The new GipoCOMBI RC 130FDR mobile crushing plant makes a further impression in Wales.

22nd November 2010

Following the supply of a GipoCOMBI RC130FDR mobile crushing and screening plant to Lafarge - Ewenny Quarry in Bridgend, South Wales in late 2009.

Aggregate, Processing and Recycling Ltd of Tamworth the UK and Northern Ireland GIPO distributor has recently sold a further machine to the Cuddy Group for immediate delivery.
The machine which was commissioned in August is producing single size aggregates whilst being operated as a primary & secondary crusher. The system will process high tonnages of "as-blasted" limestone into 0-5 and 5-25mm aggregates.

Recently exhibited at the Hillhead 2010 show the GipoCOMBI RC130FDR is a heavy duty, highly efficient machine of compact design which can be operated by remote control with a range of 200 metres. Driven by a Caterpillar C15 engine supplying 430kw in total, the powerful engine allows 380kw + to be applied to the crusher.
Featuring a dual-zone blockage release system (which can be operated remotely), the variable speed P130 impact 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 material to a 2 deck pre-screen (estimated at 20% more efficiency) with scalping at 0-40mm and crusher bypass facility. Crusher discharge is catered for with the provision of a tray feeder as standard to absorb impact and protect the conveyor. Final screening of material is performed by a 4.5 x 2 metre - 2 deck screen incorporating a 25mm aperture top deck and a 5mm aperture bottom deck. The machine also features 3 belt weighers, two for the main product conveyors (0-5, 5-25) and one for the scalpings belt.

To ensure optimum dust suppression the machine is fitted with a system including an on-board water pump which supplies spray bars at the crusher inlet / outlet and also to all conveyor heads. Additional features include aluminium covers on all conveyors, plus walkways and maintenance platforms around all relevant parts of the machine for easy maintenance.

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 also has the advantage of a 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.
