New RubbleMaster machine for Peter Bennie
RM90GO impact crusher produces high-quality recycled aggregates for independent quarry operator
PETER Bennie have grown to become one of the key suppliers in the construction products and recycling markets across the Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire counties.
Processing limestone, sandstone and ironstone, the company is heavily involved in recycling construction waste and operates a number of waste-recycling centres with sites in Boughton and Kettering. All waste material is processed using the WRAP protocol for quality and consistency.
Robert Jackson, director of Peter Bennie, said he had always been sceptical of smaller impact crushers, believing they could not deliver the same output and process as efficiently as a large jaw crusher could when it came to producing large volumes of aggregates.
However, this all changed with the recent acquisition of a RubbleMaster RM90GO compact tracked impact crusher from UK dealers ECY Haulmark. Replacing Peter Bennie’s 44-tonne Pegson XA400 jaw crusher, the new 24-tonne machine has already excelled its predecessor by producing a higher quantity and enhanced quality of single-sized products for the business.
The RM90GO unit has been designed to offer maximum flexibility with the capacity to produce up to 200 tonnes/h of recycled materials. Powered by a John Deere engine, it is also easily transportable on a standard low loader without the need for a movement order.
Where the RM90GO is clearly paying dividends for Peter Bennie is the quality of recycled materials and the resale of products, such as clean concrete/stone and 6F5, can command.
Mr Jackson commented: ‘I have been so impressed with the quantity and quality of single-sized material the RubbleMaster RM90GO is processing and supplying. The addition of the crusher has also added extra value to our equipment fleet. Overall, the RubbleMaster has convinced me to move away from the belief large jaw crushers are the answer to turning over high volumes of aggregates.’
