Recycling demolition waste within a small, contained inner city environment can be a tricky business, especially if the demolition material has to be removed from the site. One recent demolition project in the city centre of Manchester demonstrated perfectly that not all waste requires removal from site. The customer reported the project had achieved an overall recycling rate of 95% with 90% recycled and reused material remaining on site for future construction purposes. These targets were achieved in large with the use of an RM 70GO! tracked mobile crusher.
The overall cost savings of using the RM 70GO! onsite over two days had been calculated by the contractor at £13,840.00 once the number of waste collection vehicles and fresh material delivery vehicles had been taken into consideration and the cost of the crusher rental deducted.
With two excavators working simultaneously onsite, the RM 70GO! was brought in once the building had been brought to ground level and the cellars fully excavated along with 20 tonnes of scrap metals and 12 loads of inert waste removed from site. The RM 70GO! crushed the remaining brick and concrete onsite, over a period of two days, producing approx. 600 tonnes of 50mm down crushed aggregate per day.
Our crushers in action
The RM 70GO! 2.0 conjures up to 150 t/h cubic high-quality grain from rubble, asphalt, concrete and natural rock. As a mobile crusher, it is the ideal machine for companies which have discovered recycling as a new and profitable line of business. Easy, compact and powerful.
Crushing at a high output and low wear, and that in every possible and impossible location, is not an issue for RM crushers. They manage to generate the highest quality value grain from natural stone on site. Depending on the desired combination of machinery. The end result is always cubic aggregate.
Quartz gravel, granite and riverbed gravel are not easy to process because high levels of quartz cause high wear. However, RM crushers are designed for such materials: thanks to their compact size they can achieve high throughputs even in tight spaces, producing valuable aggregate directly on site at all times.
Demolition work and mobile recycling have been part of Manfred Schrefler’s range of services since 2016; previously he was known primarily for transport and earthwork. In terms of machinery, the Upper Austrian relies on top quality and always has the very latest technology.
Crushed basalt is used for a variety of purposes. Most often, it is crushed to be used as an aggregate in construction projects.
In Mexico the RM 100GO! replaces a jaw and cone crusher combination. Basalt with a diameter of up to 500 mm is crushed into different sizes of cuboid final aggregate, which is then reused for asphalt production. Final aggregate grades between 0-19 and 0 25 mm are processed to a high standard without any problems.
The first mobile RM crusher in Gorontalo, Indonesia, has been in operation since spring 2017. The new RM 70GO! 2.0 replaces several machines at once: instead of using the jaw crusher combined with a cone crusher, this mobile crusher unit processes extremely hard river basalt in a single pass.
