Solutions for customer challenges
The most common crushing circuit challenge mentioned by our customers is the need to increase equipment reliability in order to improve uptime and extend the life of their equipment. Longer wear life of parts and components supports increased uptime, directly reduces embedded carbon, and adds circularity benefits, as less materials need to be produced.
Equipment operator safety and crusher maintenance efforts are supported with digital solutions that aim to not only eliminate safety hazards, but also to significantly reduce the amount of time spent on maintenance. For instance, we can add an automated chamber adjustment, which can be remotely operated and maintains a better chamber setting for optimized reduction and size. In the future, our data analysis team will be able to monitor the machines by utilizing the data collected by Metrics, our cloud-based remote condition monitoring platform.

Our digital solutions enable us to provide our customers with analytics that support their performance and sustainability goals. These solutions enable customers to control their equipment remotely and reduce potential operational and/or maintenance hazards.
As newer crusher models generally focus on reducing the weight of major components while increasing the reduction rate and capacity, they are more efficient than the heavier classic crushers. Upgrades to classic crushers target improved efficiency and lighter-weight designs of major components to achieve lower energy consumption and reductions in embedded carbon.
Customers can measure how successful the upgrade has been by looking at the downtime before and after the upgrade, and they will immediately see a return on investment through the reduction in maintenance.
