Helping to repair the hurricane damaged levees

Mobile Hercules Trommel Screen is helping to repair the hurricane damaged levees in New Orleans.


In 2007 the Trommel, which is one of five ordered by the customer for rental across the USA, was contracted to a quarry in Arkansas, USA. The Trommel produces four sizes of materials from a very abrasive blast sand rock which has a silica content of 85%. The unit is producing around 450 tph of different sizes of Rip Rap materials which are transported down the Arkansas river by barges to the quarry company's own distribution centre, where large tonnages of this Rip Rap material are sold on for the rebuilding of the hurricane-damaged levees around New Orleans.


The machine , a model HT182M, is one of a new generation of road tow-able Trommel screens which have been designed for long or short term contracts within the quarry and mining industries. The unit is a modular design with relocation in mind, and can be easily moved along a blast face wall or relocated to a new site.
