Rockster live demonstrationPublished 15/11, 2017 at 17:19
On 30 September Equip Sales and Leasing, of North Haven, Connecticut hosted a crushing demonstration day at their sister company Modern Materials in Hamden Connecticut that included the introduction of eight different Rockster machines.
Equip Sales and Rockster are linked by a longstanding partnership on the East Coast. “We have been working together with Rockster since 2009 and have sold many units in the USA, and including a sale in Bermuda,” said ESL sales manager Joe Collazo. “Our clients come from different areas, and we wanted to give contractors an opportunity to find ways to spend what funds they have as effectively as possible. Vendors should be prepared to identify money saving aspects for their products and services. This was the perfect demonstration for construction companies, landscapers, concrete companies and aggregate recycling and road building companies.”
Rockster shipped eight different units to the demonstration including Impactor R700S, R1000S and R1100DS; Finishing screen RDS410; Scalping Screen RSS410 and RSS514 and Stacker RST18 and RST23.
All impactors at the demonstration offer Rockster’s patented closed-circuit system with the removable screen box and the double functional return/stockpile conveyor. These accessories allow the crushing of material in one pass for high quality grain without further crushing or screening. With the finishing and scalping screens Rockster can provide a wide range of recycling possibilities or processing options. By using a Rockster crusher in combination with a stacker, productivity can be increased through much larger stacking capacity. “We wanted to present a big part of our portfolio, so US customers can get in touch with our products,” said Rockster Recycler chief executive Wolfgang Kormann. “In my opinion demonstrations and references are the most useful ways to promote products like ours, because customers can interact with the machine and get to know all features and different applications. The exchange of experience from different customers is one way more to get trust in our products.”
The first live demonstration of the new Rockster impact crusher R1000S in the US was a complete success. The self-monitoring plant has been designed to increase operating and safety comfort and includes a wide diversity of refinements. These include a gap adjustment for grain size adaptation, an integrated measuring system for full machine control and analysis, as well as a two deck pre-screener for a further grain fraction and increase of machine efficiency.
The R1000S has an inlet opening of 1016mm by 734mm, which allows for the infeed of large material and a high output for varying sized material at about 300t/h. Basic features on the R1000S include an adjustable bypass chute, vibration feeder with two deck pre-screen, vertically adjustable magnetic separator, remote control with colour display, electronic controller with colour display, sound proofing, a dust suppression system and crusher overload protection. The impactor came outfitted with the optional RS100 screen box and the RB92 double function return/stockpile belt. This system has a weight of about 35t, length of 14m, width of 2.8m and height of 3.2m. “I was excited to see the new crusher in action and all of my expectations were exceeded. I like the modern design with the diagonal lines and all the new features with so many extraordinary details,” said Rockster US representative Daniel Civinski.
The development of the R1000S was an important step to show Rockster’s ambitions for innovations. “By listening to customers’ requests for more machine control, as well as higher operating comfort and safety, Rockster has designed a crusher that combines state of the art technology with long proven Rockster standards like the hydraulic system,” said Kormann. “We are sure that this was the right step and are proud that we could finally demonstrate our new plant to American customers.”
