Sandstone

Quarry debris or sandstone is a type of material that comes in a variety of sizes. Installing an MB-S18 screening bucket on a Kobelco SK220SD, the coarse materials are separated from the fines. The result? Clean material that’s ready-to-use as either foundations for new roads or in the construction industry.

MB Crusher’s attachments are easily added to your fleet: thanks to the excavator’s hydraulic system, the units work on the machine that they’re installed to.

 

The importance of size grading in a quarry

Chalk

Compared to previous methods, using an MB-R900 drum cutter inside a gypsum quarry created smaller-sized materials. The small aggregates was suitable to be immediately sent to the stationary crusher plant and increased hourly production.

The finished product is sold as a base for plaster.

MB units can be used immediately and do not required a specially trained operator.

Copper

In a enormous open-pit copper mine, the BF120.4 crusher bucket and the MB-S18 screening bucket proved to be the best machines for the job. Installed on a Caterpillar 336D excavator, the MB’s jaw crusher works day and night to crush the inert material  before it’s screened by the MB-S18 screening bucket.

The material created is perfect to cover the holes that the explosives created. Now, the explosion is more focused and efficient. The larger material is then used to build the roads inside the mine.

The units are great for situations where high-level performance and a high production rate is a requirement.

Coal

In a large coal quarry in southern India, their surface miner can’t adjust its output size the produce the dimensions the quarry needed.

MB Crusher’s MB-HDS320 shaft screener bucket provided the solution. 

They installed the unit on the excavator and produced 55-66 tons per hour and reused it in the power plant.

MB Crusher’s attachments are essential to reducing waste and operational costs.
