Economic all-rounder

Use of the MC 100 R EVO at PTS Demolition

The jaw crusher MOBICAT 100 R EVO from Kleemann is a genuine all-rounder: it crushes concrete, asphalt and bricks, but also natural stone. Thanks to its compact dimensions, it can work in practically any location and transport of the plant is simple. Furthermore, the crusher is highly productive thanks to the well thought-out material flow concept.

PTS Demolition uses the mobile jaw crusher MC 100 R EVO from Kleemann. The company is thrilled with the performance and productivity.

Metal separator, CFS and large crusher jaws

A huge plus with the MC 100 R EVO is the efficient metal separation because Kleemann installs particularly powerful magnets in the plants. The Continuous Feed System (CFS) also ensures simple handling. This control system adapts the frequencies of the vibrating feeder at all times to the crusher level. This guarantees optimum utilisation and thus high productivity. The long, highly raised, articulated crusher jaw prevents blockages of coarse material and protects the fastening elements of the crusher jaw against wear. If a piece of reinforcement jams, the crusher unit is easily accessible and the blockage can be removed.

Impressive mobile operation in Great Britain

In Great Britain, the MC 100 R EVO is in operation at PTS Demolition & Dismantling Ltd. Managing Director Dave Gauja was searching for a mobile crusher for its wide-ranging demolition and recycling work. Up to now he had used crushers from other brands, but never a Kleemann plant. So why now? "A typical job for us involves crushing around 1000 m³ in 2-3 days. Then it is on to the next construction site. We therefore needed a machine that is easy to transport." The MC 100 R EVO meets this requirement perfectly. "Transportation is made very easy with the plant weighing only 30 t", adds Dave Gauja.

Sensationally low fuel consumption

The demolition and recycling company with its main office in County Durham had already used the crusher in various building sites and is enthusiastic – about the technology, simple handling and economy of the plant: they operate the mobile jaw crusher with a particularly low fuel consumption. "In this performance class the consumption is typically around 25 – 30 litres of diesel per hour. The MC 100 R EVO does not guzzle as much fuel. During our work operations, it only needed about 7.5 litres of diesel an hour. This is fantastic", says a delighted Dave Gauja. In this way, he can reduce fuel costs by up to 70%.

Lighting and dust reduction

Moreover, the work can also be completed at dusk or in the dark as the jaw crusher is equipped with bright lighting. Dave Gauja also integrated a spray system to reduce dust for use in residential and business areas – thus efficiently avoiding dust clouds and encouraging acceptance among the general public.

Unmatched customer service

Last but not least, the quality of the customer service also played a role in the decision to purchase. "We are constantly hearing from colleagues that the service provided by Wirtgen Limited, who support Kleemann products in Great Britain, is unrivalled and that the company provides a fast and reliable service with regard to spare and wear parts", states the engineer. "An advantage we will certainly appreciate later on when it comes to the fast delivery of wear parts."
