Robust high-energy mobile screen adds ‘muscle’ to wash plant at Auckley recycling facility
DONCASTER-based PC Excavations have recently taken delivery of a new McCloskey R155 high-energy screen supplied by approved distributors Aggregate Processing and Recycling (AGG-PRO) of Tamworth, Staffordshire. The machine has been acquired to complement the company’s existing washing plant at its Auckley recycling facility.
PC Excavations have more than 40 years’ experience in a wide range of projects ranging from earthworks, demolition, waste management and recycling to the construction, civil engineering and associated industries.
As the latest addition to their fleet, the McCloskey R155 will provide more ‘muscle’ to their washing operation at Auckley. A robust screening tool, the machine is designed to cope with the heaviest of applications and has the ability to handle some of the worst untreated construction and demolition waste, thereby minimizing material pre-handling and providing clean end products.
Driven by a 127hp power unit, the R155 has proved extremely effective across a wide range of applications. With 155 square feet of screening area, the largest in its class, the R155 is said to perform well in primary crusher circuits, site reclamation, construction and demolition waste, heavy rock, sticky clay and fines, and boulder clay.
The ability of the R155 to handle larger material stems from its open feed design along with what are said to be the largest hopper and thickest feed and oversize conveyor belts in the industry, together with full-length impact bars.
Commenting on the new machine, Mick Preston, managing director of PC Excavations, said: ‘We constantly keep a watchful eye on the latest technologies available to the industry. The R155 fits the bill perfectly and will allow us to process materials efficiently, which will save our clients time and money.’
He added: ‘We also have the back-up from AGG-PRO and feel very secure that we have a professional parts and service package in place.’
