News Double celebration for Tema


Mountsorrel Quarry, owned and operated by Lafarge Aggregates, and one of the largest granite production sites in Europe, has reached an agreement with Tema (Machinery) Ltd for the supply of 12 new double deck screening machines which will be manufactured by Siebtechnik GmbH in Germany. All screens will be 2.7 m x 10m in size, and will replace an existing installation based on GEC equipment, which has been in operation for over 20 years. The screening plant had a capacity in excess of 2,000 tph. One of the main duties is the manufacture of track ballast used by Network Rail, with a large range of premium aggregates produced for asphalt and concrete used in many construction projects in the Midlands and the South East, including the M25 widening.


Important factors in the decision were that the new screens needed to fit into the existing space, and Tema / Siebtechnik offered a design which complied with this including additional other significant design benefits such as a Pod bearing supported drive system and an innovative support structure for the electric motors.


The very close co-operation and levels of service provided on an earlier installation supplied by the Tema / Siebtechnik Group was also a decisive factor.


For both organisations this contract marks significant milestones in each Company’s history as 2011 brings up the


50th anniversary of Tema (Machinery) Ltd, whilst Mountsorrel Quarry will celebrate an amazing 200 years of operation. This order award brings the number of screens supplied / to be supplied by (Tema Machinery) to Lafarge Aggregates in the past 12 months to 17. Tema (Machinery) Ltd is part of the Steinhaus group which consists of over 40 companies, and employs a workforce of around 2,000 people worldwide.
