Earthworks projects on the larger scale will always have need of crushing, mixing or transporting materials. This is where iSeekplant and our extensive network of rental services across Australia will help connect you with the right providers to meet your needs.
For example, crushers would be used to break apart waste materials prior to recycling. They are also used during the mining process to separate materials in a solid mix of unprocessed ore. Depending on the materials used, the machinery type and crushing method will vary. Some of the crushing mechanisms used with the equipment listed on iSeekplant include an impactor setup, jaw, or cone.
Our expansive directory contains many conveyor sizes to accommodate the transportation of materials over short distances. This could be from the excavation site across to the separating plant, or a different setup depending on the scale of your project.
Another common addition to mining projects is screening machines. With the function of sorting materials based on particle size, this machine is also effective at completing small amounts of crushing as well.
For those who need to homogenise their materials instead of separating them, the wide range of pugmills available through our database will be of use to you. Ideally suited for asphalt mixing and concreting, these machines can effectively mix certain materials until they are much more workable.
Our online database is continually growing and evolving, providing individuals and businesses alike with the means to search, engage and hire reputable hire services. Our easy to navigate platform can be used in two ways. Firstly, you can simply type in what you’re looking for and where, and our search engine will produce the best match results based on this information. From there you’re free to search through the businesses at your leisure and read up on each to make sure you find the best match.
If you’re still unsure what crushing, screening, conveying, or pugmill hire best suits your needs in Adelaide then don’t hesitate to give us a call for a helping hand. You can reach us on 1300 691 912.
