HPE Africa has been appointed by McCloskey International as exclusive distributors in Southern Africa for McCloskey crushing and screening plants.

McCloskey International specialises in the design and manufacture of robust machinery, that copes efficiently, for extended periods, in harsh local conditions. This equipment includes jaw, cone and impact (horizontal and vertical) crushers; trommel and vibrating screeners, stacking conveyors and washing systems.   

“Through HPE Africa’s branch and distributor network, the local market now has improved accessibility to the McCloskey range, which is supported by the HPE Africa team,” says HPE Africa’s managing director, Alex Ackron. “McCloskey equipment is known for easy operation, high efficiency, low maintenance requirements and extended service life – even in tough conditions.

“These robust machines are used extensively in industries that include aggregates, mining and quarrying, waste management and recycling, construction and demolition, as well as infrastructure projects, road building and landscaping.”

McCloskey jaw, cone and impact crushers, which are utilised in materials processing, offer high productivity in all crushing applications. The range of mobile screeners includes the S-series and R-series screeners, which offer high output and durability in demanding conditions. Trommels operate in conjunction with a remote controlled 180˚radial stockpiling conveyor. Stacking conveyors – tracked and wheeled – provide stockpiling solutions that maximise efficiency of mobile screening and crushing plants.

The first McCloskey stock units – the R155 screener and J45 jaw crusher – have recently been delivered to HPE Africa’s head offices in Gauteng. 

 This robust R155 screening machine is able to cope with difficult applications, by efficiently minimising material pre-handling and providing clean end-products. Typical applications for the R155 screener include site reclamation, construction and demolition waste and working with difficult materials, like heavy rock, sticky clay and fines, as well as boulder clay.

The high-performance McCloskey J45 jaw crusher, with a 45” x 27” jaw, ensures efficient handling of materials in arduous environments. This versatile series has both level and load sensors as standard, making it an ideal crusher for all applications.

Other features of the J45 include a heavy-duty bofar grizzly design and pan feeder chutes, with steeper angles, designed to reduce material sticking. A high-capacity hopper with 6 m³ capacity, is mounted over a vibrating feeder. The main conveyor is fitted with heavy-duty skirting, positioned close to ground level, for ease of access and maintenance.

HPE Africa’s range also includes Hyundai wheel loaders, wheeled and tracked excavators, and skid steer loaders, as well as Soosan hydraulic hammers, to complement the McCloskey range.
