Hercules Heavy Duty Trommel for France

Stelex Construction Equipment Ltd. are pleased to of completed a double deal in France with the sale of a new HT182 heavy duty static Hercules trommel plant plus the overhaul of the customer's existing machine. Both projects were made bespoke to the customer's requirements and were fully manufactured in the UK in the company's own factory.

The new HT182 trommel, mounted on a steel skid frame, consists of a 1.8M diameter x 8M long barrel and is producing clean stone for a range of applications from contaminated as-dug material at a rate of up to 500 TPH. The heavy duty 100T capacity feed hopper is fed directly from the customers dump trucks. The feed rate of the material into the barrel and barrel rotation speed is regulated via the touch-screen PLC on the powerpack and this is changed to suit the individual customer's material characteristics.

The new range of sizes being produced has added new sales possibilities for the customer and pressure on existing conveyors and crushers has also been lifted to due to the removal of the unwanted contaminated material making production much more efficient.

The overhaul of the customer's existing trommel, which was originally installed in 2004, required the replacement of the worn barrel assembly and associated support roller assemblies. A new hopper feed chute was also fitted to aid with the efficient feeding of material into the barrel without blockages. Down-time for the overhaul was kept to a minimum without disrupting daily quarry operations.

Both trommels will continue to help the customer to maximise his precious existing quarry reserves and minimise waste for the future.
The latest version of the HT182M heavy duty mobile trommel will be exhibited in the demonstration area of this year's Hillhead exhibition. The HT182M was a major hit during the 2010 show and hopes are high that the 2012 show will be no different.

Stelex are heavily involved in projects worldwide in a very varied range of applications and are committed to continuous product development and recognising customer's needs within their product range. Further new releases are planned for the near future.
