    • Primary Gyratory - History First Generation (Mk I) Traylor Type C (Bulldog) Gyratory Crusher (1905 - 1950) Second Generation (Mk II) Traylor Type TC Gyratory Crusher (1950 – 1990) Third Generation (Mk III) Traylor Type NT Gyratory Crusher (1990 – Present) Fourth Generation (Mk IV) Traylor Type TS Gyratory Crusher (2005 – Present) 13 28 November 2013 Primary Gyratory 13 Crushers
    • Gyratory - Added Value in Design 1. Fuller-Traylor Bar-Type Spider • 4-Bolt Attachment • Simple Geometry • Fast to Install, Fast to Remove • Compact Lay-Down Areaxxxxx • Saves 10 Hours of Down Time per Main Shaft Change-out • Annually this equals 10 hrs x 4 persons x 3 changes per year = 120 man hours or 30 hours of additional annual production. Primary Gyratory Crushers 28 November 14 14
    • Gyratory - Added Value in Design 2. Fuller-Traylor Specialty Maintenance Tools • Concave Replacement Platforms • Eccentric Maintenance Carts • Provide Safe Work Area • Pre-Assemble Concaves While Plant is Operating • Reduces Crusher Down-time for Concave Replacement from 48 hours to 36 Hours. Primary Gyratory Crushers 28 November 15 15
    • Latest Developments Top Service “TS” Design Gyratory • Designed for Safe Maintenance • NO Eccentric Cart Required • NO Large Discharge Bin Doors • Replacement Times: 4 Hours Main Shaft Assembly 6 Hours Eccentric Assembly 10 Hours Outer Eccentric Bushing xxx • Safety Value….Less Exposure 125 Man-hours less for unscheduled Eccentric Bushing replacement. • Plant Design Savings +$ 400,000 Primary Gyratory Crushers 28 November 16 16
    • Fuller-Traylor® Primary Gyratory Crushers World’s Largest Gyratory 1600 x 3000 (63” x 118”), 1200 kW Hudbay Minerals – Constancia Copper 17
    • Gyratory – Future Developments…? New Concepts: • • • • • • 100+ Years of Experience Benefit of Finite Element Analysis Benefit of Solid Works 3D Modeling Modern Control Techniques Willingness for “Out of the box Thinking” Desire to “Break away from Traditional Ideas” Desires: • • • • • Increased Capacity (Not at Expense of OSS Setting) Increased Power (More efficiently utilized) More Maintenance Friendly New Materials for Increased Wear Life Improved Safety Features Constraints: • • • • Modern Day Foundry Capacities Modern Day Machine Shop Capacities Transportation Limitations Industry Reluctance to Accept New Ideas Primary Gyratory 18 Cruhers
