HELPING QUARRIES STAY AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION

Jul 20, 2023

Screenmasters and Keestrack’s long-standing partnership is delivering significant benefits for Australian operations with the R6 impact crusher.

Screenmasters (SMA) has been one of Australia’s leading distributors of mobile and fixed crushing and screening equipment solutions for more than 30 years.

SMA has partnered with global crushing and screening equipment brand Keestrack to help Australian quarries set new standards and find better ways to stay ahead of the competition.

Keestrack has been in the market since 1988 and developed a reputation for quality products that combine mobile technology and remote monitoring to deliver greater fuel efficiency and durability in harsh conditions.

Keestrack founder Kees Hoogendoorn has built the company off the back of continuous improvement, saying “There is always a way to improve processes – you just have to develop it”. The belief has delivered machines that are saving Australian customers significant costs according to testimonials by Screenmaster’s clients.

Screenmaster’s director Michael McGinley echoes Hoogendoorn’s sentiment, saying “You have to stay ahead of the game, to stay in the game.”

This has never been truer than with the Keestrack R6 HSI Impact Crusher.

The Keestrack R6 is one of the most productive impactors on the market when it comes to a quarry’s core competencies in recycling, concrete and aggregate production.

It has proven to be a game-changer for many customers. This single machine can, and does, replace the need for a traditional jaw and cone crusher and screen set-up. It allows a quarry to produce up to four products in one pass, with just one machine for substantial savings in machinery and associated costs.

Fuel and servicing one machine over its lifetime against three machines can have significant benefits to a quarry’s bottom line.

Australian national companies and contractors, have been delivering rave reviews about its quality build, flexibility, performance and longevity. Many companies are purchasing their third and fourth units after seeing the initial results provided by Keestrack machinery.

These result in massive savings and improved business models for years to come for adaptors of Keestrack’s reliable equipment.

A large mining company claimed in a 13-month production period, with just one R6, it saved over $2.5 million in overall costs.

The company saved on capital purchase costs, fuel, wear, transport and maintenance costs, overall lowering cost per tonne due to the ability of the R6 to deliver in Australian conditions.

The latest R6 fitted with a larger 755hp Volvo engine, recently increased production of volcanic rock, a notoriously difficult product to break down to size from 180tph to 260tph. Previous tonnage was achieved using a jaw, 2 cone crushers and a screen.
