Solution needed for surge in demand for quality aggregates
As demand for quality aggregates has increased Harleys’ needed to invest in two more new primary jaw crushers for their quarry and contract crushing business that would deliver a quality product, ensure maximum production uptime and meet the growing market demand for aggregates. After extensive market research Harley’s decided to purchase a brace of J-1175 jaw crushers from Alan Fallon at DPS.
The first J-1175 is already proving its worth working on a contract in County Antrim where it has been integrated into an aggregate production train along with a C-1545 cone crusher and 694+ inclined screen producting 4 specification products for the customer. The products produced range from a dust, 3 grades of chip to a standard crush ‘n’ run -75mm (3”). They also utilise the equipment to process recycled concrete , asphalt and concrete demolition material. The 2nd new J-1175 will work along side the existing one and will also work with the other Finlay equipment we have across various sites.
