McCloskey I34R and J35 compact crushers working independently with one loader
Over 70 people from 21 countries attended a McCloskey event demonstrating its crushing, screening and stacking equipment.
The multi-spread demo day was held at King Bros Quarry in County Armagh, Northern Ireland on Thursday 1 November.
The demonstrations were part of events tailored to familiarise both new and established dealers with McCloskey’s latest products.
The attendees were given guided tours to inspect and watch the spreads at work and have the opportunity for questions and answers with McCloskey experts. The event also featured factory tours of the Granville and Killyman facilities. There was also a two-day Dealer Forum held at Clonoe.
For the demonstrations, the equipment was arranged in productive combinations of crushing, screening, and stacking, with one dedicated to showcase the newest compact crushers on the market. Material varied over the three spreads, showing the superior end product delivered in two key applications including demolition material and crushing blasted rock.
The first demonstration featured a J44 jaw crusher, C38 cone crusher, 100’ stacker and an S190 Triple Deck screener. The jaw was fed 600 x 600 mm blasted rock producing output sizes at 76-102 mm (3-4 inch) minus. This was fed into the cone which, due to its high crushing ratio, output high quality material at 24mm minus. The material was then fed to McCloskey’s S190 Triple Deck screener to deliver four products ranging from 22mm+ oversize to 12mm minus fines.
The power of the jaw and cone crushers working in tandem, along with the S190 and a 100’ stacker feeding material from the base of the quarry face to the S190 above allowed dealers to observe the process from beginning to end for aggregate customers.
The second demonstration area featured the J45 jaw crusher feeding crushed aggregate into the rugged and productive R155 reclaimer. The J45 material was fed in at 500 mm minus and output 4-5 inch minus to the screener, which then stockpiled three products ranging from 80mm+ to 30 mm minus fines.
The powerful new compact crushers, the I34R recirculating impact crusher, and the J35 jaw crusher, were showcased in the third demonstration area at King Bros. Quarry. McCloskey says the new crushers are able to nimbly move around tight spaces while crushing, are easily transported site to site, and are suited to a number of applications including aggregates, construction & demolition and recycling.
Kirwan Barr, director of Australian dealer MSC Group, commented: “We thoroughly enjoyed the event. The quarry demo was a perfect showcase of McCloskey equipment in action, particularly the performance of the new compact crushers."
