Mills can be supplied from a standard range or manufactured to meet particular specifications. When it comes to milling and grinding samples -  it is difficult to find a better range than Glen Creston.

Glen Creston - ‘Leaders in Size Reduction’ have improved the design and function of their Roller Crusher.

It can be supplied with a new control box with PLC which allows remote monitoring and control of the crusher in process applications.

The largest single shaft unit is now 800mm long by 500mm wide internally and designed for crushing lump coal up to 250mm. High temperature versions are available for crushing power station ash at up to 250 degrees centigrade

This rugged, slow-running mill is equipped with either a single or double roller shafts fitted with crushing cams which rotate between crushing and stripping combs. Different shaped crushing elements are available depending on material.

A robust and dependable high capacity jaw crusher suitable for large laboratory and plant applications. The JC5000 is the largest model in the Essa range of proven and reliable heavy – duty jaw crushers. The JC5000 finds general application in a variety of operating environments. It readily accepts soft to very hard ore, rock and large industrial particulate up to 85% of its 300mm x 500mm jaw opening. This is a heavy duty machine suitable for use in a continuous or large batch operating environment.

Typical applications will include primary crushing or large lump ore in sampling stations and pilot plants, the pre-crushing of materials being prepared for analytical or metallurgical laboratory use and in industrial production facilities.


  • Reduced capital cost: flexibility of use allows for continuous or batch use in laboratory and plant applications.
  • Primary crushing application: 500mm x 300mm jaw opening accepts large input feed size up to 250mm.
  • Increased productivity: high reduction ratio, with 30mm product size, results in faster and more efficient crushing with reduced process stages.
  • High throughput: fast and powerful crushing at 15 tonnes per hour throughput.
  • Increased availability: designed with a mechanically simple single toggle that is reliable and easy to maintain and repair.
  • Improved quality: easy and fast jaw gap adjustment provides good control of product sizing while minimising downtime and labour service requirements. 


The Gy-Ro Mill has been designed with a unique mechanism enabling the optimum amplitude setting to be set for different materials. Amplitude adjustment ensures the best possible results as it can be set to meet the special characteristics of the feed material and the fineness required. The setting also controls the wear rate and consequent degree of contamination from the grinding dish.

A further advantage of the design of the machine is that it provides a smooth horizontal grinding action with minimal vertical vibration. The puck and rings are larger than the conventional types used in other machines and consequently they avoid bouncing off the lid and base of the dish minimizing excessive wear and unnecessary contamination.

The Gy-Ro Mill is particularly suitable for sample preparation for XRF, XRD and AA analysis. It is excellent for sample processing for geological/mineral assay work and can also be used for the preparation of chemicals, cement, glass, soil, ceramics, ores, dried plant, slag, paint, minerals, pigments, coal, and chalk.

The Glen Creston Swing Hammer mill range is designed for light/medium duty crushing of a broad range of materials in batch, in-line and recycling applications. Available in cast iron/carbon, steel and stainless steel with a blower discharge option, this versatile mill is a cost effective solution for process engineers.

From waste glass to cosmetic pigments the swing hammer mill range will tackle many dry materials at rates of a few kilos to up to 1000 kg per hour, depending on material and screen size.

The mill features a 180º full width, discharge screen which is easily interchangeable once the safety interlocked top half of the mill is hinged back to give unrestricted access to the crushing chamber.

The durable mill body is constructed from cast iron with 12, 18 or 30 hardened steel hammers, depending on model. The hammers have four grinding edges which can be rotated in turn to give maximum life. The body hammers and screen of the gravity discharge model can also be constructed of stainless steel for applications such as food or pharmaceuticals where corrosion resistance is essential.


This compact yet powerful mill is designed for crushing and grinding all types of materials up to the medium-hard range within a variety of industries, including construction, environmental, mineral, chemical, agricultural and ceramic.

The mill is available with a variety of options including chamber and door linings in cast iron, chrome steel or stainless steel. Beater arms in cast iron or stainless steel and beater tips in chrome steel, stainless steel and low chrome.
Particularly suitable for: Chemicals, Soil, Coal, Plant materials, Grain, Glass, Fruit, Ceramics, Cement and Spices
Features include:
- Stand or bench mounted
- Simple Screen replacement
- Choice of liners/screens
- Adjustable beater tips
- Receptacle 5 litres
- Brake motor
- Door lock safety feature
