MB Crusher, with U.S. headquarters in Reno, Nevada, announced its new line of shafts screeners during bauma 2019, which runs April 8-14 in Munich.
“With this new machine we pushed our boundaries: it is packed with innovative features and technology. After years of testing, we are thrilled to launch it onto the market so that it can benefit the professionals and companies for whom it has been created,” says Diego Azzolin, the production director at MB Crusher, in a news release.
The new MB-HDS series is designed to adapt to a range of different working environments and select different types of materials with simplicity and speed.
Designed with an approach toward reducing waste and increasing the profitability of the construction site, the MB-HDS is the latest line produced by the Italian company. MB Crusher says the shafts screener is the ideal solution for those who have to process different kind of waste rubble, which can quickly be turned into re-usable and profitable material.
“We have created a machine [that] is capable of overcoming the various challenges faced every day by those involved in earth removal, excavation, demolition, recycling, agricultural activities and landscaping. The new MB-HDS series selects and crushes excavation and demolition materials, asphalt, coal, organic materials, wood, bark and light plastics. Also, it enables products to be re-purposed immediately,” Azzolin says. “It is possible to transform one material into another effortlessly any time you need to—this is the most important and useful innovation. In fact, with the MB-HDS Screening Bucket you can easily changethe rotating shafts on site in complete safety: just one person can do this in a matter of minutes. Our patented system keeps the rotating supports in place, so the rotors can easily be removed and re-positioned while the angular alignment is kept in place.
“For us, having developed this new system represents a breakthrough, and for companies, whether they are big or small, it means having a construction site that is always working and obtaining high-quality materials that can be re-used or sold, saving transport, dismantling and maintenance costs,” Azzolin continues.
MB Crusher says this is typically a complex operation, particularly because it is difficult to position the rotating shafts correctly—they must be synchronized with the power transmission systems and the rollers next to them—and because the support bearings must be replaced as well.
The MB-HDS screening bucket is available in four models with shafts suitable for the different material selection requirements and, as with all MB Crusher machines, they can be easily installed on excavators, diggers, mini diggers and loaders (from 5 to 35 tons) in order to easily access and move around work sites, construction sites, areas containing large pipelines, towns or remote agricultural areas.
Rotary shafts can be changed out anywhere, as they have a centralized greasing system and all maintenance tools are located inside a compartment of the shafts screener. Also, an engineered automated shock-absorbing hydraulic system reduces the discharge so that the engine, transmission components and the machine boom do not suffer any damage.
Azzolin says the MB-HDS units are designed to be multi-purpose, highly versatile and quieter to operate. He says the new system reduces noise levels by 40 percent when processing materials.
