Other benefits include easy movability from one site to another, a smaller footprint than stationary equipment, and the ability to contract screening and crushing to other sites when the unit is not in use.
For operators with a smaller site, or who are looking for a compact, jaw, cone or impact crusher, McCloskey has a range of product to suit their requirements. A great example is the J35 compact crusher. At less than 2.5m, it is portable enough to be easily moved around a site or moved from site to site. Other key features of the J35 crushers include a powerful 162 KW engine, 890mm x 500mm jaw crusher with a crusher speed of 300rpm, and the ability to track and crush simultaneously.
With innovations such as a remote control 180 degree radial stockpiling conveyor with variable discharge height for maximum stockpiling flexibility, and a solid rubber wheel drive system, it’s no surprise McCloskey is one of the leading Trommel manufacturers in North America, says Aidan Mahony, General Manager of Sales, CablePrice.
“McCloskey products are produced and field-tested to perform across a number of industries, including quarrying, mining, construction and demolition recycling, waste management and recycling, composting, biomass and landscaping. Any industry that requires an end product to be crushed, screened or stockpiled can benefit from McCloskey equipment.”
When it comes to the mobile versus stationary debate, Aidan says there lots of advantages to using McCloskey’s mobile (track mounted) units.
“Mobile units can usually be up and running within an hour of arriving on site. Being mobile also means you can take the unit closer to the coal face, resulting in reduced travel time to get material to the screen, reduced wear and tear on other machines such as wheel loaders, and an overall increase in production capabilities.”
With the largest screening area in their class, McCloskey International S-series and R-series screeners are designed to give customers high production output and durability in demanding conditions. These range from the highly portable S80 screener offering the steepest screen angle of any three-way split screen plant on the market and a Screenbox top deck of 3.05m x 1.3m; up to the 36,500 kg triple-deck S190, featuring adjustable Screenbox angles, making it suitable for a wide range of applications including quarrying, mining, sand and gravel, coal screening, top soil and woodchip. The S190 mixes high productivity with quality, versatility and value.
