Everything New in mobile crushing and screeningPublished 24/4 at 10:20
A wide variety of brands are launching new products in the field of crushing and screening. A few examples being a starscreen from Backers, ‘next-gen’ equipment from CDE, and new stackers from Kleemann.
Three fraction starscreen from Backers
Backers’ three fraction starscreen can, as the name suggests, screen in three fractions, or four with bar or grizzly screen. Coarse fractions fall off in the front, while medium and fine fractions fall to the rear and side. The model can screen cohesive oil with a high throughput, according to Backers, and after a short modification, it can be used as a screening and mixing machine and for the production of stabilised and liquid soil. For this, the fine screen must be replaced by a binder container. Both the sieving, and sieving and mixing machine, are designed to be used for areas of 700m² or more. The excavated soil is filled into the bunker and screened with the starscreen set at 60mm or finer. The soil falls loosened onto the lower belt, is weighed by the belt weigher, and conveyed to the blending station. Based on the belt weigher, the binder is fed from the binder container. It is mixed with the sieved and loosened soil by a hammer roller, and remaining agglomerates are broken up. Only as much compound as needed for the application is mixed into the soil, which is usually 1%-3%. Less can be carried out onsite, in accordance with BBodSchV. An output of up to 250t/h is possible when producing stabilised soil, according to Backers. The screening and mixing machine generates compressed air with which the binder is conveyed from a storage silo to the binder container. When the soil-compound mixture is transferred, water is pumped into the truck mixer. The liquid soil is produced in batches, documented with a delivery note, mixed in the truck mixer, and then poured.
Lindner’s ’Urraco 4000’ Series
Lindner’s mobile Urraco 4000DK twin shaft shredder and the ‘Zeta Star 4000DK’ screen were showcased at the RecyclingAktiv trade fair in Karlsruhe, Germany. Lindner’s mobile shredding solutions feature location independent flexibility and application options, being designed to deliver results ranging from efficient volume reduction to the production of specific, homogenous particle sizes. The Urraco 4000 diesel models are equipped with a Scania engine, while the models with Abb’s e-drive feature an independent power unit which makes it possible to move the mobile e-shredder without a power chord. Different cutting systems can be used for various particle sizes depending on the input material. Since Lindner’s patented cutting system shreds particles to a homogenous P100 size in the first production step, the system solution consisting of the Urraco 4000 and the Zeta Star 4000 is used to archive particle sizes in accordance with classification P63 F5 in line with EN ISO17225-1. For mobile shredding, the service packages, ‘Shaft Reconditioning – Mobile’, the ‘Urraco Filter Package’ and associated services are available. The Urraco Filter Package includes engine and hydraulics maintenance.
‘CBF’ and ‘CBF-L’ crusher buckets from CM
CM’s new CBF and CBF-L Series crusher buckets reduce the volume of inert material directly on site. They work synergistically with CM's ‘CBR’ series screening bucket which has been renovated with the basket lengthened by 80% depth wise and increased in diameter. As a result, the surface area of the basket is increased. The CBF-L Series is applicable to skid steer loaders, mini excavators, and backhoe loaders from 3t to 12t, while the CBF Series is applicable to excavators and wheel loaders from 10t to 45t. They have been redesigned structurally, mechanically and productively to meet the standards of the market. The CBF’s have a lower structure, resulting in greater penetration force in the loading phase and better weight balance, according to CM. The mouth is wider, which allows the crushing of blocks with larger dimensions than previously. The eccentric unit has been revised with increased with oversized bearings, and the transmission and flywheels have been increased in diameter and weight to provide more inertia while working. In the new CBR screening buckets, the basket consists of interchangeable bolted grids, and the basket grids are produced from 10mm to 150mm. None of the models requires a drainage line, and all models are birotary with speed adjustment in both directions.
New developments from Screencore
Screencore has broadened its scope to produce a range of dual power crushers and mobile pugmills. The company offers a range of mobile – and now stationary – crushing, screening, stockpiling and pugmill solutions. “While our product line has expanded to encompass the formidable 237 trommel and the 30t Trident 165 scalper, our fundamental concept remains consistent: simplicity of use,” says company director Ciarán Ryan. “This is evident in features like hassle free transport, swift setup time, intuitive control systems, and distinctive design elements such as full-sized bottom decks on scalpers or augers within the trommel hoppers.” The Screencore Boxer pugmill for precision mixing, blending and dosing has been added to the Screencore range. As part of its development strategy, Screencore has also put together a global distributor network. “The team has been able to channel customer feedback directly to the design and manufacturing process to ensure that we keep abreast of real customer requirements.” Screencore is also planning future releases for the short, medium and long terms. “In the coming months we will properly launch our 30t ‘XJ’ dual power jaw crusher and other exciting new developments,” concluded Ciarán.
Kleemann’s new ‘Mobibelt’ stackers aid worksite logistics
Kleemann’s Mobibelt mobile stackers are used to improve worksite logistics processes. They extend the action radius of crushing and screening plants, making large stockpiles. In modern crushing and screening, machine operators have a strong influence on product quality and daily output since they control the input with their excavators and wheel loaders. Users also coordinate the final products by means of building up stockpiles, intermediate storage areas and loading. With the new Mobibelt models MBT 20(i) and MBT 24(i), site logistics can be organised and adapted to the respective situation. Both stackers are equipped with a 1.25m³ feed hopper comprised of ‘Kleemann Resistant Steel’, which permits the feeding of material with an edge length of up to 200mm. An optional hopper extension up to 2.5m³ is provided with an additional impact bar that prevents direct impact of the feed material on the conveyor belt. Thanks to the hydraulically adjustable feed and discharge height, the stackers can be used behind screening and crushing plants with different discharge heights. The stackers feature the ‘Spective’ operating concept, which offers support with a central operating position, local operation and the option of troubleshooting help via ‘Spective Connect’.
CDE showcases next-gen equipment
CDE showcased its next generation of waste recycling equipment at ConExpo-Con/Agg and launched the latest addition to its range of ‘Infinity’ high frequency dewatering screens. The range features no welds in the sidewalls, a galvanised structure, and a ‘VibroSync’ drive mechanism. The P2-168 Infinity screen, the largest model in the range, has a processing capacity of up to 750t/h and has been designed for the US market. The screen decks have a surface area of almost 17m² and are reinforced at the centre point, which serves to strengthen the screen and provide flexibility to produce up to six in spec products simultaneously, according to CDE. The company has also introduced its next generation of its ‘AggMax’ scrubbing and attrition system, which features a spiral alignment of its paddles that helps handling abrasive feedstocks, according to CDE. It combines feeding, scrubbing, screening and sizing on one chassis, and can produce different materials. AggMax 253SR features greater modularisation and improved access to pumps and other components. In other news, the ‘Counter Flow Classification Unit’ (CFCU) for density separation allows for separation of two materials of differing relative densities and features a variable cut (separation) point. The CFCU 300 is the biggest in the range and includes a dart valve. The ‘EvoWash’ sand classification and dewatering plant uses hydro cyclone technology to deliver control of silt cut points. The EvoWash 201 is one of the largest in the CDE range and is designed to process around 200t/h of feed material. The ‘ShearClean Attrition Cell’ provides contaminant removal through material scrubbing, and the DS120 is developed for high tonnage operations.
Keestrack releases new impact crusher, cone crusher, and more
Keestrack has introduced its new tracked mobile horizontal reversible impact crusher, I4e, for secondary and tertiary crushing. The design allows feed sizes up to 250mm and ensures end products of 0/2mm in closed circuit. Secondary and tertiary crushing can be combined in one mobile solution, and the I4e offers production capacities from 100 to 250t/h. The model features the ‘Zero’ drive concept, backed up by the drop-off engine/gen-set with a 447kW diesel engine and 300kVa generator. Electric drives for the crusher, feeders, conveyor belts and system hydraulics enable cost efficient and emission free plugin network operation, according to Keestrack. When metal is detected, the reversable loading conveyor reverses and the drum magnet separates the metal. The system includes a single deck after screen with a return conveyor for oversized material.
Keestrack also presents the ‘H7e Zero’ cone crusher, characterised by a height of over 7m, a total weight of 92t when fully equipped, a cone crusher of 26t, and options such as double deck pre-screen and a triple deck after screen. In case there is no electric plug-in connection, it can be driven by the M7 tracked engine unit. The model has a capacity up to 415t/h and is driven by a 330kW e-motor. Another Zero drive development is the ‘B7e Zero’ jaw crusher. Without an onboard combustion engine, the B7e is driven by electromotors only. The model has a double deck pre-screen and is equipped with a patented ‘Non-Stop’ system.
In other news, the R5e impactor is now available in full electric plug-in Zero mode and can be powered via a drop-off engine/gen-set unit. The model can be transported in one piece even equipped in closed circuit. The impact crusher is driven by a 200kW motor, whilst the optional double deck ‘precision’ screen can be placed in closed circuit, and the middle and fine fraction can be stockpiled as an additional option. The model can power other machinery with its plug-out functionality. The new M5 tracked engine/generator unit can supply connected Keestrack crushers, screeners and stackers directly with electricity in case there is no plug-in connection from the grid. The new electric tracked apron feeder A6 functions as a buffer with its 15m³ hopper and makes sure the following machine is evenly fed with material. Other news includes the K3 scalper and a K5 with ‘Bivitec’ screen, followed by the semi static electric S1e stacker, the two-shaft shredder P3, and the R3e impact crusher which has a double deck after screen, complete with the dust suppression cannons W4 and W7.
New hybrid scalper and digital solution from Rubble Master
Rubble Master’s new H50X hybrid scalper saves up to 50% on fuel in a hybrid crushing and screening train, according to Rubble Master. As a hybrid variant, the screen can be operated electrically whilst also providing modularity. RM hybrid systems are said to achieve fuel savings of up to 25% in stand-alone operation and up to 50% when linked together and are flexible thanks to modularly combinable crushing and screening trains. When a diesel-direct crusher drives the new RM hybrid screen, the customer saves up to 33% on fuel, and in combination with an RM hybrid crusher which drives the RM hybrid screen, the savings potential reaches up to 50%, according to Rubble Master. If only one engine is running because the crusher is driving the screen, the customer only has to refuel and service one engine. In other news, Rubble Master has developed its digital solution ‘RM XSmart’, which is designed to provide operators with an overview of all machines, receive machine data and save time evaluating the situation. RM XSmart is available as a mobile app and web app.
Micro crusher line-up from Senya
Senya Crushers has introduced its new ‘Micro Crusher’ line-up, described by Senya as delivering massive crushing power on a small chassis. In a press release, Senya writes: “Hardness of material is a non-issue on our Micro crushers. We insist on them being way overbuilt which has been no small engineering feat, fine-tuned over years of development and improvements. This translates into maximum productivity, durability and longevity, and low operation and maintenance costs which are literally negligible with our machines.”
The Senya 3 delivers a capacity of 200-300t per day on less than €50 in fuel, according to Senya. The move of production to the US has allowed for DOT approved VIN’d chassis, and the heavy-duty suspension and wheel upgrades allow the operator to drive on the highway on tyres rated up to 60kph. All of the Micro plant accessories (screen plants and Micro conveyors) run on a Yanmar engine powered generator, and Senya also offers a step-down transformer embedded in the machine, giving onsite 40A 200V and 20A 110V power for welders and electric hammers.
