ThyssenKrupp Materials Handling (TKMH), a division of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions South Africa, supplies a wide range of robust stationary, semi-mobile and mobile crushers with throughput rates exceeding 4 000 tph to meet primary and secondary crushing requirements.

The Level 4 BEE South African subsidiary of the worldwide operating group ThyssenKrupp Fördertechnik is a specialist manufacturer and supplier of bulk materials handling equipment and plant to the local mining and processing industries for over 50 years. “We offer turnkey solutions, from 2D and 3D CAD design, FEA and DEA, to final commissioning and after sales service, supported by our vast engineering expertise,” says TKMH sales manager, Matthias Göing.

The company’s extensive crusher range includes jaw, mineral sizers, cone, gyratory, jaw gyratory as well as mineral crushers (horizontal and vertical shaft) and hammer mills. “Our crusher expertise extends to design, manufacture, import, assembly, installation, commissioning, manufacture as well as export,” continues Göing.

The range of efficient single-toggle and double-toggle TKMH jaw crushers are ideal for the primary crushing of medium-hard to very hard material such as blasted rock pile. “Depending on the blast method used, these jaw crushers can achieve edge lengths of more than 2 000 mm,” explains Göing, adding that fields of application include quarries, ore mines, recycling plants and gravel works.

In cases where a high-size reduction ratio and cubical stress-free end product are required, such as limestone, gypsum, slag, overburden and aggregate materials, Göing recommends impact crushers. “With an operating range that includes both coarse and fine crushing of medium-hard to hard material, the impact crushers are designed for throughput rates extending to above 4 000 tph and is ideally suited for various materials and applications in quarries and mines.”

According to Göing, the numerous features of the TKMH crusher range offer cost and time saving benefits for rapid return on investment and lower total cost of ownership over the machine’s life time. These include:

  • the robust construction and a best possible and uniform stress distribution ascertained by means of the finite element analysis, extend crusher service life
  • the high throughput rates, thanks to an optimised geometry of the crushing chamber, prevent arching and material build-up
  • automatic or semi-automatic gap adjustment (depending on customer demands) ensures best possible product quality
  • registration of the operating data by a control- and diagnosis system (visual crusher) increases the availability rate and records data for further development of the machines
  • standard or heavy version options ensure smooth adaptation to hardness and compressive strength of the feed material
  • the quick and easy maintenance reduces downtime and optimises productivity.

TKMH capabilities also extend to the supply and installation of ancillary equipment such as structures, chutes and feeders, screens including grisly screens, separators, pit civils and front-ends, cyclones, liners, etc.

“From planning and design; manufacure and delivery to site; on-site commissioning, supervision and annual shutdown service; maintenance contracts and the supply of spares; components and wear parts; the scope of our services ensures complete turnkey solutions,” concludes Göing.
