Premiere of new demolition and quarrying Allu Crusher in Las VegasPublished 21/4, 2020 at 13:03
Allu, the manufacturer of the Transformer and Processor ranges of material handling attachments, has introduced its latest development: the new Allu Crusher, which received its global launch at Conexpo/Conagg in Las Vegas.
This new heavy duty range of Allu crushing attachments is purpose designed to meet the requirements of the demolition, recycling and quarrying industries.
The global launch of the new Allu Crusher series will initially see three models be introduced for excavators in the 10t to 33t range. All have purpose developed features that ease their use and optimise performance, whilst providing easy maintenance in the field. Jeroen Hinnen, vice president of sales for Allu Group says of Allu’s latest development: “By bringing this new product line to market we will be able to provide customers with what they have been looking for. The Allu Transformer range offers unique productivity and efficiency benefits on soft rock and other materials, whilst the Allu Crusher range enables hard rock, and often troublesome demolition materials, to be effectively reduced. We look forward to seeing this truly customer focused solution reach the market which will further help quarrying and demolition professionals transform their business. The product will complement the Allu offering and expand the customer base for the company.”
Transforming the way you work
As well as giving the new Allu Crusher its premiere at Conexpo/Conagg, Allu also showed the latest developments from its Transformer and Processor series, which provide a business focus based on ‘Transforming the way you work’. This essentially translates into efficiency through the solution being a one stop shop process enabling the screening, crushing, aerating, mixing and loading all in a one-step operation. This also enables the transforming of profitability as less material goes to landfill resulting in less expenditure in haulage costs and landfill fees. Available in sizes to suit excavators and loaders from 8t to 160t, the Transformers facilitate the re-use of material on site, meaning that there is no need to purchase virgin material due to the recycling and utilisation of left over materials and the generation of an income from it.
Also exhibited was the Allu Processor which is a power mixer attachment which converts any excavator into a powerful and versatile mixing tool capable of penetrating and effectively mixing a variety of difficult materials. Materials suited for the attachment range from clay, silt, peat, sludge and sediment, to dredged material and contaminated soil. Fitted to, and powered by the excavator’s hydraulic system, and benefitting from its ability to reach difficult or soft areas, the Processor (also available in various sizes and capacities to meet customer requirements) is able to mix materials everywhere the excavator goes. This means that binders or chemical agents can be delivered to the area of the highest mixing shear by an attached 80mm diameter pipe and injected via a nozzle located between the mixing drums.
TS blade structure
All the Allu Transformer’s exhibited were equipped with the patented and unique TS blade structure which has been developed by Allu. The TS blades are a modern development for the screener / crusher market, aimed at delivering new levels of efficiency and productivity with the new blade variations. This new blade structure also will further enable customers to utilise their Allu Transformer in more than one way. The TS drums are available with two different blade types: standard blades for screening applications and axe blades when a crushing or shredding effect is required. Blade sizes available include 16-32mm, 25-50mm and 35mm.
