Screening down to fines

Newcastle upon Tyne-based compost supplier GreenTech Services Broomfield Farm has taken delivery of a Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck after other machines struggled to deal with the fine material.

The 883+ Spaleck delivers mobile screening and separation technology. At the heart of the screen is a two-deck German designed and constructed recycling waste screen with flip- flow-screen media.

The stepped top deck design, combined with flip-flow technology on the bottom deck, is claimed to deliver outstanding processing capabilities and the flexibility to handle a range of applications under an ‘all in one’ mobile solution.

Darren Willey of GreenTech Services said: “Our main aim is to supply a good quality product to the market and this machine lets us do that.

“Since we started GreenTech Services at Broomfield Farm around 11 years ago, the amount of green waste being brought to the site has increased dramatically. But with three splits off the plant, we can screen all our products at the same time with a tremendous level of output.

“The heavy duty vibrating screen makes the plant almost blockage- and maintenance-free, and enables us to process material to sizes as small as 30mm and 3mm down.”

The plant is also proving its versatility and serving a double duty by screening shredded wood. The 30mm clean chip size produced is being used in biomass boilers while the 3mm down to dust is being used for animal bedding.
