Mobile Hercules trommel starts work in the UK.

Stelex Engineering Limited. have installed their first mobile trommel into the UK. The HT182M heavy duty Hercules trommel was supplied without its running gear as the machine will not be moved.

The trommel was delivered to a UK port on its running gear, then broken down into lighter loads for loading on board a ship. This sailed to the customers own docks for off loading and erection.

The trommel is producing three sizes plus oversize. The first size is dirt or contaminated material which is sent on for further processing. The other two sizes plus the oversize are used for armour rock which is being used on various sea defence projects in the UK and mainland Europe.

The feeder and screen are driven hydraulically from a electric hydraulic power pack located alongside the unit. Drive to the barrel is by a ‘live drive' system with hydraulic motors through forged steel support rollers, which are low maintenance and adjustable.

The trommel is self cleaning,due to the rolling action induced by the larger rocks, and offers the benefit of unmanned operation.
