IROCK Crushers introduced the WJC-2844 wheeled jaw crusher. Recommended for use as a primary crusher, the WJC-2844 adds to IROCK’s already diverse product line. The WJC-2844 is capable of processing hard rock, recycled concrete, sand and gravel, and slag.
Powered by a 350-hp Caterpillar C-9 ACERT Tier 3 engine, the WJC-2844 can produce up to 370 tph. Providing a capacity of 10.5 cu. yd., the hopper on the unit was designed significantly larger than competing units.
The WJC-2844 is equipped with a 48-in. x 36-ft. discharge belt and features a fixed discharge height of 11 ft., which is the highest stockpiling height in the industry, according to the company. Further, the superior stockpiling capability enables users to pair the WJC-2844 with screening units, which commonly have feeding heights of up to 10 ft.
A hydraulic adjusting chamber allows operators to adjust crushing size from a 2-in. minimum closed side setting to a 6-in. maximum side setting.
The machine includes a 24-in.-wide grizzly bypass conveyor with an adjustable flop gate, as well as a 40-in. x 14-ft. feeder with a 5-ft. grizzly bar section. These features ensure that material, depending on its size, is properly classified and directed to either the side discharge conveyor or the crusher discharge conveyor.
In addition, the WJC-2844 is constructed with heavy-duty components for durability and is also designed to allow for easy maintenance. Components of the crusher are open and easily accessible for ease of lubrication, part replacements or other maintenance. For added convenience, standard catwalks and ladders provide easy access.
For easy transport of the entire plant, the wheeled crusher features radial tires mounted under a 24-in. beam chassis. The unit features quad-axle rear ride suspension and includes a fifth wheel pin. For quick setup, the WJC-2844 is equipped with four hydraulic outriggers for off-loading and leveling the plant. It can be set up or torn down in less than an hour.
