Stelex Construction Equipment Ltd. are pleased to of completed the installation of their first HT182M heavy duty mobile Hercules trommel in Australia.
The deal was completed in conjuction with their Australian representatives Lincom Group.
The customer's on-going material supply contract requires very high daily tonnages on strict time deadlines and so reliability was a key issue when purchasing the machine. The trommel also had to be very hard wearing due to the tough material conditions on site.
The new HT182M trommel, mounted on a steel skid frame, consists of a 1.8M diameter x 8M long barrel and is producing clean sized stone for a range of applications from contaminated as-dug material and current 'waste' material at a rate of up to 500 TPH. The wear resistant hopper is being fed via excavator and the feed rate and barrel rotation speed is variable to suit the customer's individual material characteristics. Fines material is removed from under the trommel via conveyor for further site processing.
Different barrel aperture sizes were made available to the customer so that alternative sizes of stone can be recovered to suit other future projects.
Additional products are now also being produced on site over previous working methods along with reduced waste and this has given added value to the customer since the installation of the trommel
