deck and your bottom deck all have four flop gates, allowing a producer to make whatever product mix they’re looking to create – and not having to mix from a stockpile,” Friedman says. “Or, if they don’t want that, they can just close all the gates, and it acts like any other screening plant.”

The blending gates system fully rolls away from the screen, he adds.

“This allows for easier maintenance of the screen, as well as for replacing the screen block so you’re not digging around having to wedge things in,” Friedman says. “It opens up a lot of space to get in there and maneuver. It’s easier maintenance.”

In addition to the two new plants, Eagle Crusher showcased a 2036 jaw crusher in its ConExpo-Con/Agg booth.

The jaw crusher is the same one Eagle Crusher has manufactured for decades, Friedman says, but the company has advanced its jaw with technology.

“One of the technological advancements we’ve been developing that we did showcase in the 3260 jaw – but is become available for our full range of jaws – is our hydraulic toggle system,” he says.

The system offers users advantages when uncrushables are encountered, Friedman says.

“Once you’ve cleared the uncrushable in the jaw, whether it fell out or you pulled it out, you can get the jaw back up and running in minutes versus days,” he says.
