Recycled aggregate specialist chooses CDE
By Steve Ducker30 March 2021
The Ruttle Group of companies, a supplier of recycled aggregates, has invested in a new CDE recycling plant for its waste transfer station site at Chorley, United Kingdom.
The new wash plant will produce 170,000 t of recycled aggregates each year for the construction industry in the north west of England and across the UK.
Traditionally, Ruttle had segregated and stockpiled incoming inert material from construction sites in and around the local area, or crushed and screened it for low-grade use. Ensuring consistency in output materials was a challenge, and with incoming volumes of remediated soils rising, the company saw the opportunity to supply the market with a higher quality of washed and recycled sands, gravels and soils.
In collaboration with Ruttle, CDE co-created and delivered a bespoke wet processing solution to meet the company’s on-site requirements and commercial needs. The turnkey solution will effectively process the incoming inert material to produce high quality recycled aggregates.
The 80 t/hr wash plant includes a R4500 primary scalping screen, AggMax modular logwasher, EvoWash, AquaCycle and Filter Press.
The patented R4500 was created to handle the most troublesome materials – including heavily clay bound rock and gravel offering high energy screening of material before it enters the AggMax Logwasher for scrubbing and classification.
David Kinloch, CDE director of business development, UK and Ireland, said: “We are delighted to work with Ruttle on this new project, the turnkey solution will increase the volumes of material the company can process and maximise recovery of quality recycled aggregates as a sustainable alternative to diminishing virgin materials.”
