On the line of Tropic of Cancer, at the hot pan of India is Keolari, Seoni in Madhya Pradesh, where thyssenkrupp Industries India has supplied a complete 3-stage, 200tph crushing and screening solution to Anju Choudhary Stone Crushers.
Owner, T.L.Choudhary, a veteran player in the aggregates market, chose thyssenkrupp for a repeat order, having been satisfied with the performance of his earlier two thyssenkrup 2-stage crusher plants deployed in the same vicinity.
India’s infrastructure is witnessing high growth backed by the government’s development plans for the sector. With demand booming, many projects are being awarded in railway, roads, bridges, ports, and smart cities, etc. Anju Choudhary Stone Crushers has bagged a part order of supply of railway ballast to a new connecting railway line between Jabalpur to Nagpur and surrounding area.
The new station in Nainpur, which is 15 kms from the Anju Choudhary crushing plant, made it easy for timely completion of the project. The south eastern part of Madhya Pradesh, surrounded by lush green fauna and huge wild life blocks, made the road engineering very challenging.
Also coming up is a new 4-way road line from Nagpur, to Seoni of which about 25 to 30 kms is largely elevated, in view of the area’s geology.
Seeing the growing need for stones, T.L.Choudhary decided to set up a 3rd plant. The 3-stage crushing plant has a Jaw Crusher PST1108 in the primary circuit, cone crusher RBC3000 in the secondary stage, and VSI NP3503 as a tertiary station. The plant has 2 screens to produce railway ballast as well as aggregate products of 14-22, 8-14, 4-8, and 0-4 mm for road construction and for the local markets of Seoni and surrounding places.
Currently, there are more than 100, PST1108 Jaw Crushers working across India. They can crush very hard rock and need very low maintenance, making them a favourite crusher for India’s aggregate industry.
PST1108 offers benefits like a robust design, casted pitman and a heavy-duty structure to achieve greater crushability for all types of stones and ores. The crusher is equipped with a hydraulically-assisted gap setting system which reduces manual workforce and downtime for CSS settings.
The primary station has a big 30m3 size feed/dump hopper to give efficient truck dumping system. Around 650 mm of basalt boulders are fed to the Jaw Crusher to reduce the size below 180 mm. Together with its modern, sturdy skid system, the primary station is one of the best and strongest in the market. It is equipped with both soft and star-delta starters for trouble-free and minimum downtime operation.
Cone crusher RBC 3000, with a roller bearing in the secondary station with a feed opening of 190 mm, produces quality railway ballast (26-65mm) and -26 mm passing further to VSI NP3503. The cone crusher is equipped with a modern lubrication and hydraulic system that controls and monitors its health. The MCC control panel has modern crusher starters with safety system for motors, while the hydraulic system ensures trouble-free gap setting operation.
The tertiary station, equipped with VSI NP3503 crusher with 200 Kw motor, produces the best cubicle aggregate products of 0-4, 4-8, 8-14, and 14-22 mm to cater to road infrastructure projects and also the local market. The closed 3-stage circuit has a 2 deck MF1848 and a 4 deck MF1848 screen that enhance productivity for meeting demand from the railways and aggregate markets. From this 3-stage circuit, a throughput of 200 tph products are achieved with 50% of 26-65 mm (Railway Ballast) and 50% of 0-22 mm aggregates. A regular 10-12 hour shift produces around 1500 tph of products.
The MCC and control panels have modern safety systems to safeguard the drive motors and the workers. All the equipments have ABB drive motors and the high quality electrical accessories of Schneider/ABB, makes the plant more durable and maintenance-free.
The plant works with a modern dust separation system with 5 HP pumping station, which makes it user-friendly and the operations environmentally safe. All these features makes this modern plant a most efficient crushing plant in the market.
