At Latomia Latouros Ltd, two parallel plant lines are used to process the initial excavated calcareous limestone. The raw material is unloaded in the Telsmith grizzly feeders and is then fed into 500 tonnes per hour Telsmith 3050 and 2250 jaw crushers. On being crushed by the Telsmith 3050 plant, the material goes through two 7ft x 20ft Telsmith double-deck screeners. The second plant line sees material fed via the grizzly feeder into the Telsmith 2250 jaw crusher and then screened by a 6ft x 20ft and a 6ft x 16ft double-deck Telsmith screeners. Around 90% of the quarry’s final 0-4mm product is passing 2mm.

Any +5mm oversize material remaining after the initial crushing and screening process on the two plant lines is conveyed to two up to 350 tonnes per hour capacity Magotteaux MAG’Impact 2400 VSI (vertical shaft impactors, one for each plant) and then looped round via a conveyor to the Telsmith screeners for processing into final grade product. Any undersized material is conveyed to two (for each plant) rod mills, each fitted with an Elkayam hydrocyclone, for washing out/removing the fines and processing into a saleable product.

In 2020, Latomia Latouros Ltd updated the excavation, loading and hauling fleet, to achieve better fuel efficiency and higher productivity.

“If you cut me, my blood is going to be yellow. I am Caterpillar’s biggest customer in Cyprus. We have used Cat machines for so many years as they are reliable. They have a strong dealer and aftersales presence here, which helps with maintenance and machine uptime, and Cat machines retain a good resale value after you’ve used them for seven to 10 years. This offers better value for money.”
