Haulage and inert waste recycling specialist Jeremy Bishop Haulage (JBH) is scaling up productivity and producing high-specification recycled products with a single high-powered machine that is performing a double duty at its Plymouth site.
A Terex Finlay J-1170AS jaw crusher, supplied by Finlay PlanSW, is carrying out work previously done by two machines at the company’s inert waste recycling facility at Lee Mill, and is working alongside the existing plant.
Recycled products are processed from concrete and brick rubble, brought in as construction and demolition waste from building sites. The material is initially processed by a Terex Finlay 883, which screens out material of less than 50mm, a 50-75mm aggregate and +75mm product. The last two fractions are then taken to the J-1170AS.
The swing shovel-fed crusher creates a Type 1 product, which can then be processed through the Terex Finlay 684 on-site to produce a dust, 10mm, 20mm and 40mm chippings.
Matthew Shute, JBH senior site representative, said: “We wanted to try something with a screenbox to see if it would work with our application, and it has proved very capable of doing that. We are seeing volumes of between 100 and 150 tonnes an hour being produced, which is considerably more than before.”
