In a COMBO, two machines to devices are inter-connected so a samples goes through both as one process.
The best example is Rocklabs Boyd-RSD Combo. In this combo, a sample is loaded into a Boyd Crusher. The crushed material falls into a vibrating feeder or onto a conveyor belt, which transport it to an RSD standing alongside the Boyd Crusher. The RSD splits out a portion for pulverising.
COMBOs reduce handling, increase sample output, improve sample quality and reduce costs.
COMBOs are not automated. Settings such as split percentage can be changed manually.
COMBOs are produced in small batches to minimise cost, but there can be some modifications to suit each installation. For example, a Boyd-RSD Combo normally has the RSD on the right of the Boyd but this can be reversed.
The price range of COMBOs is approximately USD10,000 to USD50,000.
