Coke Crushers

The firm introduced two cast iron coke crushers before First World War, which they sold upto the Second World War. These crushers, one self-supporting on a stand (No. 310A) and the other wall mounted (No. 311A) were targeted at users of the firm’s Loughborough boiler and a third-party Baseco boiler thee firm sold for a short period. These boilers worked best when used with coke about the size of walnuts, which the crushers were specifically designed to produce.
