New Year, new products, the Edge Material handling range has just got bigger. Edge are delighted to unveil its’ newest member of the family; the RS1500. Building from the success of new products launched in 2013 such as the Slayer XL, the MS100 and the 360° Unlimited range, we have no intention of resting on our laurels. Each new product launch has contributed in their own right to our success.
With a number of new R&D projects ongoing; we anticipate further growth in 2014. It is with this in mind that the Edge design team set out to design the most efficient mobile mineral sizing solution available on the market today. Through extensive research, testing and the use of high quality components; we believe that we have been able to deliver on that target.
Innovatively designed, the RS1500 can process a wide range of materials including coal, lignite, bituminous, sub-bituminous hard to handle materials – graphite electrodes to sticky materials, friable materials, soft ores, limestone and limes, salts, glass, fertilizer, recycled concrete and tarmac. It’s robust designed is coupled with high manoeuvrability and small footprint, all of which ensures the RS1500 as being a formidable option for the quarrying and recycling sectors.
Boasting an impressive list of design features that includes a highly efficient hydraulic drive system, tramp metal release, easy selective piece sizing controls, intelligent hydraulic load sensing system and a five function remote control; the RS1500 is packed with the most up to date technology and components.
The full HMI Controlled Panel Interface provides easy fine tuning for accurate application performance. The HMI allows for automatic start / stop operation and provides visual data output such as engine load, individual shaft pressure, hydraulic oil temp and fuel consumption displayed while the machine is still operating.
The unit is powered via a Caterpillar C9 260Kw (350HP) designed to suit Tier IV regulations. The C9 engine offers full torque whilst only consuming 25-30 litres (6-8USg) per hour. The RS1500 has the capacity to process 250 Tonnes per hour (276UST) with a maximum feed size of 400mm.
Material is feed into the RS1500 7m³ (9 square yards) hopper and is carried to the pre-screen via the 1400mm (55") wide heavy duty belt. Full length impact bars prevent sag reducing material roll back and take impact from feeding material, prolonging the life of the conveyor belt. Variable belt speed controls the flow of material to pre-screen. The Feed Hopper boasts a hydraulic sliding function to enable quick transition from transport to operating position.
A single deck, two bearing pre-screen allows fines to by-pass the chamber, increasing processing efficiency and through put. An easily retrofitable optional side conveyor is available to stockpile diverted fines separately.
The Roll-Sizer chamber has the ability to handle wet and sticky material and employs an intelligent load sensing system to prevent overload. The tooth rotor design allows undersize material to pass through the precision designed shafts increasing product through put. The shafts are designed to grab the feed material and reduce it to the desired product size whilst creating the minimum of fines. The RS1500 incorporates an automatic sensing system that protects the roller shafts against tramp metal or trapped material. This vitally reduces maintenance costs and downtime. The chamber houses two variable speed, reversible roller shafts for accurate piece sizing both of which are independently driven and controlled via the HMI Control Panel. Piece sizing is also easily adjusted via the control panel. The feedbox enclosing the chamber not only acts to feed material from the pre-screen into the chamber but also prevent debris and dust from exiting the chamber. Removable plates are provided to gain access to the chamber for maintenance when and as required.
Material is stockpiled via the 1150mm (46") wide, heavy duty ply product conveyor which provides a discharge height of 3560mm (11’8") creating a stockpile volume of 77.5m³ (101 squared yards) or 125 tonnes (138UST). Impact bars underneath the chamber take the impact from processed material prolonging the life of the conveyor belt. The hydraulic folding head section allows for quick transition from transport to operating position.
With Its impressive cubical piece size, minimal fines produced, low power consumption and high tonnage per hour, the EDGE RS1500 is the most sensible option for many applications. Come visit our stand at CONEXPO at Las Vegas from the 4th to the 8th of March in the brand new Platinum Lot #9338 to find out more about the new RS1500 and existing products. With new products in the design process and the ever growing options available we believe that Edge Innovate is staying true to our ethos of "Innovation at Work".
