MEQUON, WI –    Telsmith, Inc., an Astec company, introduces the new Hydra-Jaw H3244, the newest and largest model in the Hydra-Jaw product line. Offering a 32” (813 mm) gape and 44” (1118 mm) width, the H3244 is designed to accept larger feed and yield higher production than current 30” x 42” models.

Incorporating the unique Hydra-Jaw toggle, the H3244 features hydraulic tramp iron relief, chamber clearing and setting adjustment. This new technology allows operators to clear the chamber or adjust the setting, from a control house or remote location, using push button controls. Hydraulic tramp iron relief automatically protects the crusher from damage when an overload occurs, and resets after the tramp iron clears the chamber. By incorporating these features into jaw crushers, the Hydra-Jaw provides safer crusher operation with reduced parts consumption and downtime.  Owners and operators benefit with improved uptime availability, lower operating costs and a safer work environment.

Designed to perform in hard rock quarry or S&G operations, the H3244 is also flexible in how it is applied. Built using the Telsmith sculpted, low profile main frame concept, the H3244 is available installed on a complete modular primary structure or as a road portable primary plant. Hopper and rock box options can accommodate truck dump, loader or excavator feed arrangements.

The new Telsmith Tel-Trax Model TC52SBS will be displayed at ConExpo/Con-Agg 2011, in the Astec/Telsmith Booth C-5133, where product engineers will be on-hand to discuss its benefits.
