XH320SR mobile impactor helps meet increased demand for recycled aggregate in Virginia

A COMPACT and fuel-efficient Powerscreen XH320SR impact crusher is helping Richmond-based Logan Aggregate Recycling Inc. meet increased demand for recycled aggregates in Virginia, in the US.

The popularity of recycled aggregates is growing in the state, but local suppliers of these materials previously had to rely on contract crushing companies from as far away as Pennsylvania and Ohio, according to Joe Logan, who, along with his wife Michelle, founded Logan Aggregate Recycling in 2010.

 

‘We have tried to focus our service area within a two- to three-hour radius from Richmond in order to always have a management presence on our projects,’ he said.

In order to offer customers a solution for processing materials at plant locations where space is limited, the company recently purchased a Powerscreen XH320SR impact crusher, rated at 320 tonnes/h, from Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic Inc.

‘More and more, we are seeing that asphalt and concrete producers are using every inch of available space in their plants,’ explained Mr Logan. ‘The 320SR is a closed-circuit machine, which means that the crusher, screen and recirculating conveyor are all mounted on one track-mounted chassis.

‘The finished product is then conveyed to a stockpile by a track-mounted stacking conveyor. This significantly reduces the footprint of our operation and allows customers to use their real estate for stockpiling material and loading trucks. Additionally, we can move the setup around the site very quickly and easily.’

The machine has been in service for Logan Aggregate Recycling since mid-February 2012 and has already logged approximately 1,000 hours.

‘We have been very impressed with the fuel economy of the Tier IV Interim-compliant Scania engine,’ said Mr Logan. ‘We also try to practice good housekeeping, and we can walk the XH320SR out of the way, clean and grade the working area, and be set up again and ready to run in a matter of minutes.’

Although Mr Logan has rented equipment from Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic in the past, this machine was his first purchase from the company, and he has not been disappointed.

‘We have been extremely pleased with their support,’ he said. ‘Parts and wear items have been in stock or shipped the next day, and their service technicians are extremely knowledgeable and professional.’
