Sandvik Rock Processing is introducing its upgraded 800i cone crusher series. A major talking point is the new ACS-c 5 automation and connectivity system, which integrates the capabilities of all of Sandvik’s crusher modules and subsystems into a single automation system.

The upgraded Sandvik 800i cone crusher series is now available globally, effective March 1, 2024, confirms Nils-Peter Ahlqvist, Sales Support Manager, Africa & Latin America – Crushing Division at Sandvik Rock Processing.

“The Sandvik 800i cone crusher range’s combination of high crushing forces, reliability and simplicity make it easier to operate, manage, maintain and service, resulting in productivity and uptime gains that are gamechangers for operational performance,” says Ahlqvist.

The latest Sandvik 800i crushers with new ACS-c 5 combine simple, yet robust mechanical design with powerful user-friendly automation to better support diverse operational roles. The new role-based interaction functionality simplifies the work of operators, maintenance personnel and engineers by offering guidance, access to valuable data and tools for proactive maintenance and optimisation.

The ACS-c 5 automation system guides the operator through alarms and recommended actions, streamlining the decision-making process during alerts and minimising the impact of potential issues.

“Maintenance personnel have access to an improved historical and operational data log, providing a comprehensive overview of the crusher’s performance. The new automation system offers engineers more opportunities to monitor, analyse and optimise the crusher’s performance,” explains Adam Taylor, Business Line Manager Crushing Solutions –  Africa at Sandvik Rock Processing.

With sustainability in mind, the upgraded Sandvik 800i crushers are designed to eliminate inefficiency in operating mines, as well as in greenfields operations. For example, in flowsheets including three-stage crushing and conventional grinding, these crushers assist SAG/AG circuits with pebble-crushing and optimise particle size distribution for lump ores and heap leach applications. The Sandvik 800i crushers are also suitable in high pressure grinding roll (HPGR) circuits. They crush more and deliver finer particle sizes to the downstream processes.

“With the latest 800i crushers, we are able to produce much finer product (down to mill feeds of sub 6 mm) from our crushing and screening circuits, ultimately resulting in improved milling and overall process performance. This translates into less energy consumed and reduced wear in downstream processes. In other words, we allow customers to ‘crush more to grind less’,” says Ahlqvist.

The upgraded Sandvik 800i crushers are ready to be connected to the SAM by Sandvik cloud-based digital assistant. SAM collects information from all connected Sandvik equipment to provide a complete overview of the entire operation. Customers can look at the status of their connected equipment, communicate across teams, view alerts and notifications, pro-actively order spare parts, and much more.

“With the new SAM mobile app for iOS and Android, customers can have an overview of their crushing fleet, monitor equipment data and key parameters, receive alarms from the ACS system directly in their pocket and get recommended actions created to help them solve issues more quickly,” concludes Ahlqvist.
