Gyratory jaw crusher – with an edge

A customised gyratory jaw crusher solution is adding extra ‘teeth’ to a Western Australian extractive operation.

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions Australia has recently been awarded a contract to supply a new primary gyratory jaw crusher for Roy Hill’s iron ore mine near Port Hedland, WA. It is the first above ground gyratory jaw crusher to be installed in Australia, and is based on thyssenkrupp’s BK 63-75 design.

The crusher is characterised by an especially enlarged, serrated feed opening. Jaw gyratory crushers can handle much larger chunks of material than comparable gyratory crushers of the same mantle diameter and feature a higher crushing ratio, with less tendency of clogging and bridging.
