TEREX MPS, a leading provider modular crushing, screening, and conveying solutions, have successfully installed their first large modular plant in the UK.

The customer, a market leader in sustainable building materials, road contracting, and building products, was seeking a solution to reduce both dust emissions and diesel costs. Terex MPS designed a fully electric modular setup which includes four modular plants: two Terex MPS MC320 cone modules and two Terex MPS MHS6203 screen modules.

 

Jake Wilson, territory sales manager with Terex MPS, explained: ‘The primary challenge of the design process was achieving a solution that would reduce dust while maintaining material shape and throughput. We reduced dust content by having a lower initial reduction ratio while improving product shape through better stone-on-stone attrition and a more consistent crushing ratio. The solution we provided was tailored to address customer needs and overcome industry-specific hurdles.’

Blasted limestone is fed through a primary crusher at a rate of 450 tonnes/h and processed through an impactor and sizing screen. The 40-160mm product enters the secondary crushing phase, a Terex MPS MC320 cone module, then to the Cedarapids MHS6203 modular screen. Finally, oversized material from the Cedarapids MHS6203 goes to the tertiary Terex MPS MC320 cone module before re-entering the MHS6203. The final output achieved is varied limestone aggregates including –4mm, 4–6mm, 6–10mm, 10–14mm, and 14–20mm.

The plant was successfully sold through Terex MPS distribution partner PowerX Equipment. Together, both companies ensured reliable communication and support throughout the acquisition process. ‘From initial design discussions to the commissioning phase, Terex MPS worked with PowerX Equipment to provide comprehensive support to the customer,’ said Mr Wilson. ‘The collaboration involved site visits, equipment training, and fine-tuning during the commissioning process to ensure optimal plant performance.’

He added: ‘This installation marks the UK’s first large modular plant by Terex MPS and serves as a flagship project, demonstrating the positive impact that eco-conscious solutions can have in the quarrying and construction industry.’
