Screencore mobile crushers and screens help turn C&D waste into profit for a range of customers
STARLOC Auvergne are one of the leading dealers of mobile crushing and screening plant and equipment in France.With a history dating back to almost the beginning of mobile solutions, the company has embraced modern and advanced mobile crushing and screening supplying Screencore material processing machinery.
The advanced ranges have found a particular niche in France, turning construction and demolition (C&D) waste into saleable recycled products. Here, French demolition and recycling firms were quick to see how Screencore material processing and handling equipment could aid their business operations.
And playing a major part in the success of Screencore in France has been the company’s close working relationship with crushing and screening specialists Starloc. This relationship led directly to a number of compact Screencore XL tracked jaw crushers and Trident 124 screeners being used to recycle C&D materials. The attributes of the Screencore equipment have allowed French users to turn waste into high-quality aggregates and other valuable products.
‘The Screencore product range was developed in order to meet the needs of the modern contractor,’ said company director Ciarán Ryan. ‘We have set out to build to the highest standards of equipment that helps people in the field be more profitable, efficient, and effective in what they do. We have also incorporated environmental efficiency into every step of our processes to minimize our customers’ carbon footprint.
‘All this has meant that working with Starloc, particularly in servicing the complex construction materials recycling market in France, has seen Screencore equipment adopted at several sites, turning construction waste into reusable and/or resaleable products.’
A Starloc-supplied compact crushing and screening combination that has proved itself numerous times has been the Screencore XL Dual-Power tracked jaw crusher working alongside (before or after) a Screencore Trident 124 scalper/screener. The features found in the modern, productive, and environmentally friendly Screencore range have made the processing of demolition and construction waste a relatively straightforward process.
‘Quick set-up times, easily adjusted closed-side settings, fuel efficiency (dual-power) and ease of transport are just some of the reasons that have seen contractors and recyclers adopt Screencore equipment,’ said Mr Ryan.
The dual-powered Screencore XL is a 700mm x 500mm jaw crusher specially designed with a compact footprint. It has proved to be well suited to the modern demands of a recycling contractor, rental fleet, or inner-city demolition/recycling site.
The machine weighs 18,250kg (40,000lbs), which means that it can be easily relocated without the need for permits. It is also designed to be both environmentally and acoustically friendly, whilst delivering impressive throughput even on hard rock applications or concrete with rebar.
Once C&D waste is crushed to –100mm, the material is fed into a 17,000kg Trident 124 scalper/screener to produce: 0–25mm; 25–60mm; and +60mm products. In addition, any ferrous metals, such as rebar or wire, are easily removed for resale/recycling by an overband magnet on the XL jaw crusher’s discharge conveyor before being fed into the screener.
Due to the easily transportable and modern nature of the Screencore equipment, French contractors and Starloc have found a Screencore materials processing train can be readily transported and the combined set-up time for this crushing and screening combination is less than 30 minutes.
‘When we looked at supplying the Screencore range into France, the first company we spoke to was Starloc,’ commented Mr Ryan. ‘Through our relationship with them, we have been able to provide our compact, modern, productive, and environmentally focused crushers, screens, trommels, and stockpilers to contractors and recycling companies in France where and when they need them.’
