Cedarapids® has a Cone for Every Application

Cedarapids®, a Terex® Minerals Processing Systems (MPS) brand, is very proud to introduce a new range of cone crushers to our current impressive cone range. The new TG Series will be a Bronze Bushing Spider Bearing Cone. This new series of cones will complement our current market leading Cedarapids MVPX Series (Screw Type Cone) and the Cedarapids TC Series (Floating Bowl Cone) which will give us the opportunity to offer the most versatile and comprehensive cone range in the industry! Terex MPS will now take a further step ahead of all other cone manufacturers in the market place, offering a solution for every cone crushing application requirement while meeting the application needs of our customers with the best possible product quality and productivity.

the TG Series, MVP Series and TC Series

Wayne van Antwerpen, Crusher Technology Product Manager, said “The new range of TG Spider Bearing cones, being offered in both the large feed Secondary and the “all-rounder” Tertiary configuration, will put us in a complete class of our own in the industry with no other OEM able to offer such a diverse and extensive cone crusher portfolio. Terex has been tremendously successful with our roller bearing cones, namely the Cedarapids MVPX and the Cedarapids TC cones, offering our customers all the benefits of roller bearing technology. With the inclusion of bronze bushing technology, we can now open the door to the versatility that bronze bushings bring to the table: for example, the ability to quickly and easily alter the eccentric throw of the cone, on site, simply by rotating the eccentric bushing. No expensive conversions and costly parts.”

The new Spider Bearing range will consist of 4 models focused on the Aggregate and Recycle industries, namely the TG120 (120hp), TG220 (220hp), TG320 (320hp) and TG420 (420hp) respectively. Each model is available in 2 versions, the TG (Tertiary) and TGS (Secondary). The TG style can be run in a secondary, tertiary and a quaternary position; the TGS models, which can take an approximately 75% larger feed, are perfect for a secondary position or even a primary in a controlled feed sand & gravel application. There will also be 2 larger models available for large capacity mining and quarrying applications, namely the TG820 (820hp) & the TG1020 (1020hp).

The Spider Bearing Cone Difference
The new TG Series spider bearing cones provide nominal maximum feed sizes and applied power similar to current Terex cone offerings, but the numerous eccentric throw options and liner configurations allow for increased application versatility. The TGS Series models utilize the same base mount as their Tertiary version counterparts and operate in the same horsepower range. They have fewer linear configurations and options of eccentric throw compared to the TG series, but these models offer a great advantage over the other styles of crushers. For example, a 200hp Secondary version Spider Bearing cone can have a similar output performance to that of other styles of 300-400hp cones and a maximum feed size similar to that of other styles of 400-500hp cones.

Choosing the Right Cone for Your Application
When it comes to the three main styles of cone crushers in the market, namely the Floating Bowl Cone, the Screw Bowl Cone and the Floating Shaft Cone, there is no one style that is solely and uniquely associated with a specific application, rather, they can all work but some are more suited than others. Depending on the type of material being processed and desired output in terms of tonnage or specification, customers have the opportunity to select any one of the three styles of cones from one single OEM, Terex MPS.

Wayne van Antwerpen, Group Crusher Technology Product Manager for Terex MP, talks us through the various cone crushers and their overall individual suitability for various applications, “We wanted to be in a position to offer a solution for every cone crushing application requirement while meeting the application needs of our customers with the best possible product quality and productivity. With the addition of the TG Series Cones to our cone crusher portfolio, we are now able to do that.”

The Floating Bowl Cone, which is represented by the Cedarapids TC Series, is ideally suited to most mining and quarrying applications, especially catering to the contractor clientele, from a secondary down to a quaternary position. The cone design performs consistently in a secondary position with an unscalped all-in-feed. This helps promote excellent shaped products through attrition crushing.”

The Screw Bowl Cone, which is represented by the Cedarapids MVP Series offering, is also ideally suited to mining and quarrying applications, but according to Wayne, “due to the fact that this style of cone offers the large tramp iron stroke clearance, it would be the better choice when looking for a cone in a recycle type application where there is the possibility of smaller metal contaminants.” This type of cone is also well suited to high tonnage applications, and for those where large reduction ratios are required, fine/sand products are to be made, or that require strict product shape and grading requirements. The Screw Bowl Cones can work in secondary, tertiary and quaternary positions.

The Floating Shaft (Spider Bearing) Cone, represented by the newly launched Cedarapids TG Cones, is also ideal for mining & quarrying applications, with similar characteristics found on the Floating Bowl cone. The large feed secondary TGS version of the new cone, which can accept a feed size up to 75% bigger than its Fine version, allows it the unique ability to be positioned in a control fed primary position for sand and gravel applications. Speaking on the spider bearing difference offered by this range of cones, Wayne explains, “The Bronze Bushed TG Spider Bearing cones fall in-line with the other 2 styles of cones when it comes to applied power and productivity, but with the ability to change the eccentric throw of the cone easily and economically gives it increased application versatility. If a higher yield of a specific-sized product is required, the numerous eccentric throw options can be changed to suit the application requirements.”
