Interlinked Kleemann plants are making demolition concrete recycling more economical in the heart of one of the most competitive markets for recycled concrete aggregate, New York City. There, new Mobicat MC 120 Z primary jaw crusher, Mobicone MCO 11 secondary cone crusher, and Mobiscreen MS 19 D plants from Kleemann are crushing concrete faster, to better gradations, than did existing equipment on the site just six months ago. Tracked equipment – not often seen at a permanent urban recycling site – also helps the owner expeditiously position equipment and stockpiles for optimum utility. New York Recycling LLC operates from an existing five-acre site only blocks from Yankee Stadium. "The existing plant was not efficient," said Eric Coppola, principal. "It couldn't keep up with the production we needed to be cost-efficient, so we looked into expanding the plant to keep up with the pace we wanted." Coppola and his brother Paul found the Kleemann line at their long-time distributor, Edward Ehrbar, Inc. While the site is large for its location in the center of the metro area, the owners needed to accelerate throughput to serve its customers
and stay cost-efficient. "We need to get material in, process it, and get it out as fast as we can," Coppola said. "For every truck that comes in with a load, we want a truck going out with a load."tandard sizes of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA), plus select fill, on a 24/7 schedule if necessary. "Their reliability, speed of production, and quality of product is phenomenal," Coppola said. "The equipment does a great job of separating and crushing to the right gradation. We test our gradations consistently, and they are right on the mark." NY Recycling also has benefited from Kleemann's remarkable fuel economy. "We never understood the potential magnitude of the savings until we got them going," Coppola said. "Instead of burning 10 gallons compared to the existing plant or the competition, they're burning five or four, and doing that every day. It's a real eye-opener." The jaw's independent prescreen removes all dirt out of the product, keeping it out of the circuit while creating another product. "We have the prescreen set at 1 1/2-in.-minus, which gives us a salable product, a soil-based New York State structural fill for backfill," Coppola said.
