Initial test results have proven the new Optitooth™ Premium offering to last up to an additional 10 % longer than the standard Optitooth™ offering – in comparison to standard jaw plates. Sandvik Optitooth™ jaw plates were designed primarily to increase wear life for customers, whilst at the same time bringing with it a number of benefits to optimize productivity and lower overall operating costs.
The profile was designed for a higher percentage of the jaw to be utilized resulting in longer wear life and less manganese waste. It was redesigned to make it easier for removal, thereby reducing maintenance time and ultimately downtime, saving time as well as money. The improved profile was designed around the production of a more cubical material and reduction of elongated slab material which can cause blocking issues for secondary cone crushers.

The key benefits of Optitooth™ Premium can be summarized as follows:
Longer wear life: Average output increased by over 30 % per hour and wear life increased upwards of 40 % – in comparison to standard jaw plates
Better fuel economy: In addition to the increased wear performance, customers have seen benefits in relation to fuel economy. The improved transfer of material results in lower engine loading with faster material passage through the crushing chamber. Results have proven a saving of up to 15 % less fuel – in comparison to standard jaw plates
Improved product quality: Improved design allows for better breakage and improved material flow resulting in a more cubical and higher quality product shape
Reduced service time: The unique design makes the plates easier to turn over or replace, saving you time and money
Increased production: All of the above results in increased efficiency and higher productivity by up to 20 % – in comparison to standard jaw plates
A more sustainable solution: Optitooth Premium are manufactured with a 70 % reduction in CO2 emissions, lowering your carbon footprint
Sandvik also has a number of ready-to-order Optitooth™ kits. These have been designed to simplify service and increase maintenance efficiency. Tailor-made they are designed around the natural usage of the wear parts, and offer all components needed with just one part number. All the necessary components are supplied with the kit to keep the crushing chamber operating at optimal performance.
