Tri-Nut has its origin in the exchange of ideas between your on-site experts and our service staff in the field. In contrast to the traditional solution using double nuts, fastening jaw dies, using the Tri-Nut system can be done by hand and with light-weight tools. Only three small screws must be tightened, which can easily be loosened again later. Using the Tri-Nut system, you can easily gain a couple of hours during jaw dies changeouts. The noticeably reduced maintenance breaks lower downtime and operating costs and ensure you run a safer workplace.
This fastening system can be used to replace the normal hexagon nuts on all models of the Nordberg C-Series jaw crusher and can also be used on other jaw crushers, considering the available thread sizes (M30, M36 and M48).
A set consists of a special nut and three hexagon screws and replaces the normal hexagon nuts on each hammer head screw and spring unit. One Tri-Nut replaces two normal hexagon nuts. The number of hammer screw spring assemblies varies depending on machine / jaws. So if there are 16 spring assemblies in a C110 jaw mounting, there are normally 32 hex nuts. If you replace those with the Tri nut solution, you will need only 16 tri nuts. Since 2019, almost all Metso jaw crushers have been delivered with the Tri-Nut fastening system. Customer Service is a mutual exchange, not just eliminating a specific customer problem, but also working together on the sustainable optimization of a situation in need of improvement.
