Hercules Heavy Duty Trommel for France.

Stelex Engineering Limited. 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 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.
