The versatile Colt 1000 screen is suitable for a wide range of applications

B‌ased in Carnforth, Lancashire/UK P&L Barton Ltd provide plant and services on a sub-contract or hire only basis, offering a wide range of services to the construction, groundwork, civil engineering, quarrying, recycling and haulage industries. In recent years EvoQuip has become part of the fleet, and P&L Barton took receipt of their first EvoQuip Colt 1000 in June. Since then the machine has been on hire contacts in multiple configurations to suit the required job sites.

One recent application has been to produce limestone walling stone for one of the regular clients where space was limited. P&L Barton set about reconfiguring the Colt 1000 scalping screen so that both conveyors discharged out the same side into segregated areas, maximizing the area available, eliminating double handling and showing how versatile the Colt is. Commenting on the Colt’s performance, Richard Barton, Plant Manager at P&L Barton said: “The Colt 1000 is the perfect machine for us due to its flexibility. Being suited to scalping and fine screening and the ability to quickly convert from 3 way to 2 way split and to swap conveyor configurations means it’s suitable for many applications and job sites.”

In the short time that P&L Barton have owned the Colt 1000, the machine has been out working on various projects. “We have been able to run the machine in 2 way split on one project then convert it so that mids and fines are discharged on the same side on a really compact site, and in standard set up on another site. With the range of media options available I don’t think there is any job she can’t do,” continued Barton.

 

The highly adaptable Colt 1000 scalping screen is able to operate in both heavy-duty scalping and precision screening applications and will manage the most difficult of materials. The Colt 1000 achieves a compact footprint combining versatility and mobility. Flexibility is enhanced with configurable conveyor options and two-way split conversion. Featuring an aggressive double deck screen, variable screening angle with numerous screen media options, broad fines conveyor, quick set up time and tall discharge heights ensures the Colt 1000 distinguishes itself amongst its competition.
