Lokotrack to recycling success

11 April 2008

KKB 3R is a recycling company that concentrates on providing practical and effective recycling services for site regeneration. Its new fleet of three Lokotrack mobile crushing plants is helping it meet the UK's growing recycling demands.

For its recycling projects, KKB is using two Metso Minerals Lokotrack LT1110 impactors; the first in Maidstone, near Rochester, while the second is hard at work in Greenwich, London. Both are primarily processing tarmac asphalt.

The newest addition to the KKB 3R fleet is a Lokotrack LT200HP cone plant, being used in a project in Oxford, where it is recycling railway track ballast to be re-used as finer aggregates. The LT200HP is crushing a track ballast pile of 100000 tonnes into 0-4, 0-10, 0-14 and 0-20 mm fractions. After crushing, the end products can be used as road base materials.
