A company wanted to reuse its waste ceramics and turn this production waste into valuable raw materials again. An RM 60 crusher now processes these highly abrasive ceramic tiles and waste ceramics. Some 500 tonnes are crushed every week in 12 hours with two shifts working five days a week. The entire material is crushed down to between 0-20 and 0-10 mm. The crushed material is screened; fines are put directly into production, medium-sized material goes to a hammer mill and the oversize material is put back in the RM 60. The benefit is clear to see. Thanks to the low operating and wear costs and the 100% production of valuable aggregate, the company made an impressive profit. A convincing argument if ever there was one.
Our crushers in action
The RM 60 is the most compact RM crusher and the ideal choice for processing smaller quantities for businesses which are looking to expand their activities and increase profits. Like all RM crushers, the 12 tonne model can also be combined with high-performance pre-screens and post-screens.
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.
