Sandvik selects Volvo Penta for its new UH450E tertiary crusher

Sandvik Construction has developed a new generation UH450E track-mounted tertiary crusher. The choice of engine power fell on a Volvo Penta TAD1651GE.

Following market demands and special requests from customers, Sandvik decided to develop a new, more efficient mobile tertiary crusher with an innovative structure of the unit which would guarantee high screening performance. This new unit now fills a gap in the Sandvik range of crushers and has become a productive unit of highest quality ballast end products and a number of new effective characteristics.

The new Sandvik UH450E track-mounted tertiary crusher is an effective and economical solution to customer demands. Unlike previous product generations, the UH450E is electrically powered. The process is powered by a Volvo Penta power pack model TAD1651GE power generation engine installed in a soundproof container. Compared with previous models, this much-requested feature improves the energy efficiency of the unit. Low fuel consumption, uptime and the good reputation of Volvo Penta engines were Sandvik’s main reasons for selecting a Volvo Penta engine to the new UH450E crusher.

Volvo Penta’s TAD1651GE engine offers 505 kVA, prime power, and 556 kVA, standby power, at 1,500 rpm. The engine provides low maintenance and fuel-consumption costs for the end users. The engine meets Stage IIIA/Tier 3 emission legislation which provides an environmentally conscious choice.

In 2011, Volvo Penta and Sandvik Mining and Construction AB signed a cooperation agreement with the goal to enhance the long-term competitiveness of Sandvik’s products. This project is yet another step in this long-term partnership.
