Leading manufacturer of quarry processing equipment, Hewitt Robins International, a TATA Enterprise, has recently supplied a replacement screen for Summerleaze at their Denham Quarry.
Founded in 1928, Summerleaze is a privately-owned company, whose origins are in the field of mineral extraction.
The extraction of sand and gravel has been at the core of Summerleaze’s operations since its foundation and has provided the financial base for subsequent business developments. Today, the Company’s principal gravel processing operations are based in the Thames Valley at sites in Maidenhead, Bray, Burnham and more recently Denham.
Over the last 80 years, sand and gravel from Summerleaze quarries have played a major part in supplying the aggregate needed for the construction of many thousands of homes, offices, schools, hospitals and roads in the Thames Valley. Over this time almost 8 million tonnes of aggregate have been processed and supplied to projects such as these.
Following a successful tender, Hewitt Robins engineers visited the site and subsequently designed a bespoke retrofit Hewitt Robins V11 1.8m x 5.0mm Single deck screen. The Hewitt Robins screens used the same motor size so no additional electrical work would be required. The screen was custom designed to replace the existing screen and to re-use the existing PPL Screening media.
The whole project was subsequently completed and the new screen commissioned in a 2 day shut-down period by Hewitt Robins engineers.
Steve Rackley, Quarry Manager commented “We have been using Hewitt Robins screens for over 20 years and our existing screen was in need of replacement. Hewitt Robins has replaced many of our existing screens in the past. The screen was made to measure and so the installation went very smoothly and the new screen was installed and commissioned within the allowed time frame. The screen was fully commissioned by the Hewitt Robins engineers and now gives us a better screening over the deck which is a big advantage to this plant’
