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
RM 70GO! 2.0
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.
Crushing gravel with 90% quartz content
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.
Endurance in riverbed gravel
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.
High demand for crushed sand and grit
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.
Impressive RM V550GO! performance in Argentina
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!.
