Finished Bulk Aggregates of Burton upon Trent have recently purchased a Gipocombi RC2700C which is probably the largest highest performance tracked mobile VSI crushing and screening plant in the world.
Supplied by Aggregate Processing and Recycling of Tamworth, the machine is the latest addition to the FBA fleet who have successfully operated a Gipo RC130FDR on crushing and screening operations for the last 18 months. FBA, who are specialists in recycling, provide solutions for processing difficult materials to exact standards. The company realized that the new machine which combines the ability of a Magotteaux 2700 VSI with the Gipo Combi system would provide major advantages over conventional systems.
Weighing in at 78 tons the new machine has the ability to take a large feed size at up to 400 tph throughput, which combined with a 9m², 2-deck screen makes the machine a one piece processing plant capable of successfully processing many materials to produce optimum quality single size products.
Material such as rail ballast can be produced to a high quality single size, bottle bank material to 0-4mm, and oversize gravels to make sands. Additionally, the machine has the ability to take a 180mm feed size which enables the machine to be used on hard stones as a secondary crusher to follow a jaw crusher, where traditionally two cone crushers and two screens may be required to achieve the same results.
Offering much lower energy consumption than traditional systems the RC2700C is powered by a 440kw Cat C15 power pack with fully hydraulic variable speed drive system and full radio control.
