Soil screening allows the soil to be revitalised, cutting down waste, reducing landfills demands, and enabling the repurpose of the material into other products. At Intelligro, high-quality soil is used as a substantial part of their special blends, which, they say, is the secret ingredient for their superior product range.

Looking for the best solution to minimise its impact on the surrounding environment and to keep up with the increasing demand of their business, Intelligro required a tracked trommel screen that offered excellent productivity output, with the capacity to eventually supersede their current machine.

The screened material varies and can be hard to separate in a quality level, therefore, a high-end machine was the only option. The Pronar MPB 20.55gh has been built to suit New Zealand’s conditions.

It features a 5.5-metre-long x 2-metre diameter drum, which allows for excellent throughput, and with a transport length of 11.6 metres and width of 3.1 metres, it can be easily moved around different sites.

Inclusions on the MPB 20.55gh are a Deutz Tier 4 engine for increased fuel efficiency, tele-radio remote control system, clean-fix reversible fan fitted to the engine cooling system, and central greasing system.

"Adding a new machine decreases the majority of running costs across the board," says Ryan Odering, Intelligro’s operations manager. "We expect greater fuel savings, greater output numbers, and a huge reduction in servicing, repair, and maintenance costs.

"We looked at several different machines and how they operated, and through our research, we found that Pronar have the best screening methodology to handle the figures we’re looking to achieve.

We have other machines in our fleet, including single deck, double deck, and trommel screens, so we have experience and an excellent understanding of how best to separate each material we deal with in the most efficient way possible."

The decision to purchase the mobile trommel was reassured by the ease of communication with Lincom Group’s local team, the machine availability, and mechanical support.
To ensure the machine is performing on its peak efficiency every day, after the delivery and commission, Lincom Group’s technicians provided hands-on training on the operation, maintenance, and safety features.

The machine has been working on different materials, each time surpassing expectations, Ryan says, and the production team at Intelligro are pleased and enthusiastic to have this machine in their fleet.

"We’re growing, and the need for high-quality reliable machines is growing with us. Our experience with Lincom Group has been positive, and we’ll be looking at purchasing other machines," says Ryan.

Intelligro manufactures and sells a wide variety of horticultural supplies to commercial and residential customers. The family-owned and operated business has a strong focus on the nursery sector and is one of the leading landscape and gardening suppliers on the South Island of New Zealand.
