Moerschen GmbH appoint new UK and Ireland dealer
Newly appointed distributors Orba Group now supplying mobile wash-bear equipment
GERMANY-based Moerschen have appointed London-based Orba Group as authorized UK and Ireland dealer for their wash-bear machinery.
Available in three models – S, L and XL – the mobile wash-bear system is purpose developed for the separation of light materials from heavier particles such as building rubble, with the added benefits of low operating and maintenance costs. According to Orba, it has proved to be an effective solution in recycling, demolition, quarrying and construction applications.
The wash-bear works in line with the ‘floating-sinking’ principle and is designed to separate light materials such as wood, artificial and insulating materials from minerals, cleanly and efficiently.
The closed system consumes whatever water adheres to the discharged mineral, meaning that in a 10h shift; 4 to 8 cubic metres is used in practice, whilst the inlet is controlled automatically by floats. Orba Group said this technique avoids chemical build-up in the eluate.
The wash-bear materials processing system performs at 8–15kW during operation, which is said to be significantly lower than an air sieve with a similar performance. Thanks to its compact dimensions, the wash-bear can be integrated into the overall process chain even on narrow construction sites. By using (the optional) ‘clean extension’, it can be used as a wet-processing system for the removal of fine fractions (eg washing track ballast).
The wash-bear machinery range has a material throughput between 100 and 190 tonnes/h. All three models are equipped with mobile lift hooks for easy transportation.
