Company introduces REMAX 600 mobile crusher for aggregates and recycling applications
AUSTRIAN crushing equipment specialists SBM Mineral Processing have officially launched their new REMAX 600 track-mounted impact crusher at a recent open day. Held at Hans Zöchling’s Ramsau Quarry in Hainfield, Lower Austria, the event attracted nearly 200 international visitors with customers and dealers in attendance from the UK, France, Germany, Greece, and Saudi Arabia to name but a few.
According to Helmut Haider, head of sales at SBM Mineral Processing, more than three years of intensive research and development has gone into the REMAX 600 impact crusher, setting new standards in process automation and paving the way for AI-based autonomous crushing.
The new mobile crusher – which produces up to 600 tonnes/h at a maximum feed size of 900mm – can offer up to five fractions in one cycle, thanks to its efficient pre-screening, triple air classifying and high efficiency magnetic separation, as well as optional single/dual/triple deck secondary screen.
A key feature of the REMAX 600 is said to be the highly efficient overbelt magnet with longitudinal discharge, which ensures high purity of end-products particularly in recycling. All equipment and side walls of the crusher’s 9 cubic-metre feed hopper can be hydraulically folded in and remain on the machine. This means the impact crusher can be set up rapidly on site without the need for additional tools.
As with all SBM machines, the REMAX 600 is equipped with a hybrid diesel-electric/fully electric drive system with optional mains connection. The drive unit consists of an EU Stage V-compliant 15-litre Cummins X15 diesel engine and a 553kVa on-board generator that feeds all electrical drives (feeders, screens, conveyor belts etc.) as well as the electrically operated hydraulics for the undercarriage.
Extensive testing carried out by SBM and cooperation partner Hans Zöchling at Ramsau Quarry and the latter’s adjacent recycling depots have seen average fuel consumption rates of 34–46 litres/h and average electricity consumption between 140–200kWh.
‘This SBM-typical consumption advantage was undoubtedly one of the reasons why the enthusiasm felt at the Bauma trade fair quickly truned into real interest and concrete orders long before the market launch,’ said Mr Haider. ‘In addition to our own dealers, the first customers have already signed up – we assume that we may significantly adjust our production plans for the REMAX 600 from next year.’
