Astec Mobile Screens to offer multi-frequency technology for all their 5-foot-wide, two-deck screens

Multi-frequency technology from Astec Mobile Screens was launched in March 2017 for the GT205 plant. The multi-frequency technology combines a conventional, two-bearing vibrator, traditionally used on an incline screen, with a high-frequency vibrator on the bottom deck. The combination of the two systems creates a screen that operates with a higher G-force. The increased screening energy also enables the multi-frequency screen to process material with higher moisture content. 

Aggregate producer's Trimble Loadrite scales are consistent and accurate in tough conditions

Located in the town of Merlin, in southwestern Ontario, Sykes Trucking & Aggregates Ltd was founded in the 1970s by entrepreneur Ed Sykes and is now owned and operated by his son, Don Sykes.

Advances in Crushing & Processing help cut production costs, reduce maintenance, improve ROI and raise output for producers

When you think about crushers, screens and other equipment for use in quarries and aggregates production, it might seem that there isn’t much more that could be done to improve performance, reduce costs, increase equipment life and reduce servicing. Yet that is exactly what is happening, as this equipment report shows. 

Equipment Focus - Mobile Impact Crushers

REMAX mobile impact crushers are designed to be real all-rounders among mobile crushing plants. They efficiently process reinforced concrete, construction rubble and asphalt, as well as natural stones, and can be used for primary and secondary crushing. Computerized diagnostics and digitalized controls make maintenance and adjustments to match different application conditions very easy. The basic design incorporates the latest diesel-electric drive system over electric-power generation. Benefits include:

  • Improved fuel efficiency with 30 to 40 percent savings; 
  • Reduced mechanical and hydraulic component wear; 
  • No hydraulic issues such as leaks or power loss at extreme hot and cold temperatures; 
  • Lower noise; 
  • Simple design, easy start up, easy transport and improved versatility; 
  • Operation in environmentally sensitive areas, underground and in tunnels.

The Rise of Mobile Impact Crushers

The mobile impact crushing plant is a versatile, track-mounted machine that can be used for aggregate production or the recycling of C&D material, asphalt and concrete. In this article, we focus on the latter. Product experts and Canadian distributors, representing eight global manufacturers, took part in an in-depth look at the mobile impact crusher of today, its evolution and future trends.
