New Powerscreen machines for KKB Group

Powerscreen Chieftain 1400 screen

Recycling firm purchases four Chieftain 1400 screens from Blue Machinery London  

KKB Group, the Kent-based remediation, demolition and recycling specialists, have invested in four new Powerscreen Chieftain 1400 mobile screens for processing recycled asphalt and aggregates. 

The company has developed a strong reputation for holding and utilizing the best equipment in its fleet, as demonstrated by the fact that all its machinery is renewed every three years. The large fleet also meets the most rigorous health and safety specifications, which has helped KKB to become preferred partners to some of the biggest players in the UK aggregates sector. 


The Chieftain 1400 units come with a remote-controlled double-deck vibrating live head over the hopper. It also boasts a patented four bearing, two-deck screenbox and an integrated high-capacity variable speed belt feeder. 

Operational benefits of the mobile screen include: hydraulic folding conveyors for quick set-up time; screen walkways and access ladders for ease of maintenance; and a drop down tail conveyor to facilitate screen media changes. All the Powerscreen machines are powered by a Tier 4 Final Cat engine, giving KKB peace of mind when it comes to adhering to the current emission regulations in the UK. 

Craig Hore, plant manager for KKB Group, commented: ‘What we like about the screens is that they work without any issues. We trust the performance of the machines, backed up by Blue’s service and spares agreement.’ 

Matt Scott of Blue London added: ‘Blue have been working with KKB for many years, having purchased their very first Powerscreen machine 20 years ago. It is testament to their vision and hard work that they have developed into one of the UK’s leading companies in their field.’
