CEMCO designed the Portable Industrial Tile Recycling Plant around its Turbo 54 VSI Crusher, a productive vertical shaft impact crusher capable of processing a variety of aggregates and industrial minerals. The Turbo 54 handles material as large as 2 inches and uses centrifugal force with stationary anvils to crush it along natural stress lines into a cubical product. The crusher features a single-drive motor with input horsepower capabilities up to 250.
The closed circuit plant also includes a primary crusher, dust collection system, triple deck incline vibratory screen and vibratory feeder. A 500-kilowatt generator powers the equipment for location flexibility.
The plant is mounted on a custom 65-foot, 98,000-pound quad-axle trailer with self-leveling hydraulic jacks for setup. CEMCO designed and built the trailer to meet Department of Transportation specifications. The plant is 12 feet wide with a transport height of only 14-feet, 11-inches.
Designed for a single product output, the plant crushes tiles to as fine as 20 mesh. This allows operations to reintroduce the material to the product stream, which makes money, rather than bringing the material to the landfill at an average cost of $24 per ton.
The plant runs with a 50- to 75-tph feed rate and a 30-tph output at 6 mesh. The plant can crush as fine as 20 mesh, but at a slower output rate. Changing screen sizes expands the plant’s capabilities to crush other industrial materials or aggregates.
The Portable Industrial Tile Recycling Plant was manufactured at CEMCO’s Belen, N.M., facility and is built to meet all OSHA and MSHA safety standards.
