Built specifically to handle mineral processing equipment, L&H Industrial’s Tempe, AZ operation offers Design & Engineering, Manufacturing & Repair, and Field Services for Aggregate operations. With over 50 years of experience building solutions for the biggest machines on earth, there is not much they cannot support.
So when a dolomitic limestone quarry in Oklahoma producing 3-million tons of raw throughput yearly, had a massive 42-70 gyratory crusher nearing catastrophic failure, it was clear they needed a partner that could handle the job.
With continual maintenance concerns, output decreased, downtime increased, and the quarry fell short of production goals; but most importantly, maintenance teams were exposed to increased safety risks, which was the operation’s number one priority.
It was obvious the crusher would need a complete overhaul to upgrade and repair the equipment back to maximum producing capacity and keep their teams safe.
L&H field crews, engineers, project managers and production teams collectively built a plan to disassemble the crusher, rebuild the components, and reassemble onsite.
The complete rebuild included repairing the main shaft, rebuilding the spider and hydro-set, supplying new brass, and changing out the concaves. The extremely large components required specialty equipment to rebuild at this size; and were sent to L&H Industrial’s Tempe, AZ facility; specifically built for large equipment manufacturing and repairs.
When the project was finished, the crusher’s output had increased over 200%.
