ROXON Australia has assisted Australian aggregate producer Lima South Quarry in doubling its production capacity with the design and installation of a new $15 million advanced fixed crushing and screening plant. The new plant will be completed in October and will support the operations future growth plans.

Lima South Quarry is a family owned and run business located 200km northeast of Melbourne focusing on the extraction, crushing and screening of hornfels blue metal aggregates and the supply of railways ballast to the region.

ROXON Australia partnered with asphalt plant specialists Astec Australia to design, supply and install the new fixed crushing and screening plant

Prior to the upgrade, Lima South had relied on significant track-mounted mobile aggregate plant. The new fixed crushing plant was installed by ROXON Australia over two stages and will increase the quarry’s output and free up the existing mobile aggregate plant for contract work. Lima South Quarry will transition over to the new $15 million plant in November 2019.

ROXON Australia provided all structural, mechanical and electrical components for the fixed conveyors, as well as the structural steelwork for the crushers, feeders and screening equipment.

In summary, the NEPEAN Conveyors-ROXON Australia Scope of Supply included the following:

  • Design and supply of all structural, mechanical and electrical components for conveyors, including interfaces with Astec’s process equipment
  • Design and supply of structural support steelwork for crushers, screens and feeders
  • Supply of all conveyor components, 19 x off conveyors in total

ROXON Australia General Manager David Lofthouse commented “this is a significant achievement for the ROXON Australia team and one we are really proud of. The project is the first of its kind in Australia and highlights ROXON’s unique capabilities in the design and installation of conveyor systems for the mining and quarry industries”
