Powerful, economical and “intelligent”, the UH450E is a revolutionary compact design which combines the reliability of the Sandvik cone crusher with a recirculating conveyor and aggressive screening system.
Sandvik Construction’s UH450E is a world-class track-mounted crushing and screening innovation. It is the ideal economical choice for aggregates contractors looking to achieve the highest quality end products, at maximum production capacity, combined with low operating costs.
Built to customer’s requirements and with the highest quality components, the Sandvik UH450E is reliable and extremely economical to run. With the ability to operate via electrical mains or an onboard diesel generator, it offers one of the most powerful, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly mobile solutions on the market today.
It is truly versatile and can work either as a secondary or tertiary unit. Both the cone and screen come with a choice of crushing chambers and screening media respectively, and with a wide range of options available, it is adaptable to suit many different applications worldwide.
The UH450E has been designed with a pre-screen to optimize production and product quality, with the pre-screen also offering the operator flexibility in directing the flow of material. A pre-determined portion of the flow can be extracted on a side conveyor, be fed to the crusher or by-pass the crusher. The coarse material is fed directly into the Sandvik CH440 cone, which is a well proven design and renowned for its reliability. Material is then fed into the newly developed, highly effective, Sandvik product screen via the recirculating conveyor. This unique design operates via a tension-friction belt and enables excellent feed to the screen. The aggressive double-deck banana-styled screen features a steeper angle at the feed end to accelerate the removal of fines and gentler lower section increases screening accuracy.
The complete process is fully automated, well-balanced and with a high level of “intelligence” on board to maximize production, quality of material and minimize downtime. This includes a level sensor over the crusher chamber to keep the crusher choke fed, and Sandvik’s ASRi - Automatic Setting Regulation - as standard. This is integrated with the intelligent on-board canbus system, ensuring the process is continuously monitored and adjusted, providing optimal and automatically controlled operation. The status of operations is continuously updated and communicated to the operator.
The UH450E also includes the following customer-focused features:
- High production capacity of excellent shaped end product
- Diesel-electric drive for powerful, extremely economical and environmentally friendly operation
- Innovative compact design in operation , transport and quick set-up
- Unique recirculating conveying system providing direct feed to the product screen
- Highly efficient screen with unique Sandvik modular screening media as standard
- Intelligent automated control system to optimize the crushing process
- Excellent fuel economy with a Volvo power pack
- Versatile and capable of working as part of a “process train” or stand-alone unit
The UH450E will receive its global launch at Steinexpo which takes place from 3rd – 6th September.
