Attachments manufacturer Allu has introduced a new range of crushing attachments said to be purpose-designed to meet the requirements of the demolition, recycling and quarrying industries
The firm – the maker of the Transformer and Processor ranges of material handling attachments – will be launching the range at
the CONEXPO/CONAGG event in Las Vegas in March 2020.
The launch of the new Allu crusher series will initially see three crusher models introduced for excavators in the 10 to 33 ton range. All have purpose-developed features that ease their use and optimize performance, says Allu, whilst providing easy maintenance in the field. Amongst the many customer focused features included on the new Allu Crushers are:
• Reversible crushing: This reduces the potential for jamming, blockages, or obstruction with rebar are avoided, whilst delivering greater levels of production and reducing the need for any manual involvement in the crushing process.
• Feed plate design built into the jaw: Ensures that the feeding function in a fully loaded chamber delivers high rates of production with minimal risk of bridging.
• Simple mechanical pin adjustment for output size regulation: Makes the entire crushing process easy and safe with quick adjustment for various output specifications.
• The crusher ‘opens like a clam’: Through this design easy and quick replacement of wear parts is ensured through ease of access, saving time spent on maintenance, thereby minimizing risk to operators and maximizing productive crushing.
Jeroen Hinnen, vice president of sales for Allu Group says of Allu’s latest development: “By bringing this new product line to market we will be able to provide customers with what they have been looking for. The Allu Transformer range offers unique productivity and efficiency benefits on soft rock and other materials, whilst the Allu Crusher range enables hard rock, and often troublesome demolition materials, to be effectively reduced.
“We look forward to seeing this truly customer focused solution reach the market which will further help quarrying and demolition professionals transform their business. The product will complement the Allu offering and expand the customer base for the company.”
At CONEXPO/CONAGG, Allu will also be showing the latest developments from its Transformer and Processor series, which Allu says provide a business focus based on ‘Transforming the way you work’. “This essentially translates into efficiency through the solution being a one-stop-shop process enabling the screening, crushing, aerating, mixing and loading all in a one-step operation,” said a press release. “This also enables the transforming of profitability as less material goes to landfill resulting in less expenditure in haulage costs and landfill fees. Available in sizes to suit excavators and loaders from 8t to 160t, the Transformers facilitate the re-use of material on site, meaning that there no need to purchase virgin material due to the recycling and utilization of left over materials and the generation of an income from it.”
Allu says all of its equipment is focused on helping businesses transforming their green credentials. This is achieved as less material is transported to the jobsite meaning a reduction in fuel consumption, less material to landfill and the greater efficient utilization of waste materials leading to the support of sustainability. Vitally, this is accomplished as Allu equipment helps transform any carrier – excavator, wheel loader, skid steer etc. – into a multifunctional tool that will screen, crush, mix, aerate, pulverize and load all in a one-step operation.
Also being exhibited will be the Allu Processor which is a power mixer attachment which converts any excavator into a powerful and versatile mixing tool capable of penetrating and effectively mixing a variety of difficult materials. Materials suited for the attachment range from clay, silt, peat, sludge and sediment, to dredged material and contaminated soil. Fitted to, and powered by the excavator’s hydraulic system, and benefitting from its ability to reach difficult or soft areas, the Processor (also available in various sizes and capacities to meet customer requirements) is able to mix materials everywhere the excavator goes. This means that binders or chemical agents can be delivered to the area of the highest mixing shear by an attached 80mm diameter pipe, and injected via a nozzle located between the mixing drums.
Unique blade structure
All the Allu Transformer’s will be equipped with the patented and unique TS blade structure which has been developed by Allu (which has long been a pioneer in developing techniques of this kind). The TS blades are a modern development for the screener / crusher market, with Allu set to deliver new levels of efficiency and productivity with the new blade variations. This new blade structure also will further enable customers to utilize their Allu Transformer in more than one way. The TS® drums are available with two different blade types: standard blades for screening applications and axe blades when a crushing or shredding effect is required. Blade sizes available include 16-32mm, 25-50mm and 35mm. The latest Allu development to the TS® assembly enables three different fragment sizes from same unit. Fragment size estimation is based on screening comb distance, with it being quick and easy to change from one screening job to another, providing more versatile processing. Due to the TS®’s self-cleaning design, it allows the best possible capacity even with wet materials, termed a non-clogging structure.
New version of the Allu Mobile App
For use with the Allu Transformers is the latest version of the Allu Mobile Application (ALLU App) which the firm says provides an intelligent digital solution for customers and operators to obtain accurate and timely information regarding safe operations at jobsites, thereby maximizing the use of the equipment. Using IoT technology, the App provides information about the working hours and the right angle of inclination used by the Transformer. In order to maintain maximum productivity on the site and to minimise equipment downtime, the App provides information about the ideal maintenance frequency and the changing of wear parts, based on the working hours. Furthermore, The Allu App provides instructions to guide the operator through safe working methods when using the Allu attachment throughout the whole operating and ownership process.
