The machine was delivered to M&M Quarries, currently operating in the Bowen Basin in North Queensland. The TC1550c is the second largest mobile cone crusher in the Brightwater SCS range. The largest is the SCS TC1885c, reputedly the world?s largest mobile crushing unit.
?The TC1550c is very economical. It produces 400 tonnes per hour and the comparatively low running costs make it a very cost-effective machine,? said Steve Scott, manufacturing manager for Brightwater.
?It is robust and versatile and can also be operated by one person in the field, which is a tremendous advantage for operators.?
Brightwater?s development of the SCS TC1550c is in direct response to the growing industry-wide demand for the power and versatility of larger mobile machines that can operate efficiently and effectively in a range of different operational environments.
?We are seeing contractors focus on increased output and better efficiencies,? Scott added.
?To produce better results, you need to have economies of scale across the board. Larger diggers require larger dump trucks and so on.
?It stands to reason then that you must have processing equipment that is bigger and less prone to breakdown if you want to run a smooth operation.?
The TC1550c is currently crushing limestone as part of an eight-machine crushing train. ?The machine is going very well,? said Jason McDonald from M&M Quarries. ?We?ve had a number of cone crushers built by Brightwater in the past and we know from experience that they are rugged and reliable. We are already getting around 400 tonnes per hour out of the TC1550c so it is definitely a great acquisition for us.?
