Lickley Group's Contract Crushing and Screening division has taken delivery of the UK's first Powerscreen XH 320 SR mobile crushing plant. This powerful and productive machine joins a modern rental fleet of crushing and screening plants and materials handling equipment offered for both operated and non-operated short- and long-term hire provided by Lickley Group throughout the UK.
Lickley Group is an independent, family-owned organisation with headquarters in Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire. As well as national crushing and screening hire operations, the Group also has interests in general plant hire and, through their waste management division, offers a range of specialist services from skip and bin hire to hazardous waste treatment, waste transport and reclamation and recycling, at their North Leeds site which Lickley is currently developing. The Group also has a well-established national sales and hire operation for site safety equipment from all manufacturers and also provides a calibration and repair service — including gas detectors, winches, tripods and breathing equipment amongst many others.
The Powerscreen XH 320 SR is a mid-sized horizontal impact crusher providing excellent reduction and high product shape consistency. Equally at home crushing coal, quarried rock and recycled aggregates, the XH 320 SR features a rapid set-up time, site agility and manoeuvrability on its crawler undercarriage, a fuel efficient direct drive and an output potential of up to 320 tonnes per hour depending on the application and materials to be processed.
The built-in cartridge grizzly on the XH 320 has a 42mm nominal spacing and there is a load management system for feeder speed control. The crusher chamber features hydraulic overload protection and adjustment, with crusher speed variation controlled by a user-friendly PLC control system. An independent under crusher vibrating pan feeder is standard and the modular conveyor has a simple hydraulic raise/lower facility to aid clearance of tramp metal rebar. The model taken by Lickley Contract Crushing and Screening is the XH 320 SR which is equipped with a 3300mm X 1500mm double deck post screen. This facility enables the stockpiling of a clean mid product which would normally only be achieved through the use of a separate 2 deck screening plant.
Commenting on his company's new acquisition, owner and director Mark Lickley said "We've been a customer of Blue Central for about a year now and they have already added various Powerscreen crushing and screening plants to our fleet, as well as Telestack mobile conveyor systems. Our new XH 320 SR has been hard at work on a coal crushing contract and we are very pleased with its performance, as we are with all the support and advice from Blue Central. What we liked about the whole Blue Group set-up" he continued "was the nationwide coverage through parts and service which I rely on to maintain my fleet. Their spares facility is second to none and this was one of the key factors that helped me to make my machine choice between the three leading brands I looked into".
