According to Italy-based MB S.p.A, the cleaner and more homogeneous the material obtained after a recycling process is, the more value it will have, both economically and ecologically. Being able to use inert materials of quality - or being able to resell them to third-party companies - is now a deciding factor for being competitive. It is precisely for this reason that having in-house machinery such as the highly productive MB Crusher screening bucket, which can quickly select any material that is homogeneous in size, makes all the difference.

Now available from Rockster, the new mobile, track-mounted R1000S impact crusher is a follow-up to the R900 model, and is designed to open up new dimensions in crushing, in applications including the recycling of asphalt, concrete and demolition rubble as well as the processing of natural stone. This impactor is designed very compact, so most applications will not need special permits for transportation, and units are based on a fully hydraulic concept with a heavy-duty rotor that provides high performance. Plus, an attached screen box guarantees high quality in one work flow. Using it's screenbox and return belt for defined final grain, the Rockster R1000S is ideal for producing concrete with a final grain size of 0/32 mm.

ALLU has introduced the new, patented ALLU TS® drum assembly construction, which allows customers in construction and recycling applications to achieve flexibility in performing multiple jobs with one unit, just by repositioning standard screening blades. Manufactured for the ALLU D-Series material processor attachment for excavators, loaders and other carriers - Allu screener crusher bucket frames - the core of the ALLU TS technology is the configuration of the screening blades that spin between the screening combs. The end product size is defined by the space between the combs, and different fragment sizes can be achieved simply by repositioning the combs. Because the screening combs carry most of the material weight, the drums and bearings experience less impact and load. The design of the assembly ensures the machine works well in wet and dry materials without clogging.
IROCK Crushers’ new TS-518 mobile tracked screening plant gives medium to large producers a compact, heavy-duty and easy-to-move finishing screen with a high output.

- Is the rotor drive direct-drive from the engine, electric-drive or hydraulic-drive?
- Does the model being considered have the capability to track (move) while crushing?
- Will your impact crusher be used in tandem with a jaw crusher or a screen plant, and how will product flow through your system?
- Would a built-in screen be beneficial, and what other options, including magnetic separation, conveying, feeders and integrated systems need to be considered?
- What type/quality are key components, including wear parts, hydraulics and electronics, and what is the type and quality of steel used in frame, crusher housing and rotor?
- Does the impact crusher have a user friendly design, with ease of changing blow bars, and ease of access for maintenance and servicing?

Husqvarna introduces the DC 200 drum cutter, a new attachment for the DXR demolition robot product line. The DC 200 is a versatile attachment made for surface profiling rock or concrete, trenching, excavating frozen soil, soft rock excavation in quarries, demolition and dredging. The 56 tungsten carbide-tipped picks on each side of the machine rotate and chip away at the surface material to the desired depth or complete removal. If the material is not completely removed, a smoother, more uniform surface results as well as smaller, finer grain sizes so material can be removed more easily or used as back fill without additional crushing. The DC 200 is suitable for use on restricted jobsites and sensitive urban areas due to the low noise and low vibration levels.

Zero waste programs are being implemented or considered for implementation across North America. These optional programs have the laudable goal of reducing or even eliminating the amount of waste going to landfills. But part of these programs’ requirements is that, besides no material going to landfill, nothing is supposed to be incinerated in waste-to-energy facilities. This would include C&D biomass. The C&D recycling industry disagrees with this requirement.
