Creeton take a Rammer BR4099 and BR3288 to Maximise Efficiency

By |

Creeton Quarry, part of the Johnson Quarry Group, have recently purchased a Rammer BR4099 and BR3288 to help process material at their Jurassic Limestone Quarry in Lincolnshire.  The quarry has three distinct beds: Creeton Banded, Creeton Hard White and Creeton Silverbed, which are utilised for a wide range of processing and masonry projects.

The Rammer BR4099 hydraulic hammer conducts the primary extraction using a hard rock chisel, breaking tough rock out from the quarry face.  Once the material is transported over to the crushing and screening area, the BR3288 deals with any oversize lumps in a secondary application, using a blunt tool to enable a smooth transition for the infeed to the crushing process.

Both the Rammer 4099 and 3288 hydraulic hammers incorporate a revolutionary new operating principle that combines stroke length, blow energy and Rammer’s idle blow protector, allowing the hammer to be adjusted to match individual carriers and applications, which improves both hydraulic efficiency and safety.  The hammers also both include Ramdata II.   This technology monitors vital functions including working hours, operating method and shift duration, using this information to help predict failures before they occur and schedule service and maintenance.  A further benefit of Rammer hammers is ‘stroke selector’ which makes it easy to change between short-long stoke depending on the material.  Selecting stoke lengths allows operators to adjust the working method to suit different applications and improve productivity.

Dealing with up to 4,000 tons per day running through the crushing train, the two Rammer hydraulic hammers are working in Tandem, giving Creeton the reliability and efficiency required to maximise their productivity.  Commenting on the role of the hammers to the whole crushing and screening process, Managing Director Steve Johnson commented, “The Rammer hammers are playing a vital role within the quarry.  They allow the crusher loader to operate at maximum speed and for the crusher to work at full capacity without any issues.  Without the hammers, we simply wouldn’t create as much saleable material.”

The exciting capabilities of the ALLU range of Transformers were shown at Hillhead 2018 for the first time by ALLU’s new UK distributor, Blue Machinery Group Company Murray Plant. The company was delighted with the reception the ALLU Transformers received, with many new orders being taken during the three day show.

Hillhead was held from the 26th – 28th June in Buxton, Derbyshire, and is the world’s largest ‘live-action’ quarrying show. As such, ALLU used the show to demonstrate the benefits of the Transformer Series, which has proved to be ideal for quarrying, surface mining and aggregate production.

The ALLU range of equipment was exhibited by its new UK dealer, Murray Plant. Part of the Blue Machinery Group of companies, Murray Plant also displayed other key product ranges, including the world-renowned Rammer hydraulic breakers and demolition attachments.

The ideal solution for quarrying and aggregates

The ALLU Transformer Series was the main focus of Murray Plant’s ALLU offering at Hillhead. This comprises of an excavator/ loader/ tractor mounted processing bucket which screens, pulverizes, aerates, blends, mixes, separates, even crushes, feeds and loads materials. This results in the feed material being effectively transformed into highly valuable products, making any business involved in waste and recycling more efficient, and more profitable.

Catering for applications of all sizes, and capable of processing any material that can be screened and sorted, the ALLU Transformer Series comprises of the compact DL & D Series as well as the truly massive M and G Series. All are designed to transform the way in which materials handling and processing businesses are able to improve their efficiency and profitability.
