TITLE
Primary crusher blow bars vibrator
ARTICLE
A build-up of compacted fines made it difficult to loosen and change the primary crusher blow bars. In the past, a 14lb copper sledge hammer was used to dislodge the bars. However, this brought a risk of repetitive strain injuries and being hit by flying shrapnel.

The solution was to install an Invicta vibrator to shake the bars free of the compacted fines. The vibrator was attached to a purpose-made frame from which it could perform its task.
