Concrete ranks high as raw material that’s often recycled. Concrete is both strong and durable making it exceedingly the most used than others for many purposes. Some include composite materials used by concrete suppliers, the foundation of roads, ready-to-pour concrete for use in construction sites and pavement - Concrete blocks for the production of prefabricated materials and many others.

What’s is concrete crushing?

Concrete crushing is the process of grinding the concrete into gravel that can be reused and recycled. Our demolition specialists can crush the concrete before they demolish the respective properties with precision equipment like high-reach excavators with attachments. Thereafter we separate the concrete, store it in your site’s discrete location as well as remove impurities like debris. We process the concrete into pieces 18” square to remove much possible rebar and enhance easier passage through the crusher. Then the excavator loads or pours the concrete into the crusher that break the blocks into small pieces by using its strong interlocking teeth.

Once concrete processing is done, sorting of the pieces by size follows as well as the removal of metal that can be recycled or sold by the use of an electromagnet. Essentially, gathering all the unwanted concrete and reusing it is an environmentally-friendly way of getting things handled or done. In other words, assist in clearing waste from your property and making good use of it.

Our concrete crusher plants are designed to handle concrete and masonry of up to 200 tons per hour. But most usually have waste material ranging from 60 to 80 tons. Thereafter we can turn the concrete into around 2500 tons of reusable products in one business week.

Our site’s powerful 1100 x 800 Pegson concrete crusher is capable of pulverising 300 tons of concrete and masonry every hour. We do have highly skilled experts who operate our mighty machine and are accredited per the CPCS (Construction Plant Competence Scheme) regulations.
