FLSmidth New Raptor™ Cone Crusher

September 28, 2010

The new Raptor™ XL600, from FLSmidth Excel LLC, joins the Raptor Cone Crusher line for medium- to high-tonnage aggregate and mining operations. The XL600 design is for quarries needing a large secondary cone crusher with maximum throughout capacity that approaches 1,000 TPH. It handles feed sizes up to 14 inches (360 mm) and provides better product shape for higher yields of salable product.

The XL600 has a 600 hp motor designed to operate and remain mechanically sound at lower eccentric speeds. The crusher speed can be selected to maximize throughput, size reduction, product shape or product yield. The large 65-inch (1.65 m) crushing head uses the same eccentric motion as Excel’s other Raptor cone crushers, with a high pivot point and large crushing stroke.

The XL600 can be installed to replace cone crushers with a 59-inch (1.5 m) head diameter or larger without major modifications to foundations or feed arrangements, allowing producers to increase their production capacity without major plant renovations.
