New Jaw & Cone Crushing Solutions from McLanahan

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
Since being first introduced in 1906 by Universal Engineering Corp., the jaw crusher design has remained pretty much the same over the last century – until now.

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:

  • Safety lock pins and hydraulic assist for wear parts change-out makes maintenance safer.
  • McLanahan engineers designed a simpler way to adjust close-side settings and provide tramp iron relief. Hydraulic rams are isolated from crushing action, allowing longer life and full automation, while virtually eliminating toggle migration.
  • The attack angle and crushing stroke pattern are engineered smarter to increase capacity up to 15 percent while minimizing wear on the jaw dies.

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
McLanahan Corporation strives to provide its customers with a complete selection of processing equipment, which is why the company is proud to introduce its newest equipment line – cone crushers.

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.
