New Terex Finlay inclined screen for DJB Haulage
Terex Finlay 694 enhances productivity and transforms recycling operations for customer
DEVON-based DJB Haulage have gained a new product and saved on the potential outlay of another plant thanks to a new Terex Finlay machine, supplied by Finlay Plant SW.
The company has replaced its previous combination of a 683 inclined screen and 595 mobile scalping unit with a Terex Finlay 684 inclined screen with four-way split.
The recently acquired plant has transformed recycling operations for the business. Under the new process, recycled concrete is fed into a Terex Finlay 883 heavy-duty screen to remove fines before over-size clean material goes into a Terex Finlay J1175 jaw crusher
The material is then fed into the 684 inclined screen which produces valuable, single-size products, including 40mm, 20mm and 10mm, as well as dust. Previously, the J1175 fed into a Terex Finlay 595 with 45mm mesh and a 683 with two decks to produce three clean products – 40mm, 20mm and 15mm to zero.
Gareth Johnson, managing director of Finlay Plant SW, helped DJB Haulage to specify the new plant on site to enhance productivity. ‘With the new 684 screen, DJB Haulage have gained am additional product and reduced the number of machines they operate,’ he commented. ‘Current productivity is around 150 tonnes per hour and the processed material is used for applications, including pipefill and construction sites.’
Derek Brooking of DJB Haulage, added: ‘The new 684 is proving very useful and productive. It does exactly what we wanted it to. We also benefit from an excellent service from Finlay Plant SW, who we have a long-standing relationship with.’
