Johannesburg-based Osborn has secured its first export order to Malaysia, for crushers and feeders to be employed in a new ferroalloys smelter.
This substantial order comprises two jaw crushers (an Osborn 36” x 23” Double Toggle Jaw Crusher and 48 x 12 Single Toggle Jaw Crusher), 66 Osborn Obex vibrating pan feeders (650mm x 1 300mm) and 22 Osborn IFE 650mm x 950mm electromagnetic feeders, reports area manager Douglas Mouton.
Osborn’s long-standing reputation as a leading supplier of high quality equipment, as well as its competitive pricing, contributed to the company winning this order on open tender, he says. “In addition, Osborn was able to offer the client a package deal that includes the electromagnetic feeders, which are being supplied by our principal in Austria, IFE Aufbereitungstechnik GmbH,” he adds.
The jaw crusher and pan feeders will be manufactured at Osborn’s Elandsfontein facility and shipped to Malaysia’s Bintulu Port. Mouton notes that the Osborn equipment is ideally suited to the testing ferroalloys industry. “The robust Osborn jaw crushers being supplied are standard units, while the Osborn pan feeders have been customised for the dusty operating environment. The modifications include special dust enclosures, thicker liners and a redesigned drive arrangement to suit the installation,” he explains.
“This is a significant order to a new territory, and we are excited about future prospects for Osborn in Malaysia,” Mouton concludes.
