An all-new mini crusher, for testing rock and aggregate samples in
laboratories has been launched in the UK.
The Crush Force Mini Cone 250 is now available in the UK, following a
strategic joint venture between Tamworth-based Crushers-UK, and South
African dealer C&E Engineering Pty Ltd. The reciprocal, exclusive dealership
contract will also enable C&E Engineering to supply Crushers-UK’s latest
City Jaw 1830 mobile tracked jaw crusher in South Africa.
The new crusher will deliver substantial cost-savings to quarrying
operations that involve testing rock and aggregate samples in laboratories.
Greg Shipley, Director at Crushers UK, said: "The Crush Force Mini Cone 250
crusher is set to take the UK industry by storm. It is based on a
revolutionary concept that has fewer wearing parts, more features than its
rivals and represents the ultimate in user-friendly equipment."
The 250 Mini Cone can reduce up to 16mm feed to a 10mm mesh in a single
pass. The final product is ideal feed to ball or rod mills, laboratory
pulverisers, and gravity concentration tests, such as tables, sink float or
spiral concentration, sizing analysis and sampling.
The new product has specifically been designed for laboratories and pilot
plants to provide an operation comparable to that obtained by reduction
crushers. The crushing is done by pressing the concave against the mantle
without spinning and will give wear liners cost-saving durability, as there
is no unnecessary friction in the chamber.
Another significant feature of the design is that it does not use centre
shafts, which removes the need to replace costly shafts when they break.
Greg Shipley continued: "The Crush Force Mini Cone 250 will be a valuable
new product within the Crushers-UK range. This is a totally new product;
there is nothing similar currently on the UK market, to the best of our
He added: "We are also looking forward to working with our new South African
partners and hope that the City Jaw 1830 works well for C&E Engineering Pty
