Powerscreen Warrior helps reduce landfill

Powerscreen Warrior 800

PMW Quarries take delivery of new Warrior 800 tracked heavy-duty screen to help recycle waste  

HUDDERSFIELD-based PMW Quarries have recently taken delivery of a new Warrior 800 screen from Powerscreen Pegson Equipment to help improve operations at a disused quarry which the company now operates as a landfill site for inert waste.

The facility takes waste from two sources – PMW’s own muck-away service, which operates eight tipper wagons, and muck and soil waste from other local operators.

 

The waste received is crushed using a crusher bucket and then screened by the new Warrior 800 tracked heavy-duty screen, which is currently operating with 50mm fingers on the top deck and a 40mm mesh on the bottom deck.

The Warrior lends itself well to this application as it has a highly aggressive screening action for a machine of its size, which produces a good end product.

Moreover, its compact size and manoeuvrability mean the machine does not take up too much room on site and can be easily relocated to suit PMW’s processing needs.

Commenting on the benefits the Warrior 800, Danny Watson, managing director of PMW Quarries, said the addition of the Warrior 800 has proved an excellent decision for two reasons.

‘First, it is helping to reduce the amount of material which we have to tip, which will increase the life of our landfill; and secondly, it provides us with saleable recycled soils and aggregates, and therefore an additional revenue stream.’

He added: ‘We’ve bought Powerscreen machines in the past and their build quality and operating performance was another reason for selecting the Warrior 800.’
