For foundries, and for metallurgical industries, disposing of waste material is expensive. Tons of waste material needs to be stored, hauled and processed at disposal plants.
Some of our customers have recovered and reused most of the waste material and obtained a productive, economic, and environmental advantage.
By adding new equipment to their fleet: MB Crusher’s equipment. With MB’s crusher and screening buckets they worked directly inside the factory and repurposed materials such as cast iron slag and foundry soil originating from non-reusable molds and cores.
CRUSHING, SCREENING AND RECOVERING: IT’S POSSIBLE TO DO EVERYTHING INDEPENDENTLY WHILE ALSO SAVING MONEY.
The crusher buckets for excavators are quickly installed on the machines that the company already owns, and crushes inert material down to the necessary output size.
For instance, this customer used an MB-L200 crusher bucket. In a short time, the material is ready to be recycled. Compared to their previous jobs, they created high quality material without wasting any time.
On the other hand, screening buckets make it possible to select ferrous material and separate it by size, then you choose how you’d like to reuse it. For example, in this large recycling center, the MB-LS170 screening bucket separates ferrous waste by selecting the larger pieces from the fine material.
This prevents recycling plants from jamming or getting damaged, which results in downtime and slows down production. With MB Crusher’s equipment, the results are immediate: you recover and reuse most of the waste material and gain productive, economic, and environmental advantages from one purchase.
ADVANTAGES FOR FOUNDRIES
✔ Non-stop production: with MB’s crusher and screening buckets, material is recycled without downtime;
✔ No time wasted: everything happens inside the factory;
✔ Versatility: MB Crusher’s attachments are designed to crush and select materials in difficult sites, such as confined places where there are no access routes, or inside plants or complex areas, creating new business opportunities for companies.
✔ Reduced CO2 emissions;
✔ The entire recycling cycle happens inside the foundry: expensive costs are eliminated and traffic is reduced to a minimum. By cutting the need to haul material to disposal sites;
✔ Drastic reduction in waste: waste becomes a new resource that can be reused or sold.
