Osborn Double Toggle jpg: The Osborn double-toggle jaw crusher
Johannesburg-based bulk materials handling and minerals processing company Osborn, has netted an export order to Kazakhstan, for a double-toggle jaw crusher to be supplied to Kazchrome, one of the world's largest chrome exporters.
Marketing director Martin Botha says this is a significant order for Osborn, and represents inroads the company is making into the booming ferrochrome industry in this region. "This order was secured through our pro-active distributor in Russia, who is working with alternate end users, as opposed to just aggregate producers. With the aggregate sector facing a world-wide slump, we are capitalizing on the massive opportunities in the ferrochrome industry in countries like Kazakhstan, Russia and the Ukraine, where we have orders in the pipeline.
"This is the machine of choice for hard and highly abrasive materials, like ferro metals. With the top of the hinged swing jaw almost perpendicular to the crushing chamber, high compression is achieved by the linear stroke of the toggle movement, thus minimising wear on the jaw lines," Botha says.
This jaw crusher boasts a production capacity over 300 t/hour, ferrochrome compressive strength over 600 MPa and an excellent nip angle. It features a fabricated main frame and swing jaw, and reversible jaw dies for maximum wear.
