Horokiwi Quarries Ltd – Low Profile Wash Screen

About the Customer

Horokiwi Quarries Ltd is a premier supplier of quality aggregates to the Wellington region from their quarry located off State Highway 2 between Petone and Wellington.

The quarry produces a wide range of products to ensure customer satisfaction and meet product specification. Products range from specialty sands for the concrete and asphalt industries, basecourse and sealing chip for roading, and builders mix and drainage metal for the home handyman.


Horokiwi Quarries needed a modern solution for processing sealing chip at their plant.


MIMICO Engineering designed, manufactured and installed a Low-Profile Wash Screen for the handling and washing of sealing chip.

The challenge of working with the existing confines of a fixed feed position from a scrubber and fixed discharge conveyor was overcome by minimising deck heights utilising Metso LS modular screen media, and a top mounted vibrating motor mechanism assembly.

Why was MIMICO chosen for the job?

MIMICO brought experience and expertise to this project, along with a level of trust built up over years of working with Horokiwi Quarries.

Project Highlights

  • Designed for purpose to minimise any modifications to existing equipment for a cost-effective solution.
  • Pivoting spray bar assembly for access to top deck media.
  • Metso LS modular screen media installed onto both screen decks for excellent wear life.
  • 5° installation angle.
