FCB VIF™ crusher

The FCB VIF™ impact crusher is designed for primary and secondary applications for crushing of:

  • Iron ore
  • Phosphates
  • Bauxite
  • Gypsum
  • Aggregates
  • Limestone
  • Clay materials

In primary applications, the crusher accepts blocks over 1 m3 (35 ft3) to obtain a 40 mm (1 1/2 in) product. In secondary application, the 300 mm (12 in) feed size produces a 20 mm (about 3/4 in) product.

FCB Rhodax® 4D

The FCB Rhodax® 4D offers advanced grinding force control with a high reduction ratio (up to 100/1). It can be used in concrete recycling and crushing applications, including:

  • Abrasive materials
  • Ceramics, tiles and fired clay
  • Silica,
  • Ferro-nickel, ferroalloys, ferrochrome
  • Silicon metal
  • Copper, ilmenite and steel slag
  • Diamond and iron ore
  • Phosphates
  • Aggregates
  • Limestone

Long-life wear parts offer significant savings, particularly when grinding hard and abrasive materials.
