Ammann’s ‘3-in-1’ machine was seen in the UK for the first time by visitors to Hillhead this week. The all-new RSS 120-M has the ability to simultaneously operate as a shredder, iron separator and screener.
Designed as a solution for recycling asphalt of various sizes – ranging from millings to larger pieces and slaps – a protective passing means it is also capable of consistently providing the desired grain size.
The processing plant can reportedly be ready for production within half an hour of beginning installation and is track-mounted for maximum mobility on a variety of terrain types.
Incorporating a shredder that utilizes two low-speed, electrically-driven, shredder-rotating shafts, the machine can be run by a single operator.
Also featuring milling cutters with interchangeable teeth for crushing the required materials, the RSS 120-M includes patented technology that significantly reduces power consumption, as well as fuel usage.
The onboard technologies allow for both hard and soft materials (such as clay) to be crushed in all types of weather conditions.
An Ammann spokesman said, “Capable of processing up to 180 metric tons an hour, the RSS 120-M has been built with the environment in mind, including a dust-reduction system and reduced sound and emission levels.
“Routine maintenance is simple and all parts and components are easily accessible during maintenance and/or repairs.”
The new machine has also been designed for easy maintenance and enhanced safety. For example, it utilizes components that make it possible for all shredding and screening parameters to be managed and adjusted remotely. This enables the machine to quickly adapt to the various types of material being processed.
The RSS 120-M was on the Ammann stand at Hillhead 2018, which took place at Hillhead Quarry in Derbyshire in the UK June 26-28.
