Camden continue with Sandvik crushers

London contractor so impressed with new crusher that they bought two 

As construction companies demand more and more, and as local and central government more clearly specifies the parameters of recycled material use, the manufacturers of mobile crushing equipment are continually being incentivized to produce equipment that is able to cater for these ever increasing customer demands.

Due to the almost unending increase in the need to recycle, and the requirement for more innovative ideas in the production of specific materials, these factors must be addressed by manufacturers of crushing equipment if they wish to thrive in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

The most successful ranges of crushing equipment are designed, continually developed and improved, based on interaction with the people who actually use the machinery - the contractors and end users.

As one of the leading contractors and recyclers of construction and demolition materials in the Greater London area, Camden Plant today are perhaps the leading authority on the use of tracked crushers in this field. Mick Marrinam, managing director, was one of the first customers of Extec’s first mass-produced tracked jaw crusher, the Megabite, in 1996. He has now come full circle and purchased the very latest tracked crusher aimed at the recycling, construction and demolition contractors – the QJ340 from Sandvik.

Compact and mobile, the QJ340 is powered by a C-9 engine that meets all known emissions standards and features a large feed opening and high crushing speed. Durability and reliability are ensured by a reverse crushing action capability designed to relieve blockages. The QJ340 also comes complete with other essential features that have made it such an essential part of Camden plants arsenal. These include:

  1. hydraulically adjustable CSS for a variety of applications
  2. Vogel automatic central lubrication system to increase machine up-time
  3. hydraulic legs for increased stability and servicing capabilities
  4. global aftermarket support, with standard stock parts to ensure minimum loss of production.
