Flexibility key for MGL's Sandvik QJ341
By Lindsay Gale05 June 2014
MGL Demolition, part of the MGL Group, is now using a Sandvik QJ341 jaw crusher to process -75 mm (-3 inch) demolition material on a variety of projects, as required. The flexibility and productivity of the machine is ensured due to its a 1.2 x 0.75 m (4 x 2.5 ft) feed opening, hydraulically adjustable CSS, high reduction ratios, crushing speed and efficiency. Additionally the crusher possesses a reverse crushing action to relieve blockages, plus an automatic central lubrication system.
The QJ341 comes with new features that ensure continuous, uninterrupted crushing and greater operator safety. These include a load control system for the feeder drive, level sensor fitted to the jaw, and speed wheel fitted to the main conveyor. One of the key design changes now sees the main conveyor being fitted with a raise and lower facility for increased magnet clearance together with ease of transportation.
A principal reason for the purchase of the QJ341 comes from MGL Demolition’s materials recycling philosophy and commitment to sustainability - MGL Demolition has adopted the fundamental waste hierarchy of: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Mark Davison, managing director, explained: “one of the distinct advantages of the QJ341 is that due to its inherent transportability from site to site, and manoeuvrability around the site, it is literally able to go direct to the material, and reduce it for reuse on-site. This not only provides material for use straight away, but reduces haulage costs, as well as being environmentally sustainable.” However, should it not be possible to process materials on site then MGL Demolition is able to send materials to its licensed recycling facility located in the North East of England
