McLanahan’s Extensive Crusher Line
Aggregate operations looking for crushing equipment need to look no further than McLanahan Corporation. An extensive line of both primary and secondary crushers are available for a variety of applications.
McLanahan’s Universal Jaw Crusher was first patented in the United States as an overhead eccentric, single-toggle jaw crusher in 1906. It has since earned a reputation as a hard rock crusher and is suitable for the toughest, most abrasive material including granites and basalts. The Universal Jaw Crusher is typically capable of a 6 to 1 ratio of reduction when used as a primary crusher. Available in many model sizes, each crusher is designed with a deep crushing chamber for optimum nip, as well as a steep toggle angle for maximum crushing force. The heavy-duty pitman and shaft arrangement offers field-proven reliability and extreme durability.
Also available is the Universal H-Series Jaw Crusher that features adjust-on-the-fly technology. This technology provides hydraulic clearing when needed, allows an operator to make adjustments while continuing operation and automatically resets when tramp iron passes through the crusher.
Primary Impact Crushers
Currently McLanahan offers five lines of horizontal shaft impactors. They are available in multiple sizes to suit your specific crushing application. The first is the New Holland-style primary impact breaker and the MaxCap Primary. These provide a solution to reduce quarry shot and ROM materials at rates exceeding 2,000 tph. McLanahan also offers VersaCap P-Series Impactors for heightened portability as a primary crusher. The VersaCap R-Series is also designed to accept large top size in highly friable materials, and will allow for single crusher reduction to 1-1/2” minus product. For limestone and similar materials, the NGS Impact Crusher is offered as a secondary impactor, which is capable of producing construction grade aggregates or minerals of like size. These five lines of horizontal shaft impactors are available in multiple sizes allowing McLanahan to offer the most appropriate crusher for your specific application.
McLanahan Impact Crushers are found in a wide variety of applications. The most common is processing limestone, but any sedimentary stone and some metamorphic stone are suited for impact crushing. Impactors also operate in manmade materials with similar characteristics as sedimentary stone. Even in some rather abrasive materials, like steel slag and demolition concrete rubble, Impactors are the favored means to attain a repurposed and value-added product. In quarry operations, the use of Impactors also provides a means to remove deleterious minerals. If the feed material includes soft stone, the impact force will reduce the soft stone finer than the harder rock. A screening process will then allow the soft deleterious material to pass through and out of the flow to the rest of the plant.
Best of Both Worlds
One of the primary reasons McLanahan Corporation and Anaconda Equipment joined forces in 2019 was for both companies to be able to expand their product offering and global reach. In 2020, Anaconda announced the addition of their unique track-mounted J12 Jaw Crusher and I12 Impact Crushers, which feature McLanahan’s Universal crushers. The J12 Tracked Jaw Crusher is fitted with a 44” (1100mm) x 26” (700mm) direct hydraulic drive Universal Jaw Crusher. The I12 Tracked Impact Crusher is fitted with a fabricated 43” (1090mm) diameter 4-bar rotor on a 45” (1140mm) wide Universal Crusher Impact crusher. The unique part of these two new track crushers is that they are on a generic chassis that allows for the placement of either crushing chamber, giving dealers and customers immense flexibility. The machine can be converted from a Jaw to an Impactor and vice versa in minimal time.
From stationary to portable, McLanahan has a crushing solution for you.
