Blue Group at Hillhead 2010

Blue Group is exhibiting at the Hillhead quarrying and recycling show and is on Stand Number E12. As a main distributor for Powerscreen® crushing & screening plants and Telestack conveying equipment, the company will be showcasing these products in their display, alongside specialist recycling, shredding, soil remediation and washing plant and equipment. Working closely with their OEM colleagues, Blue has strategically sited their stand to be adjacent to both Powerscreen and Telestack and a number of new products will be displayed and seen at work in the crushing, screening and recycling demonstration areas nearby.

New Powerscreen Products from Blue Group

The new Powerscreen® Warrior 2400 is at the top of the well-established Warrior range of screening plants, designed and built for large-scale operations in the quarrying and recycling industries.



The Warrior 2400 features a robust heavy duty incline screen with a high amplitude triple shaft screen drive. A heavy-duty, high output plant, the versatile Warrior 2400 is able to accept large feed sizes and process up to 700 tonnes per hour. This enables screening, scalping, 2-or 3-way splitting and stockpiling of aggregates, topsoil, coal, construction & demolition waste and iron ore. The Warrior 2400 is perfect for high volume applications that require a versatile screening plant which still offers convenient transportation, fast set-up times, easy operation and maintenance simplicity.

The new Powerscreen® Pegson 1500 Maxtrak features a high performance 1500mm cone which can be used for making aggregates, surface dressings, road-base or rail ballast, with capacities up to 950 tonnes per hour, depending on the material feed sizes and products required.

Specifically developed for larger end users the Pegson 1500 Maxtrak can accept an 'all in' feed from a primary crusher, thereby eliminating the need for pre-screening which would reduce the cubicity of the finished product. The feed hopper is equipped with a level probe which maintains choke feeding of the cone crusher, thereby improving cubical shape and increasing fines production for ‘road-base’ applications. The taper roller bearing design, with hydraulic setting, tramp release and unblocking system, ensures excellent productivity and ease of operation and the metal detection system with integral contaminated material removal reduces the chance of tramp metal from entering the crushing chamber. Dust suppression sprays are also included as standard to reduce environmental emissions. Adjustment can be made ‘on the run’ using touch button controls with direct read-out of closed side setting.

The new Powerscreen® Pegson XA750 jaw crusher is designed and built for primary crushing and includes features that are ideal for both quarrying and recycling applications.

The Pegson XA750 has a highly aggressive crushing action with hydraulic crusher setting adjustment. The high-swing jaw eases material entry into the crushing chamber and the hydraulic adjustment enables crusher setting changes to be made quickly and easily over a wide range, which is particularly suitable for applications where regular jaw setting adjustments are required. The strong I-beam construction of the chassis is designed and built to withstand even the most arduous of conditions and the low ground pressure crawler tracks are site proven for the toughest of terrains.



Telestack Conveyors from Blue Group

Telestack International designs and manufactures a comprehensive programme of conveying systems with both standard and bespoke ranges – all of which are available through Blue Group.

In addition to products and services aimed specifically at the quarrying and aggregate extraction industries, Blue Group is also a main distributor for Doppstadt shredders and chippers, Kiverco recycling plants, Backhus composting equipment and General Kinematics finger screeners and de-stoners. With the increasing emphasis on recycling and reclamation - from secondary aggregates to biomass fuels for power generation – Blue Group is also displaying specialist plant and equipment for this burgeoning marketplace. Amongst this market-specific display are:- A new Blue 620 trommel, with numerous innovative maintenance features such as an easily removable drum screen and an engine which can be hydraulically lowered out of the side of the machine for easy access. A new generation Doppstadt 3060 Bio Power shredding plant, specifically designed for producing bio mass for power generation. The company will also be unveiling a new CUB L Mix soil remediation and mixing plant, ideally suited for mixing of sticky, wet and contaminated soils. Additionally Blue will be displaying the new Matec filter press for dewatering applications, which can be easily incorporated into any modern washing plant to produce high quality clean aggregates and clays to specification and, significantly, make reductions in water usage, settlement pond maintenance, wasteful and costly landfill tipping.
