Screening bucket, it is indeed a screening tool. That’s true, but it’s more than just a simple screening tool. In fact, Yichen screening bucket is a multi-functional bucket integrating screening, crushing, stirring and aeration. This introduction may make many people feel confused, what does this have to do with the treatment of polluted soil? Let me use a concrete example to illustrate how it works.

First of all, we need to understand the working principle of Yichen screening bucket. The excavator driver controls the roller of the bucket by operating the foot valve in the cab. The roller rotates in both forward and reverse directions to mix and stir the materials in the screening bucket. The material falls under its own weight. At the same time, blades are welded to the rollers, and these blades break up the material during rotation.

After understanding these, we can quickly understand how the screening bucket works in the treatment of polluted soil. The bucket will first pretreat the contaminated soil to make it into a pile shape; then add a certain proportion of curing agent or repair agent, which is determined according to the nature of the contaminated soil; then use the screening bucket for reprocessing , that is, the above-mentioned crushing, stirring, mixing, and aeration; after completing this series of operations, the contaminated soil is basically treated and can be landfilled or reused.

There are many types of contaminated soil that can be treated by the screening bucket, including: soil containing harmful substances, contaminated soil left over from industrial sites (chemical, pesticide, heavy metal pollution), pollution caused by tailings slag produced during mining or smelting, and comparison of moisture content High sludge and polluted waste soil mixed with construction waste.
