thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions wins further order for gyratory crusher in Australia
- thyssenkrupp supplies Roy Hill iron ore mine in Western Australia
- Third order for a gyratory crusher awarded to thyssenkrupp in Australia within the last 12 months
thyssenkrupp has been awarded a contract to supply a new primary jaw gyratory crusher for the Roy Hill iron ore Mine in Western Australia. Located 340 kilometres south-east of Port Hedland, Roy Hill is a world-class iron ore operation with an integrated mine, rail and port facilities producing 55 million tonnes per annum, with approval to increase to 60 million tonnes.
The new crusher is the first above ground jaw gyratory crusher to be installed in Australia. It will be designed for high performance and cost-effective operation, i.e. low servicing and maintenance costs.
Ben Suda, Head of Sales at thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (Australia): “We are excited and grateful for the opportunity to be supplying Roy Hill with a new primary jaw gyratory crusher. This is the third order for such machine within a short time in Australia. It shows once again the confidence our customers in the country place in crushing equipment from thyssenkrupp.”
The jaw gyratory crusher is characterized by an especially enlarged feed opening. It is normally serrated and, together with the upper part of the mantle, forms the initial crushing zone. The coarsely crushed material is then reduced to the desired product size in the crushing chamber below.
Jaw gyratory crushers can handle much bigger chunks of material than comparable gyratory crushers of the same mantle diameter and feature a higher crushing ratio, with less tendency to become clogged in the feed zone as a result of bridging.
