Crushing and screening on-site allow the job to be self-reliant and to eliminates hauling and dumping fees, even in large quarries.
In Saudi Arabia, for example, a BF135.8 Crusher bucket (that fits excavators with an operating weight above 94,800 lbs) and a MB-S18 Screening bucket (that fit excavators with an operating weight between 44,100 and 77,100 lbs) processed inert material that was then reutilized for the construction of the Riyadh metro system. The same company managed to extract the material, screen it, crush it and put it to new use. All of that in complete autonomy while extensively cutting costs.
Creating profit from waste material
All inert material processed with an MB Crusher unit is quality material: certified and guaranteed to bring profit to the operation.
As stated by a company in Northern Italy, “With the MB Crusher bucket, waste material is transformed from “scrap” to CE certified material. We tore down and built back up a number of reinforced concrete pigsties with grated flooring. We didn’t have any issues with rebar; the MB Crusher bucket was paired with an iron separator. The resulting crushed material was perfect for reuse right there on the job site.”
The “restored” crushed material can be used as fill on the job site, new construction and other projects. It can also be sold on the market. Both solutions bring tangible and measurable profit to the operation. This was accomplished by a Swiss company, that used two MB Crusher products - a crusher bucket and a screening bucket - to create a complete recycling operation:
- volume reduction;
- material selection;
- reuse on-site.
“We wanted to find a system to lower our costs, allow us to reutilize inert material, and become more competitive all the while supplying our customers with the requested services. With MB, we can lower labor expenses, machine wear and consumption. All the while producing impeccable recycled material at a highly competitive price without interrupting the operation. This wouldn’t be possible with any other solution.”
