Oliva Giovanni, an Italian earthmoving operator, thanks to a Simex VSE 30 screening bucket
, carried out the remediation of the land surrounding a construction site
, selecting and separating the soil from the demolition waste
. Sifting soil from stones, roots and debris made it possible to quickly restore the green area of the house involved in the renovation work, reusing 100% of the material present on site.
Finally, the waste material was easily disposed of in the appropriate plants.
Reclaiming soil directly on-site results in net savings, avoiding the huge costs associated with the purchase and transport of new raw materials and significantly lowering disposal costs.
The screening operation using a VSE bucket therefore guarantees the double advantage of saving both in terms of disposal
– delivering only a minimum part of the total material – and in terms of supplying new soil for the refurbishment of green areas
. The land reclaimed and cleaned from debris is immediately usable, aerated and of a size suitable for subsequent planting.
Despite the high soil humidity caused by the intense rains in the days prior to the intervention, production was still efficient, between 20 and 25 m³/h.
The rapid adjustment of the output size
– an exclusive Simex patent that allows the shafts of the buckets to be instantly distanced and closened – was an added value for Mr. Oliva: «In these humid conditions soil tends to clump; it’s difficult to achieve a satisfactory screening result. The possibility of spacing the shafts with a simple command in the cabin
added to the particular design of the VSE screening tools in the configuration for humid soils, allowed me to obtain the fine soil size
(0-15 mm) useful for land remediation".
Simex VSE screening buckets aim to recover and reclaim the soil resulting from demolition and construction sites in a sustainable and circular perspective.
