Maximizing Cone Crusher Performance
Speaker: Seth Wheeler, Territory Sales Manager, Western Canada and U.S. Mountain West, Superior Industries.
Every producer wants peak crushing performance, but not every producer knows how to achieve it. Getting there may require just a few tweaks – or even a total rebuild. To remain at peak levels requires proactive maintenance practices, combined with expert consultation and continuing education. When operations truly maximize cone crusher performance, the perpetual paybacks include lower cost per ton, greater plant uptime, increased production capacities of highly saleable material and reduced maintenance and wear costs.

Speaker: Alex Caruana, National Manager for Canadian Aggregates, Polydeck

This presentation aims to help the Aggregate Operators think of screening as a relatively predictable part of their operation and help stay ahead of any problem units in their screening circuit.
