"The crusher bucket is very, very quiet, which is impressive for us here with radioactive material."
MB Crusher Buckets Processing Humboldt Bay Concrete Waste
Back in mid-2016, David Gilson was searching the web for a solution for the Humboldt Bay Decommissioning Project that his company, is involved in.
The BF90.3 is MB Crusher’s mid-sized crusher bucket designed for excavators weighing more than 21 tons. It is built for on-site processing and reuse of material without the need to transport unwanted material to be crushed.
MB Crusher’s mission is to provide a solution to assist businesses and contractors with the means to “create wealth and promote innovation” in recycling material.
With the crusher buckets attached to CB&I’s Caterpillar excavators, the company can process the concrete piles to a 3-inch minus within its facility. Then CB&I will take the crushed material to a waste disposal facility in Texas.
“One of the most important part is we needed to keep the dust down. It can control dust submissions, and [MB’s] spray system they attached to their equipment did a phenomenal job. We actually had a loader operating near [the crusher] and the loader actually created more dust than the crusher bucket during crushing operations,” Gilson said.
