Hewitt Robins International supply CEMEX UK with a new Screen in just four weeks

08 Mar 2018

CEMEX UK, Leamouth Wharf, is a busy operation located in Southampton. The wharf supplies a wide range of high-quality aggregates to landscapers, builders and other businesses working on construction projects in the Hampshire region. Its busy riverside operation relies on efficient and dependable processing equipment to maintain a regular flow of building materials to its customers.

The original Finedoor screen, operated by the site was in poor condition and required replacement, to enable the company to maintain fast-paced production demands.

CEMEX UK awarded the contract to Hewitt Robins to replace the screen within an 8-10 week lead time. However, at the time of placing the order, the existing machine had a severe breakdown and CEMEX UK required an earlier delivery time. Hewitt Robins fulfilled this customer requirement by completing the design and manufacture of a bespoke, made-to-measure screen in just four weeks.

The V-13 1.8 x 4.0m Primary Double Deck Inclined Screen was supplied to CEMEX UK and comprised a 450mm feed box with rubber liners, 150mm discharge lips with liners, support springs and a v-belt drive including an IE3 15kw motor. The original Finedoor screen used SCS polyurethane screening media, so Hewitt Robins designed the new screen to accommodate their existing media so that it could be retrofitted on site.

3MB Engineering Ltd completed the removal and installation in just under four days which also included removing the roof and conveyor above the screen. The Hewitt Robins screen was installed in February and has provided Leamouth Wharf with the tonnages and efficiencies required.

Peter Lamb, Wharf Manager, commented, ‘Hewitt Robins responded quickly and efficiently to all of our requests. The new screen is performing well and there have been no issues with it since its installation’
