McLanahan’s Expanded Line of Jaw Crushers

In January 2012, McLanahan Corporation acquired Universal Engineering Corp. of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This addition to the company gave McLanahan a new line of equipment to supplement their existing line of rugged, reliable equipment for the aggregate industry. The Universal line of equipment included a wide range of crushers, feeders and screens, including the Jaw Crusher.

The McLanahan Universal Jaw Crusher is an overhead eccentric Jaw Crusher that continuously reduces the rock as it passes through the crushing chamber. A sharp primary blow from the top of the jaws reduces material instantly, often to spec size. Secondary crushing action at the bottom of the jaw further reduces any remaining oversized material. During all this, the force feeding action is moving material through the crusher at high rates, clearing the jaws for the feed. This results in more spec material at a lower cost.

Additionally, the Jaw Crusher is available as the H-Series Jaw Crusher, which offers “Adjust-on-the-Fly” technology. These new Jaw Crushers feature longer stroke length and steeper toggle angles, which provide an aggressive nip angle and consistent crushing throughout the entire chamber. With true adjust-on-the-fly capability, it offers discharge adjustment at the touch of a finger, along with hydraulic clearing, and automatic tramp iron relief with auto-reset.

Jaw Crusher Design Features:

  • Jaw openings are measured from inside the wear plates, providing a larger crushing chamber for greater reduction and overall capacities.
  • Rigid one-piece fabricated base frame is reinforced for durability and strength.
  • The massive cast steel pitman is heavily reinforced and finely machined to provide the ability to absorb the shock loads.
  • Large, balanced flywheels supply continuous driving force to the crushing action.
  • Replacement key wedges and heel plates secure the stationary jaw plate and prevent wear on the sides of the crusher base.
