Johnson Crushers International (JCI) showcased the Kodiak K500+, its 500 hp, remote-adjust cone crusher at the MINExpo trade show in September 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The K500+ is part of the Kodiak Plus Cone Crusher family, which consists of three other models, the K200+, K300+, and K400+. The K500+ model fills the demand for larger secondary and tertiary cone crushers that are used by high production aggregate producers and mining companies, according to Ian Pendergrass, JCI product development manager.
“The Kodiak Plus product line includes a hybrid cast/fabricated base frame design, an automated control system, a patented liner retention system, patented thread locking ring, anti-spin cone brake, and other additional evolutionary refinements,” Pendergrass said. “The K500+ incorporates these innovations as well, and we are confident in its ability to fill a large need in the current aggregate and mining markets.”
