The launch of the X38 SBS from Extec provides yet another weapon in the extensive armoury of Extec equipment for aggregate producers world-wide. The design and capacity of the X38 SBS have been specifically adapted to the markets real requirements, and to fully complement, and strengthen, Extec’s existing crusher portfolio.
The X38 SBS makes use of the revolutionary, but successful technology found on its larger brother, the X44 SBS, but is now based around the Telsmith 38SBS cone unit. The cone unit possesses a crushing speed of up to 780 rpm, and this smaller size enables a compact frame design, whilst still providing strength and productivity, that are essential for world-wide quarry applications. The X38’s power source is provided by a CAT C-9 Diesel engine, with an impressive 261kW/350hp performance, enabling a constant and reliable drive. With this excellent power at its disposal even the toughest materials can be processed effectively. The X38’s compact form enables its operation in even the most constrained of environments, and full mobility is ensured via its rugged tracks, and optional transport bogie. The X38, like the X44, comes with an optional re-circulation system to ensure that the end products are of consistent nature. The use of recirculation system, together with a metal detector in the feed hopper, ensures that crushing efficiency is maximised without the need for further crushing stages, whilst the intelligent machine control enables the combination of up to seven Extec machines in one synergised operation. Amongst the many materials the X38 has been designed to crush include Granite, Slate, Coal, Limestone.
