Tarmac - Broom

Material Source:
Feed material with a high sand to stone ratio.

Equipment Installed:
AggreSand™ 206 modular wash plant (3 deck),  AggreScrub™ 150, bespoke feed system, stockpiling conveyors, centralised control panel.

Project Requirements:
To deliver a low level, low ground pressure footprint, high capacity, high efficiency processing plant that provides two premium grade sands and three quality aggregates at 350tph.

DUO's Solution:
Acquire information on their feed material, end user, and market demands were fundamental to develop a solution specific for the client. This involved supplying a plant that has the capability to process double the capacity of the previous fixed plant. The end result - a very innovative and compact design that provides the ability, especially on sand production, to have ultimate flexibility: making two sands at varying cuts - 0-4mm concrete sand and a 0-2mm fine sand.

Project Success:
A totally self-contained plant with the flexibility to develop where you want to go as the market trends change. This plant is the ideal solution for sites that were previously not economically viable due to cost of penalties. This plant makes many more sites and materials bring value to the market place.

Miles Dobson, Head of Manufacturing, Lafarge Tarmac, commented: “It has given us a great deal of flexibility in the market. We started here with a smaller plant again supplied by TWS and Duo PLC and after looking at the market and the changes, we opted for a larger plant that has allowed for more flexibility to better serve the market and demands. It’s modular in design, so we can change the modules and we also have the ability to add a larger sand plant if the market changes. Moreover on the back of that we have built a strong relationship with Duo PLC and TWS and are excited about further installations underway at other Lafarge Tarmac sites. The fantastic thing about the AggreSand ™ is the modular design, allowing us to be flexible and fast in the market, it allows us to react quickly and in many ways, as we can see at this open day event, the proof is in the pudding, it was a very swift installation, running efficiently and is producing what we anticipated.”
