McCloskey's North American debut
By Lindsay Gale09 February 2015
McCloskey International will use the AGG1 show in Baltimore in March to give its new J45 and J45R mobile jaw crushers their North American debut. According to the company, the J45’s 1.2 x 0.7 m (3.7 x 2.3 ft) jaw that features both level and load sensors ensures the most efficient material handling across applications. The new model joins the redesigned V2 Series jaw crushers coming to the market, including the J40 V2 and the J50 V2.
Also being introduced is the J45R, which allows operators to produce a crushed and screened final product with one machine. Like the J45, the J45R boasts a 4.5 x 2.4 m (14.8 x 7.8 ft) hopper with close to 6.8 cubic metre (240 cubic foot) capacity. The 1.5 x 3 m (5 x 10 ft) screenbox features McCloskey “High Energy” technology, with adjustable speed. Rugged and versatile, both models have undergone rigorous field-testing to ensure the reliability required for the toughest projects around the globe.
“We’ve had the new J Series out with customers in the field for over a year now,” said John O’Neill, Vice-President Sales and Marketing for McCloskey International.” “We based the changes to the design on customer feedback. Once we incorporated their feedback, we sent it back into the field for their assessment. All have come back saying their production has increased substantially, and their processing of materials in a number of formats is even more efficient than before.”
In addition to the change in the cheek plates and flywheel, a steeper nip angle allows for better crushing in the mid and upper chamber sections, and ultimately delivers better jaw die utilization. Combining these enhancements, both the J45 and J45R, says McCloskey have the power and production of much larger crushers in a smaller and more efficient footprint. A faster jaw speed also delivers more production with more material passing through the crushing chamber. The J45 and J45R feature a TEDD panel that is more concise and easier to understand.
