KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens (KPI-JCI/AMS), Yankton, South Dakota, has unveiled its new track-mounted FT2650 jaw crusher with a prescreen option. The crusher is designed for mobility and to allow producers to make higher-quality premium products, according to the company.

The FT2650 provides a feed opening of 26 inches by 50 inches and production rates through the plant of up to 500 tons per hour. The increased stroke of the Vanguard jaw crusher provides “more compression, more relief, faster throughput and up to 25 percent more capacity,” the company says.

The plant has been designed to be effective in multiple aggregate or recycling crushing applications and allows producers to benefit from low-cost transportation and set-up between job sites as well as convenient on-site mobility, says KPI-JCI.

The patent-pending grizzly prescreen option employs grizzly fingers that vibrate independently, generating higher energy to resist blinding and plugging. A larger open area also results in increased productivity, says KPI-JCI. As well, the grizzly modules are easily interchangeable for flexibility allowing producers to remove a wide array of unwanted fines from production.

“This new design also employs an optional hydraulic tramp iron relief system, which enables adjusting the closed-side-setting on–the-fly while providing overload protection from tramp iron events,” says Ron Griess, KPI-JCI/AMS product manager. “Allowing this convenience for producers allows them to be more successful in their operations by reducing downtime.”

Other options available with the FT2650 include multiple feeder sizes, hydraulic hopper extensions, cross-belt magnet systems and dust suppression systems. More information on the FT2650 is available at
