P J Thory, based in Peterborough in the UK, has introduced a state-of-the-art wash plant to its aggregates processing operations. Made up of an M2500 and AggMax 83R from CDE, the system is now processing 1,000 tonnes of material per day at sizes 10, 20 and 40 mm (0.4, 0.8 and 1.6 inch) in addition to concrete sand for its customers around the region.
The M2500 boasts feeding, screening, sand washing and stockpiling in one compact unit and can produce four aggregate products and a single sand to the required specification. Working in conjunction with the M2500 is the AggMax 83R, an enhanced log washer system that gets the aggregates to the correct concrete specification through high attrition scrubbing, final rinsing and grading.
The equipment was supplied by Aggregate Processing Solutions, the specialist washing arm of the Finlay Group. Jamie Thory, grandson of founder Peter, said: “We were looking for a long term, complete washing solution and this system is just that. It’s proved itself to be reliable and is washing material to the highest standard we’ve seen. As a company we gain great confidence and reassurance that we have the service and back-up from APS.”
