HPE Africa’s range of McCloskey crushing and screening equipment, encompasses high capacity, mobile J45 jaw crushers, designed for high production, simple and fast assembly, ease of operation, minimal downtime and low maintenance requirements.
“Our customers are impressed with the simple design of this series, which requires minimal electronics. This means there are fewer problems resulting from dust damage in arduous environments,” states Rasheel Sukdhoe, McCloskey product manager, HPE Africa – exclusive distributors locally, for McCloskey International. “McCloskey crushers have a user-friendly dust-and water-proof control panel, that allows efficient monitoring of pressures, fluid levels and fuel consumption. This minimal, yet effective electronics system, also provides push-button control of the jaw, track and feeder functions. With both level and load sensors, this machine ensures efficient material handling in all applications.
“These J45 jaw crushers have a deep jaw chamber and an aggressive toggle design for high productivity. McCloskey equipment also has considerably more room for maintenance than other brands on the market, making servicing of these machines quick and easy for service staff.”
Heavy-duty McCloskey J45 jaw crushers have a 1 140 mm (45”) x 688 mm (27”) single toggle jaw, ensuring efficient handling of materials in all applications, including tough conditions.
This high-performance crusher also has a heavy-duty bofar grizzly design and pan feeder chutes, with steeper angles, designed to reduce material sticking to the chutes. A high-capacity hopper with 6 m³ capacity, is mounted over a vibrating feeder. The feeder rate can be regulated manually or automatically by a load-sensing jaw. The main conveyor is fitted with heavy-duty skirting, positioned close to ground level, for ease of access and maintenance.
An optional independent pre-screen maximises efficiency of the crusher and delivers the screened product via a side conveyor with a 2.5 m stockpile height.
The machine has a feeder width of 1 064 mm and length of 4 240 mm, with a grizzly section length of 1 325 mm. The conveyor, which offers a stockpile height of 4 065 mm, has a belt width of 1 050 mm, fitted with dust covers for additional protection. Various jaw die options are available which include, but not limited to, multi-tooth, square tooth or corrugated design. An over-band magnet comes standard with the J45, which is used to remove steel prior to material being fed to the secondary crusher.
Other features on the J45 comprise a 261 kW diesel engine, a large feed opening allowing for large feed rock, a heavy-duty feed chute and an ultrasonic level sensor.
HPE Africa’s comprehensive range of McCloskey equipment includes modular and mobile jaw, cone and impact (horizontal and vertical) crushers; trommel and vibrating screeners, stacking conveyors and washing systems. These machines are used in diverse industries, including aggregates, mining, waste management and recycling, construction and demolition, as well as infrastructure, road building and landscaping.
HPE Africa – which is also the exclusive distributor locally for Hyundai Construction Equipment and Soosan hydraulic hammers and quick couplers – provides an essential support service, that encompasses a technical advisory, repair and maintenance facility.
The company, with a large stockholding of parts, has a team of dedicated, trained technicians, who support the McCloskey range, to avoid downtime of equipment.
