Mining and quarrying equipment specialist Osborn has completed a significant export order for the first Osborn double toggle crusher supplied to Turkey.
This order, from new customer ETi Electrometallurgy, reflects the inroads that Astec Industries group company Osborn is making in the region, as well as Osborn’s growing global reputation as a supplier of robust, unrivalled equipment, says Astec’s regional sales manager Oguzhan Toprak. “Osborn has previously supplied Turkish operations with a complete coal crushing plant, screens and crushers. This latest order is for a 24” x 18” Osborn double toggle jaw crusher as well as a 36” x 16’ Osborn vibrating grizzly feeder. The units will be used in the primary crushing circuit at ETi’s ferroalloy plant located near the Turkish coastal city of Antalya.”
The new Osborn machines form part of an expansion project that is being undertaken by ETi to increase its capacity, Toprak explains. The addition of the high quality, high performance Osborn equipment to the circuit will deliver substantial benefits to ETi, he notes. “The machines previously used in the crushing and screening line were old French-made units from the 1970s. Three old double toggle crushers – a primary, secondary and tertiary – were required to downsize ETi’s material from 250mm to -50mm. With their new Osborn machines, our customer needs just two crushers – primary and secondary – in order to reduce the material to as little as -10mm and gain an increase in capacity.”
The Osborn double toggle crusher range boasts production capacities of up to 600 tph depending on the application. They feature an excellent nip angle, fabricated main frame, cast swing jaw and pitman and reversible jaw dies for maximum wear. Because ETi has a unique, low carbon ferrochrome material that is very hard and abrasive, the Osborn double toggle crusher is the ideal machine for the job, Toprak asserts. “With a rock compressive strength of up to 600Mpa, this is the optimal machine for harder and highly abrasive materials, including ferro-alloy materials. 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 liners.”
He states that the exceptional quality of Osborn equipment and Osborn’s extensive experience in the ferro-alloy industry contributed to the company’s success in securing this order. “Osborn equipment, including double toggle crushers, are operating successfully around the world. Similar recent export orders reflecting Osborn’s experience and expertise include a double toggle jaw crusher shipped to Kazakhstan for Kazchrome, one of the world’s largest chrome exporters which operates several Osborn double toggle crushers along with other Osborn equipment.”
Toprak reveals that additional orders from ETi, for an Osborn secondary crusher and a screen are in the pipeline. “We look forward to growing our partnership with ETi, which is Turkey’s sole producer of low carbon ferrochrome and ferro silico chrome at its Antalya plants and one of the country’s top 500 exporters,” he concludes.
