Land reclamation in Central America

An HT182M Mobile Hercules Trommel has been sold and installed into Central America by a European company. The Trommel will remain in one position during its life span so was sold without its running gear.


Rock blasted and dug from the quarry face is fed to the Trommel, which is positioned before the primary crusher. Clay is removed during the screening along with 10kg, 40kg, 60kg and 200kg sizes. The clean stone is being used to build river dykes using corbels both above and below the water level. Also construction of a sea wall using rock fill and drainage sluices.


As part of the contract the machine was specified to operate in high temperature and high humidity and from a remote location. The Trommel which requires minimum maintenance and supervision was ideally suited to this.
