The Irish company Roadbridge
, specialized in civil engineering projects, has tested Simex VSE 30 screening bucket
through our importer E&S Machinery. The customer’s need was to select the soil for subsequent transport to a decontamination plant
. In general, the weight of the material greatly affects transport costs and a good screening operation is therefore crucial for reducing costs.
The topsoil on which the Simex VSE 30 worked was of different nature and composition
: the first, very dry, had a strong presence of rocks and stones. In the second case, however, the material was more clayey and heavier, very humid and compacted.
Despite the high difficulty coefficient presented by the topsoil, especially the humid and wet one, the VSE 30 has proved its reliability
, meeting the approval of the customer. Thanks to the quick and instant adjustment of the output size of the screened material
, by a simple control from the operator cabin (Simex patent
), the VSE screening bucket proved to be a very versatile attachment, capable of adapting to the type of soil on which it was working.
With dry material, with a strong presence of rock debris, the operator chose to close the shafts as much as possible (15 mm / 0.6 inch), while, on the other hand, facing clayey material the shafts needed to be opened on their maximum travel range (55 mm / 2.2 inches).
