Waste-management firm bolsters materials processing fleet with QJ341 mobile jaw crusher
FAMILY-run recycling and demolition specialists Balicrest Ltd have shown their loyalty to the Sandvik brand by adding a new QJ341 tracked jaw crusher to their crushing and screening fleet.
Operating in London, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and surrounding areas, the company, with its 30 years’ experience in the demolition sector, has developed a well-earned reputation as one of the leading waste-recycling service providers in the region.
Balicrest also have a reputation for holding and using the most advanced plant and equipment across their fleet, as demonstrated by the company’s ongoing equipment renewal programme to ensure it does not operate dated machinery but efficient, front-line cutting-edge machines.
Balicrest’s decision to upgrade their materials processing fleet to Sandvik products is testament to the reliability, quality and high uptime that the new QJ341 offers to their customers within the waste-recycling sector.
The company undertakes a range of demolition projects, from dismantling single storey structures to tearing down large commercial and industrial buildings.
The nature of the work involved means it is essential for demolition operators and contractors to have the right equipment in place that delivers maximum productivity, reliability and safety whilst meeting the environmental credentials of the client.
The new Sandvik QJ341 jaw crusher has been designed to meet such requirements and for Balicrest, the machine will process waste material arisings from demolition projects into a saleable 6F2 product efficiently and cost-effectively. The mobile plant is fitted with a number of key features to ensure continuous, uninterrupted crushing and enhanced operator safety.
These include: a hydraulically adjustable jaw setting to maximise output; a reverse crushing action to relieve blockages; and a hydraulic drive allowing the crusher to start under load for optimum uptime.
The QJ341 is also equipped with upgraded Optitooth tooth jaw plates as standard, delivering improved productivity, longer wear life and reduced operating costs for Balicrest. Another standard feature of the crusher is Sandvik’s My Fleet telematics system, which provides live monitoring of plant performance, hours, location and other machine parameters.
