First Hercules Trommel into the Caribbean.

Stelex Engineering Limited. the UK-based sole manufacturer and supplier of the original Hercules heavy duty trommel are pleased to announce the installation of their first trommel in the Caribbean. The trommel will help the customer to produce a selection of clean material sizes from as-blasted and dumped ‘waste’ materials by removing unwanted fines contamination from within the feed.

The model HT233, mounted on concrete foundations, is the largest in the company’s current production range and is rated up to 1000 TPH and is being fed directly from a fleet of dump trucks into its large fully-lined hopper. The 2.3M diameter x 12M long barrel is producing three sizes plus oversize and is specially designed to suit the customer’s individual production requirements and also meet the sites demanding weather conditions.

The fines material and clean stone is removed from underneath the trommel directly via loading shovels. Oversize stone is rejected from the end of the barrel and collected for further site processing.

The new range of sizes being produced has added new sales possibilities for the customer and further site expansions are being considered to capitalise on these improvements. Pressure on existing conveyors and crushers has also been lifted to due to the removal of the contaminated material making production much more efficient.

Stelex are pleased that the value of the trommel is being recognised by customers around the world in a time when quarries wish to maximise on their precious existing quarry reserves.
