On-site recycling / On-site application
One of the main questions when it comes to demolition projects is “where to put all the material”? In order to minimize costs of transport and deposit of end-material some recycle it on spot and others might have to transport it from the demolition site. With Rockster on board, the previously mentioned costs are gone. For the project in New Haven, recycling on-site and reusing the final material on-site have proven to be extremely efficient as well as cost-effective solution. Not only are there saved costs, yet there is an added value in the very production of aggregate on-site. Recycled concrete with the feeding size of roughly <500mm (up to 20”) has been recycled to a 0/32mm (1 ¼”) final product and later used for new building sub-base. The Rockster R1100S, driven by a 380HP CAT engine in combination with hydrostatic drive system, was processing continuously about 1400 tons of material per day and the project took only one month to complete.
Rockster dust suppression system works magic
The demolition site is located in a residential area and right across the street from the school backyard where children play football daily. In these residential locations, a dust suppression system is a must!
“The Rockster R1100S was perfect for this job. It was across from a school, so the impactor performed great with the dust suppression system. No dust contaminates left the job site.” says Tim, Equip Sales operator who oversaw the project.
„Der Rockster R1100S war perfekt für diesen Job. Die Baustelle befand sich gegenüber einer Schule, dank des ausgeklügelten Staubunterdrückungssystem lag die Staubbildung merklich unter den erlaubten Werten,“ betont Tim, Equip Sales Maschinist, der das Projekt beaufsichtigt hat.
Extremely flexible & mobile
“Being mobile worked very well for moving across the site,” says Tim. When it comes to Rockster, one of its main advantages is compact size which makes it extremely mobile. Along with its compact dimensions and weight, it makes the transport from one job site to another very economical and productive. This was the case with this project where the crusher needed to move and due to its track-mounted system and a radio remote control it is like operating a toy.
