Adding further processing power to their business Finished Bulk Aggregates have recently purchased a new Gipocombi RC150c. Supplied by Aggregate, Processing and Recycling of Tamworth the machine is the latest addition to their increasing fleet of Gipo mobile crushing plant.
FBA, who are specialists in recycling, provide solutions for processing difficult materials to exact standards. The company realized that the new machine would provide maximum flexibility in processing a wide variety of materials such as concrete blocks, roof tiles, glass and asphalt.
Currently engaged on a contract in Oxford the machine is processing light weight reject breeze blocks supplied from a stockpile at a local block plant down to 0-8mm.
Weighing in at 84.5 tons the new machine has been specifically designed to achieve a transport weight of no more than 85 tonnes.
The Gipo R150C is built to a high specification with a capacity of up to + 650 tph. A tracked heavy-duty one-piece chassis carries a P150 impact crusher - 1.5m wide, including fully remote control hydraulic adjustment, hydraulic blockage release system and full radio control.
Material is fed into the hopper which has a capacity of 10m³. The feed then passes into the P150 crusher, then onto the under feeder and conveyed to the large 5m x 2m double-deck screen. Finest material is conveyed to stockpile and middle size material is conveyed laterally to stockpile; oversize is either returned to the hopper/crusher or radially to stockpile.
Dust suppression is also efficiently covered by an on-board tank supplying pumped water to various sprays.
The R150C is powered by a Caterpillar C18 engine and comes complete with fully hydraulic variable speed drive to all components including the crusher.
