Storm watch at Hillhead
By Steve Ducker13 June 2018
McCloskey Washing Systems (MWS) will launch the Aggstorm 150, the latest addition to its modular wash plant range, at the Hillhead exhibition in the United Kingdom this month.
The Aggstorm range is designed to deal with harsh, clay-bound material from construction and demolition waste that cannot be removed by rinsing and screening alone to produce cleaner material at a faster rate. The twin shafts run in sync with replaceable blades which intensively mix the feed material creating ‘stone on stone’ attrition. The cast steel blades come in various options including AR500 and cast manganese.
“The Aggstorm 150 has been designed with the operator firmly in mind,” said sales manager Ben Frettsome.
“Following the feedback received from our first open day in 2017 at Crown Aggregates the engineering division of MWS concentrated its effort on key areas such as access, maintenance and ease of use.
“A common maintenance issue for customers is the ability to efficiently and safely remove worn blades or entangled plastics and debris from the shaft and blades of log washers.
“With the new design this can be achieved in a matter of minutes with the revolutionary new hull design that gives the customer unrivalled access through sealed maintenance panels.”
The machine on display at Hillhead will also include the brand new 12 x 5 high energy pre-screen option.
