MD Recycling invest in new Terex Finlay 883+
Waste-management firm improves quality of its recycled products with new screening machine
MD Recycling have ramped up the quality and speed of their recycled materials after investing in a new Terex Finlay 883+ screening unit. The company, based in Mid Wales, placed an order for the new plant at Hillhead earlier this year with long-term supply partners Finlay Plant SW.
Marc Davies, director of MD Recycling, has since reported a significant improvement in the standard of soil and aggregate products processed by the machine, together with a much-faster production rate.
He commented: ‘The Terex Finlay 883+ has replaced an 883 screener and not only have we noticed a real difference since it arrived, our clients have commented on it too. The hourly production rate of the machine is considerably better and its ability to cope with wet conditions is amazing.’
The screener is processing green, mixed inert and builders’ waste, as well as construction and demolition materials brought to the site by local authorities and construction businesses from across Wales. After being processed through the 883+, the soil and aggregates produced are sold on to farming and construction companies.
Designed to work after a primary crusher or on its own as a frontline tracked mobile screening machine, the Terex Finlay 883+ boasts an aggressive screen box featuring both 4.8m x 1.5m top and bottom decks.
The screen box angle can be hydraulically adjusted to an angle between 13º-19º, while the screen box discharge end can be raised to 500mm to allow efficient and easy access and changing. Of significance is the increased area of the new bottom deck on the plant, which maximizes the screening of fines material.
Mr Davies said MD Recycling have been working with Finlay Plant SW for the past 10 years. He explained: ‘We go back to Finlay Plant SW every time because of the quality of the machine, the relationship we have with the company and the back-up service we receive. This is the third machine that we’ve had from them and we’re really happy with it.’
Gareth Johnson, managing director of Finlay Plant SW, added: ‘The machine was exactly what MD Recycling needed and it’s great to see their products have been greatly improved by the new addition. The versatility of the plant means it can work with applications including sand, gravel, coal and aggregates, as well as demolition debris, topsoil and quarrying.’
