Designed for duty: durable Screens Engineered by Tyrone International

Precision-engineered components designed to withstand the realities of work on site are the hallmark of Tyrone International’s wash plant. Designing and manufacturing in response to clients’ needs and based on their real life experience, Tyrone International has continually innovated and iterated its wash plant for durability.

Durable screens

Part of this is because of Tyrone International’s choice of materials when designing components. Recognising that any wash plant has a hard life, Tyrone International chose durable and flexible materials for key plant components, ensuring maximum up-time and, therefore, a major reduction in costly stoppages and maintenance.

Ian Pickavance, director and co-founder of Kealshore Ltd., a leading recycler in the Northwest, singled out a particular component for praise, saying the focus on durability was a real leap forward on the plant previously used by the company: the screens on the wash plant the company recently purchased from Tyrone International were proving a real asset, said Pickavance.

“The decks are all plastic [whereas] the old ones were steel. We were spending a lot of money on steel screens; this is one of the reasons why we looked at a new plant when we did the costings on the old plant. The new plant is now so much more efficient,”

said Pickavance.

Engineered for success

Design and competent-level decisions such as manufacturing screen decks from polymer make real and noticeable improvements in the expected lifetime of machinery.

Matthew Johnson, Kealshore’s recycling yard manager explained that the new wash plant is both more reliable and easier to maintain.

“Maintenance-wise, it’s so much easier on this plant,”

said Johnson.

This kind of focus on the reality of the job is deep in Tyrone International’s DNA because its engineering drives success for everyone: Tyrone International has intimate knowledge of not only its own plant, but also the needs of customers and the demands made of heavy duty equipment.

“They’ve always been really good with us. Even though we didn’t have a wash plant with them [before] they’ve always helped us,”

said Pickavance.

With wash plant designed from the ground up for reliability, you can keep running and running.

Driving productivity: maximising wash plant TPH and increasing efficiency

Wash plant needs to have two key attributes: the ability to sort large amounts of materials as rapidly as possible, and to be able to work without fear of breakdown. In other words, a serious wash plant should deliver a high tons per hour (TPH) rate and be durable enough to withstand both continuous operation and the harsh conditions typical in construction.

Precision engineered but durable, Tyrone International has invested in our design and manufacturing processes to ensure our plant does just this.

Take our T-Sand range: T-Sand works lightning fast, with plant available that can remove silt and clay impurities, as well as size and de-water sand before drying, sizing and blending it into final products, processing from 40 TPH up to 250 TPH, depending on your throughput needs. With ease of use, accessibility, energy and cost efficiency, quality of build components and productivity rates second to none, there is a T-Sand for almost any application for unrivalled de-watering performance.

It’s not just sand, though. This is true across our entire wash plant range, and our plant is noted for its ability to accept a varied plant feed. Our recycled aggregate wash plant is used nationwide to process combination feeds of recycled materials containing anything from ‘muckaway’, to utility waste, trommel fines and sand. It works seamlessly and without slowdown even when the ratio of the sand/silt fraction varies in every bucket load going into the plant. One client recently found that while their wash plant was specified to process 120 TPH, in fact it achieved an average of 140 TPH.

tph you can COUNT on

Anyone in the industry will know that reaching nominal TPH is not the norm, let alone exceeding it, due to the harsh life typically experienced by wash plant. Breakdowns and regular maintenance are not only a fact of life, but also a real problem on site, often grinding work to a halt. At Tyrone International we have kept this in mind, aiming not only for a high TPH ‘headline figure’ that might impress in a brochure, but also ensuring reliability and aiming for a reduced maintenance schedule.

High-quality components and precision manufacturing make handling heavy and mixed loads a breeze. Our turnkey processing systems are not only made to get you up and running rapidly, but to keep running even in adverse conditions and in the face of complex loads. Designed and built for industry and by engineers with decades of real world experience, Tyrone International’s wash plant is a real solution for real sites.
