New Terex Finlay 883 Spaleck for Johnsons Aggregates
Nottingham-based recycling operator chooses mobile screening machine for processing incinerator waste ash
JOHNSONS Aggregates and Recycling have purchased a Terex 883 Spaleck screening machine for processing incinerator waste ash at their Nottingham site.
Supplied by Finlay Central, the Terex Finlay Spaleck produces road construction materials, including 10mm–, 10-50mm and 50mm+.
At the heart of the machine’s capability is a two-deck German designed and constructed high-performance screenbox. The heavy-duty vibrating screen is said to offer almost ‘blockage-free’ screening in the upper and lower decks thanks to tried-and-tested 3D and Flip-Flow technology.
The 3D screening segments guarantee correct grain size with no long pieces or extraneous material for the tension shaft screen on the lower deck, while the Flip-Flow screen – featuring screwless-mounted screen mats – avoids unnecessary cleaning. This combination of two system solutions in one machine offers significant savings on conveying equipment, steel structures and space.
Steve Johnson, director and founder of Johnsons Aggregates and Recycling, commented: ‘The machine is versatile and can process extreme products that typically struggle through conventional screens. The additional vibration allows the waste ash material to release itself so it avoids clogs, and it also handles the product’s abrasive consistency. The self-cleaning mechanism is very useful.’
Neil Bailey, sales engineer of Finlay Central, said: ‘The Terex Finlay 883 Spaleck’s processing capabilities and application flexibility make the machine an ‘all in one’ mobile solution for processing difficult waste, including recycling, slag, C&D, shredded metal, wood, compost, mulch, ores, coal and soil.’
