Barmac® B9100SE™ vertical shaft impact (VSI) crusher

Barmac® B9100SE™ vertical shaft impact (VSI) crusher

For stationary, portable and mobile crushing applications

Barmac® B9100SE™ vertical shaft impact (VSI) crusher is known for producing high-quality cubical end products. It is generally utilized at the last crushing stage when processing rocks, ores, and minerals. Thanks to low operating costs, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI is commonly seen at crushing sites that produce aggregates, sand, material for heap leaching, or pre-grinding and finished industrial minerals products.

Barmac® B9100SE™ vertical shaft impact (VSI) crusher for precise size reduction with low operating costs

Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher is the largest model in Barmac® B Series™ VSI crushers family.

It is an excellent third or fourth stage reduction unit and has proven to be efficient in many demanding crushing operations in construction, industrial minerals, metallic minerals and waste recycling applications.

Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher is available as a stationary, portable or mobile crushing unit.   

Excellent product quality

Like other models in the same family, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher uses rock-on-rock crushing process where the feed material is utilized to crush itself. This autogenous crushing process results in homogenous, cubical-shaped end products that have less moisture.

In addition to rock-on-rock crushing, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher can be equipped with metallic anvils on request. In anvil solution the rock-on-rock cavity ring is replaced with an anvil ring, and the rocks are thrown against metal anvils instead of a rock bed. This improves reduction ratio and enables finer end products, but the downside is slightly higher wear costs since the anvils must be replaced from time to time.

More uptime

Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher is energy efficient. Especially when equipped with the traditional rock-on-rock cavity ring, the crushing process requires less energy since rocks also crush each other.   

In addition, wear rates tend to be lower, which extend the intervals between maintenance and service, resulting in increased uptime.

Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher with an anvil cavity ring calls for maintenance a little more often, but the benefit is more effective size reduction.   

Quick to install and maintain

Whenever service is required, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher has been designed to be easy to maintain.

An automatic lubrication handles the daily greasing of the main shaft.

An access to rotor parts is easy via an inspection door. Maintenance lifting tools, such as a roof lifter and rotor service arm speed up servicing internal workings and rotor changes.

Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher has minimal foundation requirements due to the low static and dynamic forces in operation, which ensures easier installation.

Safe to operate

With Metso IC™ crusher automation, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher can be connected to any plant automation system. This enables centralized control, allowing the operator safely to control and adjust Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher operating parameters according to production needs from a distance.

Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher’s benefits in different applications

Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crushers operate in aggregate and mineral processing installations around the world with an established track record of cost savings, durability and unmatched performance.

Aggregates production

Different quarries often utilize Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crushers since they can produce high quality cubical shaped aggregates that meet all major construction specifications. Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher is particularly successful in producing road-base, top dressing chip, concrete and asphalt aggregates. In these applications, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher can be operated either in open or closed circuit, depending on the types of aggregates and the specifications required.

Manufactured sand production

Accurate shaping capabilities and acceptance of fines make Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher excellent for manufactured sand production. Rock-on-rock crushing ensure low operating costs, and whenever more reduction is needed, or the feed is coarse, the crusher can be equipped with metallic anvils. Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher’s speed is adjustable, so they can also produce very fine end products if required.

Industrial minerals production

With features such as controlled product grading, preferential crushing, low production costs and ability to produce finely graded products, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher can optimize the performance of most industrial mineral processing installations.

In this sector, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crushers are popular as cost-effective fine crushing equipment for the abrasive materials.

For example, the diamond mines have noticed that utilizing Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher simplifies the liberation of diamonds from gangue minerals. In addition, fine crushing cement clinker with Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher is gaining popularity since VSI crushers have proven their ability as cost-effective pre-grinders.

Metallic minerals production

In mining metallic minerals, Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher with high capacity and ability to produce finely graded products such as mill feed, sinter feed or material for heap leach operations, are ideal machines that can replace high-cost, inefficient crushing and milling equipment.

Adding Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher to an existing circuit can save considerably if a plant is looking for increasing production without replacing existing production equipment in a milling circuit.

Waste recycling

Barmac® B9100SE™ VSI crusher can outperform many other equipment in recycling applications. These recycled materials can be waste aggregates or demolition waste, slags, or even glass and other waste products that can be processed and sold.
