TITLE
Blow bar replacement to secondary crusher
ARTICLE
Huntsmans Quarries has designed and implemented an improved method of replacing the blow bars of the secondary crusher. The original method involved manually handling the bars in a restricted space out of the crusher housing onto the adjacent walkway and onto a waiting forklift and pallet.

To minimise the amount of manual handling and reduce the risk of trapped hands and fingers, the plant team constructed a tower mounted gantry so that the bars were lifted from ground level and swung straight into place in the crusher.
