New QMS B4 modular cone crusher saves Perry Quarry Products £78,000 per annum

Quarry Manufacturing & Supplies (QMS) latest highly productive customer focused solution is the new B-Series modular cone crusher range. One such plant has been installed at Perry Quarry Product’s site in County Down, Northern Ireland, where as well as delivering accurate and productive aggregate production, its features are estimated to be saving the company £78,000 per annum.

QMS avowed aim is to continue to deliver a diverse range of products, solutions, and services through its extensive industry knowledge, innovation and exceptional engineering ability. Operating from an extensive purpose built facility located in the heart of England, as well as other UK locations, QMS has established a robust and efficient network for supporting customers across the globe. Through placing a premium on investment in its people, technologies, processes, and supplier partnerships, QMS continues to raise the bar in manufacturing excellence, delivering exceptional service and outstanding value.

Modular cone crusher

An example of this operating philosophy, and one of QMS’s latest upgrades, has been the development of its B4 modular cone crusher, which has already made contributions to aggregate plant productivity and cost effectiveness.  “We understand the complexity of aggregate processing and the operational challenges our customers face on a daily basis. So we’ve spent years developing our range of processing equipment and machinery, purpose-built for the quarrying, mining, recycling and demolition industries. All our products are manufactured in-house and are fully warranted by QMS, being made and inspected in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 standard (TUV register).

“One of our latest developments has been to our B4 cone crusher. This is now available in a modular form which is benefitting companies across the globe. Furthermore all QMS cone crushers are competitively priced and include lubrication and hydraulic systems, control system with touch screen HMI, drive and guards and support frame within the purchase price. Drive motor and mains electrical starter panels are offered as optional extras,” explains QMS managing director Jonathan Beck.

Toughest conditions

The QMS B4 cone crushers are designed and manufactured to cope with some of the world’s toughest aggregate applications. Designed, developed, and manufactured in the UK, they combine robust design and high performance. “A blend of high motor power, large eccentric throw and increased speed give QMS cones greater capacity than other crushers of comparable size. Their truly modern design creates excellent product shape and can be configured to maximise production of premium single sized aggregates. The highly adaptable cones can be configured to suit a wide range of applications by selecting the correct crushing chamber and eccentric throw,” adds Jonathan.

The QMS B-Series cone crushers also feature a unique hydraulic system which provides automatic overload protection by allowing the head assembly to drop, permitting the passage of tramp iron and other non-crushable material. The system then automatically returns the head assembly to its original position. The unique design of the hydraulic system means the crusher operates at a definite setting with less setting drift and greater stability throughout the circuit. The crusher setting is instantaneously maintained even after passing a piece of tramp iron.

Cost effectiveness

QMS recently completed the delivery and commissioning of a B4 modular cone crusher at Perry Quarry Product’s County Down quarry in Northern Ireland. Here the combination of the advanced B4 cone crusher, together with electric power supply, has seen the successful marriage of productivity and accuracy with large operational savings. “The installation of the B4 modular cone crusher in County Down replaced a tracked Metso LT200 cone crusher. Our solution has an electric drive, powered by a diesel generator. We believe that the installation has been highly successful as (company owner) John Perry informs us that it is saving Perry Quarry Products £300 a day in diesel; on a five day week, this is a huge saving of £78,000 a year,” explains Jonathan.

Perry Quarry Products and its sister company Kilkeel Concrete have gained a reputation in Ireland for professional service and product excellence. The companies use the most modern and productive equipment to deliver the finest building aggregates, with all materials being quality tested, and can be tailored to suit specific project requirements. All materials supplied are environmentally friendly and of the highest quality, with recycled aggregates being highly suited to various applications including landscaping and construction, with waste minimised and all materials being reused and recycled.
