New “J” Series Crusher added to McCloskey Line

Machine diagnostics can drastically reduce maintenance downtime

McCloskey International has introduced a new addition to its "J" series of crushers, with some unique features that make the J44 Jaw Crusher a standout in its category.

The J44 main conveyor has a large stockpile capacity (12’ – 11") as a result of the standard extended 42" conveyor, and the large gap between crusher discharge and the main conveyor feedboot. The folding Hardox hopper is mounted over the vibrating feeder with integral pre-screen. Further, the feeder rate can be regulated manually or automatically by the load sensing jaw.

The J44 has an I-beam plate fabricated chassis construction, and features a true 44" x 26" (1118 mm x 650 mm) single toggle jaw with reversible hydrostatic drive and jaw plates as well as fully hydraulic closed size setting adjust capability.

Ease of maintenance is a strong advantage for the J44. The Control Panel is user-friendly and has machine diagnostics that can drastically reduce downtime for maintenance. Adding to the ease of maintaining a J44, the conveyor is easily removable as it raises and lowers hydraulically and the CAT C9 ACERT engine has all round access.

With the advantage of the efficiency of McCloskey’s integrated hydraulics, better fuel economy is realized and the J44 can be on-site and operational in a matter of minutes with its folding hoppers and conveyers. Easy to move from site to site, the J44 has transport dimensions of 11’-1.8" (3.4 m) high and 47’ - 5.5" (14.465 m) long, and weighs in at 88,184 lbs. (40,000 kgs).

With additional options like a water pump and dust suppression system, hopper extensions, an overband magnet or Crusher Deflector Plate, as well as robust standard safety features, the J44 is high performance and productive.

New Deal Improves Labour Mobility For Apprentices

Premier Hancock signs labour mobility agreement-in-principle with Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil
Premier Hancock signs labour mobility agreement-in-principle with Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil

Alberta and Nova Scotia have signed an agreement in principle to ensure apprenticeship training is transferable between both provinces.This agreement will improve the recognition of in-province training, allow for the recognition of apprenticeship work experience hours and enhance labour mobility for apprentices in both provinces. 

Marc MacNeil, a third year pipe fitter apprentice from Nova Scotia said the new agreement will help to eliminate barriers and make it easier for apprentices to achieve certification. “This is great news. I know a lot of people apprenticing who aren’t being recognized for their qualifications even though they’ve completed their program. It’s been tough for them to find an employer to take them on, and some have had to retake courses or work additional hours to get their journeyman status.”

Sonic Drilling Technology Nominated For A Fourth Award

Ray Roussy
Ray Roussy

The Northern Ontario Institute of Technology (NOIT) has nominated Ray Roussy, developer of modern day sonic drilling technology and the president of the Sonic Drill Corporation (SDC) and Sonic Drilling Ltd., for an Ontario Premier's award.

Roussy is an alumni of NOIT where he was first introduced to mechanical engineering before continuing onto Lakehead University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree in 1974. Today, 40 years later, Roussy holds dozens of patents involving sonic drilling technology and is solely responsible for the successful commercialization of it when others failed to make it work. If Roussy wins the Ontario Premier's award, it will be the fourth award since 2008 for his technology. Previous awards include:

  • 2012 – Technology Award from the National Ground Water Association (USA)
  • 2010 – Manning Innovation Award (Canada)
  • 2008 – Best New Drilling Technology award from the Canadian GeoExchange Coalition (Canada)

Kennametal Presents RoadRazor II: The New Shape Of Road Construction Productivity

Road Razor II from Kennametal.
Road Razor II from Kennametal.

With its unique and proprietary shape combined with improved hardness throughout the head area, the new RoadRazor II from Kennametal now includes carbide ring segments below the tip. With this added wear protection for the steel tool body, RoadRazor II is the economical and ecological tool of choice for road-milling companies interested in improved performance and maximum value.

Maximum hardness and improved shape in road milling tools results in easier cutting at faster speeds for longer than users may have thought possible. Due to significantly less vibration, lower power requirements, and added wear protection, customers can choose to run at conventional speeds and save fuel, or run faster and spend less time to complete the job.

Caterpillar releases 826K Landfill Compactor

The Cat 826 Landfill Compactor has set the design standard for this demanding application since 1978, and with the introduction of the K Series model, that design is further advanced in terms of operator comfort and safety, ease of operation, durability, reliability, low-cost operation, and productivity. Two Cat C15 ACERT™ engine options are available, meeting U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emission standards or U.S. EPA Tier 3/EU Stage IIIA equivalent emission standards. It delivers 405 net horsepower (302 kW) to the 826K's drive train, which uses a 2F/2R planetary power-shift transmission, lock-up torque converter, and heavy-duty planetary axles that can accommodate three new wheel-and- tip configurations. With an operating weight of 90,207 pounds (40 917 kg), coupled with massive structures that remain solid through a number of rebuilds, the 826K is built for rugged durability.

For fuel-saving performance, the 826K features an Eco Mode, which, when selected by the operator, limits engine speed and allows the machine to function in an auto-shift mode when maximum torque is not required. For operator convenience, the left pedal serves as a brake, transmission neutralizer, and engine decelerator, which the operator can use to temporarily override the engine speed set with the throttle lock for safely maneuvering around obstacles. And for optimum responsiveness and control, the 826K's STIC system allows single-lever steering and transmission control.

Turning Up The Volume: Rotating Shear and Game-Changing Serrated Blades

Operating just south of Dallas out of Waxahachie, Texas, hlh&r Metals is a scrap metal recycler that deals mainly in ferrous, with a focus on heavy-melt materials. The company provides containerized collection service to scrap yards and industrial sites located within an 80-mile radius from their yard, using dumpsters and a fleet of roll-off trucks, along with roll-off and end-dump trailers. Materials are brought to the yard, sorted, cleaned, processed and blended for local steel mills and foundries who buy 100 percent of the company’s inventory each month. Hlh&r also buys a significant amount of “nuisance-grade” scrap (rebar-containing materials sourced mainly from crushing and demolition projects).

“We call it nuisance-grade simply because it is difficult to effectively process. Most people use linkage shears to process this kind of material, or they’re using a thick stationary shear,” explains Hugh Taylor, hlh&r’s founder and owner. “The issue is that it destroys shear blades extremely quickly, compared to other materials. With rebar, you’re lucky if you’re getting 40-50 hours of processing out of a set of blades.”

Cold Weather Generator Operation

A generator equipped with a snow hood being loaded for delivery.

Diesel generators are notoriously problematic during cold weather. Not only does diesel fuel become unstable in cold temperatures but when the engine block and heads are cold, they absorb the heat of the compression required to ignite diesel fuel.

When generators used for standby or continuous power will be operated at 32°F (0°C) or below – especially for extended periods of time – operators must take precautions to ensure the generator will start reliably, get to the desired load quickly, and continue to run without incident and unnecessary stress and wear on the engine.
