Project Details

Designed and manufactured by George Robson of Sheffield, the Archimedes-type screw conveyor mechanism feeds sugar beet slurry from wet pumps to press stations at British Sugarʼs Wissington plant, near Kingʼs Lynn.

The Archco 423D™ and Archco 523D™ linings used are based on glass flake vinyl ester. They were applied by Broadblast of Sheffield who first shotblasted the surfaces to ensure a good mechanical key for the linings.
