Aggregate production rise

Terex finlay j 1170 as jaw

An aggregate supplier has seen production levels soar after bring­ing in a Terex Finlay J-1170AS jaw crusher. Sunderland-based Grab & Deliver, which also provides waste collection and haulage vehi­cle maintenance, took delivery of the compact and aggressive tracked primary jaw crusher last month.

The plant, supplied by Finlay Plant Northern, has since pow­ered through around 5,000 tonnes of aggregate in a week.

The J-1170AS, featuring a robust hydrostatically driven jaw chamber, has been brought in to work alongside a Terex Finlay 883 screener. Material goes into the screener to produce topsoil and an oversize aggregate. The J-1170AS is then fed with the oversize mate­rial to produce 45mm or smaller aggregate for use in roads and footpaths at a production rate of 700 tonnes a day.

Peter Barrass, co-founder of Grab & Deliver, is impressed by the benefits of the machine: “It is simple to use and all parts are eas­ily accessible. It takes up very little room on-site and, thanks to the remote control, we can easily move it about – something we’ve never been able to do with a crusher before.”

Finlay Plant Northern added: “With a robust variable speed VGF and integrated pre-screen, the J-1170AS offers best-in-class pro­duction levels not just in recycling, but also mining, quarrying and demolition.”
