Gipocombi RC130FDR processes 4,500 tons of 804 production in one day!

14th August 2008

Aggregate Processing and Recycling (APR) of Tamworth UK have recently supplied a Gipocombi Rc130FDR mobile crushing and screening machine for a very high profile project in Ireland.

Currently operating in Galway the customer, a contract crushing company is engaged in supplying road materials for the construction of the new M6 motorway connection from Ballinasloe through to Galway City on the west coast of Eire.

As road building requires high volumes of 804 stone the company were keen to purchase a machine that could process high tonnages cost effectively and efficiently. After trials with other machinery from other very highly respected manufacturers, the company, amazed at the performance of Gipo technology purchased a Gipocombi Rc130FDR  from the UK and Ireland distributor APR.

The Gipocombi Rc130FDR has significant advantages over other machines as it utilises a system of combined crushing and screening in closed circuit, achieving maximum efficiency.

With fuel consumption significantly lower in comparison to a separate crusher and screen the machine has the advantage of much quicker set-up and movement times than when aligning two separate units.

Other major advantages include the reduction of loading and stockpile clearing activity, once material is fed into the Gipocombi it is contained within the machine until the process is complete, hence no extra work, or fuel usage on loading shovels handling oversize stone back to the hopper.

Maintenance is well catered for as the machine has only one engine and not two, and features less conveyor belts overall than the combination of a separate crusher and screen, resulting in less risk of downtime and lower service costs.

The Gipocombi Rc130FDR supplied for the project is driven by a Caterpillar C15 engine supplying 430kw in total allowing 360kw + to be applied to the crusher.

The variable speed crusher allows maximum variance on output grading; all gap adjustments are hydraulic and crusher inlet + top apron have hydraulic lift for blockage reduction.

A variable speed feeder supplies stone to a 2 deck pre-screen with scalping and bypass facility. Crusher discharge has the provision of a tray feeder as standard to absorb impact and protect the conveyor.

Final screening of material is performed by a 4.5m x 1.8m 2 - deck which includes an option for two products plus oversize, which can either be returned to the hopper or be stockpiled using the radial oversize conveyor which is capable of 180 degrees radius through a hydraulic system.

A screen bypass facility is also featured which provides an alternative if crusher-run products are required. This facility activates a door (approx 3 minutes operation) with all stone from the crusher discharge conveyor bypassing the screen and fed to the final stockpile conveyor.

An extremely strong and reliable Gipo drive system is powered by minimal electrics utilising only 24v where applicable. Historically, the Gipo hydraulic system has proven to be far more reliable as a drive system than other alternatives whilst at the same time providing extremely high torque and drive to the crusher at all speeds to give extremely high performance.

The company who are extremely happy with the Gipocombi Rc130FDR have seen the combination of high performance and significant machine advantages provide them with the greatest potential profitable earning capacity - in one shift alone 4,500 tons of 804 material has been produced from the Gipocombi!
