Company impressed with fuel economy from MPEX crushing and screening duo


A company purchased MPEX-3045 jaw crusher and MPEX-1303 inclined screen to cater for their needs in their expanding recycling business.

Over the past decade, the company has expanded into a profitable business, they specialize in groundworks, civil engineering & demolition projects.

A key part of the expansion has been the recycling aspect of the business. The company decides to develop its own recycling yard two years ago and initially brought equipment in on hire to process the recycled material. With the increasing need to supply usable aggregates for their own projects and for resale to other clients, they decide to invest in their own mobile crushing and screening plant for their site.

Focus on fuel economy

The MPEX-3045 is the perfect solution for their recycling application. Featuring a 1130 x 750mm single toggle jaw, it has a hydraulically adjustable CSS. Fitted with a CUMMINS fixed speed engine, the MPEX-3045 is extremely economical. This back to basics engine brings with it many additional customer advantages, generating more horsepower, so is therefore very easy to operate. Production rates are excellent, especially in clean material.

Ideal for their recycling site and for processing asphalt is the reverse crush function. This feature helps to relieve blockages, which combined with the hydraulically lowering main conveyor is a key benefit of the MPEX-3045 in recycling applications.

Quick and easy to configure

Purpose built for heavy duty recycling applications, the MPEX-1303 makes the perfect match for the MPEX-3045. Whether it's working before or after a primary crusher or as a standalone unit, the MPEX-1303 is designed to deliver high production with clean separation.

One of the features which impressed the company is the ability to configure the unit with reversed side conveyors or conveyors positioned on one side, unique in this product category. This proves particularly beneficial in tight confined spaces often found in recycling applications.

Other attributes of the MPEX-1303 are the modular frame design of the screen box and hydraulic jack-up screen facility, both of which enable quick and easy changeover of screen media. This saves time and money when the company needs to change the screen mesh over for processing different material. The machine is currently fitted with a 25mm mesh in the top deck and 6 mm piano wire in the bottom deck for processing topsoil.

Not missed a beat

The company has now been using the MPEX-3045 and MPEX-1303 for 6 months and they have proven the ideal fit for his recycling and demolition business. The company has been very pleased with the performance and reliability of the equipment and aftermarket support from MPEX. The MPEX-1303 has not missed a beat since the day it was delivered.
