Osborn Crushers for Russia

Osborn Hadfields Double Toggle Jaw Crushers

Reflecting the inroads it is making into the Russian market, Johannesburg-based bulk materials handling and minerals processing specialist, Osborn, has netted an export order for three Osborn Hadfields Double Toggle Jaw Crushers to be employed at a ferrochrome crushing plant at Chelyabinsk.

Marketing director Martin Botha elaborates: "The Russian market is opening up for Osborn, largely through the efforts of our agent in St Petersburg, which is aggressively marketing Osborn's robust, high quality machines in the region.

"The Russian market has previously been very aggregate orientated for Osborn, but our agent, Northwest Leasing, in St Petersburg, is targeting new markets - the ferrochrome industry in particular. There are many opportunities, including an order for Osborn apron feeders that is in the pipeline.

"We are very excited to be breaking into a new market that holds great potential for Osborn," Botha continues. "This order for Osborn Hadfields Double Toggle Jaw Crushers is, potentially, the first order of four, for new ferrochrome plants in Chelyabinsk. The ferrochrome industry is a growth area for Osborn at the moment, and it's very significant that the reputation of our tough, long-wearing machines is reaching as far afield as Russia."

The Osborn Hadfields Double Toggle Jaw Crusher boasts high production capacity and is capable of accepting high compression strength feed material. Other features that are contributing to this heavy duty crusher's growing popularity include its excellent nip angle, fabricated main frame, swing jaw with cast and pitman. The reversible jaw dies provide for maximum use of liners. The Osborn Hadfields Double Toggle Jaw Crusher is available in a wide range of sizes, enabling customers to choose the models best suited to their crushing needs.

Botha says the rugged machine is increasingly the jaw crusher of choice in the arduous ferrochrome industry, with Osborn having shipped units to Chile and Zambia, in addition to the many Osborn Hadfields Double Toggle Jaw Crushers operating in South Africa.
