New Screening Technology From Finlay Group Puts Wood Recycling Operation On The Fast Track (11/04/2014)
A new Terex Finlay 883 Spaleck has increased output by more than 30 per cent at a wood waste recycling centre on the Cheshire and Merseyside border.
Bark and mulch being brought into A.W. Jenkinson’s site in Runcorn is accelerating through the state-of-the-art plant, producing both fuel for power stations and peat for composting.
Supplied by Finlay Plant Northern, the new Terex Finlay Spaleck packs a powerful punch, rapidly processing the wood material – with a large-sized loading shovel feeding into the screen’s hopper to keep with capacity.
Dylan Jones is site supervisor at the facility, located off Runcorn Docks. He said: “The plant is running fantastically. We can produce an extra load an hour now with the machinery in place. We used to get two loads an hour and now we get three.”
At the heart of the machine is the two-deck German designed and constructed high performance screenbox.
The heavy duty vibrating screen has a processing range of 1mm to 120mm and it offers nearly blockage-free screening in the upper and lower deck thanks to tried and tested 3D and Flip-Flow technology.
The 3D screening segments guarantee correct grain size with no long pieces or extraneous material for the tension shaft screen on the lower deck, while the Flip-Flow screen – featuring screwless mounted screen mats - avoids unnecessary cleaning.
This combination of two system solutions in one machine offers significant savings on conveying equipment, steel structures and space.
Its processing capabilities and application flexibility make the machine an ‘all in one’ mobile solution for processing difficult waste, including recycling, slag, C&D, shredded metal, wood, compost, mulch, ores, coal and soil.
Charlie Nairn, director of Finlay Plant Northern, said: “The Terex Finlay 883 Spaleck is producing three sized products plus 60mm, which is shredded down again for reprocessing, 60mm to 10mm, which is used for power station fuel and minus 10mm, used for peat in compost.
“The machine has been specially modified, with two conveyors on one side, in-fitting with the site’s layout.
“This is the first screener of this type we have supplied and we are really pleased with its performance.”
The introduction of the 883 Spaleck is part of the ongoing investment by A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products in environmentally responsible processing facilities - in line with government waste, energy and sustainability targets - required for waste wood recovery and recycling through the wholly owned company, A.W. Jenkinson Woodwaste Limited.
Finlay Plant Northern has a long-standing relationship with A.W. Jenkinson spanning 20 years, when the company first supplied an original Finlay screen to the business.
