The importance of the sand making machine in the sand production line is self-evident. It plays an important role. When the sand making line is in progress, the sand making machine has problems, just like people lose in the normal life. Oxygen, life can not continue, and the sand production line is also the same, so there are problems with the sand making machine, we have to be calm, look for professionals to view and repair, the following Shanghai ZENITH introduces several frequently occurring problems and solutions.
1. The bearing load of the sand making machine is too large: check the load. Under the correct load conditions, control is within a reasonable range.
2, the sand machine bearing torque load of the enemy invasion, inflow: improved rust seals, downtime. Improved surface finish for paired rolling parts. The dark side is shown, the dark surface has a slight abrasion depth of 5-10M micro-cracks and the small opening fractures are installed from the surface inward over a wide range. Improved sealing device.
3. Improper lubricant: Use a lubricant of appropriate viscosity to improve lubrication. The surface finish of the sanding machine bearing paired rolling parts is poor. Foreign matter enters the lubricant. Choose the right lubricant.
4. The bearing clearance is not suitable. The bearing housing is of poor precision and the rigidity of the bearing housing is uneven: check the accuracy of the shaft and bearing housing. Check the gap.
5, sand making machine bearing shaft rust, erosion, wear and indentation points check the accuracy of the shaft and housing. The inner ring of the ball bearing load of the ball press rotates, and the rolling fatigue of the raceway surface of the outer ring or the rolling surface is flaky. The so-called card injury produces a slight burn on the sliding surface that summarizes the damage caused by surface damage. The surface roughness caused by the lubricating oil is poor. Stripping the lubricant is not appropriate, improving the lubricant and lubrication methods.
cb|GeSHi-mod / Crusher method for reducing energy consumption
« Last post by xiaoxiao on May 22, 2019, 05:13:10 AM »

The crusher is an important equipment in mining. The Crusher Machine is divided into a hammer crusher, a jaw crusher, a counter crusher, and an impact crusher. For such a variety of crushers, improving efficiency, reducing energy consumption, and increasing market competitiveness are key. Here are some ways in which the crusher can reduce energy consumption.
1. The bulk material in the crusher meets the requirements of breakability, and the material strength should be within the high strength that the crusher can handle.
2. In the process of crushing, the non-crushed material such as iron blocks should be prevented from entering the crushing chamber.
3. In the crushing production line, the screening equipment is reasonably installed, and the broken materials are separated in time to avoid repeated operations.
4. Improve the stress of the components of the equipment, give full play to the function of laminating and crushing in the crushing process, and ensure the uniformity of the strength of the feeding materials in the production process.
5. The laminating and crushing method can achieve the energy-saving purpose of the crushing equipment. In order to greatly improve the energy utilization rate of the crusher, the conditions for laminating the crushed feedstock need to be met. Studies have shown that when the bulk material is in the 6-10 layers, the energy saving and consumption reduction of the equipment is obvious.
6. Try to make the crusher close to the material supply layer of the plugging layer, and achieve greater energy saving and consumption reduction.

Maybe there will be more after that Julio Urias Jersey , but maybe there won’t."Links are here:Here’s a headline to stop your heart: “Twins’ Joe Mauer enters the final week of his ... season”Seth Stohs of Twins Daily also wrote about the potential final week of the Mauer era, and if it would be better or worse for Mauer to announce if Sunday really will be his final game. What do you think? I can’t really take it either way.The FanSided Phillies site thinks Mauer’s possible retirement makes the Twins a good match to take Carlos Santana off their hands, which is a take about seven inches from the midday sun.Speaking of trades, Last Word on Baseball recently revisited the Johan Santana trade, and guess who they think won the trade? Go on, guess!An employee at Comerica Park was arrested after a video came out of him spitting on food, which makes me never want to pay an absurd amount of money for ballpark food ever again.In case you were wondering, old friend ByungHo Park is doing well back in South Korea, hitting his 40th PARK BANG of the season a few days ago. DENVER — As a result of being forced to alter their rotation , the Colorado Rockies will start Chad Bettis on Tuesday in what will become a bullpen game against the Philadelphia Phillies.In the opener of a four-game series Monday, the Rockies (85-70) pounded the Phillies 10-1 for their fourth straight win and handed the Phillies (78-78) their season-high tying fifth straight loss.The Rockies are a half-game behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the race for the second NL wild-card spot are 1 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. Article continues below ...Shortstop Trevor Story returned to the Rockies lineup for the first time since he suffered right elbow inflammation last Monday and went 2-for-5 with two doubles. Story has 80 extra-base hits and became the fourth NL shortstop to reach that mark joining Jimmy Rollins (88) and Hanley Ramirez (81) in 2007 and Ernie Banks (82 in 1955, 81 in 1958 and 80 in 1960).“We’re full throttle right now,” Story said. “It’s a great position to be in. These games really do matter. We’re not where we want to be, but we feel like we will be in a few days.”Jon Gray, who supposed to start on seven days’ rest Tuesday, instead started on Monday and worked seven innings when left-hander Tyler Anderson was scratched from his scheduled start due to shoulder soreness.Bettis (5-2, 5.18) last started on Aug. 12 and was then moved to the bullpen where he has made six appearances totaling 8 1/3 innings. Bettis has worked in low-leverage situations and will be pitching for the first time since Sept. 13 when he worked one inning and threw five pitches.Rockies manager Bud Black said he expects Bettis to throw between 30 and 50 pitches. He threw 30 pitches in 1 2/3 innings on Sept. 9.Bettis is 2-0, 1.93 in six games (four starts) against the Phillies Chris Taylor Jersey , whom he last faced in 2016. The Phillies have been in a major tailspin since mid-August. They’ve lost 16 of 22 games this month and are back to .500 for the first time since April 10.Vince Velasquez (9-11, 4.59) will start for the Phillies. He’s 2-0, 3.95 in five starts against the Rockies and 1-0, 3.27 in two starts at Coors Field.The right-handed Velasquez has been far more effective against right-handed hitters, limiting them to a .204 average and .598 OPS in 309 plate appearances. Lefties are hitting .282 with a .870 OPS against Velasquez in 300 plate appearances.In his last start Thursday at Atlanta, Velasquez wasn’t involved in the decision in Philadelphia’s 8-3 loss. He gave up five hits and three runs in three innings. Velasquez has not gone more than four innings in each of his past three starts and is 0-1, 12.00 in those outings, allowing 16 hits and 12 runs in nine innings.Velasquez threw 73 pitches in four innings Sept. 9 at the New York Mets, 44 pitches in two innings against Miami on Sept. 15 and 57 in three innings in his last start. The Phillies are very analytically inclined , but manager Gabe Kapler said Velasquez’s recent short outings are performance-related and not based on any metrics.“What I’ve shared with all of our starters and this is also somewhat true for our relievers is if you are the best option, all things considered, to get the next hitter or three hitters out, you will go back out,” Kapler said. “And so, for Vince, when he’s the best version of Vince, he’s hard to take out of a game. I literally have to think about reasons why to take him out. I’m not putting any artificial limitations on Vince.”

Minnesota will use the “opener” strategy with its pitchers for the first time this season when left-handed reliever Gabriel Moya is expected to start for the Twins against the Texas Rangers on Sunday Rollie Fingers Jersey , following a practice began in May by Tampa Bay and utilized by a handful of other major league teams this year.Right-hander Zack Littell will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester to serve as what Minnesota manager Paul Molitor has dubbed the Twins’ “primary pitcher” after Moya.The Rangers will counter with left-hander Yohander Mendez (0-1, 14.73 ERA) as their starter in the rubber game of the series at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.Article continues below ...Texas hit four homers to beat Minnesota 7-4 on Saturday to snap a five-game losing streak. Rookie Ronald Guzman hit a three-run homer while Nomar Marzara, Adrian Beltre and Rougned Odor hit solo homers.The Twins have been utilizing the “opener” strategy for months at both the Double-A and Triple-A levels. Minnesota decided to push back right-hander Kyle Gibson’s start to Monday in Houston to try the strategy because the Rangers have a left-handed top of their batting order.The “opener” is employed to keep the game’s primary pitcher from facing the top of the lineup early and to be limited to two times through the order.“You don’t want to do it on a whim,” Twins manager Paul Molitor told “There’s always going to be a risk, and then you try to decide in the game when it’s worthwhile to try to find out if this is something that’s going to be helpful to help your team win. You’re looking for an advantage.”The Rangers activated pitcher Bartolo Colon off the disabled list Saturday, but then scratched him from Sunday’s start against the Twins because of a stomach virus. Colon hasn’t pitched since Aug. 20 because of stiffness in his back. The 45-year-old is a free agent after this season.The 23-year-old Mendez is set to be recalled Sunday to make his second start and third appearance of 2018. He has never faced Minnesota.Mendez is being brought back to the big leagues for the first time since June 19, when he was demoted to Class A after violating team rules in Kansas City.“He took the challenges with the right attitude, went back down, and he’s going to get an opportunity to come back up tomorrow and start for us ,” Texas manager Jeff Banister said of Mendez.The Rangers are satisfied that Mendez has done everything asked of him since the demotion.“Reports I got were that he worked his rear end off, physically and mentally, and took all the challenges and met all of them, even when they were a little bit tough,” Banister said. “The thing that I like about our coaching staff and this organization is that things like that happen. (But if) you go do your work, you’re given that opportunity to clean that slate, go do what you need to do.”Mendez exited his last start for Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday at home against Memphis after two innings when he was struck on his left arm by a batted ball. He is expected to be fully healthy for Sunday’s start. Harrison is expected to be the team’s everyday second baseman."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Tigers AnalysisDetroit Tigers Prospect NotebookDetroit Tigers Game ThreadsDetroit Tigers NewsDetroit Tigers PodcastsMLB Trade RumorsDetroit Tigers NewsTigers sign Josh Harrison to one-year deal, per reportNew,252commentsHarrison is expected to be the team’s everyday second baseman.ESTShareTweetShareShareTigers sign Josh Harrison to one-year deal, per reportBenny Sieu-USA TODAY SportsThe Detroit Tigers have signed former Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Josh Harrison pending physical Dave Henderson Jersey , according to a report from The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal. Financial details of the deal are not yet available, but Harrison is expected to be the team’s every day second baseman.Throughout the offseason, Niko Goodrum has been presumed to be the Tigers’ everyday second baseman in 2019. With the signing of Harrison, however, Goodrum will likely return to being the team’s go-to utility player this season. It remains to be seen what this acquisition will mean for Tigers second base prospect Dawel Lugo, acquired in the J.D. Martinez trade in August 2017, not to mention other infielders like Ronny Rodriguez, Gordon Beckham, and Brandon Dixon.While Harrison only played 97 games in 2018, he was a cornerstone in the Pirates infield in his eight seasons in Pittsburgh Dennis Eckersley Jersey , especially as the team’s everyday second baseman from 2014 to 2018. Harrison’s best season came in 2014, when he posted 4.8 fWAR, but his second-best season — a 2.8 fWAR 2017 campaign — came only two years ago. He is a career .277/.317/.408 hitter, and has been worth 11.2 fWAR in his career. Last season’s .250/.293/.363 performance (a 78 wRC+) was Harrison’s worst since 2012, though an early hand injury may have affected him throughout the year.Unfortunately, the strongest memory most Tigers fans will have of Harrison is not a happy one. Harrison’s ninth-inning single on May 18, 2012 spoiled what would have been the third no-hitter of Justin Verlander’s career.Here’s hoping for some similarly pesky at-bats from Harrison in 2019.

Robertson Bryce Harper Jersey , 33, has been a high-end workhorse out of the Yankees bullpen for the last decade."The Angels, interested in most starting pitchers who have signed this offseason, are interested in another pitcher: RP David Robertson. Jon Morosi had the news: It may not be surprising that the Angels are interested in relievers. Perhaps more interesting is Robertson’s interest in closing games with the Angels, a team that may have that opportunity available. Robertson, once the Yankees closer, lost that role as the Yankees acquired Aroldis Chapman with Dellin Betances dabbling, too. Robertson’s value stems from both his performance and his durability. He has thrown 60 or more innings over each of the last nine years, with his lowest FIP over that time checking in at 3.58 in 2014. Among relievers who have thrown over 300 innings over the last six seasons, Robertson is the fifth-most valuable by fWAR (9.3) with the eighth-most innings pitched (394.1 IP) and the seventh-highest strikeout rate (11.94 K/9). Velocity is a proven predictor of success and in that regard, Robertson has held up well. The longtime Yankee threw slightly harder in 2018 than the year prior, with his cutter (thrown 41.6% of the time) seeing a 0.7 mph uptick and his curveball (thrown 45.8% of the time) experiencing an even greater 1.5 mph increase, per Pitch Info. The question Stephen Strasburg Jersey , then, comes to concerning price. Heading into free agency, I modeled the Angels to spend $28.5 million, assuming a $191M payroll. Given their additions and subtractions thus far this winter, the Angels have about $13.2 million left to spend this season. Given the Angels’ payroll situation, it looks unlikely that they will be able to sign Robertson in addition to Yasmani Grandal or Yusei Kikuchi. BOSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros proved last October they can win at Fenway Park.With another postseason clash possibly coming next month, the Astros are showing they haven’t lost their touch.Alex Bregman hit his 30th home run, Charlie Morton returned from the disabled list with five solid innings and the Astros beat the Boston Red Sox 5-3 on Saturday for their seventh straight win.“We play excellent on the road and I’m proud of our guys for coming into this environment and continuing to play good,” manager AJ Hinch said.Houston won the first two legs of the three-game rematch of last year’s AL Division Series. The defending World Series champion Astros go for a sweep Sunday night at Fenway, where the major league-leading Red Sox had won their last 10 series at home. Boston has only been swept once this season, in a three-game set against Tampa Bay in late August.“I think it’s great that we got off to a good start here, but when the clock strikes midnight tonight it don’t matter,” Bregman said. “I think this team is worried about the next pitch and that’s one of the reasons why we’re good.”Martin Maldonado also homered for Houston and Morton (14-3) delivered a few hours after being activated from the DL.Morton , who missed his last start with discomfort in his right shoulder, allowed two runs and seven hits, striking out three and walking two. He allowed a run and three hits in the first inning, but Boston didn’t score again until Xander Bogaerts‘ solo homer in the fifth.Roberto Osuna took over in the ninth and got his 15th save despite allowing a run. Osuna got out of a jam when J.D. Martinez grounded into a double play.The Red Sox were 3 for 13 with runners in scoring position after going 1 for 9 in the opener.“It felt like we had traffic in both games and we haven’t been able to cash in,” manager Alex Cora said. “They made some pitches too — you’ve got to give them credit.”Eduardo Rodriguez (12-4) pitched 3 1/3 innings. Houston tagged him for five runs and six hits, including solo homers by Bregman and Maldonado.Tyler White hit an RBI triple and scored on Jake Marisnick’s sacrifice fly in the third, when a pair of runs put Houston up for good.Bregman made it 3-1 in the fourth with his towering shot that bounced off a sign above the Green Monster, and Maldonado led off the fourth with his ninth of the season.Bogaerts, who went 3 for 4 with two RBIs, gave Boston a 1-0 lead in the first on a single after back-to-back singles by Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi.Rodriguez was pulled after walking Springer with one out in the fourth. Maldonado led off the inning with a homer to left-center, the second in two innings off Rodriguez.ALEX THE GREATThe 24-year-old Bregman became the first Astros player to hit 30 homers in a season before age 25. He has reached base in 35 consecutive games and leads the majors with 79 extra-base hits.“He’s at the top of his game as of right now but he’s going to get better,” Hinch said. “He loves baseball. I’ve never seen anybody that loves baseball more than him. He’s kind of what a baseball player is supposed to be like.”LAST CHANCEThe Red Sox were a swing away from walking off with a win. After getting one run against Osuna in the ninth, Martinez — who has 39 homers and 117 RBIs — was up with runners at first and third with one out.Martinez hit a grounder to short that started a routine double play Anthony Rendon Jersey , ending hopes of a comeback.“That’s one of the good things when you play here and give yourself a chance, good things can happen,” Bogaerts said. “We had obviously one of our best players at the plate right there and he didn’t come through, but nine out of 10 times he will.”TRAINER’S ROOMAstros: RHP Lance McCullers Jr. (strained right forearm) threw 30 pitches during a bullpen sessions. McCullers, who’s been out since leaving a start early on Aug. 4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, said he’s getting closer to returning. “I still have a couple more boxes to check before we start getting into games, but this was a big step for me,” he said.Red Sox: RHP Matt Barnes is out indefinitely with inflammation in his left hip. Barnes, who last pitched Monday against Atlanta, said he didn’t want to risk aggravating his hip during the stretch run.UP NEXTAstros: LHP Dallas Keuchel (11-10, 3.46) has won his last three starts.Red Sox: RHP Rick Porcello (16-7, 4.20) held the Astros to two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings while getting the win on June 3 at Houston.

Somebody’s going to have to pitch for these Orioles. One of those somebodies will be Dan Straily."The Orioles added a starting pitcher to the 2019 picture on their Friday off day Chris Owings Jersey , agreeing to terms on a contract with free agent Dan Straily. The agreement was first reported by MLB Daily Dish’s Andersen Pickard and later confirmed by mainstream national reporters like Ken Rosenthal. SiriusXM host Craig Mish reported that the deal will pay Straily $575,000 with an additional $200,000 bonus if Straily is traded.Straily, who turned 30 this past December, was released by the Marlins towards the end of spring training, with the team avoiding payment of his full 2019 salary by releasing him when they did. Orioles fans may recognize this move as what the team did to Miguel Gonzalez at the end of spring training in 2016. Straily was due a $5 million salary negotiated through the arbitration process. The Marlins cut him loose before the season began and owed only $1.21 million instead.MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported last week that Straily was weighing multiple offers. It is tough to believe that anyone would choose the Orioles over another team, but perhaps the Orioles were the only ones offering a rotation job to Straily. The 6’2” righty has been in MLB since 2012 and has pitched in 142 games since then, with a career 4.23 ERA.Over the past three years, pitching for the Reds and Marlins, Straily started 87 games while pitching to a 4.03 ERA, just shy of league average for a pitcher according to the ERA+ stat on Baseball Reference. A different metric, Fielding Independent Pitching, puts Straily at 4.83, suggesting his ERA may have been either luck or defense-aided.In his career to date, Straily has been an extreme fly ball pitcher. Fangraphs data indicates that Straily got ground balls just 32.1% of the time last season. Not surprisingly, he’s allowed a ton of homers in the process, on a pace of about one home run allowed per six innings pitched. That’s not super exciting, but Straily does tend to average six innings pitched per start , so for an Orioles team that’s used an opener twice in the first seven games, that could be just what they’re looking for. Straily could basically provide what the Orioles hoped that aforementioned opener, Nate Karns, might provide when they signed him.Straily has held his velocity well, averaging 90.4mph on his fastball last year, close to his career average. That’s a weak fastball for a right-handed pitcher, though Straily has made it work up to this point in his career. writer Joe Trezza notes that Straily was in the 70th percentile for fastball spin rate and 80th percentile for curveball spin rate last season. That’ll get a guy on the Elias radar.Will the signing work out? That depends on how you want to define success. If your metric is, “Straily pitches something like what an unbiased observer might call ‘good’ in an Orioles uniform,” then probably not. If you instead prefer to view the signing as, “The chances are lessened that Mike Wright will start games for the 2019 Orioles,” it’s already a victory.Since Straily did get in nearly a full spring of work with the Marlins before they released him, there shouldn’t be the same late signing poor performance risk that has affected some other pitchers, including last year when the Orioles signed Alex Cobb very late in spring training. He just has to come to Baltimore and face American League East lineups instead of National League onesPresumably, this sets up the Orioles to have a rotation of: Cobb, Dylan Bundy, Andrew Cashner, David Hess, Straily. That’s three guys who are 30 or older. GM Mike Elias may be trying to build the Orioles rotation of the future Curt Schilling Jersey , but it’s not Baltimore where he’s building it.There is nothing at all exciting about a rotation that maybe manages to hold to around a 4.50 ERA, except for this: Last year’s Orioles starters had a combined 5.48 ERA, and the year before that, they combined for a 5.70 ERA. Cheap veteran mediocrity is the kind of thing that might keep games from being unwatchable while the exciting players are being acquired and/or developedon the farm. And hey, if Straily’s looking good come July and a contender needs rotation help, maybe Elias can add to the farm that way, by using him as a trade piece.According to Pickard, the corresponding move for this signing is that Rule 5 super-utility man Drew Jackson has been designated for assignment. Tough week for the Rule 5 guys, but carrying two or three is a challenge for any roster, even one that isn’t expected to contend.UPDATE 6PM: The Orioles confirmed the roster move. Dan Straily has been signed to a one-year contract. Drew Jackson was designated for assignment. Straily will wear #53 with the Orioles.Elias delivered a statement about the moves and his thought process behind them to Orioles reporters: GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds begin their search for a center fielder this weekend when they open spring training play. They have some intriguing options to replace Billy Hamilton, including the rare combination of a reliever who also plays the outfield.Hamilton, who was among the NL’s top defensive center fielders, struggled to hit and has signed with the Royals. Right fielder Scott Schebler is the leading candidate to move to center, where he played 16 games last season, but first-year manager David Bell is exploring some other options. He could try rookie Nick Senzel at the spot, or let newcomers Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp get some time there.He’s also getting reliever Michael Lorenzen ready to both pitch and play center field during spring training games, an unusual arrangement that has required changing his daily workout routine.Lorenzen was accustomed to it at Cal State Fullerton , where he played center and sometimes closed games. The Reds drafted him as a pitcher in 2013. He has lobbied for a dual role in the major leagues.“Just pitching doesn’t seem natural to me,” Lorenzen said.Bell wants Lorenzen to get ready to pitch during the first half of camp, then will use him in the outfield in the later games and see what happens.“We will have him pitch an inning and stay in the game (in the outfield),” Bell said. “It’s exciting. I have to slow myself down. I think it’s cool that he’s preparing himself the way he is.”Instead of doing conditioning work with the other pitchers, Lorenzen will be working out with the outfielders more often.“We’ve come up with a pretty good plan,” Lorenzen said. “It’s them trusting that I’m a good enough athlete to maybe not do all the (pitchers’) conditioning. Running down balls in the outfield is conditioning.”Bell’s other intriguing option is Senzel, who played third base at Tennessee. The Reds had him work out in the outfield in the offseason, getting the 23-year-old ready to try a new position.“It is a challenging position,” Senzel said “You’re covering a lot of ground. You have to cover the gaps.”Bell thinks that Senzel’s speed will give him good range in the outfield. The challenge will be learning the nuances of the position. One of Senzel’s biggest challenges will be learning to communicate with the other outfielders when the ball’s in the air, something he’s never done in his career.“I’m going to be learning it in the big leagues,” he said. “I think that puts a more challenging aspect on it.”GRAY SCRATCHEDSonny Gray was scratched from his planned start against the Indians on Saturday because of a sore pitching elbow. He expects to resume throwing next week and Tanner Roark, acquired from Washington, will start in his place.“It is nothing I’m overly worried about. I’ve dealt with this in the past,” Gray said Friday. “I’ll start throwing in a couple of days. I wanted to go out there and throw the first game of spring but it was everyone’s decision not to push it.”Gray, a 29-year-old right-hander, was acquired from the New York Yankees last month and agreed to a $38 million, four-year contract with the Reds.
