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 Co. 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’s stated aim is to continue to deliver a diverse range of products, solutions, and services through their extensive industry knowledge, innovation, and engineering ability. Operating from an extensive purpose-built facility in the heart of England, as well as other UK locations, they have established a robust and efficient network for supporting customers across the globe.


One of QMS’s latest upgrades has been the development of their 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,’ explained managing director Jonathan Beck.

‘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, whilst drive motor and mains electrical starter panels are offered as optional extras.’

Combining robust design and high performance, QMS B4 cone crushers are designed and manufactured to cope with some of the world’s toughest aggregate applications. ‘A blend of high motor power, large eccentric throw, and increased speed give QMS cones greater capacity than other crushers of comparable size,’ said Mr Beck. ‘Their truly modern design creates excellent product shape and can be configured to maximize 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.’

QMS B-Series cone crushers also feature a 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 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.

QMS recently completed the delivery and commissioning of a B4 modular cone crusher at Perry Quarry Product’s quarry in Co. Down, in Northern Ireland. Here the combination of the advanced crusher, together with an 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 Co. 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 has informed us that it is saving Perry Quarry Products £300 a day in diesel. Based on a five-day week, that’s is a huge saving of £78,000 a year,’ said Mr Beck.
