Recycling Aggregate Manufacturing System

Recycling Aggregate Manufacturing System

Resco High Quality Restarted Concrete Dry System

Low cost and high quality

- Producing High-quality recycled aggregate from waste concrete
- Industry first features
- Low initial and running cost
- Environment friendly

Back ground of development

- Mandatory of segregation at demolition work and recycling of building waste in Japan.
- Large volume of waste concrete is generated from building constructure in 1960's in Japan, so called high growth period
- Recycled aggregate for concrete is specified in JIS


Industry first features

Both coarse and fine aggregate achieve H grade
> Adjustment of blasting time controls end product quality, Low to High.
Minimized damage to Coarse aggregate
> Applying sand blasting system, coarse particles to avoid damage by unnecessary crushing.
Beautiful particle surface
> Blast polishing beautifully cleans particle surface.
Quality control
> The system manages blasting time, power consumption and batching information etc.
> There is possibility for cleaning contaminated soil (clay is not allowed) and decontamination.

Low initial and running cost

- Applying dry system, waste water treatment is no longer required.
- Blast, Classification, Dust removal by 1 unit

Environment friendly

- No dust emission, Low noise, Aggregate recycling

Recycling mechanism

-Sand size material from waste concrete is blasted onto coarse material by the blast rotor to tear off mortar and cementitious material.
The system reproduce coarse and fine aggregate as same quality as virgin aggregate.
Rotation of rotating casing enables top surface of coarse material layer to keep refreshing and blast material efficiently and evenly polish surface of each particles. Quality is controlled with blasting time.
(1) Coarse material(above sand size) feeding
(2) Blast material(below sand size)feeding
(3) Tear off the mortar and cementitious material by blasting
(4) Screen to classify sand particles
(5) To refill sand particles as blast material
※Ultra fine powder generated while blasting is collected by dust collector

Product Quality

Resco achieved H grade and is able to control end product quality by adjustment of blasting time

Simple controlling and high-quality

JIS standard

Recycled aggregate is generally manufactured by crushing, grinding, and classifying of waste concrete. Its quality is determined by amount of remaining motar on particles.
Grade H Aggregate manufactured by performing advanced processing of crushing, grinding, and classification. Used for general-purpose concrete.
Grade M Aggregate manufactured by processing by crushing, grinding, and classification. Used for concrete in parts that are not affected by drying shrinkage or freezing and thawing, such as piles and foundation beams.
Grade L Aggregate manufactured by crushing. Used for concrete in areas where high strength and durability are not required.
