Hurricane Irene left a trail of damage through the United States in August 2011. Roads had to be rebuilt quickly. Action had to be taken fast and a crusher which could be used for a variety of materials was called for. Mineral materials such as river gravel, concrete or asphalt were processed with RM crushers. The output of the RM 70 GO! and the RM 80 was between 500 and 1,000 t/day. The aggregate produced was reused directly on site to repair the roads. The customer was highly impressed: “The RM units were the key machines in this work. The benefits were numerous: high throughput with low fuel consumption at the same time, easy transport and rapid start-up. If you take into account the low wear costs as well, you can’t beat RM recyclers in terms of profitability!”
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.
