Stone Dust Screw Conveyors
Filquip has supplied an Asphalt plant Stone Dust Conditioning system used to load open trucks with the excess stone dust generated by the plant without the requirement for closed tanker trucks or vacuum trucks for removal. The Stone Dust is conveyed by the Screw Conveyor from the Silo out to a point where the truck can be effectively filled.
The following equipment package was supplied by Filquip:
- TC273.6000 Screw Conveyor, 250mm diameter, 6m long in Painted Mild Steel.
- Dustfix Dust Conditioner (Dustfix 40 Model, 40m3/hr capacity).
The use of this system has saved the Asphalt Plant operator $60,000 over the first 3 months of operation from the reduced costs of needing specialist subcontractors to remove the stone dust, the use of open top trucks is a much more cost-effective solution made possible by this Stone Dust Conditioning System.
