Austin Powder introduced its new EStar RFID technology, which makes it possible to identify a detonator without physical contact between a logger and detonator. The RFID tech on EStar, Austin Powder’s electronic initiation system, affords blasters greater flexibility on when to log holes, assign detonator timing and test detonators or branch circuit verification. Blasters can choose to assign timing to detonators after holes are loaded and tested for continuity. Austin Powder says its RFID feature is quicker than direct contact logging or other detonator programming methods. With RFID tagging, all required detonator information is still right where it is needed, and the logger display will still show all of the necessary details about the detonator. One logger can tag up to 1,600 detonators.

The latest in Kleemann’s EVO2 generation of crushers – the Mobicat MC 110(i) EVO2 jaw crusher and the Mobicone MCO 90(i) EVO2 cone crusher – were developed with a focus on output, efficiency and flexibility. Kleemann says the mobile plants are frequently used together in the first and second crushing stages due to the joint output level and simple line linking. According to Kleemann, the two crushing plants are perfectly tuned to one another at transport points of material. The jaw crusher has the right amount of power to effectively utilize the cone crusher in the second crushing stage, Kleemann adds.

Extra clearance between decks is now an optional feature of Guardian horizontal screens. According to Superior Industries, maintenance crews appreciate the extra headroom while working inside the screen. Superior has outfitted some of its screens with king-sized bearings, which increase the capacity of the screen. Additionally, the company says it builds one of the market’s only four-deck screens, which offer a five-product split – four end products and one oversize. The four-deck option is available in 6-ft. x 20-ft. and 8-ft. x 20-ft. models. Superior manufactures a dozen Guardian models in two-, three- or four-deck configurations for dry or wet applications.
