Economical all-rounder: Use of Kleemann MC 100 R EVO jaw crusher at PTS Demolition
The MOBICAT MC 100 R EVO jaw crusher from Kleemann is a true all-rounder: It crushes concrete, asphalt and brick, as well as natural stone. The location can be selected as required because the plant is easy to transport and can be erected almost everywhere. In Great Britain the first MC 100 R EVO has been in operation for a few weeks now at PTS Demolition & Dismantling Ltd. The demolition and recycling company with its head office in Durham County has already used the crusher on various construction sites and is impressed – with the technology, the simple handling and the economy of the plant: They are operating the mobile jaw crusher at a sensationally low fuel consumption rate.
Managing Director Dave Gauja was looking for a mobile jaw crusher for his diverse demolition and recycling work. Up to now he had used crushers from other brands, but never a Kleemann plant. So why now? "A typical job for us involves crushing around 1000 m³ in 2-3 days. Then it is on to the next construction site. We therefore needed a machine that is easy to transport." The MC 100 R EVO optimally satisfies this requirement. "Transportation is made considerably easy with the plant weighing only 30 t", adds Dave Gauja.
Metal separator, CFS and large crusher jaws
But he is also impressed with the quality of the crusher. A huge plus is the efficient metal separation, because Kleemann installs particularly powerful magnets in the plants. The Continuous Feed System (CFS) ensures simple handling. This control always adapts the frequencies of the feeder trough and grizzly to the current feed. The material flow is guaranteed, thus resulting in high production capacity. The long, high-raised articulated crusher jaw is also proving a big hit at PTS Demolition. It allows large parts to be processed in the crusher, prevents blockages of coarse material and protects the securing elements of the crusher jaw against wear. Last but not least, "it also facilitates access if a piece of reinforced concrete gets wedged", states the Managing Director of PTS Demolition.
Impressive reduction of fuel consumption
A real highlight is also the efficiency, or more precisely the huge fuel savings. "In this performance class the consumption is typically around 25 – 30 litres of diesel per hour. The MC 100 R EVO does not guzzle as much fuel. Up to now we operated the plant using only roughly 7.5 litres of diesel per hour. This is fantastic", delights Dave Gauja. In this way, he can reduce the fuel costs up to 70%.
Lighting and dust suppression
Moreover, the work can also be completed at dusk or in the dark, as the jaw crusher is equipped with bright lighting. A spray system is integrated to reduce dust for use in residential and business areas – thus avoiding dust clouds and encouraging acceptance among the general public.
Unmatched customer service
Last but not least, the quality of the customer service also played a role in the decision to purchase. "We are constantly hearing from colleagues that the service provided by Wirtgen Limited, who maintains Kleemann products in Great Britain, is second to none and that the company provides a fast and reliable service with regard to spare and wear parts", states the engineer. "An advantage we will certainly appreciate later on when it comes to the fast delivery of wear parts."
