High Impact Recycling
for Prichard’s
Multi-faceted contractor Prichard’s of South Wales are getting the best from their new Terex Finlay I-120RS impact crusher.
As one of the latest additions to the fleet sourced from Terex Finlay dealer Molson Finlay, the I- 120RS impact crusher has already settled in nicely at its new home at the Project Yellow site in Pontyclun, one of four Pritchard recycling facilities, with this being the first of this model ever used in a recycled aggregate application in the UK.
With their head office in the historic town of Llantrisant in the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf, near Glamorgan in South Wales, Prichard’s are a business that is certainly looking to the future. As one of the leading providers of construction and support services throughout Wales, the Midlands and the South West and with a diverse range of specialist divisions, including demolition and civil engineering contracting, plant hire, transport, skip hire and recycling, Prichard’s are held in high regard as a trusted supplier for many.
Project Yellow is Prichard’s primary base for the
recycling of aggregate materials, and soil recovery
for residential and commercial use, all following
the WRAP QP and the principles of CL:aire
DowCoP, as relevant. However, they are not
limited to recycled material as they can also
supply virgin aggregates in a wide range of sizes as well as an innovative ‘Eco-sand’ material that is produced from recovered glass, again in compliance with WRAP QP.
The Terex Finlay I-120RS impact crusher is more commonly found working in quarry applications with a more consistent feed material and lower likelihood of foreign objects and contaminants as received wisdom is that impact crushers working in recycling applications generate high wear rates that make the cost of production simply too high to consider, often leading to a jaw crusher solution instead.
However, the Terex Finlay I-120RS is a machine to
challenge that logic thanks to numerous design features from the serial innovators at the Terex Finlay factory in Omagh, Northern Ireland. This new generation impact crusher has been re-designed from the ground up, with a focus on improved material flow and production capabilities for a wide range of applications. Featuring the Terex CR038 impact chamber with direct drive and advanced electronic control system the machine provides operators with high material reduction ratios and produces a consistent product shape.
