New Anaconda feeder conveyor for CRJ Services

Recycling plant hire firm purchases FTR150 unit for flexibility and mobility

CHESHIRE-based CRJ Services have taken delivery of a new FTR150 tracked feeder conveyor from Matpro Machinery, authorized Anaconda dealers for the north of England and Scotland.

Since 1999, CRJ have built a solid reputation for providing the right mobile recycling plant (mobile screens, shredders etc.) to their UK customers, ensuring their equipment solutions help reduce waste to landfill and create saleable products.


According to Ben McQuaid (pictured left), managing director of Matpro Machinery, the FTR150 feeder conveyor has proved to be an excellent addition to the company’s hire fleet.

He commented: ‘CRJ were very impressed with the feeder conveyor’s ability to efficiently convey and stockpile a wide range of materials. The FTR suited CRJ’s requirements; where the user needs to control the flow of material output. Both the feeder and main conveyors on the Anaconda unit have been fitted with variable speed controls to ensure the operator has full control of the scalping/feeding process. 

‘The system is also excellent at holding material within the hopper, allowing a regulated flow of material to travel up the main conveyor belt. This particular function means that the unit can be used to feed material on to screening and crushing equipment.’

The FTR150 is available with an open feeder to accept all materials into the feed hopper or, alternatively, it can be fitted with a remote reject grid to scalp off any oversize material present.

There is also the option of fitting a vibrating grid to help separate/remove any unwanted large material that may be more difficult to scalp with the standard reject grid. The vibrating grid is available as a double-deck option so a further product can be removed and stockpiled.
