Edinburgh, United Kingdom – Crushing is a common step in mineral processing and an optimized design and crusher operation is key to maximizing productivity. This video shows the analysis of the jaw crushing process for different materials (iron ore, limestone and granulite) using EDEM simulation software.

By E. Jones– Functioning crushers are of paramount interest for the production of many mines and quarries. The following article runs through maintenance tasks a user might take to prolong the service life of his crusher. Continue reading If Crusher-Availability counts: Failure to adequately maintain Crushers comes at a high Price

Wolfurt, Austria – The countryside around the village of San Juan Sacatepéquez in south-eastern Guatemala is hilly and forested. Cementos Progreso. had been planning to build a new cement plant there for some time. Among other things, the project required a solution to transport limestone and marl from the crusher to the processing plant. Cementos Progreso opted for Doppelmayr RopeCon as a means to cover the distance of approx. 1.6 km and the vertical rise of almost 200 m. Continue reading Doppelmayr: RopeCon transports Limestone across Treetops in Guatemala
Los Alamitos (CA), United States – The EchoPro® Pulse Radar Solids Level Sensors from Flowline offer reliable and cost-effective non-contact level measurement for difficult applications. These 26 GHz pulse radar sensors work with powders, grains, pellets and aggregates in dusty environments with limited space and varying angles of material repose.
Valby, Denmark – KAZ Minerals in Kazakhstan has selected FLSmidth as their technology partner for a new, 75,000 tonnes per day copper concentrator line at Aktogay. FLSmidth’s scope of supply includes the key machines, installation supervision, commissioning, start-up and ramp-up support. The total order value is more than USD 100 million.
With the development of a completely new type of crusher, the so-called eccentric roll crusher type ERC25-25, thyssenkrupp has achieved a quantum leap in primary crushing. The new crusher features a particularly flat and robust design and high throughputs of up to 3,000 tons per hour, enabling it to process hard rock and ores efficiently and economically in underground mining operations. As the centerpiece of a mobile or semi- mobile system the eccentric roll crusher also enhances cost efficiency in surface mining. In the future, the new series will be supplemented with further models to enable both smaller and higher throughput capacities for different applications.
