RUBBLE MASTER delivers compact crushing solutions for demands in London

Environmentally friendly crushing close to Camden Market.

Reducing noise, dust and emissions is the main goal of London Borough and its Camden Clean Air Action Plan. This also concerns construction and demolition work. Many demolition companies have found the mobile impact crusher RM 70GO! 2.0 the perfect solution for the legal and space requirements of very cramped sites like Camden Market, one of the biggest and well-known markets in the centre of London.

London Borough restricts machinery noise levels and aims to control the emission of nitrogen oxides which also concerns construction and demolition activities. By introducing Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) for non-road mobile machinery the regulations for demolition and recycling are stricter than ever.

It’s a big challenge for demolition companies who need to source machines meeting these requirements. With a construction site right next to Haverstock School one demolition company, a client of local RM dealer Red Knight 6 Ltd., was even more challenged as the accessibility to this construction site is restricted by the surrounding buildings and the demand for a highly mobile crusher within the limited space.

Besides that, the company expects a crusher that produces perfect final aggregate in one pass, that can be re-used immediately on-site. After research within the industry to find a solution for the project in Haverstock Hill Road, Red Knight 6 Ltd. recommended an RM crusher for this very special site based on their own very positive experiences.

Quietest impact crusher in the industry
Crushing in London needs to meet certain noise regulations, which is no problem for RM machines.

“Whenever I visit a construction site where a RUBBLE MASTER crusher is working I am again and again surprised how low the noise level of the machine is compared to other crushers,” says Paul Donnelly, Director of Red Knight 6.

With its noise- reducing design the RM 70GO! 2.0 is the perfect solution for noise-sensitive areas like inner cities.

There are many design elements within the machine that make RM crushers the most silent impact crushers in the industry, such as a noise-reducing engine compartment, engine mounting, optimised ventilation slots and many more. Test results of standardised measurements verify this: the average sound pressure level (Lp) is 80.6 dB(A) at a distance of ten metres and 60.6 dB(A) at a distance of 100 metres.

It took the RM 70GO! 2.0 only five days to crush the 4000 tons of material. As the final aggregate was used for re-piling on-site the delivery of piling material was reduced to a minimum and saved the residents from unnecessary lorry traffic – an additional element of how RM crushers protect the environment from noise, dust and other emissions. More benefits are provided by the typical RM drive concept which maintains very low fuel consumption, hence emissions and running costs are reduced too.

Great impact on little space
Its not only about making low emissions count, the output needs to be great as well. Again, this is no problem for the RM impact crusher: with an average throughput of 125 tph the job at Haverstock Hill Road was finished within five days. The high mobility of this outstanding compact crusher was also impressive. With a width of only 2200 mm the RM 70GO! 2.0 was able to drive through the narrow gateway into the site between two multi-storey buildings and turn around. Normally this would be difficult for a mobile crusher to navigate however the company knew that they could rely on the support of Red Knight 6.

“The RM crushers are very intuitive to operate which is one of the reasons why we love the RM impact crushers which also makes them perfect for hiring. With the remote control the RM 70GO! 2.0 is easily moved and requires only one person to operate the excavator and control the crusher, which of course saves time. Although it was not necessary on this site, crushing and moving at the same time would also be possible. It is all these ‘little’ things that make the difference”, says Paul Donnelly.

Solutions are RM’s success
‘Environmentally friendly’ is high on the agenda at Camden Market in London, where unique shops, stalls, bars and cafes draw half a million people a week into the creative inner-city area. It is an agenda that reflects the RUBBLE MASTER attitude.

The thriving RM Spirit stands for finding the best solutions for customers which includes thinking outside the box. “RM knows what the customer needs, they listen to feedback. But RM is not satisfied by only delivering solutions. No, they think further and design innovations. They want the BEST solution for the customer.

The RM partnership with its customers and its dealers is unique in the market. As this partnership is very important to Red Knight 6, RM as a manufacturer is the perfect match for us,” says Donnelly.
