The coal industry prefers Osborn’s hardworking, long wearing machines

Despite tough times in the coal sector, Johannesburg-based equipment manufacturer Osborn reports continued demand for its robust coal handling equipment - from the local industry and as far afield as Turkey and China. The company has also launched a new service offering to ensure that coal industry customers can be assured of getting the ideal rotary breaker to meet their requirements.

New “drop test” benefits rotary breaker customers

A new service offering called a “Drop Test” has recently been launched by Osborn to ensure that rotary breaker customers get the ideal machine for their requirements. Product specialist Etienne Swanepoel explains that this test is used to accurately size the rotary breaker needed for customers’ specific applications, based on coal hardness.

He outlines what the test entails.

“Sample lumps of coal and stone approximately 300mm in size are elevated and dropped from a predetermined height onto a rotary breaker screen plate. Broken material is then screened and each fraction is weighed.  Material bigger than the product size is dropped again, and the screened undersize is discarded.

Namibian aggregate producer opts for Osborn modular plant

Namibian aggregate producer Henning Crushers has opted for a 300 tph Osborn modular crushing and screening plant to boost the capacity of its Tsumeb operation.

This R40-million export order reflects Osborn’s expanding footprint in the Namibian market, and the Osborn modular plant’s growing reputation as an unrivalled solution for plant expansion, comments export sales manager Douglas Mouton.
