Family business Britaniacrest Recycling operates three sites across Surrey and West Sussex, and the latest addition to its plant holding is a Powerscreen Premiertrak R400 mobile crushing plant, sourced from distributor Blue London.
The Premiertrak R400 is one of a range of high-performance primary jaw crushing plants designed for recycling, quarrying or mining applications.
Britaniacrest’s crusher is processing around 3,500 tonnes a week of mainly hardcore, concrete and demolition debris from the waste stream which enters the company’s waste transfer stations. The crushing process produces a variety of sized and specified end-products, largely type 1 aggregate and 6f2.
The R400 features hydraulic release and a patented hydraulic crusher overload system, which is ideal for Britaniacrest’s recycling applications where uncrushable materials, such as tramp metals, can enter the infeed. The machine’s hydraulic crusher setting adjustment also provides total control of end-product size. Its output potential is up to 400 tonnes per hour, with excellent reduction capability.
It is user-friendly and economical to operate due to a highly efficient direct drive system. It is designed for easy maintenance and operational efficiency, plus tracked mobility on-site and a quick set-up time of typically less than half an hour.
Britaniacrest said that one of the attractions of the R400 was its transportability, which allows the company to make use of the crusher on any site, plus a high output and the environmental benefit of comparatively quiet operation.
