A Keestrack 1313S (R6) im­pactor is in­creas­ing prof­its for a Bel­gian re­cy­cling firm

Earthmovers & Excavators - - Product News -

The diesel-hy­draulic Keestrack 1313S (R6) im­pact crusher and screen­ing unit’s mo­bil­ity and through­put of 300 tonnes/hour have proved to be game-chang­ers for a Bel­gian re­cy­cling com­pany.

Head­quar­tered in In­gel­mun­ster, a town close to the city of Kor­trijk and the French bor­der, the Bel­gian Mon­seré group is involved in earth­work­ing, de­mo­li­tion work and the re­cy­cling of build­ing ma­te­ri­als, de­mo­li­tion waste and or­ganic mat­ter. The com­pany’s re­cy­cling depart­ment, Mo­varec, is re­spon­si­ble for the mo­bile re­cy­cling of con-struc­tion and de­mo­li­tion waste on Mon­seré con­struc­tion sites and cus­tomer projects.

The re­cy­cling com­pany also op­er­ates a break­ing yard for build­ing rub­ble, class A and B tim­ber and green waste in Veurne in the province of West Flan­ders, not far from the coast.

The com­pany has a work­force of six, who to­gether process up to 600,000 tonnes of build­ing waste each year. The break­ing yard oc­cu­pies al­most 1ha of land and pro­duces around 70,000 tonnes of high-grade re­cy­cling gran­u­late.

At the end of 2016, Mo­varec re­placed its 70-tonne im­pact crusher unit with a diesel­hy­draulic ver­sion of the Keestrack R6 (1313S).

Fully equipped, the ma­chine com­prises of a du­aldeck pre-screener and a dou­ble-deck post-screen mod­ule with a 1300-series crusher (which has an in­let size of 1300 x 970mm and a ro­tor weight of 6.1 tonnes).

De­spite this, the unit barely weighs more than 61 tonnes and, un­like its pre­de­ces­sor at Mo­varec, can be trans­ported on a low-loader with­out hav­ing to dis­as­sem­ble the af­ter-screen mod­ule. Mo­varec says this has sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved mo­bil­ity, short­ened down­time and guar­an­teed the prof­itabil­ity of the large crusher, which has a ca­pac­ity of 300 tonnes per hour, even in the case of medium-sized process vol­umes.
