Superior Industries, Inc., a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, debuted two new cone crushing models at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023. With the well-established Patriot Cone Crusher, Superior now manufactures a Dakota Cone and Endeavor Cone. Each model has its own set of unique features, so aggregate producers get premium performance in a wide variety of applications.
“Instead of having to make a choice, we want to offer our customers a solution,” says Jason Adams, president of Superior. “From one manufacturer, aggregate producers now have three cone crusher options and can pick what’s right for their application, marketplace, and crews.”
The new Dakota Cone Crusher is a roller bearing design, which typically offers the most efficient use of horsepower per ton of crushed rock. Some features include a steel threaded bowl, one piece cast mainframe, a tramp relief system with fewer accumulators, and a hydraulically operated ant-spin system, which eliminates labor-intensive installation of individual gears.
Superior’s new Endeavor Cone is a spider bushing design. Historically, spider bushing cones accept the largest range of feed sizes and are known for simple operation and favorable maintenance. Other features include the strongest shaft style our industry has designed to date, which is supported on a cast top and cast bottom shell; top access chamber, which is safer to access and more simple to maintain; and multiple strokes and liner configurations for increased application flexibility.
With these two additions, Superior’s cone crushing products are capable of high performance in primary, secondary or tertiary applications and within portable or stationary settings. Maximum feed opening is up to 18-inches (450mm) with horsepower ranging from 200-800 (150-600 kW).
