Blue Machinery Scotland at ScotPlant 2016
Once again, regular ScotPlant exhibitor Blue Machinery Scotland will be found at its usual location on Avenue C, Stands 2 & 4. The company’s impressive display this year includes the Warrior 600 mobile screener and Premiertrak 600 jaw crusher from Powerscreen and two mobile shredders from Doppstadt – the AK-510K and the slow-speed DW-3060K. The CAMS Centauro 100-32 mobile crusher/shredder and screening plant on display is sure to interest show visitors specialising in recycling and reclamation and, specifically, asphalt recycling for which this machine is designed. From sister company Blue Fuchs comes the powerful and versatile MHL320D long-reach wheeled materials handler which will be displayed in waste handling specification and equipped with an Arden S1102B Selecta Grab. Alongside the products on show will also be a display representing Blue Spares, the Blue Group company dedicated to providing efficient, comprehensive and national after sales product support, with readily available genuine OEM spare parts.
Blue Machinery Scotland provides nationwide coverage from its Stirling headquarters and is well-established as Scotland’s leading single source for crushing, screening, washing, recycling and materials handling equipment, with the clear benefit of allowing mining, quarrying, recycling, reclamation and materials handling operations to be supplied and maintained by one experienced and highly reputable company.
Blue Machinery Scotland’s Managing Director Austin Carey says “ScotPlant is an important part of our exhibition calendar and the perfect showcase for our ever-growing range of products and services. Once again, we are taking the opportunity to exhibit innovative and world-class screening, crushing, shredding and materials handling equipment, together with our after sales product support company Blue Spares, thereby emphasising our continuing commitment to the recycling, quarrying and materials handling markets that we serve throughout Scotland and North East England. We are looking forward to yet another busy and successful ScotPlant”.
Screening and Crushing Machines from Powerscreen
The Warrior 600 mobile screening plant is the most recent and smallest addition to the six-model Warrior range. Compact and easy to transport, the Warrior 600 features a simple hydraulic conversion process from 3-way to 2-way split mode which can be completed in minutes and this machine has been specifically designed for owners and operators requiring versatility and manoeuvrability. Output can be as much as 280 tonnes per hour, depending on application and screen size. The Warrior 600 is equipped with a highly aggressive 2340mm x 1170mm (8’ X 4’) screenbox capable of 6g of force. This high-strength, high amplitude, two-bearing screenbox allows easy handling and separation of large items in recycling applications, such as soils from tree stumps and logs or fines and rock from overburden and blasted rock. Other operating benefits include a rapid set-up time, ease of operation aided by hydraulic folding side conveyors, rigid feed hopper sides and two speed crawler undercarriage.
The Premiertrak 600 is one of a range of high performance primary jaw crushing mobile plants with a throughput of around 600 tonnes per hour depending on application. It is quick and easy to set up, robustly engineered for high production quarrying and recycling applications and is especially suited to processing hard rock. The 1200mm X 820mm jaw chamber incorporates many user-friendly features which includes a fully hydraulic CSS range of 75mm - 200mm and a reversing system to clear blockages quickly. The high capacity jaw is fed by a vibrating grizzly feeder with variable speed control and a large grizzly area to maximise removal of fine material, thereby prolonging the wear life of jaw plates within the crusher chamber. The bypass chute is also fitted with wear-resistant liners as standard and incorporates an adjustable five-position deflector plate to divert material to either the product or side conveyors. The product and tail conveyors can be raised and lowered hydraulically. The controls incorporate a state of the art, modern interface with intuitive graphics and high resolution display for ease of operation. There is automatic start/stop and diagnostics and machine adjustment capability. The speed of the jaw crusher on the Premiertrak 600 can be varied to suit the application and feed materials, thereby optimising performance.
Doppstadt Mobile Shredders
The AK-510K is designed and built specifically for wood and green waste processing, with large volume capacities for even more intensive shredding of tree-trunks, roots, pallets and building timber waste, green and organic waste. A high-speed shredder, the crawler-mounted AK-510K features a high flywheel mass and a new flail system for improved capacity. Additionally, the whole flail unit swings back later in harder material, leading to a more aggressive infeed and less overlengths. Flail tip exchange is quick, as the system obviates the need for wedges – and there is no bending of the flail tips either. Smoother diesel engine control reduces fuel consumption and this model also features a design to reduce impacts from the shredding compartment which results in less wear and tear in the complete drive.
The heavy-duty slow-speed DW-3060K shredder is designed to handle large bulk timber and woodwaste, mixed construction waste and industrial refuse. This single shaft shredder has numerous beneficial features which include optimum roller and comb teeth arrangements which ensure comprehensive shredding of the feed material; reversible fan wheel; generous hopper shape and size for easy loading; electrically controlled roller reversing and a large return conveyor. The DW-3060K produces recyclables to exacting specifications and enables significant volume reductions – all with reliability, productivity and fuel economy.
The CAMS Asphalt Recycler
The compact yet powerful Centauro 100-32 is designed and built to process recycled asphalt, combining a roller crusher/shredder and screening system all on one mobile plant. The dual process ensures a high quality fines with a good percentage of reclaimed asphalt in the end product. The Centauro 100-32 is powered by an array of electric motors for each function via the on-board, fuel-efficient JCB 448 diesel powered genset which produces 121kW at 1500RPM. An output of up to 160 tonnes per hour belies the Centauro’s size – the machine’s transport dimensions are only 2.55m width X 11.20m length and 3.10m height. A generous feed hopper (3m X 2m and 2.85m³capacity) leads directly to a powerful and efficient roller crusher/shredder, with the processed material passing via a magnetic conveyor to a 3.20m X 1.00m screendeck for splitting the end products into as many as three fractions if required and stockpiling with two side conveyors and one tail conveyor. On site mobility and agility is assured with a robust crawler undercarriage and the machine features wireless remote control and dust reduction as standard.
A Long-reach Materials Handler from Fuchs
The MHL320D is a 17-19 tonnes class wheeled machine ideal for waste transfer and processing plants. The 85kW engine output provides power to spare and the hydrostatic drive and 7m turning circle ensures agility around the site. The MHL320D has four hydraulic outriggers to provide optimum stability for static loading work and the infinitely variable hydraulically height adjustable cab gives the operator a raised line-of-sight. This is a distinct advantage for processor feeding or high-sided vehicle loading and unloading and contributes to operational safety with enhanced visibility during the entire working process.
After Sales Product Support
Ever mindful of the need to provide the best quality after sales customer care, product support has always been of vital importance to the company. Blue Machinery Scotland’s sister company Blue Spares provides a genuine nationwide 24/7 service, with an impressive stock-holding of over 13,000 individual items worth in excess of £2.5M, backed by state-of-the-art IT systems for stock control, ordering and immediate despatch.
