In the heart of Poroti’s Brewer’s Quarry, Clements Contractors Ltd and MIMICO forge a partnership that redefines quarry operations. Quarry Manager, Gus Hawkins, shares insights on how the MDS M412 Trommel has revolutionised their processes and elevated their capabilities.
Liberating Rock from Debris
One of the primary challenges in quarry operations is efficiently separating raw feed material from dirt and fines to obtain the desired rock product. Gus Hawkins acknowledges the MDS Trommel M412’s pivotal role in achieving this goal. Rather than resorting to the traditional method of crushing rock to obtain gabion or rip rap-sized products, the trommel screen offers a more resource-efficient alternative.
Hawkins highlights the user-friendly nature of the MDS Trommel M412. The machine boasts preset settings that simplify operation, while its one-push auto-run feature streamlines the start-up process. This ease of operation enhances productivity and minimises downtime, allowing the focus to optimise material separation.
One of the standout features of the MDS Trommel M412 is its exceptional mobility. Hawkins finds it remarkably easy to move the trommel from one location to another, thanks to its wireless remote control. Moreover, the machine exhibits exceptional manoeuvrability on ramps, facilitating seamless transitions between different piles of materials.
