TETERBORO, NEW JERSEY – The M-Series (Mining Series) all in one Screener Crusher bucket from ALLU Group Inc. attaches to wheel loaders and excavators and processes a wide variety of mined materials, including coal, oil shale, limestone, dolomite, gypsum, phosphate, salt and other soft rock. With the extraction of resources from the ground becoming more expensive and complex, ALLU’s innovative processing bucket converts a wheel loader or excavator into a high capacity mobile pre-crushing and screening solution, which can place material either into stockpiles or directly into trucks or rail cars. It reduces both capital investment and operating costs for the mine owner, while also significantly reducing equipment wear life, production time and operating costs. Pre-crushing, screening and loading are achieved in one initial step with a processor that can easily be transported around a site on a loader or excavator. These attachments can be utilized in both open pit and underground mining applications without the need for the huge capital costs associated with a stationary crushing and screening plant. The ALLU M-Series attachment allows the processing machine to be brought to the material, rather than bringing the material to the machine.
Purpose built to match the mining industry’s need to aggressively engage the materials bank, the M-Series Screener Crusher buckets are strategically positioned out in front of the carrier. A typical bucket of material can be crushed and processed in less than 60 seconds, providing a processing capacity of up to 650 tons per hour. There are six M-Series models, each with the ability to produce three to four different fragment sizes. They fit wheel loaders from 30-90 tons, as well as excavators from 50-160 tons. The patented rear mounted drum and bearing design uses three or four rotating crushing drums that are powered by a hydraulic motor.
The hydraulically operated hinged mount plate on the wheel loader models allow an M-Series screener crusher attachment to also be used as a loading bucket, above and below ground, with normal load and carry characteristics, including maximum breakout force. When processing material to produce different finished product sizes, typically in the 4-plus-inch range, the M-Series Screener Crusher mount plate position directs material flow, protecting the carrier from stray material.
Installation of the M-Series Screener Crusher includes a wired control panel located inside the operator’s cab of the carrier machine. This monitors key data to the screener crusher’s performance, including hydraulics, temperature and bucket angle, as well as providing a link for real time ALLU after sales service. As with standard buckets, the M-Series screener crusher is designed with changeable wear parts. The M-Series buckets are also equipped with the ALLU DARE data reporting system, which enables remote monitoring of the equipment condition and material processing performance via a mobile uplink.
