GBM UK chooses Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck for all-year-round operation

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

A Doncaster-based recycling company is planning to beat the freeze this winter thanks to investment in new plant.

Soil production at GBM UK is said to have ground to a halt for several months as old screening machinery struggled to cope with wet material.

But the delivery of a Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck is reported to have enabled the company to establish an all-year-round operation for the first time.

The machine, specified by Finlay Plant Northern – part of the Finlay Group of companies – proved its value during a trial last year and is now battling through soil, sand, brick and concrete on site in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

Paul Waite, area sales manager at GBM UK, said: “Soil production accounts for 75% of saleable products from our Doncaster site, but we’ve previously been forced to stop production between November and February because our machines kept clogging up with wet material.

“The Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck copes well with the soil, even in wet weather, and that means we’ll be able to screen constantly throughout the year with increased throughput as well.”

GBM UK’s recycling centre turns material brought to the site by local authorities, utility companies and site developers into oversize, 75mm-10mm and sand.

According to Terex Finlay, the plant operates near to blockage and maintenance-free and has a processing range of 1mm-120mm.

"A high-performance, two-deck screen is at the heart of the machine with a rubber mat top deck and state-of-the-art Flip-Flow technology below," said Martin Nairn of Finlay Plant Northern.
