Dry and Wet Processing Solutions for the coal industry

McLanahan  can provide processing solutions for wet and dry applications, plus manage filtration and dewatering of fines.

Optimise equipment for ROM handling

Global ingenuity and Australian-based engineering design capability has given us the capacity to respond to your needs. We can help you to optimise your plant by modifying or upgrading your existing equipment to give you faster access, shorter shutdown periods, lower risk and lower total cost of ownership.

For example, we recently designed a new front access door on one of our local customer’s existing ROM feeder breaker. This access door doubled as a work platform for accessing the breaker head and drive shaft.

This simple optimisation saves hundreds of man-hours per year and offers a much safer way to carry out maintenance.

Wet crushing of coal at a fraction of the cost

Every coal operation is unique, so it helps to have an OEM partner that really understands your operation. You will get the most value from your system by having an OEM that works with your organisation to design equipment for your environment.

By working closely with our customer, we were able to design wet coal sizers using standard componentry coupled with innovative sealing arrangements to deliver a vastly superior circuit suited to operating in a wet flushing environment.

McLanahan wet sizers delivered significantly higher operating life combined with enormous cost savings, Y-O-Y.

Drive productivity with robust, reliable equipment

Equipment reliability drives productivity.

McLanahan has designed and installed a new type of crushing segment for an operation in the Gunnedah Basin after discussing the need to stretch mean-time between changeouts. The new design incorporated a patented carbide-impregnated tooth, with a much simpler way to remove and replace crushing segments without removing the roll shaft.

The outcome? Double the crusher segment life and reduced replacement times.
