A Little Training Goes a Long Way

Recently the Service Technicians at both Mellott and Marion Machine received Metso C-Jaw ASC (Active Setting Controls) training.  First the technicians received a basic C-Jaw refresher class and engaged in some discussions on best practices for maintenance and troubleshooting crushers.  Then they dove into ASC or “Active Setting Controls” training.  The ASC training was designed to combat the effects of a crusher taking in an uncrushable object.  Uncrushable objects can consist of concrete waste and steel objects to name a couple examples. The ASC protects the crusher from overloading by allowing it to let an uncrushable pass through, and then return the crusher back to its original settings within seconds to maximize uptime. Geoff Welcyng – GM Southern Service – Operations Manager for Marion, had this to say regarding the training, “The days of shutting down a jaw and digging out the chamber can be in the past with this new technology.  It also promotes safety by keeping operators from having to dig out chambers in the event of an uncrushable.”

The class was held at Marion Machine and was instructed by Mellott Service Manager, Ronnie Teeters. This is one in a series of training seminars Mellott provides for their Field Service Technicians to strengthen their core service offerings.

Our Metso HP 800 Mainframe had a loose shaft and we re-fit the shaft back to OEM specs with a 2-week-turnaround to get a 3.5-million-ton-plant back up and running.
