Our mobile washing plant prepares aggregate lifted on-site for immediate reuse. The plant can be set up and working within a day and can be packed up and moved again in the same timeframe.
Once the plant is up and running, it takes only a few people to keep an eye on the day-to-day running and to keep feeding the machine with aggregate.
Before the stone is washed, it’s graded mechanically into different sized aggregates (6mm, 10mm & 14mm). Most of the foreign material in the aggregate is also taken out at this phase. Once graded, the stone can be washed and collected again in a process that takes a matter of minutes. This reduces the natural resources consumed by over 25%, reduces waste to landfill and eliminates the extraction and transportation CO2 that would be generated by bringing new aggregate to site.
The Environment Agency and our ISO14001 accreditation body reacted so positively to the facility and the impact it’s had on our carbon footprint that we went straight out and bought a second one.
