For the past four years, the customer of Rubble Master (RM) dealer COVEMA has been crushing concrete and slag with the RM 100GO! crusher in a highly efficient and environmentally friendly manner.

With a throughput capacity of 150 t/h, the RM 100GO! crushes concrete and steel slag from 0-500 mm to 0-30 mm directly on site for eight hours daily. The customer, an expert in using and integrating recycled materials in road construction in Argentina, crushes concrete to reuse it to produce new concrete. In addition, slag is crushed for road construction and recycled to produce new steel. Thanks to the impact crusher, all the material can be recycled.

The RM crusher was ordered and put into operation over four years ago. It was particularly important for the customer to acquire a crusher suitable for various applications. The RM 100GO! can undoubtedly fulfill this requirement. The impact crusher enables the crushing of concrete from demolishing old, rigid pavements and recycling other regionally available materials, such as slag. The outstanding quality of the machine and the favourable financing conditions offered by COVEMA ultimately convinced the customer to purchase the crusher.

"Thanks to the extreme versatility of the RM 100GO! in recycling locally available materials, we can achieve the highest level of environmental commitment on the Argentinian road market," confirms the customer.

Slag is created during steel production and consists of mineral components and other elements removed from the metal ore during the melting process. Slag also usually contains iron, which can cause damage in the crushing chamber if the wrong crusher is selected.

The advantage with the RM 100GO! crusher is the RM Release System (impactor opening to remove blockages in the impactor), which opens if pieces of iron are present in the material being crushed, thus preventing damage in the crushing chamber. Nevertheless, large pieces should still be sorted out or pre-crushed before feeding, as iron parts that are too big can cause damage to the crusher despite the Release System.
