Telsmith‘s Hydra-Jaw crusher can be used in aggregate, mining and recycling applications in stationary, track and wheeled portable plants.

The series includes the H2238, H2550, H3244 and H3450 models with crusher closed-side settings from 2 in. to 8 in. and crushing capacities ranging from 100 short tph to 688 short tph.

According to the company, the Hydra-Jaw toggle tensioning system eliminates the need to adjust springs when changing the setting. A mechanical spring assembly secures each hydraulic toggle end to its respective toggle seat. By securing each end independently, there is no need to adjust the springs when the setting is changed.

Quick to assemble and reliable in operation, the assembly requires no special tools or maintenance, the company adds.

The company’s hydraulic cylinder is built specifically for the crushing environment and incorporates a large piston for high crushing forces and an oversized rod for stability and strength. The bushing and seal are designed to hold up to constant crushing in a dusty environment to deliver long service life with minimal maintenance, according to the company.

Following a power failure or emergency stop, the company’s hydraulic chamber clearing system allows the crusher to start up in as little as 15 minutes. Through push-button controls, hydraulics crush any stone remaining in the chamber, preventing oversized material from passing onto the product belt, the company says.
