Quarries and recycling companies look for equipment that operates economically, sustainably, and as emission-free as possible. Kleemann uses innovative technical solutions and comprehensive consultation to meet those industry needs.

The technical solutions related to process optimization include precise regulating instruments such as the innovative Continuous Feed System (CFS). It ensures that the feed material at the crusher is always conveyed with maximum efficiency through the machine. The fill level of the crushing chamber is monitored continuously, and the feed is adapted to the process. This optimized process ensures that material wear is as low as possible. Fuel consumption is also reduced.

Flow of material is integral to improving production and sustainability. Kleemann

The CFS is an example of how the complete process can be optimized by intelligent technology. Technical innovations, however, are only building blocks. Good planning of a plant train is just as important, if not more. Technical innovations can only fully demonstrate their strengths when all components closely mesh with one another.

To work effectively and in a resource-conserving manner, the machine must be neither too small nor too large. The pairing of crushing plants with matching tools is key, and screening machines, equipped with the ideal screening media, must be well-tuned to the process. Stockpile conveyors that offer a capacity matching the complete plant must be provided, and consideration of the capacity of the loading device also fits into the overall process.

Mapping the flow of a full processing train helps to identify potential problems. Kleemann

If machines are set accordingly, the power consumption can be reduced many times over. These optimized processes also reduce wear to the absolute minimum. This is important because, if components wear quickly, new components must be produced with a high material and energy input. Avoiding unnecessary wear, therefore, not only helps save money but also reduces CO2 emissions considerably.

Kleemann relies on comprehensive consultation with customers. Application advisers plan all processes. In the case of extensive processes, a flow chart (AggFlow) is prepared with which the material flow can be simulated in detail. The consultation covers technical solutions, in addition to information on how processes can be better organized. The custom-fit engineering of a plant train requires good planning software, but also a lot of experience and instinct. Kleemann therefore relies on technical solutions and support from experienced application technicians.
