 MJ Teale Recycled Sand & Aggregates invest in a new Tyrone International Recycled Aggregate Washing Plant
The HUB-4 team recently visited this new state- of-the-art plant at their site close to Blackpool.
Tyrone International have designed, manufactured, and commissioned this new recycled aggregate washing plant which includes a full water treatment system and a large overhead beam press manufactured by Fraccaroli & Balzan.
About MJ Teale:
MJ Teale is a family run business established for over 50 years. During this time, it has gained a reputation for customer service and quality recycled products for the demolition, construction, and excavation industries.
Their focus is on offering complete material supply management, from collection to recycling and sustainable business solutions adopting sustainable and environmentally responsible recycling practices minimising any environmental impact.
aggregates going to landfill MJ Theale viewed a number of plants and it was suggested that Tyrone International would be the company to engage with and after consultation and numerous site visits Tyrone International were duly awarded the plant contract.
Josh Teale, commented, “Tyrone took us to a previous installation which we were very impressed with and on the basis of the build quality and their knowledge we subsequently gave them the contract to supply and install a turnkey solution.
“In particular, we were impressed by how easy the plant was to maintain. Everything was well laid out and easy to access and the design of the filter press is the most impressive we have ever seen.
“We needed a plant that could meet our current needs for material processing but one that could be easily expanded to increase production in the future. This was achieved by sizing the main components to meet our future requirements and installing a filter press whose capacity could be increased by 30% in the future with the simple addition of more filter plates into the existing frame.
He added, “We were very impressed right from the start and now the plant is running we are even more impressed by the quality of the products and the reliable production capacity!”
A varied plant feed:
The new recycled aggregate washing plant is processing a combination feed of recycled materials containing anything from ‘muckaway’ to utility waste, trommel fines and the quantity of sand and the ratio of the sand/silt fraction completely varies in every bucket load going into the plant. However, the plant has been designed to accept a remarkably diverse feed whilst still retaining throughput.
Specified to process 60tph with up to 30% silt in the feed material the plant is currently achieving an average of 70tph and can be increased to 80tph by adding more filter plates to the existing filter press.
   Problem solving:
MJ Teale was finding that a lot of material coming into their site was not suitable for dry screening and crushing and had to be sent direct to landfill which did not equate with their long- term business model of sustainability and the circular economy.
Looking to future proof their business, increase their production, produce a greater range of products, and have zero Sept/October 22 - Issue 76
