Halmerend Minerals In Lo♥e With Their New Portafill 5000 Screener
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.
