Cubby Construction Turn Muck Into Gold With Portafill Wash Plant
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”
