Aggregate Processing Solutions, the specialist washing arm of the Finlay Group, has unveiled the latest edition to its portfolio at Hillhead 2010 – introduced after almost five years of research and development.
Billed by the company as ‘the contractor’s dream’ the APS-100AJ is a unique, multi-component material washing system, developed for the quarrying, recycling and remediation industries.
Central to its design is the introduction of a highly efficient, extreme duty linear multi-deck screen, with ‘Atri-Jet’ technology, developed by Aggregate Processing Solutions to help remove fines.
The unique, adjustable Atri-Jet system also ensures cleanliness of the final products. Floaters are removed and contained, and the plant also enhances the removal of lignite, wood, ash and clinker.
This is supported by a TRIO Course Material Washer, which scrubs to dissolve clays and separates lightweight materials.
John Dunne, managing director of Aggregate Processing Solutions, said: "The APS-100AJ is a culmination of many years experience in the field.
"Designed in England and assembled in Northern Ireland, it has been developed to address a number of important requirements to meet the growing needs of the industry.
"This includes an easy to deliver format, with the entire plant arriving on site in just two lorry movements.
"The unit is also installed under a fast track programme, ready to operate just two hours after delivery.
"With planning restrictions an important factor on site, it is designed to a small footprint – just 12 metres by 2.9 metres in size – with best in class relocation ability.
"Economy is also another important factor, with the ATP-100AJ easy to match existing mobile units to the system – and using up to 40 per cent less water than standard washing systems.
"It also accepts an ‘all in feed’ where fines, sand and stone get thoroughly scrubbed by the TRIO Course Material Washer."
Other features include a self powered capability, with an on-board generator and PLC control, which is pre-wired with an onboard control panel.
Effective maintenance is introduced with features including easy access to all components and an on-board lifting beam to aid wear part replacement.
