The event, held at Hempt Brothers' Old Hempt Shale Pit at 1164 Harrisburg Pike, showcased Metso crushing and screening equipment as well as a wide array of Caterpillar equipment.
"We wanted to have a Live Demo Day for our customers to show how the material is processed with the equipment we carry," said Tom Jamieson, general manager of Cleveland Brothers CB Con-Agg. "So, we put together this event along with some of our family members from the Caterpillar side and other product lines we handle and did a little ‘sell the house' at the same time, but with a primary focus on the aggregate side of our business."
The impressive equipment spread included a Caterpillar 323 excavator loading shot rock (limestone) into a Metso Lokotrak LT106 jaw crusher with a setting of 4 in., which was then conveyed to a Metso LT1213 impact crusher with a closed side setting of 2 in., which was then fed to two Barford R6536TR track conveyors, which stockpiled a 1-in. product and a 3-in. product.
Static displays included a mobile electric cone crushing plant with a 6x20 screen, which can be plugged into a generator system, and a Metso HP300 cone crusher.
Later in the day following the live demos, dinner was served to guests and door prizes were awarded throughout the day. CEG
