Barrett Concrete Ltd Invest In A Portafill Crushing & Screening Plant
Barrett Concrete Ltd, a Northern Ireland based company have recently invested in a complete crushing and screening plant from Portafill International Ltd for the processing of glass bottles and glass panels.
The process starts with a Portafill 7000 Impact Crusher fitted with screen box and re-circulation. Material is fed to the crusher which reduces the material size to 20mm. The +20mm can be re-processed of or stockpiled as this normally contains the aluminium and rubber found around the glass edge.
The -20mm is then sent to a Portafill 5000 screening plant which screens the material at 4mm. The +4mm material can be re-processed via the Portafill 7000 or stockpiled
The end product, -4mm, is being used in multitude of applications. These include sand / grit blasting, block making, and for use as bunker sand on golf courses due to the drainage qualities of crushed glass.
