EVOQUIP launch event showcases latest models to the U.S. market

Cobra 230R impact crusher, Colt 1000 scalping screen and Cobra 290 impact crusher on demo November 8

EvoQuip made an impact on the US market with a successful Open Event on November 8th 2018. Over 100 dealers and new and existing customers made the trip to Cave City, Kentucky to see live working demonstrations of the compact crushing and screening range. 

A customer of Powerscreen Crushing and Screening for five years, Park City Stone was the ideal site to showcase the world class equipment. Park City Stone is growing year on year and prides itself on being local and supplying to the small contractor and local community. 

Commenting on the success of the open day, Matt Dickson, EvoQuip Global Product Line Director said: "We had a fantastic launch event to the US market and I'd like to thank everyone who came by. The show was a huge success and we built on and created some valuable relationships. A special thanks to Chad Crabtree for allowing is to use his site and for all his help leading up to and during the open event. I'd also like to thank Powerscreen Crushing and Screening who have been instrumental in the planning and execution of this event."

Machines on demo were the Cobra 230R impact crusher, Colt 1000 scalping screen and Cobra 290 impact crusher. The Bison 280 Jaw crusher was also on static display. EvoQuip says they provide a compact and versatile solution that does not compromise on throughput, and which can operate in the most demanding of applications including Reinforced Concrete, Recycled Asphalt, Construction and Demolition waste, Coal and Natural Rock.

Cobra 230R Impact Crusher
The Cobra 230R builds on the success of the Cobra 230. It is a closed circuit version which incorporates a 2.44m x 1.2m (8' x 4') post screen that ensures the required product specification is achieved with oversize material either being recirculated back to the crusher or stockpiled. The ability to quickly detach the complete afterscreen system including the oversize conveyor, provides the option of either running the machine in standard mode or transporting it separately.

Cobra 290 Impact Crusher
With throughput potential of up to 290tph, the Cobra 290 has quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the compact crushing sector. It provides class leading productivity, unmatched versatility and excellent fuel efficiency. The quick set up times, simple intuitive operation and ease of transport makes this machine an ideal solution for all applications.

Features include: Patented hydraulic overload protection system, two independent hydraulic controlled aprons, excellent clearance from the rotor to the belt; the short distance from the crusher outlet to the magnet, and the ability to hydraulically raise and lower the conveyor all ensure optimal material flow through the machine and optional vibrating underpan feeder, which offers complete belt protection in heavy duty recycling applications. 

Colt 1000 Scalping Screen
This latest addition to the EvoQuip scalping screen range is the Colt 1000. This highly adaptable scalping screen is able to operate in both heavy duty and precision screening applications and will manage the most difficult of materials. 
Featuring an aggressive 4.1m (13'6") x 1.22m (4') double deck screen, variable screening angle with numerous screen media options, broad fines conveyor, quick set up time and excellent discharge heights ensures the Colt 1000 distinguishes itself amongst its competition.

T-Link Telematics System
A number of EvoQuip models can be fitted with the T-Link telemetry system which provides the customer with real time information on the performance of their machine. Telematics maximises uptime, parts and service availability and provides factual up to date information from the field.

Composting Council Research Education Foundation releases report on soluble salts in compost

Composting Council Research Education Foundation releases report on soluble salts in compost

Compost contains a multitude of essential nutrients for plant growth, such as nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K), and can also be a source of organic matter. However, recent concerns and criticisms have been directed toward composts with a high concentration of soluble salts. Soluble salts refer to the amount of soluble ions, such as calcium (Ca2+), potassium (K+), magnesium (Mg2+) and sodium (Na+), present in compost. Soluble salts are measured indirectly and cumulatively through electrical conductivity (EC).

Goudsmit builds magnets for iron-free carbon black

Goudsmit builds magnets for iron-free carbon black

Goudsmit recently built two magnets to be used for the production of iron-free carbon black by a large European manufacturer. These self-cleaning, rotating magnets remove iron particles as small as 30 microns from the very dry, poorly flowing conductive carbon black used for lithium-ion batteries.It is essential that this product is 100% metal-free, because metal particles would change the conductivity. In this line, the rotating magnets process at a relatively low capacity of 1500 kg per hour. If necessary, however, such magnets can process at  capacities of up to 40 m3 per hour.

BASF making products with chemically recycled plastics for first time

Dr. Stefan Gräter and Dr. Andreas Kicherer showing a sample of pyrolysis oil and thus produced plastic in front of the Steamcracker.

BASF is breaking new ground in plastic waste recycling with its ChemCycling project. Chemical recycling provides an innovative way to reutilize plastic waste that is currently not recycled, such as mixed or uncleaned plastics. Depending on the region, such waste is usually sent to landfill or burned with energy recovery. But chemical recycling offers another alternative: Using thermochemical processes, these plastics can be utilized to produce syngas or oils. The resulting recycled raw materials can be used as inputs in BASF's production, thereby partially replacing fossil resources.
