Correct handling pays dividends.

Different tools for MOBICONE cone crushers

In order to receive a constant high material volume from a cone crusher with high final product quality, mobile cone crushing plants should be operated in the optimum range. With KLEEMANN cone crushers, high process reliability is already assured in the factory. Users can additionally optimise the crushing process with the application expertise of KLEEMANN. This starts with the selection and composition of the correct tool, which consists of cone and bowl liner.

For tough tasks: mobile cone crushing plants in the MOBICONE series

As all other KLEEMANN plants, the mobile MOBICONE cone crusher are characterised by a high output, low consumption and a well-thought-out machine concept.

In addition, KLEEMANN subdivides its product portfolio into two lines: EVO and PROThe MOBICONE EVO plants are extremely versatile, easy to transport, have short set-up times and a high machine availability. The MOBICONE PRO crushing plants are ideal for the demanding work in a quarry. For this purpose, they are particularly robust and low-maintenance, very efficient and make pure electric operation by an external power supply possible.

An important common feature of the MOBICONE PRO and EVO Line: the tools of the crushing unit are available in different designs and qualities. The use of the correct tool is the key to a high-quality final product and for an hourly output that is as high as possible.

1. Different crushing tools for selection: the tools of MOBICONE cone crushers
  • Depending on the application, a cone crusher from KLEEMANN delivers high tonnages for road subgrade or high-quality final products for the concrete or asphalt industry.
  • Depending on requirements, the crushing chamber is equipped with different crushing tools. KLEEMANN cone crushers of the EVO and PRO Line can use Standard and Short Head tools.

2. Selection of the correct tool: when is Standard used and when Short Head?
  • The crushing tools must be selected based on the feed size and the desired final product so that the entire wear surface is used and the desired capacity is achieved during the entire lifetime.
  • The Standard crushing tools cover the secondary range with feed sizes up to 240 mm.
  • The Short Head crushing tools cover the tertiary range with feed sizes up to approx. 120 mm.

Note for practical use:

The difference in the crushing stage is defined by the final product. This means: the secondary application with the cone crusher can be defined roughly based on the final products of 25–80 mm. The tertiary application roughly includes all final products <25 mm.

3. The composition is decisive: correct combination of Standard or Short Head
  • The cone and bowl liner must both be of the same variant (Standard or Short Head) and must not be combined with one another.
  • The bowl liners of both versions – Standard and Short Head – are available in three designs: "coarse", "medium" and "fine". Their use is based on the required size of the final product – or, in technical terms, according to the gap setting, "Close Site Setting" (CSS).
  • Depending on the abrasiveness of the crushed material, KLEEMANN also offers different crushing tool qualities: XPERT with a manganese content of 18% or XTRA with 20% manganese.

Tip for practical use:

The following can be recommended as a rough rule of thumb: XPERT for medium-abrasive applications and XTRA for highly abrasive applications, whereby the wear behaviour is very strongly dependent on the material properties, moisture level and the content of fines.

Good to know

How can Standard and Short Head be recognised?

Once the tools are installed, they can no longer be distinguished from one another based on their shape. KLEEMANN therefore uses markings on the cones and bowl liners.

  • Always identified with a marking (in contrast to Short Head)
  • Three notches: "coarse" design
  • Two notches: "medium" design
  • One notch: "fine" design

Short Head
  • Always identified with two markings opposite one another (in contrast to Short Head)
  • Three notches: "coarse" design
  • Two notches: "medium" design
  • One notch: "fine" design

Depending on the size of the cone crusher and the feed material, the following factors are decisive in the selection of the crushing tools:

The feed opening (CFO = Closed Feed Opening)

The minimum gap width (CSS = Closed Side Setting)

Important note

Ask your application expert!

Long-term and constant applications can be analysed in detail and optimised if necessary. KLEEMANN application experts and Customer Support will be glad to advise you and can provide support with installation and removal of the tools.
