|In March 2014, McLanahan Corporation introduced two new crushing solutions to help producers do more than ever before in today’s tough market place. Both the re-engineered jaw crusher and newly introduced cone crusher are designed as safer, simpler and smarter processing solutions. These two pieces of equipment help producers be more efficient, more productive and more profitable.
Re-Engineered Jaw Crusher Offers Higher Capacities With Same Footprint
After purchasing Universal Engineering in 2013, McLanahan Corporation began a total redesign of the jaw crusher. For the past two years, McLanahan has collaborated with customers to fully understand their needs when it comes to primary crushing and to deliver profound changes in capabilities and performance.
The result is a jaw crusher that gives producers a higher performance primary crushing solution than has ever been available. This design meets today’s challenges and helps producers do even more at the primary crushing stage.
The Freedom Series line of jaw crushers maintains the same physical and power footprint as other styles of crushers, while increasing crushing capacity by 15 percent. That means the 44×50 size can produce what a 50×60 from another manufacturer would typically produce. The Freedom Series also delivers maximum value in a primary crushing station for a greenfield site as it’s designed to make operation the lowest cost per ton.
McLanahan has engineered its Freedom Series to be safer, simpler and smarter than competitive crushers:
Producers who need to do more by building or expanding an existing greenfield project or who are concerned about safety and cost should contact McLanahan for more information on the Freedom Series Jaw Crusher.
Cone Crusher Line Adds To McLanahan Product Offerings
Available in a variety of sizes, McLanahan cone crushers are capable of secondary, tertiary and quaternary crushing. Just like other McLanahan equipment, this line of cone crushers is meant to provide a safer, simpler and smarter solution for producers.
Features that make this cone crusher safer include: top-down maintenance; safe unblocking – no need to dig out when stalled; simply press a button to open and restart when fully opened; hydraulic overload does not damage the machine within the travel of the cylinders.
Simplicity is assured by design features such as: all-roller bearing design; avoiding dilution of the finished product with poor shaped material; excellent particle shape potential; simple hydraulic controls; and easy manganese changes.
When compared to conventional compression crushing, this type of layered particle attrition is a smarter way to crush.
