CRUSHER MAINTENANCE 70 E&MJ • JUNE 2018 ply or rebuild the following parts: a new hopper assembly, reconditioned spider with CMS Cepcor parts, top-shell (including wear pats), main shaft assembly (including wear parts), new eccentric assembly, pinion shaft assem- bly, reconditioned hydroset assembled with CMS Cepcor parts, new dust collar assembly, reconditioned bottom shell, and a support frame with guards and a new motor. CMS Cepcor said the entire rebuild and conversion process was completed in accordance with its Lloyd's Register ISO quality system, which included the full assembly of the crusher at the Coalville facility prior to shipping. All of this had to be managed to meet the mine's challenging deadline for expansion of their pro- cessing circuit. Standing more than 5 meters tall once assembled and weighing more than 35,000 kg, the crusher has an im- posing presence for a secondary cone crusher. With extensive expertise in rebuilding a wide range of worn components used in crushing equipment, CMS Cepcor said it can offer these services to convert any of the following models from Hydrocone type to Superior type (or vice-versa) using off-the-shelf stock components. Concaves Engineered for Better Wear When it comes to selecting concave alloys, Columbia Steel sug- gests using the hardest alloy that will withstand the specific impacts for the gyratory crushing application. They said concave selection depends on the compressive strength, toughness and friability of the material being crushed. For example, crushing some tough materials demands work-hardening manganese steel. If there is insufficient impacts to cause the surface to work harder, the same liners used for an abrasive, friable ore may wear quickly.
