Our new tow-behind conveyor pairs perfectly with our track-mounted impactor plants--which are the only continuous crushing and tracking impactors on the market--and allows material to be stockpiled on either side of the machine," Heirigs said.
However, as the demand for quality aggregates has increased, Al Mohsen has taken delivery of two further Trakpactor 500 units, a Trakpactor 320 impactor, two Chieftain 2100X screens and a Warrior 2100 heavy-duty scalping screen.
As material travels from the center to the periphery of the discs at high speed, it passes through a path of five intermeshing rows of precision-machined rotating and stationary impactor pins, with the desired tight particle size distribution obtained by controlling the rotor speed.
