• Crushing plant with a capacity of 7,250 t/h copper ore in Chile.

Crushing Plants

Primary crushing plants are the first step in material processing and/or link between mining truck and belt conveyor, train or road.

TAKRAF’s range of crushing plants

Crushing plants can be equipped with gyratory crushers, jaw crushers, twin-shaft sizers, double-roll crushers, impact crushers or hammer crushers, depending on material properties and required throughputs.

We are able to provide mobile, semi-mobile or stationary crushing plants and work together with our clients to choose the most suitable type depending on the mineral deposit, mine plan and mining method, as well as our client’s specific requirements.

Fully-mobile crushing plants

TAKRAF supplies fully-mobile crushing plants equipped with crawlers, wheels or walking mechanisms. Fully mobile crushing plants are directly fed by a shovel or wheel loader and no haulage trucks are required.

Semi-mobile crushing plants

A considerable number of mines around the world opt for a semi-mobile crushing plant as these are in many ways an ideal compromise between flexibility in the pit and the required improvement of carbon footprint by reducing truck haulage following pit advance. These plants are designed in such a manner that they can be relocated through the use of transport crawlers and/or multi-wheelers. Having the flexibility to relocate the crushing plant enables travel distances for haulage trucks and belt conveyors to be optimized during the life of the mine - increasing efficiency and operational flexibility for the mine operator. Choosing the optimal crushing plant location is an essential criteria for the reduction in the number of haulage trucks and an increase in operational efficiency.

Crushing Plants - Relocation in 2015 of an ~800 ton TAKRAF semi-mobile crushing plant, commissioned in 2004, at the Old Cliffe Hill Quarry open pit mine in the UK.

Stationary crushing plants

For mines or quarries boasting mineral deposits with smaller extensions and/or with short haul distances between bench and plant, a stationary crushing plant is usually the most optimal solution. Variations in production can easily be matched by increasing or decreasing the number of haulage trucks.

TAKRAF has supplied more than 50 crushing installations for almost all material-types with throughput rates from 300 t/h to 14,000 t/h.

In-Pit Crushing and Conveying (IPCC)

TAKRAF is a leading global provider of In-Pit Crushing and Conveying (IPCC) systems as an alternative to a conventional material transport system.

Capital and operational costs of an operation depend directly on the material transport system. Conventional truck haulage as today´s predominant means of material transport in surface mines are well established and provide excellent flexibility, however contribute up to 60% of the overall mining cost. Further to the potential operational expenditure (opex) reduction, IPCC systems also offer a number of other benefits to mining operations ranging from an increase in safety to reductions in dust, noise and greenhouse gas emissions, increased automation and bad weather downtime.

IPCC represents a viable, safer and less fossil fuel dependent alternative, comprising fully-mobile, semi-mobile or stationary crushing plants connected to conveyors and spreaders (for waste) or stackers (for ore) to transport material out of the mine.
