One Stop Shop

Quarrying is just one of this month's featured industries, but illustrates the diversity of applications involved. At its very simplest quarrying amounts to cutting material out of the landscape, reducing it to useful sized particles, sorting and segregating and presenting the finished materials for transport and further use in other products. Each of the processes within this chain of events demands skilled and efficient planning as well as competent integration into the whole production scheme...

It is indisputable that the total body of knowledge required to service all aspects of solids and bulk handling and processing is huge - and growing constantly.

Landmark Development


Drax Power Station in North Yorkshire is a prominent landmark, its 850 ft high chimney surrounded by twelve cooling towers visible for several miles. With a generating capacity of almost 4000 MW it is the largest coal fired plant in western Europe. It is also the most efficient of its kind in UK. Nonetheless, further increases in carbon emission efficiency were demanded, leading to the current project to convert three of the six generating units to run on biomass. The first was converted during 2013, with the second running on 85% biomass during last year. A third unit is due for completion late this year or early next, with a possible option on the fourth unit under consideration

A Moving Story

Since the dawn of civilisation materials have been conveyed, by men and women toting sacks on yokes, by pack animals, carts and more recently using mechanical conveyances. They all faced the same challenges – maintaining quality whilst negotiating bends, inclines, vertical rises and falls in unforgiving climates as well as delivering according to demand as economically as possible....
