MPH Group add a McCloskey Wash Plant to their portfolio
The HUB team recently attended an open day hosted by Max Innovate (MI) and McCloskey Washing Systems (MWS) which was held at the Monk Plant Hire (MPH) site.
Based in Hockering, near Norwich the MPH Group is a successful family run business that have been involved in the recycling and demolition industry for almost 20 years. MPH offer the supply of crushed concrete, brick rubble and road planing’s along with screened top soil in to the local construction market. They are also able to offer site clearance and muck away services within a 60-mile radius of Norwich.
Recently the company has invested in a unique and innovative McCloskey AggStormTM Modular Wash Plant which has been supplied by MI. Based in Coventry, MI are a specialist provider of Aggregate Washing Plants, Water Treatment Systems, Material Processing and Handling Equipment for the Quarrying, Recycling and Waste Industries and the official dealer in England, Scotland and Wales for MWS.
Environmental compliance:
One of the key drivers for MPH to install a wash plant was the complete absence of tips in Norfolk for the disposal of inert muck away, C&D material or utility waste.
This is becoming more of a problem throughout the UK and the solution is to wash this material and produce reusable aggregates.
Two-day open event:
To coincide with the launch of the plant, MI and MWS held a two-day event to demonstrate and familiarise both new and established dealers and customers with the versatility and productivity of MWS latest products.
This highly successful event attracted more than 200 attendees who were taken on guided tours to inspect and view the plant in operation with the opportunity to discuss with McCloskey technical advisors. The event highlighted new washing and classifying equipment for both quarrying and recycling applications.
The MPH operation:
The washing system at MPH has been in operation for 3 months and processed approximately 60,000 tons of material creating clean drainage aggregates & concrete sands. Prior to this the material would have been crushed and sold as a low cost sub-base material.
MPH are currently producing 6 sellable products, 3 aggregates, 2 sands and a clay from the filter press. This material was previously taking up valuable space on site prior to the new system being installed. In addition, the customer was missing out on a significant revenue opportunity that could be realised through the introduction of an effective washing system.
The new MWS wash plant along with the water treatment plant installed at MPH has addressed both issues and resulted in the customer being able to maximise returns from their operation. May/June 2019 - Issue 56
