How to separate aggregates from iron?
To process reinforced materials, you need to remove the iron first, which is often a complex operation and comes with several issues.
✘ Lengthy downtime when rebar damages the machines
However, there is a simpler and quicker way to do it: by using the carrier that’s already on site.
LET'S SEE SOME CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES
Demolish an old building
While demolishing a building from the 1930s, MB’s BF90.3 crusher bucket made it possible to crush all of the reinforced material, separating it from the iron and immediately reusing the aggregates as subgrade for the new parking lot.
The building from the 1930s used to belong to a church, then to a charity’s headquarters, and will now be home to a residential project that includes: 26 housing units, private gardens on the ground floor, and a shared vegetable garden.
There are numerous ADVANTAGES:
✔ Environmental; it promotes recycling and reduces purchasing natural materials.
✔ Logistical; reduce CO2 emissions by minimizing how often trucks arrive and leave the job site to transport debris or materials
✔ Economical; reduce disposal and transportation costs
Recover barn gratings
After attempting, and failing, to process the barn gratings with a track-mounted crusher and then a demolition grapple, our customer switched to the BF90.3 crusher bucket.
With the crusher bucket, the reinforced gratings were crushed down to their desired output size and reused. The iron was then extracted and separated from the pile of aggregates using the iron separator.
✔ No problems with the rebar jamming the unit
✔ The rebar was separated from the aggregates using the 24V iron separator installed on the bucket and was operated from inside the cabin
✔ They quickly finished their job
Disposing of reinforced materials is expensive and a complex process. However, when you use the correct equipment, reinforced material can be recycled and reused.
You can solve your problem by installing a jaw crusher to the excavator you’re using on the job site then reducing the size of the aggregates.
The rebar doesn’t jam the unit and is separated from the pile of aggregates.
There are several ADVANTAGES:
✔ Quickly separate materials directly on the job site
✔ Recover materials independently
✔ Eliminate transportation and disposal costs
