Works even with a CAT 980
In 2017, BHS was able to celebrate increasing success in the segment of quarrying. With the use of the recycling-material-screen SBR 2 in the White Jura lime works of Eduard Merkle GmbH & Co. KG, a new dimension has now been achieved. The loading of the screening machine is done with CAT 980 wheel loaders of the 30 ton class. Florian Schmellenkamp, Head of Business Development, was skeptical when Hartmut Koch-Czech, Managing Director at Eduard Merkle, presented his request at the steinexpo in September 2017.
"The machine is designed for wheel loaders around 4 cubic meter bucket capacity, ideally with a bucket width of 3.0 to 3.2 meters. But we are happy to be convinced by our customers that our machine can also be operated with 3.6-meter-wide blades and a bucket capacity of up to 6 cubic meters, "says a delighted Schmellenkamp. Since the beginning of 2018, the machine with an 80 mm square mesh has been in use in Blaubeuren and prevents useful material from being disposed in the simplest way.
For Hartmut Koch-Czech, the SBR 2 is a much sought-after support for the design of resource-efficient processes. "The robustness and flexibility make it the perfect complement to our machine technology. The slight modification of the task was realized by our workshop in consultation with the BHS itself, "says Koch-Czech. In order to direct laterally falling screenings in the right direction, baffles were added.
With the variety of applications from sand to rock and soil to metal scrap, the SBR 2 can be described as a multi-talent. Meanwhile, the screening machine is in operation in every corner of Germany and also about 20 copies in seven different European countries. The responsible persons of the BHS are already looking forward to new surprises.
