Jaw Crusher has Low Profile, Robust Construction

Telsmith’s new Hydra-Jaw Model H2550 has been specifically designed for improved productivity when used as part of a mobile crusher plant. The H2550 features a hydraulic toggle system designed around a heavy-duty hydraulic cylinder customengineered for crushing applications. The FEA-designed H2550 is a low-profile unit with foot mounts located at mid level and a sculpted main frame which reduces overall weight. The crusher features a 25-in. x 50-in. feed opening, along with interchangeable and reversible jaw dies; replaceable toggle ends; and an impact plate that protects the pitman. Grease lines are plumbed to a central distribution point for quick maintenance access. According to the company, the unit’s innovative hydraulic adjustment, relief and clearing systems eliminate costly downtime and prevent component damage, while also protecting workers from the risks typically associated with the operation and maintenance of older jaw crusher models. The hydraulic overload relief system prevents crusher damage and resulting difficult maintenance procedures by opening the crusher when internal forces become too high, allowing tramp metal or other noncrushable material to pass, and protecting the unit against costly component failure. After relief, the system automatically returns the crusher to the previous setting for continued crushing. Hydraulic chamber clearing allows the operator to safely and easily clear the crusher, allowing it to start up again in as little as 15 minutes. The hydraulics will then ensure that any material remaining in the chamber is crushed to prevent oversized material from reaching the product belt.
