Detailed Description

Twister VSI crushers use two variations of VSI crushing. The first is vertical shaft impact crushing where rock is fed onto a table type rotor which accelerates and then discharges the rock at high speed against steel anvils in the crushing chamber. The impact of the rock against the steel anvils induces fracture and breaks the rock. The second variation is called vertical shaft autogenous (VSA) crushing, where rock is fed into a multi-port rotor which accelerates and then discharges the rock at high speed against a rock filled crushing chamber. The impact of rock on rock induces fracture, breaks and shapes the rock. This unique crushing action provides low wear costs, superior products and high reduction ratios.

The Static Twister AC06 is mounted on a heavy-duty, free standing skid-frame and therefore does not require expensive foundations. Being the smallest machine in the range, it features a three-port modular rotor, 600mm in diameter, suitable to differing abrasive applications with throughput capacities varying from 10tph to 46tph. Additionally, it features a heavy-duty bearing housing, circular shaped outer crushing housing, single electric motor, hydraulic jack crusher housing lifting system and an open discharge chute with three position discharge. For this reason, the Static Twister AC06 is designed for rapid installation and easy integration with the rest the Pilot Crushtec modular range.
