TITLE  
The DMP ring
ARTICLE
Glensanda Quarry is the largest granite quarry in Europe producing seven to eight million tonnes of crushed stone per year.

The DMP ring is a large steel ring which is lifted into place via an overhead crane and inserted on the inside of the gyratory crusher rim, preventing objects from dropping into the crusher chamber whilst staff are working in and around the crusher.

The DMP ring keeps maintenance staff safe from any falling objects whilst working below the crusher and prevents people from falling into the crusher chamber during maintenance work in and around the dump hopper.
