The brothers Geert and Philippe Michiels have lots of experience with crushers, they knew exactly what they wanted to buy.
Bart Hebbrecht, CEO of Twin Trading - Rockster’s Belgian dealer - sold the new crusher to the entrepreneurs, he says: “I had some conversations with Michiels to identify their needs, and we all were very fast convinced that the Rockster impact crusher R900 is exactly the right crusher for them. It is a flexible machine, hydrostatic driven, no unnecessary frills and electronics, just crushing!”
Easy and quick production of perfectly defined grain
With their new R900 crusher they produce mainly 0-40mm final grain, used for road construction and different base layers. With the screening system mounted directly on their R900 crushing plant it’s easy for Michiels to produce 100% defined final grain in a single work process. That was a very important factor for their purchasing decision.
Well proven technology guarantees reliability and helps reducing costs
Another essential feature for Michiels to be convinced of the R900 was the easy adaptation of the rotor speed, so they can optimally adjust their required screening curve and easily produce exactly the grain they need.
Moreover, the hydrostatic drive guarantees a constant crushing performance and the diesel engine stays within the optimum speed range. This helps reducing the diesel consumption per ton of produced material significantly. Besides, this drive system needs no clutch, which eliminates the wear costs.
Darüber hinaus garantiert der hydrostatische Antrieb eine konstante Brechleistung und der Dieselmotor bleibt im optimalen Drehzahlbereich. Dies trägt dazu bei, den Dieselverbrauch pro Tonne produzierten Materials deutlich zu reduzieren. Außerdem benötigt dieses Antriebssystem keine Kupplung, wodurch die Verschleißkosten dafür entfallen.
