Published 19/4, 2022 at 10:07

Manufacturers such as Cams, Lindner and Kleemann are all offering new products to aid recycling on construction sites across the globe. Here’s the latest in mobile shredding, crushing and screening units for concrete, asphalt, building material and more.

BHS-Sonthofen introduces universal pre-shredder

The new ‘Rapax’ is designed for processing various metal fractions, commercial waste, industrial waste and construction waste. It is available as part of either the 15xx or 20xx series in three different sizes, with shaft lengths ranging between 1.2m and 3.2m. Two tool geometries are available, either the serrated ‘Bat’ shaped version or the sturdy ‘Janus’ shape. The tearing table is located below the two shafts, which can be used along with tools to determine the particle size. The electrical drive is available in different power outputs, with up to 400kW being able to installed on request. The central distance of the two shafts has been selected to ensure that the tools do not interlock. The design of the tool and the reversing control system prevent material from wrapping around the shafts or adhering to them. The machine is designed to ensure that wear parts such as the shafts and tearing table can be removed and replaced. The shafts can move synchronously, asynchronously and in reverse, with the Rapax being designed to shred material in every running direction. The control system makes it possible to select the appropriate programme consisting of different movement sequences.


Cams launches ‘Centauro’ APR line

Cams has launched the Centauro L 120.56-APR and Centauro XL 150.56-APR models, two mobile plants that allow for recycling of demolished road paving and the preservation of bituminous components. They feature an EU Stage V diesel engine which can be bypassed to operate in full electric mode. Centauro is a crawler plant which is designed to complete all recycling operations in a single automated cycle. The pre-shredding pusher system reduces asphalt chunks to help the primary ‘FTR’ shredder to process all the input material (inlet plates up to 1,000mm). The FTR acts as a feeder for the ‘UVS’ screening system. The oversize material is redirected to the secondary ‘CTR’ shredder which reintroduces the treated material into the screening unit through to a closed cycle system. The shredding technique features counter rotating shafts at low rpm. The range uses 4G which transmits machine status and production data to site logistics.
