Sandvik upgrades 800i cone crusher series with new automation and connectivity system

Sandvik has launched its upgraded 800i cone crusher series, which features the new ACS-c 5 automation and connectivity system. This latest series combines simple yet robust mechanical design with user-friendly automation to better support diverse operational roles.

“The upgraded 800i crushers with new ACS-c 5 are a natural next step in setting the bar for crushing. Their ideal combination of high crushing forces, reliability and simplicity make them easier to operate, manage, maintain and service – leading to productivity and uptime gains that are gamechangers for operational performance,” said Javier Valdeavellano, Sandvik lifecycle manager for 800i cone crushers.

Sandvik 800i crushers are designed from the ground up to maximise tonnage of the desired end product. Users can simply select the right chamber configuration, set the crusher programme for the automation system, and start crushing. Over time, these crushers have evolved with new mechanical and automation advantages that simplify service and troubleshooting, improve safety, and optimise performance while minimising downtime.

The upgraded 800i crushers target installed inefficiency in operating mines, as well as in greenfields. For example, in flowsheets including 3-stage crushing and conventional grinding, assisting SAG/AG circuits with pebble crushing, and optimising particle size distribution for lump ores and heap leach applications. The 800i crushers are also suitable in HPGR circuits. They crush more and deliver finer particle sizes to the downstream processes.

The 800i crushers are ready to be connected to the SAM by Sandvik cloud-based digital assistant, the company’s data capture and analysis service supporting operational excellence in crushing and screening plants.

“SAM collects information from all your connected Sandvik equipment to provide a complete overview of your entire operation. Look at the status of your connected equipment, communicate across teams, view alerts and notifications, pro-actively order spare parts and much more,” said Ali Jumaa, Sandvik digital solution specialist. “The new SAM mobile app for iOS and Android allows you to have access to crusher data and insights in your pocket.”
