World’s biggest gyratory crusher makes first appearance at Bauma

Vania Goncalves 10 May 2016 GLOBAL EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY

ThyssenKrupp launched its biggest gyratory crusher, which the company says is the world’s largest, at Bauma in April.

The German-based engineering, construction and service provider welcomed visitors to the 220sq m booth with numerous 3D models and a virtual stimulation of the brand-new gyratory crusher.

The crusher’s throughput can go up to 14,000t/h, 30% higher than the previous version, and has a driving rate of 1,500kw. It is also much lighter than its predecessor, despite being 130 inches in diameter.

These changes are expected to increase its performance at a lower weight.

Other products shown by ThyssenKrupp at the trade show included the modernized and standardised cone crushers, RollSizers, and the Barracuda and Mine Shark compact bucket wheel excavators.
