Out with the Old, In with the New

July 22, 2014 | By | No Comments

George Reed’s Jackson Valley Quarry, located in Ione CA, has recently experience a transformation from a 1964 model Jaw crusher to a new 2014 model. The 1964 Baxter Jaw Crusher has been crushing rock at the forefront of the Jackson Valley site for over 20 years. Thanks to the ingenuity of the world renowned company Metso and through the services of Compass Equipment Inc. we have been able to update our plant with a high quality 2014 model Metso C-140 (55 in x 42 in) Jaw Crusher. With the right tools in place one is able to minimize down time and reduce cost; and with the Metso C-140, that is just the case. Thanks to the integral design of the C-140, we now have the capability of making crushing adjustments in minutes for what used to take hours. The design of special rubber dampers and stoppers allow the crusher to run more quietly and also reduce wear and subsequent damage to the crusher’s structure and foundation. In less than 10 days with the help of GRI’s team of Operators, American Crane, Compass Equipment Inc., Layman Electric, and Metso we were able to transform our 1964 Jaw Crusher into a state of the art 2014 Jaw Crusher.
