Dr. Armin Greune, Head of Standard Machines in the Business Unit Mining Technologies of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions: “The variopactor is designed for use in small and mediumsize quarries and meets our customers‘ key requirements – problem-free, cost-efficient production with reduced downtime.“
The housing, rotor, and entire crushing chamber of the variopactor are symmetrical, so the rotor can be operated in both directions and the direction of rotation can be changed at any time. Using the rotor in both directions ensures the blow bars always operate with a sharp edge and minimizes the need to replace or turn the blow bar. The variopactor is maintenancefriendly; all wear parts are easily accessible and can be replaced quickly.
One of the variopactor‘s key strengths is its modular design. All parameters influencing the product quality, such as rotor speed and apron or grinding path position, can be flexibly adapted to the individual requirements of customers in the minerals industry. With the variopactor‘s hydraulic gap adjustment system, the aprons and grinding paths can be repositioned at the push of a button so the machine can quickly be set up for different product requirements.
Advantages of the new variopactor at a glance:
