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.
Processing 24,000 tons of gravel with a quartz content of around 90 percent to produce 0-32 mm value grain
– that was the right challenge for the RM 100GO!. The mobile power pack with its wear-resistant hammers rose to this challenge in the Vienna basin extremely economically. Excavator and loader drivers are impressed.
Building roads to connect to eastern Mexico was difficult because of the problematic terrain. It was necessary to prepare materials on site because of the remote locations of the construction sites. The RM 70GO! is ideal for challenges like this. Its manoeuvrability make it a perfect machine.
The Swiss company Mühlebach AG has been successfully processing gravel for 40 years. As pioneers in this business field, they demand machines that are state of the art. They have now added an RM V550GO! to their fleet of machines in order to meet the demand for crushed sand and grit.
At the beginning of the year the RM V550GO! made light work of transforming 0-200 mm river rock into fine 0-19 mm value grain. The awesome capacity and low diesel consumption were key in the Argentine company’s decision to purchase the RM V550GO!.
