Screencore crushing and screening train turns construction waste into profits

One of Europe’s leading dealers of mobile crushers and screens, Starloc Auvergne in France, runs in its product portfolio a number of compact Screencore XL tracked jaw crushers and Trident 124 screeners being used to recycle construction and demolition materials. With the help of the Screencore plants French users turn construction and demolition waste into valuable products.

“The Screencore product range was developed in order to meet the needs of the modern contractor. We have set out to build to the highest standards equipment that helps people in the field be more profitable, efficient and effective in what they do. We have also incorporated environmental efficiency into every step of our processes to minimise customers’ carbon footprint. All this has meant that working with Starloc, particularly in servicing the complex construction materials recycling market in France, has seen Screencore equipment adopted at several sites, turning construction waste into reusable and/or resaleable products,” explains Screencore director, Ciarán Ryan.


Modern and affordable crushing and screening power

A Starloc supplied compact crushing and screening combination that has proved itself numerous times has been the Screencore XL Dual-Power tracked jaw crusher working alongside (before or after) a Screencore Trident 124 scalper/screener. The features found on the modern, productive and environmentally friendly Screencore range have made the processing of demolition and construction waste a relatively straightforward process. “Quick set up times, easily adjusted closed side settings, fuel efficiency (dual-power) and ease of transport are just some of the reasons that has seen contractors and recyclers adopt Screencore equipment,” explains Ciarán Ryan.


A typical application sees in the first instance a Screencore XL Dual-Power Crusher being fed the demolished or excavated material, usually by an excavator or loading shovel. The Screencore XL itself is a dual-power 700 mm x 500 mm jaw crusher designed with a compact footprint. It has proved to be ideally suited to the modern demands of a recycling contractor, rental fleet or inner-city demolition/recycling site. It weighs in at just 18 250 kg which means that it can be easily relocated without the need for permits. It is designed to be both environmentally and acoustically friendly while delivering impressive throughput even on hard rock applications or concrete with rebar.


Following crushing to -100 mm, the material is then fed into a 17 000 kg Trident 124 scalper/screener to produce 0/25 mm, 25/60 mm and +60 mm products. In addition, any ferrous metals such as rebar or wire, are easily removed for resale/recycling by the overband magnet on the XL crusher’s discharge conveyor before being fed into the screen. In many applications the 0/25 mm material is generally used for pipe bedding; 25/60 mm directly as road subbase or as feed material for secondary crushing for concrete production, whilst the +60 mm is used as drainage stone. The combined set-up time for this crushing and screening combination is less than 30 minutes.


Getting to the material

Due to the easily transportable and modern nature of the equipment, French contractors and Starloc have found that the Screencore crusher and screen combination can be readily transported to where the material is. This means that the material can be processed where it originated and generally where it is needed resulting in no unnecessary emissions, material handling or transport costs. In addition, the local environment is not subject to unnecessary traffic disturbances and the overall carbon footprint of the contract is dramatically reduced. 


“Although possessing features that makes them ideal for working in hard rock quarries and aggregate plants, the Screencore XL Dual-Power crusher and the Trident 124 scalper/screener are proving to be the perfect combination on many French construction and demolition projects,” concludes Screencore director Ciarán Ryan.
