A screening bucket from Worsley Plant has helped Hargreaves Services to achieve a client’s recycling objectives for the processing of pulverised fuel ash (PFA) at a local power station.
For more than 40 years PFA had been sent to landfill but the customer decided to recycle some of the landfilled material. They had started to bulldoze up some of the PFA. But much of it was in lumps of up to 20mm that needed to be shredded down to less than 15mm for reuse.
So REMU built a standalone version of its PD3160 padding bucket, designed for pipeline projects, trench backfilling and other demanding heavy-duty applications in harsh conditions. Its robust structure, reliable power transmission and proven blade design ensure high efficiency and reliability.
The PD bucket allowed Hargreaves’ customer to mill the PFA down to less than 15mm. After further processing, it was formed into lightweight aggregate for the building trade.
Daily field maintenance of the PD3160 means checking just one service point, and the motor side of the bucket requires no daily maintenance at all.
