Mobile recycling is central for Henshaws
By Steve Ducker11 April 2018
A waste management company in the north west of England is one of the first to take delivery of a Kiverco mobile recycling plant from Finlay Central.
Part of the Finlay Group of companies, Finlay Central specified the Kiverco PS122 Picking Station for Henshaws’ 6.5 ha (16 acre) site in Macclesfield, along with a Terex Finlay 883+.
Offering the benefits of a high performance stationary plant, the new mobile Kiverco PS122 combines manual sorting, magnetic and air separation in one unit.
The new Terex Finlay 883+ is feeding the picking station with material brought in from the company’s skips.
It is processing the material into three different sizes, – 25 mm, 25 mm to 100 mm – which is then processed by a density separator, giving a clean fraction of stone – and an oversize that is fed to the picking station.
Replacing an old static picking station, the Kiverco PS122 at Henshaws has been fitted with an overband magnetic module to recover ferrous metals, as well as a variable speed, heavy-duty, fan blower to remove light fractions from the material.
The four-man picking line removes wood, plastic and cardboard – which then go for recycling – whilst the heavy material is crushed and sold on to customers.
James Henshaw, transport manager at Henshaws, said: “The Kiverco PS122 came to site and was set up in no time at all.
“It’s incredibly easy to use and we’re really impressed with it.
“And as always, the Terex Finlay 883+ doesn’t disappoint, we’ve had them in the past and they’re just a great machine.
“Together the two machines provide us with an optimum solution.”
