Shepperton, Surrey-based 365 Concrete has recently taken delivery of a Remu 3160 screening bucket from Worsley Plant for its Volvo loading shovel.
365 operates a volumetric batching plant, where it puts the raw ingredients into trucks to make concrete on-site. This means it can be mixed and ad- justed to suit the customer’s specifications and quantities.
As part of a greener focus, 365 started to buy recycled raw products to use in this process, and 70% of these are now recycled further on-site to the correct consistency to make the concrete mix as perfect as possible.
Since taking delivery of the screening bucket, the recycled materials – typically aggregate and concrete – can be screened to suit requirements and made into whatever is needed with full control. 365 Concrete believes the screener will save it 40% of bought-in product costs.
Loading the 3160 bucket is easy. It uses a quick hitch and has just three pipes to change, so operatives can alternate between a loading bucket and a screening bucket as needed. This keeps the loading shovel and the driver fully employed.
