Conway Dartford recycling facility - a UK showcase for aggregate recovery

Facilities at F M Conway Ltd's recycling plant at Dartford, Kent, are described. These include a 14-strong fleet of unconventional mobile concrete batch mixer lorries and a special high-pressure water washing plant for cleaning and screening up to 80t/h of dirty raw feed material into reusable sand and aggregate. This investment follows on from the purchase in 2001 of a conventional 350t/h crushing and screening plant, and 2002 of a mobile Foamix plant, which has the ability to produce either cement or bitumen stabilised road base materials. This specialised equipment was also joined in the spring of 2004 by a unique purpose-built plant which will recycle up to 95% drainage waste from its Cleansing Division activities and transfer the recovered grit and sand to the washing plant for cleansing and subsequent use in concrete production. The 14-acre Dartford Recycling facility is believed to be one of the largest and most advanced in Europe. For the covering abstract see ITRD E145817
