QMS provides a washing screen to Leith Aggregates

24th December 2015 12:19

Leith Quarries based in Aberdeen required a screen to replace a worn out powerscreen. QMS were able to custom design a replacement engineered to fit the existing structures, saving valuable time and money.

The screen supplied SVI-F02M 1.52 x5.0m 2 deck was manufactured to reuse the existing Scandura Module 600 polyurethane screen media.

The screens are of bolted construction for ease of maintenance and incorporate replaceable bolt on feed and discharge lips. The specification included a support frame complete with integral rubber lined belly chute and twin discharge. Support springs, spring bases, pivoting rosta motor mount, motor, v belt drives and pulleys. The screen was manufactured in 6 weeks and installed and commissioned by QMS engineers

Louie Gray (Project Manager, Leith Aggregates) commented:

“The screen box frame was designed to be supported from existing steelwork thus retaining original platforms and handrails. The simplicity of the bearing units allows them to be removed from the screen box and refurbished in workshop conditions or having a rebuilt bearing unit in stores for a quick change over. In general it is a very quiet and smooth running machine “

All QMS SVI Inclined screens come fitted with modular vibrator units.  The extremely compact and interchangeable units make maintenance far easier compared to a conventional solid shaft design. With two bearings per vibrator pod (4 per screen) they offer exceptional long bearing life. The 2 pods are connected through the centre of the machine using a cardan shaft. This can easily be disconnected during maintenance. The vibratory mechanism is located at centre of gravity, giving circular motion in all points of the screen.

QMS offer a service exchange on Modular Vibrating Units in the event of a breakdown.

The QMS range of aggregate processing equipment includes jaw & Cone crushers, Inclined & Horizontal screens, Conveyors, feeders, complete modular plants. 100% manufactured by QMS in the UK, all equipment is backed up by exceptional customer service and parts support.
