Mobile impact crusher boosts metals recycling

By Steve Ducker17 August 2016

Belgian recycling specialist Gyro has put a new Mobifox MF 16 S mobile impact crusher into operation in Antwerp.

With a high-performing combination of plants from Kleemann, it processes slag, which occurs as a by-product when recycling precious metals.

Gyro has been worked at the Umicore site, where a total of 17 different metals are processed, for 15 years. As Umicore is increasing its capacity, Gyro decided to expand its machine fleet with the Kleemann crushers.

“With the combination of a MC 125 Z jaw crusher and the MF 16 S we achieve the best result with high cubicity and 30% content of fines,” said Gyro managing director Guy Kempeneers.

“At the same time we have an output of 350 t/hr.”

Thanks to the high performance of the MF 16 S, Gyro is able to produce higher tonnage rates in a shorter time, saving on operating costs in the long run.

Gyro already owns 15 Kleemann crushing and screening plants and the machine was designed especially for this recycling application.

Other useful options include a spray system for minimal dust formation, and an external power supply for low-consumption operation.
