New Crusher to Aid Diamond Mines

The Jwaneng diamond mine in Botswana is the richest diamond mine in the world, producing roughly 14 million carats of gems a year.

When deepening excavations revealed a harder geological ore body at the Jwaneng mine, more powerful crushers were requested to reduce large rocks into smaller ones and differentiate the diamonds from other raw materials such as rock ore.

Instead of proposing larger models or crushers, which would have been a conventional solution, IMS Engineering modified the existing crusher’s design and technology to create the high-performance Kawasaki Cybas cone crusher.

The new crusher has a throughput capacity of 600 tons per hour, which means it is capable of cutting through the nine million tons of ore and 37 million tons of rock waste produced at Jwaneng each year.

The upgraded crusher is especially convenient because it fits perfectly on the existing foundation and exerts 50 percent more power than the previous model.
