TITLE
Reduced glare for crusher operator
ARTICLE
At Aggregate Industries’ Buckton Vale Quarry, low sun angles significantly reduced the crusher operator’s view of the process. The remedy entailed the fabrication and fitting of fully adjustable external steel louvres. The gauge of the steel used was sufficient to withstand occasional flying rock fragments which, although the control cabin was fitted with toughened glass, had the potential to give the operator a shock.
