At the Roan Edge operation blasted gritstone is loaded by a 50 tonne excavator into several Powerscreen® crushing and screening plants to make a -14mm material. This material is then moved into a dedicated stockpile area where it is fed into the Terex® Aggresand 206 Modular Wash Plant to make clean saleable 14mm, 10mm, 6mm aggregates and a washed sand.
A totally managed contract:
DUO Processing have run, controlled and managed the Roan Edge operation successfully for over 10 years with a team of highly skilled plant supervisors and industry professionals. Supervisors on site monitor the wash plant, water treatment plant and supervise the crushing operations. Plant operators operate the plant machinery across the whole site. Making it run efficiently and to its maximum capacity.
Martin McWilliams – MD of DUO Operations, commented, “This site is producing over 1200 tonnes per day, five and a half days a week and is typical of our “Two Working as One” ethos, we believe that teamwork with the customer, is vital in ensuring that needs are met. We will always, where possible, do what is required to adapt to meet changes in a processing situation. It’s been a total success, ten years of minimising the input to maximise the output.”
