At ELRUS, we design crushing and screening plants that can significantly reduce costs associated with moving your spread. Our systems are modular, featuring ‘Common-Level-Design’ with a minimum of loose conveyors to facilitate site setup. Our portable plants provide flexibility and reduce the need for expensive support equipment and we have the numbers to back that up.
This means that you will have fewer loads to pull, and in most cases, no cranes, and less complexity in the teardown and set up of a move. Our common level designs feature adjustable onboard feed and discharge conveyors, hydraulic levelling and run-on legs that provide operators with a plant that is easier and faster to move, and which results in significant savings by reducing lost revenue. Less complexity and fewer loads also reduce the risk of accidents for your workers.
The onboard conveyors eliminate the need for extra transfer conveyors. Our hydraulic run-on legs also reduce set-up time compared to legs that require blocking. If you have run-on legs, your plant can be blocked and levelled in 15 minutes.
To get an idea of how this saves time and money for an operator, let’s assume your plant makes $1,000/hour. With an ELRUS plant and three men, your plant can be up and
|5-piece plant move
|Plant revenue by hour
|Setup Time per Unit
|Lost Revenue per Unit
|ELRUS Plant w/ Run-on legs
|Non-ELRUS Plant with blocked legs
Multiply the lost revenue by the number of times in a year you will move your plant, and you will see how
A portable spread that provides fast and safe mobility also allows operators to locate crushing equipment closer to the feed source of material and then, relocate as required in order to maintain proximity. This alone could result in substantial reductions in fuel consumption and overall operating costs, not to mention the second loader and all of its associated costs that you now do not have to think about because you had the foresight to see the overall big picture and got a nice portable spread.
