Cubby Construction Ltd of Carlisle have recently installed a Portafill wash plant from UK dealer Riverside Machinery Ltd.
The plant consists of a Portafill 3000 Tracked Rinsing Plant, Portafill DW80 Dewaterer and Portafill fresh water pump . The water treatment equipment has been provided by Siltbuster.
The plant is processing a mixture of materials which includes utility waste, track ballast and material from road maintenance programs.
The purpose of the plant is to produce a washed 10mm, 20mm and sand. The silt content is sent to the Siltbuster plant where the water is removed via lamella plates and plate press thereby allowing clean water to feed the wash plant.
John O’Neill comments: “this is an extremely compact setup and for a relatively small investment we are providing a working plant which is producing excellent materials from a difficult feedstock”
The Neuenhauser Star Screen will be used to screen both shredded green waste and food waste. When screening the shredded green waste the material will eventually be sold as chemical free compost for farming and gardening use.
Halmerend Minerals, a family owned company specialise in producing an aggregate for use in ecohouses and ecobuildings. They also specialise in the drying of sands for industrial use.
Conversations between Riverside Machinery and Halmerend Minerals started after they realised that their exisiting mobile screener was just too big and cumbersome for their yard.
A Portafill 5000 screener was subsquently hired to Halmered Minerals to screen the crushed material from the impact crusher down to a 17mm single sized aggregate.
John O’Neill comments: “from the moment the hire started it was clear to see that the machine would not be leaving. Due to the compact nature of the screener and the high energy efficiency of the screenbox the machine proved night and day between it and the older screener”
The Portafill 5000 is a very compact machine weighing only 14 Tonne. The heart of the machine is the 10ft x 4ft screenbox which is thee most agressive screenbox in the marketplace. Power is provided by a Deutz 2011 engine.
Riverside Machinery Ltd, have recently delivered a new Portafill 3000 to Cubby Construction Ltd
Cubby Construction Ltd, a Carlisle based company, are a multi disciplined organization specializing in construction, civil engineering and housing since 1968.
The decision was made to purchase a Portafill 3000 after Cubby Construction were successful in winning several high profile jobs to supply top soil and single sized aggregates.
The Portafill 3000 ticked the box in a number of areas. The benefits of this machine include the compact nature of the machine weighing only 12 Tonnes. The ability to fit a washing system to the screenbox as and when required. Last but not least the ability to use the machine in a 2 – fraction format.
John O’Neill comments “this is Cubby Construction’s first screening plant and we are delighted they were able to see the huge benefits the Portafill machine offers. We look forward to a great relationship with them”
W T Clarke & Son based in Leicester have taken delivery of a Neuenhauser Star Screen from UK dealer Riverside Machinery Ltd.
W T Clarke & Son operate a compost and wood recycling facility at their farm in Leicester where they shred and screen wood for use in biomass and compost for use on their farm
Until recently they have had to make do with a Backers star screen, but with their tonnages increasing year on year discussions began with Riverside Machinery to replacing their existing screening plant.
John O’Neill of Riverside Machinery comments “for ultimate throughput and excellent separation of material, nothing will touch a Neuenhauser star screen. They really are the ultimate tool for screening wood, compost and skip waste at high tonnages”
This particular Neuenhauser star screen model is fitted with a 7 metre x 1.25 metre star deck and has 300mm diameter stars which allow for screening down to 0-20mm and out to 0-60mm depending on the speed of the stars.
In addition the machine is fitted with automatic lubrication, screw auger to agitate the material, the facility to fit a windshifter at a later date.
The power unit is a 6 cylinder Perkins diesel engine and all controls are hydraulic driven. One of the main features of the Neuenhauser star screen is the engine bay is placed over the front of the hopper. This has several benefits. Servicing of the machine is much simpler. The engine is placed far from the hydraulics and the machine is much more stable on the roads due to the majority of the weight being over the fifth wheel transport pin.
