Jeremy Bishop Haulage (JBH) is scaling up productivity with one high powered machine performing a double duty at its Devon site.
A new Terex Finlay J-1170AS – supplied by Finlay Plant SW – is carrying out work previously undertaken by two machines at the company’s inert waste recycling facility at Lee Mill, on the outskirts of Plymouth.
The J-1170AS is the latest Terex Finlay plant purchased by JBH. Other machinery currently on site include a 595, as well as a four-way 684 and 883.
The new plant is producing the highest specification of recycled products, working alongside the existing Terex Finlay plant on the site in a streamlined and highly efficient manner.
The recycled products are processed from concrete and brick rubble, brought in as construction and demolition waste from building sites.
This material is initially processed by the company’s existing Terex Finlay 883, which screens out to a minus 50mm material, a 50mm to 75mm aggregate and plus 75mm product.
The 50 to 75mm and the plus 75mm material is then taken to the new Terex Finlay J-1170AS.
This new machine – which is fed by a swing shovel – is doing the work previously carried out on site by a Terex Finlay J-1175 crusher and 595 screener.
The new crusher creates one Type 1 product, which can then be processed through the Terex Finlay 684 on site, which produces a dust, 10mm, 20mm and 40mm chippings.
Gareth Johnson, MD of Finlay Plant SW – part of the Finlay Group of companies – has worked with the team at JBH to introduce the new plant on site and to co-ordinate its workings with the other Terex Finlay machines.
The new addition means the Terex Finlay 595 is freed-up to carry out other works on site, while the J-1175 has been part-exchanged towards the new J-1170AS. Gareth organised a demonstration of the J-1170AS prior to purchase to ensure the new plant was correctly specified.
Matthew Shute, Senior Site Representative at JBH, said: “The new machine is saving on fuel, as well as the cost and wear of a secondary machine.
“It’s a very good crusher and is producing a very good product.
“We wanted to try something with a screenbox to see if it would work on site with our application and it has proved very capable of doing that.
“We are seeing volumes of between 100 and 150 tonnes an hour being produced – and that’s considerably more than before.
“The machine is also easy to move around the site, which is another benefit.”
JBH is a long established haulage and inert waste recycling specialist, offering a range of tipper hire options and – from its Lee Mill weighbridge and recycling centre – inert waste recycling and aggregate supplies. The family business, which has many years’ experience in the industry, has a commitment to quality and personal service – and introduces the latest technology to its site to ensure the smooth-running of its operations.
The company has a long-standing relationship with Finlay Plant SW, which has helped the company build up this productive fleet of machines, which operate across all areas of the business.
Matthew added: “We’ve been with Finlay Plant SW for more than 10 years.
“During this time we have been helped by Gareth to specify the right plant for our needs and always have excellent service and back-up support.”
A recent addition to the range from Terex Finlay, the J-1170AS jaw crusher provides the flexibility of a crushing and screening plant in one machine.
It features a detachable on-board sizing screen, which provides high capacity with large reduction ratios.
This jaw chamber configuration can be set up specifically for quarrying applications or processing construction demolition debris using the hydraulic release chamber option.
The J-1170AS also features a heavy duty variable speed VGF and integrated prescreen giving excellent production throughput in quarrying, mining, demolition and recycling applications.
Gareth Johnson added: “The J-1170AS was launched in 2015 and has become a very popular piece of equipment.
“It’s highly productive, versatile and economical and is really proving its worth on site for JBH.
“It’s working well with the other Terex Finlay plant we’ve introduced to the site and JBH’s products are sought after due to their high specification attained by the screening of the product prior to crushing.”
