A modular mobile jaw crusher is being offered by a new manufacturer to the market. Based in Britain, Crushers UK has designed its track-mounted, single toggle jaw Hercules 1830 machine to be easy to transport and make ready for use. The machine features a crusher opening measuring 800x500mm and can produce stone sizes from 25-100mm, with a maximum throughput of 100tonnes/hour.
The firm's director, Greg Shipley, explained that the electric drive concept is simpler, easier to maintain and more compact. Although Crushers UK is new to the industry as a manufacturer the firm has been involved in supplying crusher components to the sector and has plenty of experience. The components selected, such as the Eriez magnetic separation unit and generator from Advanced Diesels, are all proven units from well recognised suppliers.
Weighing in at 20tonnes the Hercules 1830 features an 800mm wide conveyor with electric drive and can discharge material at up to 2.4m high. The modular layout brings benefits and Shipley said, "You can unbolt the tracks and have it as a static machine."
