CV217 VSI manufacturing sand from limestone

GLENDINNING BOOSTS SUSTAINABILITY CREDENTIALS THROUGH SAND MANUFACTURING

EJW Glendinning, the Devon based independent supplier of quarrying and concrete products, has successfully begun manufacturing sand from limestone at its Linhay Quarry in Ashburton, Devon, using one of our CV217 VSI's.

Following discussions with Sandvik ( we had previously supplied mobile equipment to the company ), EJW Glendinning decided to acquire a new, state of the art CV217 VSI in order to manufacture sand for its concrete operations. Through its ready-mix business, which is based around Exeter, Plymouth and Ashburton, the company is now able to comprehensively supply the Devon construction market. The manufactured sand which the CV217 is used to produce has to be of the highest quality as all of Glendinning's ready-mixed concrete products conform to BS EN 206 and BS 8500-2 performance criteria, and are quality assured through ISO 9001 accreditation.

AR demolition putting a Rammer hammer to work

AR DEMOLITION RELY ON RAMMER POWER AND PRECISION

AR Demolition, one of the UK's fastest-growing demolition companies, has put its faith in the power, productivity, performance and precision of two Rammer hammers. Both have proved to be highly effective, but were chosen for very different reasons.

The purchase of the Rammer 5011 and 3288 hammers effectively sums up the AR Demolition's approach to business. Emphasis is placed on providing customers with a quality service, whilst giving its operators the very best equipment. While both hammers are both performing breaking duties, the factors in their selection were markedly different. AR Demolition's tool of choice, the Rammer 5011, utilizes maximum power with an operator-selected slow impact rate to provide optimum breaking and concrete shattering power. The Rammer 3288 enables the company to penetrate ground precisely where it needs to without causing damage to the surrounding infrastructure, but at the same time hit it with maximum force.
