Danish contractor takes on Keestrack equipment
Kim Vind take delivery of first Keestrack Destroyer 1113 impact crusher in European market
KIM Vind Maskinstation & Entreprenor have purchased the first production model of the new track-mounted Destroyer 1113 impact crusher from Belgian crushing and screening specialists Keestrack.
Since 2008 Kim Vind have been providing recycling/waste-management services to the construction and demolition market sectors. Today, this work accounts for at least 20% of the company’s overall business.
Identifying an urgent need to replace some of its old crushing machinery, the Danish construction firm approached local Keestrack dealers TNS Imex (of Logumkloster) for technical advice and a recommendation on what to replace a tracked-mounted 30-tonne jaw crusher with.
Having examined the various options and solutions on offer, TNS concluded that a mobile impact crusher with a secondary screening unit would be the ideal machine for Kim Vind.
Keestrack’s Destroyer 1113 crusher was, therefore, selected and has been specially equipped with a secondary screen and recycling conveyor to help Kim Vind expand their range of service offerings. Thanks to the machine’s compact transport dimensions (16.26m x 3m x 3.35m), relocating the Destroyer 1113 can be carried out quickly and easily. Keestrack also offer the option of a dolly for fifth wheel transportation.
Material emerges from a 5 cubic metre-capacity charge hopper featuring a variable vibrating pan feeder via an active double-deck primary screen to separate the fine particles, which are then transported outside the crusher by bypassing or stockpile.
According to Keestrack, the robust build of the 1,000mm wide rotor with four impact bars, and a high crushing volume area provides exceptional production rates and increases the service life of the equipment. A vibration chute under the crusher transports the material on to a main discharge conveyor where a remote-controlled height-adjustable overband magnet separates any metallic constituents.
The single-deck final screen (with removable screen media) produces two fractions, while the swivel-mounted recycling conveyor returns any oversize grain to the charge hopper or stockpiles this as additional final grain.
The Destroyer 1113 crusher supplied to Kim Vin is powered by a Cummins diesel engine (298kW), which is said to deliver fuel savings of up to 25% in combination with Keestracks’s ECO-FS diesel-hydraulic system.
Since delivery the Keestrack Destroyer 1113 has processed more than 100,000 tonnes of materials, allowing Kim Vind to recycle a broader range of waste materials and supply higher-grade end-products to the local construction market.
