It isnt uncommon to have various problems that could be associated with machinery and equipment in the mining industry. The environments in which they operate can be incredibly harsh often leading to the need for repair and maintenance. A primary crusher is a great example of a machinery subject to the effects of harsh environment.
A common cause of wear can be vibration. This can cause eventual fatigue, resulting in cracks and a loss of material. Inherent vibration from the operational equipment can cause premature failures in areas such as concrete foundations and their anchoring systems. Generally speaking, concrete can be considered too brittle and weak to absorb such constant impact and vibration transferred from the equipment. Once the concrete has failed, anchor bolts in the foundations can loosen, further aggravating the effects of the vibration on the foundation.
A copper mine in Marab, Brazil, found this to be the case with their primary crusher. The base of the primary crusher needed to be rebuilt due to being weakened by vibration. The primary crusher weighs 336 tonnes and is 9.5 metres high and 5.6 metres wide, contributing further to the amount of stress being put on the foundations.
The crusher processes over 3 thousand tonnes of copper ore per hour. Being one of the biggest copper crushers in South America, and with copper being traded at around 6 thousand dollars per tonne, every hour of shutdown can result in a loss of almost 20 million dollars.
Continuing under such damaged conditions would have eventually led to serious consequences, including a significant financial loss. A solution was required that could rebuild the foundation and bases of the primary crusher, whilst being able to withstand high dynamic and impact loads without shattering and breaking. Excellent mechanical properties and a fast curing time were also critical in ensuring the primary crusher would return back to service in as little time as possible. The solution presented was Belzona 4111 (Magma Quartz), a high-performance concrete repair and rebuild composite.
Using an impact hammer drill, the first two layers of concrete were removed to reach the steel reinforcement structure.Particularly with concrete repairs, surface preparation is critical in its success. The substrate needs to be free from contamination, free from excess moisture and any loose material needs to be removed. The area was therefore cleaned and degreased with solvent and compressed air was used to remove the entire repair area of loose debris and dust. Belzona 4911 (Magma TX Conditioner) was then applied to ensure an optimum bond between the substrate and repair materials.
The perimeter of the repair area was initially built up, later acting as a mould for a slurry mix of Belzona 4111. The material was able to level evenly to recreate a foundation at the base of the primary crusher. The implemented solution offered resistance to high vibrations and dynamic loads due to its high mechanical strength. The excellent adhesion of the system to both metal and old concrete allowed for a homogeneous load distribution, without weak spots during the anchoring/grouting procedure and service.
The curing time of the system allowedthe assembly of the machine to commence in as little as 4-6 hours after application and a full return to service was possible in approximately 16 hours.The fast turnaround time allowed the copper mine to continue its processes without a majorly disruptive or costly downtime. The chosen solution allows for long term protection, as opposed to a quick fix with a lower quality and a significantly shorter life.
Since the application, the repair continues to perform well and was visited a few months after the application. Hita Comrcio e Servios Ltda, the Belzona Distributor in Brazil,has performed over 100 foundation and anchor bolt repairs in the past 3 years using a Belzona 4111 mould/slurry mix solution.

We have been able to successfully reduce pollutants that are an environmental threat and reduce the amount of waste, which results in a safer jobsite and considerable cost savings. All of our recycled materials can be reused as aggregates and fill.
The early phases of many construction projects involve the demolition of concrete foundations, sidewalks, driveways, and other concrete structures, which can leave a contractor with a sizable volume of heavy, dense materials to deal with. Fortunately, concrete can be recycled and reused in many ways. Typically (but not always) the process involves crushing or pulverizing the concrete rubble near the demolition or building site. Choosing the best method often depends on the size and shape of the concrete pieces to be recycled. Reusing concrete can a good way to reduce construction costs while providing some benefits to the environment. Recycled concrete not only stays out of landfills, but it also replaces other materials such as gravel that must otherwise be mined and transported for use.
Recycling concrete helps reduce construction waste and extend thelife of landfills as well as saving builders disposal or tipping fees. It also reduces transportation costs because concrete can often be recycled in areas near the demolition or construction site. If builders are seeking LEED Green Building certification, they can receive points for using recycled concrete. In some instances, new employment opportunities arise in a recycling activity that would not otherwise exist.
Concrete is recycled by using industrial crushing equipment with jaws and large impactors. After the concrete is broken up, it is usually run through a secondary impactor and is then screened to remove dirt and particles and to separate the large and small aggregate. Additional processes and equipment, such as water flotation, separators, and magnets, may also be used to remove specific elements from the crushed concrete. An alternative method is to pulverize the concrete, but this is not the always the best option, as it makes it harder to complete the separation process and may leave more contamination from smaller byproducts.
When considering concrete recycling as an option, you will also need to evaluate the options available for crush the concrete. The most practical solution can be a portable crusher that can be moved to different locations or projects. Often, it works best to set it up a portable crusher at a centralized location, near where the concrete is being demolished but where it will not hinder site traffic. Factors to consider when choosing processing equipment include:
Over time and after a number of projects, materials that are difficult and expensive to dispose of pile up. It costs to have them processed in recycling centers. The materials that are considered an unnecessary expense. Old light poles, columns and concrete pipes, railway sleepers, vineyard posts with spring steel:some shapes of material seem to be more complicated and expensive to recycle. It's categorized as uncommon and costly inert material.
MB Crusher units are your easy and cheap solutions to manage waste. The iron falls out of the bucket with the crushed material and thanks to the iron separator, you can select it and put it in a different pile.
You can do it directly on site, by just unscrewing a few bolts, inserting or removing the shims and adjusting the jaws according to your needs. And not only that: the material produced by MBs crusher bucket is good quality and therefore ready, reusable or resold as needed.
Because you can recycle inert material and iron. Two companies, two success stories: recovering waste material and obtaining double the profit. On two construction sites, one in France and another in Bulgaria, they are recovering railway sleepers and reinforced concrete. With a BF90.3 and BF80.3 crusher bucket and their excavators, these companies can easily pick up sleepers and poles and crush them on the spot. The iron comes out from the crusher and then is put in a different pile with the iron separator, installed directly on the crusher bucket.
Whats better than optimizing time, when the project has a deadline? In Slovakia, the administration of a municipality needed to redo all the sidewalks, having heaps of inert material to be moved and brought to recycling centers or landfills. A BF70.2 crusher bucket recycled the aggregate directly on site and used it without spending money on recycling centers or new material. Its not necessary to calculate how much they saved, in terms of time and site logistics.
Why pay when you can have a real recycling center on site? This is what happened to one of our customers in the Czech Republic, who works with railways. Their problem was how to dispose of the sleepers, and how to avoid its demanding costs. After evaluating the option of renting a stand crusher (expensive and subject to breaking down due to the material) or hauling the material to a recycling center (large logistical and operational costs), they landed on MB Crusher. The solution was simple and attached to their excavator! With the BF70.2 crusher bucket they recycled all the old sleepers directly on site.Without other costs.
