Low-maintenance coarse crushing equipment for reliable results

The high-performing Essa® jaw crushers are fast and hard-wearing, and have been proven over 25 years. With that type of history, you know that your primary crushing requirements are in safe hands.


A comprehensive selection to suit your application

From the sampling tower to the pilot plant and assay laboratory there is a jaw crusher to suit your specific application and duty.


Cost effective and low maintenance

Uncomplicated jaw gap adjustment enables consistent product size and minimises maintenance downtime.


The crushers also have hard-wearing parts, such as the long-life roller bearings. These stand up under high load capacity – another factor to help decrease maintenance downtime and costs.


A key feature of the jaw crushers is the mechanically simple single toggle for extra reliability and ease of maintenance and repairs. This means the machine is available for when you need it most.



We appreciate that you put your operators’ safety as a high priority. This is taken care of with the Essa jaw crushers’ full drive guarding which complies with occupational health and safety requirements. The operating environment is also improved thanks to dust extraction points to remove airborne dust, having the added benefit of reducing sample contamination.

It has proven itself in exploration and grade control primary sample crushing in the minerals exploration and mining industries. It is also the industry standard crusher for the geochemistry laboratory, and is suitable for drill core, rock chip and grab samples.



The JC3000 has a much higher throughput and larger feed size, and is tried and tested for analytical or metallurgical laboratory use. It can handle large core and lump crushing, and is suitable for soft to very hard ore, drill core, rock and similar particulate.



The most powerful JC5000 is suitable for continuous or batch use. This rugged crusher’s typical applications include primary crushing of 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. It is suitable for soft to very hard ore, rock and large industrial particulate.
