Karowe mine modular crushing and screening plants
Skid mounted modular crushing and screening plants designed and manufactured in South Africa by mining equipment specialist Osborn are making their mark around the world, with orders received from many local mines as well as operations in China, Siberia, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Lesotho, Mozambique, Burkina Faso and Guinea.
Osborn modular plants offer clients substantial cost savings in terms of the civils and installation costs needed for a traditional plant, as well as savings on transport. They are easy to build, and, because they are mounted on skids, they are easier to set up. They are also easy to transport and re-erect on a new site. These plants are designed to fit into containers when they are dismantled, which makes transportation simpler and cheaper.
Product development director Martin Botha notes that Osborn modular plants are ideal for plant expansion. “All that a customer needs to do is put down a concrete slab, unpack their new modular plant and their expansion is done. They immediately have the desired duty and capacity.”
He elaborates on the advantages: “Our modular plants are easy to build and are mounted on skids, so they are easier to set up. They are also easy to transport and re-erect on a new site. These plants are designed to fit into containers when they are dismantled, which makes transportation easier and cheaper. For customers seeking equipment that is easier to transport, Osborn modular plants offer an affordable solution that fits this bill.”
While not mobile, the plants are easily transportable. Three Osborn modular plants are available, in different sizes – the modular jaw crushing plants (sizes 2540, 3042, 3055, 3648), modular cone crushing plants (sizes 38, 44, 52, 57) and a modular screening plant (sizes 6’ x 16’ and 6 x 20 double and triple decks). Osborn also offers a full quarry processing plant, by adding its new Vertical Shaft Impactor modular plant to the set-up.
Successful Osborn installations around the world include a modular plant to process iron ore for Bayi Steel’s Dunde Plant in China. This plant is situated 3 500m above sea level, and the temperature goes down to minus 40. An Osborn modular plant was also successfully installed and commissioned in snowy Siberia. These orders reflect the Osborn modular plant’s ability to withstand the most testing operating conditions, Botha states.
In Botswana, Karowe diamond mine chose the outstanding quality and reputation of Osborn when it ordered new crushers, including a modular jaw crusher plant.
Namibian aggregate producer Henning Crushers opted for a 300 tph Osborn modular crushing and screening plant to boost the capacity of its Tsumeb operation.
In addition to its unmatched modular crushing and screening plants, Osborn’s line-up of high quality machines includes apron feeders, screens, mineral sizers and an expansive range of crushers for the mining and quarrying industries. A complete range of single and double toggle jaw crushers and Osborn’s range of Gyrasphere Cone Crushers also form part of its product offering.
