Fahey's Concrete's new Terex Finlay crushers in action
Two new machines are helping Fahey’s Concrete to get “maximum advantage” from its aggregate processing plant.
The company has introduced a Terex Finlay J-1175 jaw crusher and C-1540 RS cone crusher, delivered from Finlay Plant SW, at its Camelford site in the north of County Cornwall, south-west England.
Working with Gareth Johnson, managing director of Finlay Plant SW, Fahey Concrete chose the Terex Finlay J-1175, complete with an independent pre-screen, and a Terex Finlay C-1540 RS complete with pre-screen and a side conveyor.
Johnson said: “The J-1175 has an independent pre-screen, with a very aggressive action, which eradicates as many fines as possible, prior to the rock entering the jaw chamber.
“Following the J-1175 is the C-1540 RS. The crushed product passes directly over an on-board 1.83m x 1.22m single deck screen, prior to the cone chamber.
“Finlay Group fitted a side conveyor under the screen, giving the option of a screened product from the J-1175.
“After the material has passed through the cone chamber, it is then conveyed over a 3.66m x 1.52m single deck screen, oversize transfer conveyor, recirculating conveyor and fines conveyor.
“The cone crusher is also constantly choke fed, which helps develop a precise shape for the product and eradicates any shale.
“With the J-1175 and the C-1540 RS being perfectly matched, we have tried to cater as closely as possible to the customer’s needs.”
One of the biggest concrete producers in County Devon and Cornwall, Fahey’s Concrete is a family-run business, with more than 35 years’ experience.
As well as processing gritstone for stone mastic asphalt, the Camelford site produces various other products to cater for its growing customer base, and both machines from Finlay Plant SW are on tracks and able to move into areas around the quarry as required to carry out this function.
