Maximus 1000×600 Jaw Crusher Details

The Maximus 1000×600 Jaw Crusher (MXJ-1000) is an aggressive, heavy duty, compact jaw crusher designed to handle hard rock, ores and demolition concrete for the quarrying and mining industries.

The 1000×600 Jaw Crusher has a modern design with a user friendly control system which maximises machine production capabilities with a powerfully hydraulically driven jaw box which has been developed for the most demanding applications.  It delivers high production, large feed opening, adjustable crusher settings and an advanced electronic control system interface.

The MXJ-1000 is equipped with a huge feed hopper with capacity of up to 300 tph, a grizzly pre-screening grid and a large 800mm main conveyor belt.  The jaw crusher has an inlet opening of 1000 mm x 600 mm (36” x 24”) and is equipped with hydraulic wedge adjustment.  The powerful C7.1 Tier IV 167 kw engine gives enough strength to perform in the hardest conditions meaning this machine is ideal for users who require high capacities, reliability and impressive output.

The 1000×600 Jaw crusher is designed to compete with the Pegson Metrotrack, Sandvik QJ240, McCloskey J40, OM Keestrack Argo jaw crushers.

Why Use a Jaw Crusher

Jaw crushers are one of the most versatile crushers available and are one of the most popular machines in the UK.  This is because these machines are very good at doing a pretty much all round job with very limited chance of damage and the benefit of a low cost per ton production rate.  Most demolition contractors are only looking to crush material to 75mm minus (crusher run) the jaw crusher is the machine of choice giving excellent production and wear life.

Jaw Box Technical Information

In general most jaw crushers come with 2 levels of jaw box protection technology.

  • Toggle plate – Like the crumple zone in a car, the toggle plate is designed to break if a contaminant goes into the jaws protecting the jaws and shaft configuration from twisting or breaking.
  • Feder Ring – The feder ring is like a bushing between the flywheel and the jaw shaft, with the momentum of the jaw in normal operation.  If a contaminant enters the crusher and stops the jaw solid, the feeder ring is torsion just right to allow the flywheel to spin therefore protecting the shaft and jaw assembly.

Maximus have designed their crushers to use the OM/Keestrack range of crusher boxes, therefore eliminating the early stages of jaw design making mistakes and having to wait a very long time until the machine is absolutely right for the market.  Utilising this jaw technology from the OM/Keestrack gives this machine an extra level of jaw box protection (Hydraulic Release).

This machine is equipped with:

  • Hydraulic adjust – The Maximus jaw crusher can open and close the jaws hydraulically while in operation when crushing material, very handy if there is a blockage or to quickly size the material at the right specification.
  • Hydraulic release – The Maximus automatically opens jaw CSS in incremental stages of 9mm.  If contaminant still present after 3 stages the jaw opens fully.  If at any stage the contaminant clears the jaws will return to their original CSS and continue to work as if nothing happened.  If the contaminant does not clear the jaws will open to their widest CSS, if it clears it will go back to original setting if not, it will automatically shut down the machine.

Utilising this technology gives the operator the reassurance to know that they can get on with the job and all this in a machine that has a transport weight of just 35 tons which allows the machine to be easily transported to site on most low loaders with the knowledge that it is an excellent sized machine to deal with most applications.
