When one of Queensland’s newest contract miners sought low-cost solutions for processing raw coking coal, McLanahan Corporation was the first port of call.
Brad Anstess, Coal Applications Specialist, says the Company offers many different crushing configuration options and has been delivering innovation in the Bowen and Surat basins for a long period of time.
“In this instant, we worked directly with the customer to deliver a small footprint, mobile ready solution feeding at around 350 tonnes per hour and sizing 500mm down to 50mm in a single unit,” saus Mr Anstess.
“I recommended the Triple Roll Crusher because it’s a low-cost alternative – something that was critical for the customer.
It’s two crushers in one machine. They are less expensive than two sizers and typically use lower energy per tonne crushed.”
“The Triple Roll Crusher is excellent value for money, it has the ability to achieve a reduction ratio of 6:1 for primary crushing and down to 4:1 in secondary crushing.”
Engineered and designed locally, the McLanahan Triple Roll Crusher was assembled and tested in Newcastle using a purpose-built test bed that allows quad, triple and double roll crushers to be factory tested in the same location as well as Direct Drive Sizers.
Triple and quad roll crushers are commonly used in coal crushing applications across the world with excellent outcomes in both product sizing and long-term reliability. These machines are utilised across Asia, Europe and North America.
“I remember delivering the first Triple Roll coal crusher in the Bowen Basin to one of our great customers back in 2003,” reflected Mr Anstess on the longevity of the McLanahan multi stage crushers.
This is one of many triple roll crushers sold in the region since 2003 and many more triple, quad and double roll crushers have since been delivered into China and Indonesia.
