Rockster offers live demos at IFAT 2018
The Austrian company Rockster Recycler GmbH shows the future in crushing and screening technology at this year's IFAT show (open-air area, level with hall B6).
"Innovative technologies presented in a compact and modern design," as documented in the company's philosophy, are demonstrated live on site. Starting with concrete demolition material, and resulting in six different salable products using the impact crusher R1000S and the screening plant RTS514.
The highlight of the Rockster booth will be the recently developed mobile track-mounted impact crusher, the R1000S. With the patent-protected double functional return belt and the DUPLEX-system, not yet available, which allows for a wider range of applications by interchanging the crusher units, the R1000S represents the future of professional crushers, according to Rockster.
The versatile setting options ensure excellent final grain quality. The double deck pre-screen with a screen mesh produces an additional salable product.
The hydraulically and vertically adjustable magnetic separator, the hydraulically lowerable screen box and the swiveling catwalk guarantee a great ease of operation and maintenance. The up-and-over lift system of the side and back doors makes access easy and saves space.
The technical highlights are a stepless variable, fully hydraulic gap adjustment with integrated measuring system as well as the automatic load-dependent, stepless regulation of the conveying speed and a new fixed hammer. The newly developed central control- and operating-system, with a multi-functional colour display and the auto start and stop function, provides increased operating and safety comfort.
Because of the compact transport measurements – length 10.1 m/33.2 feet, width 2.55 m/8.4 feet and height 3.2 m/10.5 feet – and the weight of 30.4 tons/67,000 pounds, it is possible to transport the Rockster R1000S without any special authorization.
It takes just 10 minutes to unload the impact crusher and put it into operation. If the transport includes the optional screening system the dismantling of the return belt and screen box is not necessary. It is also possible to transport the machine with screening system without a special permit because of the transport measurements – length of 14.0 m/46.0 feet, width of 2.83 m/9.3 feet and height of 3.2 m/10.5 feet. Weight is 34.9 tons/77,000 pounds.
The mobile, track-mounted 3-deck screening plant, RTS514, is an example from the Rockster screen range also demonstrated at the fair. The machine guarantees high performance and maximum mobility with optimal dimensions.

With an Acculoader automatic loading system, even smaller yards can take advantage of surging overseas demand for containerized scrap metal
Traditionally, recyclers across Canada have sent a huge percentage of their recovered scrap metal to Hamilton, Ontario, or Pennsylvania in the U.S., via open-top rail cars and truck trailers. The scrap is then melted down and turned into new steel. This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
