First European sales of Sandvik CH865 cone crusher going to Björkdalsgruvan gold
The first European sale of the new Sandvik CH865 mid-range mining cone crushers will be delivered to the Björkdalsgruvan gold mine in northern Sweden. In January 2015, Sandvik Mining launched two new mid-range mining crushers, the Sandvik CH860 for highcapacity secondary crushing and the Sandvik CH865 for high-reduction tertiary and pebble applications.The Sandvik CH865 replaces a previous crusher and delivers more final product in a tertiary crushing stage application, allowing increased milling throughput. Milling is often a processing bottleneck and the CH865 provides increased size reduction and delivers a more final product (P80) to the mill, thereby allowing the mineto increase mill throughput and improving productivity. It is also more cost effective to increase the crushingplant capacity rather than expanding the milling circuit.“We chose the Sandvik CH865 crusher because it will allow us to increase our crushing circuit productivity without expanding our site infrastructure”, says Mats Lindegren, General Manager at Björkdalsgruvan. “In these challenging times mines are often looking for increased productivity without necessarily expanding their plant. The Sandvik CH860 and Sandvik CH865 are easy to install as replacements to achieve this, as has been proven in the extensive field testing we have performed”, explains Ulf Carlqvist, Business Line Line Manager Crushing & Screening, Sales Area Europe at Sandvik Mining.
