Excel will be showcasing our Engineered Innovations at this year’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas – March 7-11, 2017. One of our featured products will be the latest addition to our Jack Bolt Tensioning Series of specially designed locking nuts and locking bolts for cone and gyratory crushers – The UltraBolt™ for HP® Series Cone Crushers. Although still in the early stages of first article, the UltraBolt uses the same key features as Excel’s highly successful UltraNut™:
- Ease of installation and removal (for safety and cost reduction)
- Elimination of the torch ring (reduce sacrificial components)
- Protection for the structural components of the locking nut (reduce cost expenditures for the customer)
- Improved dust protection for the threads
Both of these specially designed head nuts and locking bolts ensure precise, uniform preload, and make liner changes faster, easier, and (most important) safer.
Design Engineer Phil Hopping served as lead designer for this project. He states, “With the success of the UltraNut, Excel Engineers simply knew that a bolt was necessary to accompany it. Hopefully, both of these Excel Innovations will be recognized as industry standards, before too long.”
