Recycle Your Aggregate Onsite With A Portable Plant

Having a portable plant built to recycle concrete and asphalt aggregates is becoming more common as industry standards on energy consumption tighten. It’s also more cost-effective to crush concrete and asphalt on-site versus loading and hauling the resources from your construction area or quarry. At Carminex, we have the experience necessary to mount any portable impactor to a custom built plant for effective mobile aggregate recycling.

Lower Your Energy Consumption

The days of trucking used concrete to landfills are over. Recycling concrete for future projects is now the norm. Instead of loading and hauling your aggregate away to a recycling centre, which increases fuel consumption and pollution levels, we can create an electric, portable impactor plant. This system reduces emissions and operational costs, while creating a reusable concrete or asphalt aggregate.

Difficulties In Recycling Aggregate

Recycling concrete or asphalt can only be achieved if all of the impurities are removed. There cannot be any metal or steel such as rebar left in the feed. Our plants are built with powerful filtering magnets onboard, to rid the construction material of contaminants before crushing. If large metal pieces find their way into the impactor, it could become damaged. Carminex’s portable impactor plants make sure this doesn’t happen.

Finding parts for your mobile plant can also be a challenge should a piece of equipment onboard need maintenance. Carminex has Hewitt Robins™ parts and equipment for our portable plants in stock to limit any equipment downtime that may occur.

Sorting your recycled concrete or asphalt after processing is another difficulty posed to portable plants. With Carminex, you won’t need to purchase any other extra conveyors or screens; we build them right into your mobile plant. It’s an all-in-one mobile solution.

Creating Your Portable Solution

We’ve been building mobile solutions for aggregate companies for decades. We have the parts, equipment, and experience necessary to build you a safe and functional piece of equipment. Our portable plants can use Sepro, OEM, or any customer-supplied screening or crushing equipment. They are easy to maintain, quick to setup and teardown, making frequent moves between yards quick.

Our Current Portable Plant Projects


Do you need a portable plant? Carminex has the means to supply you with exactly what you need.

Founded in 1993 in Quebec, Canada, Carminex has grown to a global organization working on mining and quarry projects around the world. As part of our mission to provide flexible solutions, we’ve developed a wide range of portable plants that we build for our clients, no matter where they are located.  For instance, one of the most recent projects we are working on is in Indonesia.

Why Indonesia?

The mining sector has been one of the key sectors supporting Indonesia’s economic growth for a number of years. The industry makes a significant contribution to Indonesian GDP, exports, government revenues, employment, and perhaps most importantly, the economic development of the remote regions where mining operations are located. This is precisely where our portable plants are the most useful.

Data from the Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board shows Canadian investment in Indonesia for the period of 2005 up to 2011 consisted of 37 projects worth US$157 million. A major sector both by the number of projects and investment value is the mining industry.

Indonesia is not like any ordinary country. Indonesia consists of more than seventeen thousand islands, although some a very large, and densely populated, others are small and uninhabited. Some mines and quarries create logistical challenges to setting up aggregate equipment making mobility a priority. Many quarry owners are looking at portable equipment as a cost-savings option when they have multiple locations, since they only need one crushing system and can move the equipment from place to place for crushing and stockpiling inventory.

What Plants Are We Building?

For a current project in Indonesia, we are building a Grizzly King Jaw Plant. These plants make mobile crushing safe and simple. Quick setup and teardown times maximize efficiency, and when mounted with a Grizzly King Jaw Crusher your mobile plant has added benefits of:


  • Fewer pinched-out rocks and a more positive bite thanks to longer than conventional jaws.
  • High production tonnage, up to 982 tph.
  • Non-choking jaws that outproduce other crushers, reducing recirculation.
  • Sturdy construction and reliable service providing years of value.

At Carminex we specialize in creating portable plants and Hewitt Robins™ equipment. Our team of experts are dedicated to finding and building the right product for each client, based on their specific requirements.

When portability is key to your aggregate or quarry project, Carminex has the solution. Our efficient portable plants can improve your productivity and bottom line. To get a quote on a mobile solution for your next project give us a call at 1.450.922.0900 or send a message to our aggregate experts.
