Roy Hill has awarded thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions a contract to supply an Australia-first primary jaw gyratory crusher for its iron ore mine in the Pilbara, Western Australia.

Roy Hill has awarded thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions a contract to supply a primary jaw gyratory crusher for its iron ore mine in the Pilbara, Western Australia.

The new crusher is the first above ground jaw gyratory crusher for iron ore to be installed in Australia and has been designed for high performance and cost-effective operation, with low servicing and maintenance costs.

Jaw gyratory crushers have enlarged feed openings that are usually serrated which, along with the upper part of the mantle, forms the initial crushing zone.

Coarsely crushed material is then reduced to the desired product size in the crushing chamber below.

thysseknrupp said in a release that jaw gyratory crushers can handle larger chunks of material compared with other gyratory crushers of the same mantle diameter. They also often have a higher crushing ratio and are less likely to become clogged in the feed zone as a result of bridging.

“We are excited and grateful for the opportunity to be supplying Roy Hill with a new primary jaw gyratory crusher,” thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (Australia) Head of Sales Ben Suda said.

“This is the third order for such machine within a short time in Australia. It shows once again the confidence our customers in the country place in crushing equipment from thyssenkrupp.”

The contract is the third order for a gyratory crusher awarded to thyssenkrupp in Australia in the last 12 months.
