Why Mobile Rock Crushers Are the Future of Aggregate ProcessingUncategorized
You’ve heard the saying “time is money,” which is true in just about every industry, including the construction industry. For example, clearing out a jobsite for a major renovation takes time to move concrete and other building materials to prep the site. Anything that is removed from the jobsite has to be hauled away.
Suppose you want to recycle and reuse concrete or other building materials to reduce renovation costs and make the new building more eco-friendly? Again, unless you have an onsite solution, you have to take time to have those items moved to a processing facility, sorted, recycled, and hauled back to the job site.
For instance, with concrete, you have to haul it to a concrete crushing plant to have it recycled. Once it is crushed, then the aggregate producer ships it back to your job site. However, what if there was an easier way to recycle concrete without all that time and money spent to haul it offsite, recycle it, and ship it back? Well, there is, with a mobile rock crusher.
What Is a Mobile Rock Crusher?
A mobile rock crusher is a machine that is able to crush construction aggregates, such as rocks, stone, concrete, and gravel. Instead of having to haul the materials offsite in dump trucks for material processing, you simply load them into your portable crusher.
There are different types of solutions for crushing aggregate onsite depending on your specific needs, including:
- Mobile Jaw Crushers
- Portable Impact Crushers
- Portable Cone Crushers
- Portable Sand Makers
- Portable 3-in-1 Jaw Crusher Screen Plant Combos
- Portable 4-in-1 Jaw Crushers, Cone Crusher, Screen Plant Combos
- Portable Crushing Plants
- Portable Crawl Crushing Plants
- Micro Crushers
- Micro Screen Plants
- Micro Impact Crushers
- Small Concrete Crushers
How to Choose a Mobile Crushing Solution
Each construction job can have its own type of aggregate crushing needs. As such, you need to consider what mobile crushing solution will be able to meet all of your crushing needs. In some cases, you may need to look at more than one mobile crusher to ensure you have a well-balanced mix of crushing solutions.
For example, mobile jaw crushers are the primary crusher used to crush large, heavy pieces of concrete, boulders, and stone. On the other hand, cone crushers are better suited as a secondary crusher further breaking material down into much smaller sizes. Finally, an impact crusher can be a better solution for processing asphalt and produces more rounded material for certain applications, such as the exploding decorative gravel business.
In some cases, a 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 mobile crusher may provide a wide variety of crushing solutions to suit your needs as they include greater capacity and a screen plant to sort multiple sizes of material all on the same chassis. However, take the time to compare what the portable machines can do to ensure you get the best high-performance rock crusher.
Why Perform Aggregate Processing Onsite?
There are several benefits you gain when you perform aggregate processing onsite, including:
You cut out all that time is wasted to ship materials offsite for processing and wait for them to be returned when you are reusing them. Not to mention, there can be downtime while you wait. Instead, you know how fast you can process materials on site. As a result, you can keep your construction project moving along and avoid delays.
Compared to offsite crushing, mobile crushing offers a more cost-efficient method for aggregate processing. In addition, a high-performance quality crusher will last a long time. They are also easy to maintain and durable, so your investment keeps paying for itself again and again.
Processes a Wide Range of Materials
With the right type of mobile rock crusher, you will be able to process a wide range of materials on site. Even if you do not intend to reuse the materials yourself, you can still process them on the job site and then ship them directly to your customers who want recycled materials.
Easy to Move
Portable crushers are easy to move from one place to the next. So, once you are done with it at one job site, you can move it to the next. Some machines are designed to move over a variety of terrains while others can be loaded onto a semi-truck trailer.
Easy to Operate
Many portable crushers only require a single operator and are remote controlled for better safety. The operator can stop and start aggregate processing quickly and easily with a simple touch of a button.
Creates New Opportunities
A mobile crusher doesn’t just benefit your construction business. It also allows you to provide onsite crushing services for other construction contractors who may not have the resources to invest in their own portable crushing equipment.
Furthermore, with more and more companies demanding green construction practices, you will be in a great position to bid on these types of projects.
Reduces Material Costs
By reusing aggregate and other materials you can recycle with portable crushing equipment, you have to rely less on new materials to complete the construction project. As a result, your overall material costs will be lower.
Good for the Environment
Reducing your reliance on new raw materials and natural resources allows you to promote your company as eco-friendly. Plus, you are doing something good for the environment at the same time.
Saves on Fuel Costs
With gas and diesel prices soaring, having an onsite mobile crushing solution lowers how much you will spend on fuel since you will not have to ship aggregate back and forth for processing.
Ensures the Future Success of Your Construction Business
As construction costs for raw materials and natural resources continue to increase, project owners are going to be looking for more cost-effective ways to complete projects. When you can offer mobile crushing and recycling services to reduce material costs, your business will be in a better position than others that do not provide portable crushing solutions.
