Lannon Stone Chooses Telsmith

Lannon 1Lannon Stone Products Inc. has selected Telsmith screens to be installed in a retrofit application as part of their facility wide processing equipment upgrade.

A 6- x 20-ft. Vibro-King TL was installed to replace an aging Hewitt-Robins screen, while two 8- x 20-ft. Vibro-King TL screens were selected in place of the existing models.

Lannon Stone elected to use Telsmith screening solutions for this key installation due to the ability to customize the screens based on application, including specialty liners to address wear issues.

With sizes ranging from 18- x 6-ft. to 8-x 24-ft., Telsmith can meet screening needs from 24 hour mining operations, to heavy-duty aggregate processing and sizing, to recycling of asphalt and concrete products, the company said.

Telsmith’s Vibro-King TL screen design matches the vibrating screen and media as never before, creating outstanding performance and longevity. From heavy-duty scalping of coarse stone to fine sizing of finished products, wet or dry processing, the Vibro-King TL is built to deliver low cost performance as never before.

“We are pleased that Lannon Stone has entrusted Telsmith to deliver a solution that provides key operational improvements, while utilizing most of the existing plant structures,” aid Matthew Haven, president of Telsmith Inc. “When completed properly, retrofitting of equipment provides customers with the performance of a new plant at a fraction of the cost.”

“The age and mechanical condition of our dry-screen fleet was becoming a significant performance problem for our Sussex Quarry. We were in the habit of repairing the screens whenever they broke, but when we finally analyzed our downtime, we knew we were fighting a losing battle,” said Hans Dawson, third generation owner/operator of Lannon Stone Products Inc. “We were very impressed with Telsmith’s build quality, custom fit to our structures, and short lead time to delivery. Their sales team measured our existing structures and the screens dropped right in place during install. The increased uptime on the screens has given us both higher production and more time to focus on repairs elsewhere in the plant. It feels like the plant is now working for us instead of the other way around.”

“Telsmith looks forward to the future with Lannon Stone as we prepare to provide equipment, including key T-Series installs at another of their southeast Wisconsin locations this fall,” said Haven.”
