MPEX-3850 Heavy Duty Dual Powered Mobile Jaw Crusher


Jaw crushers are operated in quarries, their main application being the processing or crushing of mineral raw materials. The mobile, tracked jaw crusher is distinctive for its uncompromising, heavy-duty design.

MPEX powerful mobile jaw crusher, specialized mining and rock excavation equipment, is designed to deliver increased levels of productivity, while maximizing operator comfort and bottom-line cost efficiency.

The dual powered MPEX-3850 portable jaw crusher offers operators the flexibility to power the plant either by mains electric connection or the onboard genset powerpack configuration. Either power option presents operators with significant power, servicing and maintenance cost savings in direct comparison to a diesel/hydraulic powered plant.

The plant incorporates the robust MPEX-3850 high performance electrically driven single toggle jaw chamber and a heavy duty vibrating grizzly feeder to give optimum production in quarrying, mining, demolition and recycling applications. Additional benefits include rapid set up time, ease of maintenance, high reduction ratio, high output capacity and advanced electronic control system.

Looking ahead: the future of jaw crushers

When asked about where jaw crushers might go in the future, our experts suggested that safety, size, efficiency and fuel consumption would all be factors that will affect development.

Due to increasing fuel cost, changing environmental regulations and process efficiency needs,hybrid, or 100 percent electrically driven tracked crushers, are the future and will replace hydraulic, direct-drive.

Many countries cited continued tightening of environmental standards worldwide that drive the need for the development of alternative power sources - for example, the possibility to connect to external power sources, or development of hybrid technology. Aggregate producers are looking for more cost efficiency and lower cost per ton, so the equipment manufacturers need to provide technologies which decrease operational expenditure, such as crusher kinematics and more durable wear parts.

Due to jobsites becoming more restricted, smaller crushing units may be a key trend moving forward. MPEX introduced a compact crusher line to address the expanding contracting and recycling markets in urban centers. The need for maneuverability in small spaces, and the ease of transport from site to site, is driving the demand for this category. Additionally, the increase of regulatory guidelines and restrictions in the recycling industry will drive the design and development of jaw crushers across multiple applications, including waste and recycling, asphalt and concrete recycling, and construction and demolition.

As we develop mobile crushing to the next levels, MPEX Corporation believes we will see more automation, more efficiency and less downtime due to the systems that are integrated into these machines. The ultimate goal has to be to increase production rates, increase uptime and decrease ownership costs for the customer. This not only comes from the equipment itself, but from an effective support network.
