In the construction and recycling industry, demolition and recycling equipment play a key role in the efficient processing of materials from construction demolition and industrial waste. Two essential attachments in this context are sorting grapples and crusher buckets. This equipment allows materials to be separated, sorted, and reduced so that they can be reused in new production processes, promoting environmental sustainability and resource optimisation.
Sorting grapples are hydraulic attachments that are mounted on excavators or earthmoving machines. They are designed to grip, lift, and handle various types of materials, such as concrete, wood, metals, and more. Their robust design and interchangeable jaws enable accurate sorting and targeted handling of materials. Sorting grippers are widely used in dismantling and demolition operations as well as industrial waste management.
The advantages of their use are manifold.
Sorting accuracy: sorting grapples enable the isolation of specific materials, simplifying the recycling process and reducing the risk of contamination.
Operational efficiency: thanks to their gripping and handling capacity, the grapples reduce working time and optimise the efficiency of dismantling and transport operations.
Waste reduction: separating materials directly on site reduces the overall amount of waste and the need to move unnecessary materials.
Reduced environmental impact: careful selection of materials promotes recycling and reuse, contributing to sustainable resource management.
Sorting grapples are used in the selective demolition sector, allowing specific parts of a building to be removed, and preserving valuable materials for recycling.
They are used in industrial waste management, separating reusable materials from industrial waste, facilitating the disposal process.
The crusher bucket, on the other hand, is an equipment that can be mounted on back loaders, wheel loaders, telescopic handlers, mini excavators, and skid steers in addition to excavators, and is used to crush and reduce materials such as concrete, stone and asphalt into smaller pieces. The resulting fragments can be reused as fill material or for the production of new products.
The use of the bucket crusher directly on the construction site allows the volume of demolished materials to be reduced, as they are processed into smaller fragments, reducing the overall volume of waste to be handled.
Internal recycling of materials on site reduces the need to purchase and transport new materials, contributing to overall energy savings.
Reusable material directly on site: shredded fragments can be used in new construction or structural repairs.
Varied are the areas of application for the crusher buckets, from demolition to reconstruction allowing precisely the reduction of waste materials from demolition into recycled material to be used immediately; for road construction, crushed materials can be reused for road bases, as well as in the production of aggregates.
CM’s sorting grapples and crusher buckets are essential equipment in demolition and recycling, contributing significantly to the sustainable management of materials from construction demolition and industrial waste. Their ability to select and process materials in a targeted manner promotes internal recycling and reuse, reducing the overall environmental impact of construction and demolition activities. The adoption of this equipment not only improves operational efficiency but also contributes to the goal of a more sustainable and environmentally responsible future in the construction industry. directly on the construction site allows the volume of demolished materials to be reduced, as bulky materials are processed into smaller fragments, reducing the overall volume of waste to be managed.
