Construction And Demolition Aggregates Recycling Plant For New Commonwealth Games page 2 of 3

We knew we had the expertise and technology to convert this sticky clay bound material into saleable building materials. The Paterson’s material is extremely variable and it was critical that we designed and manufactured a plant which could handle these variations. On a recent site visit we witnessed at first hand the quality of clean aggregate and sand being produced.”

Thousands of tonnes to process

Paterson’s approached Blue Machinery (Scotland) Ltd as they required a Recycling Wash Plant to deal with tens of thousands of tons of construction, demolition and excavation waste.


Extensive initial testing and sieve analysis highlighted that the material to be processed had a very high silt content of 30% plus. After consultation with Blue Machinery (Scotland) Ltd and Paterson’s and vigorous analysis on the feed product, Terex Washing Systems proposed their range of cyclone separators and utilized a prewash to manage this high level of silt (less than 63 micron material).

Sean Loughran, Director of TWS commented “Blue Machinery (Scotland) Ltd have a strong history in washplant sales in Scotland with the previous Powerscreen Brand and were the natural choice as the dealer for TWS in this area. The sales team is highly respected within the Scottish market not only for the high quality products they sell but also for their high levels of application and technical knowledge.

The Paterson’s Plant is a demonstration of what can be achieved from initial conception through to the production of high quality products. ”
