Mobile impact crusher R1000S for recycling projects
Rockster's Swedish Sales Partner Niklas Johansson of Biocare Svenska AB, is responsible for introducing Rockster mobile crushers to Andreas Pettersson who is the Area Manager of Swerock Recycling. "High throughput of this compact machine, perfect transport dimensions and excellent access for maintenance have convinced my customers that the Rockster crusher is the right one for them" says Johansson. Thanks to the hydraulically lowerable screen box, the swiveling catwalk and the swivel-up doors, service work, maintenance and the replacement of screen meshes can be carried out quickly and easily
For a recycling company like Swerock, environmental impact of the machine is an important purchasing criteria. Since the company sees itself as an environmental friendly service provider and wants to contribute to the recycling of construction waste for the protection of raw materials and the reduction of waste, they also attach great importance to the ecological footprint of the Rockster R1000S impact crusher. Thanks to the hydrostatic drive, which ensures a constant crushing power, the diesel consumption per tonne is noticeably reduced. Johannson explains: "With Rockster's hydrostatic system, the diesel engine always stays in the optimal RPM range, only the hydraulic pump adapts to the crusher's power requirements, which results in lower fuel consumption per tonne of final material." Additionally the Volvo Tier4f engine, with AdBlue, ensures very low NOx emissions.
Processing of Asphalt and Concrete
The R1000S at Swerock is mainly utilized for recycling of demolition debris. Concrete is crushed to 0-70mm in order to be used again for underfilling in construction. Recycling of used asphalt is another application for Rockster crusher where a final grain size is usually set within 0-16 mm. "Thanks to the screening system, the final grain can be precisely defined and no oversize material is produced. This way we can achieve the maximum added value in our recycling process, " says Johansson.
