Screening bucket makes sense for 365

Digger Blogger | 12:40, Wed May 31 2017

365 Concrete, a concrete supply company based in Shepperton, Surrey, has just taken delivery of a new Remu 3160 screening bucket for its Volvo loading shovel.

365 runs a volumetric batching plant operation and at its site in Shepperton, it loads trucks with the ingredients ready to go out to customers’ sites.  

To process recycled materials, the company has tried various screeners and a static crusher.  However, they decided they probably needed a screening bucket as the other kit took up lots of room and resource.

Reg Gorman, the owner of 365 Concrete, says: “When we found out we could get a screening bucket for our loading shovel it was the ideal solution for us. Our loading shovel isn’t used fully every day so it was a great fit for multi use of our equipment and made sound economical sense.”

After a bit of homework, Reg found Worsley Plant, who suggested the Remu 3160. Brian Carroll, general manger southern for Worsley Plant set him up with a three-day trial.

“We decided the bucket was the solution for us in the first hour of the trial – it was immediately obvious that it was ideal for our operation.  Call it a eureka moment!”

Now since taking delivery of the bucket, aggregate and concrete can be screened for recycling. Reg Gorman reckons he will save 40% of bought-in product costs with the screener.

“Now it’s tried and tested following the trial I will recommend the Remu screening bucket to anyone.  It’s the ideal solution for our needs,” he says.
