KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens Release Drop-In Carbides for VSI

Kpi Jci Drop In Carbides

Drop-In carbides are now available for all models of vertical shaft impactors (VSI) from Kolberg-Pioneer, Inc. (KPI).

The new industry-standard drop-in carbide wear parts will significantly decrease downtime required for service and maintenance.

“We place a huge priority on the ease and quickness of maintenance on all of our products,” says Tim Harms, product manager for crushing and screening products. “We understand that every second spent down drains valuable profits from our customers. The new carbides cut replacement time to around 20% of what it is with other solutions.”

The drop-in carbides can be retrofitted into existing VSI crushers from KPI.
