Terex Washing Systems (TWS) is celebrating the first birthday of the Terex® AggreSand™ 165 washplant following the official launch in Ireland in September 2013. A lot has been achieved in the last year, with the successful installation of the AggreSand™ 165 washplant in 5 continents over 10 countries, processing up to 10 million tonnes.
Garry Stewart, Application Team Lead, TWS, commented, “The market has really embraced the AggreSand™ washplant concept with exceptional demand at the moment. To date, TWS has installed multiple AggreSand™ 165 washplants around the globe. We are constantly looking at innovative ways to further enhance and develop our existing products so we can continue to meet the individual needs of our customers.”
TWS hosted a number of events in 2013 to officially launch the AggreSand™ 165 in both Ireland and USA. The AggreSand™ 165 was also displayed as part of a double bill at the recent Hillhead 2014 show, UK. The most recent event to showcase the AggreSand™ 165 was at the first of several planned open days in 2014 in the Australia market. The event was hosted by Dubbo Sands, NSW, Australia, on 30th – 31st July 2014 where the plant was recently installed. Owners Mardi and Graham Colbran, commented “The professionalism and dedication from TWS and Mineral Washing Systems (one of TWS Australian distributors), starting with purchasing right through to commissioning has been outstanding; we feel that there is nothing else currently on the market, that even comes close. We chose the AggreSand™ 165 washplant for ease of setup, having the ability to minimize disruption to our site. Our AggreSand™ 165 washplant incorporates the Pre Wash system which enables us to bring our sand into spec in just one pass, whilst producing 3 aggregates, giving us a very cost effective operation. The quality of design and construction of this plant is easily seen, a lot of thought has gone into access for servicing to pumps, screens, and the controls, including remote operation from the loader, all of which, are user friendly, this plant demonstrates what washing sand should be, “Easy”. We are positive ours will be the first of many hitting Australian shores.”
The introduction of the AggreSand ™ 165 concept was in response to both changes in the marketplace and customer demands, which consists of the AggreSand ™ 165 washplant (up to 250tph) model and the larger capacity, AggreSand™ 206 washplant, (up to 400tph). Central to the development of the AggreSand ™ concept was modular design, serviceability and functionality, making it quick and easy to set-up and easy to maintain. Customers also benefit from the unique design which includes full containerization of the machine for ease of transportation, rapid set-up time, pre-wired & pre-plumbed plug & play componentry, isolated spray bars and a simple automated control system, all of which have been delivering efficient, productive performance for current owners.
The ongoing TWS commitment to meeting customers’ needs saw the introduction of another new pioneering product in 2014, the impressive AggreScrub™ 150, designed to operate both as a stand-alone unit as well as having the ability to seamlessly integrate with the AggreSand™. The AggreScrub™ 150 is designed to deal with stubborn clay bound material which cannot be removed by rinsing or screening alone. The AggreScrub™ product is shortlisted as a finalist in the “World Demolition Awards 2014”, in the “Innovation – Series Product” category and winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 7th November. The Terex® Aggwash™ plant was the winner of this particular category in 2010.
Since TWS was established in July 2012, the company has gone from strength to strength and is now firmly established as one of the leading material and mineral washing solution providers in the global marketplace. The introduction of three new products over the last year demonstrates the ongoing TWS commitment to meeting customers’ needs through providing pioneering ways to wash sand, gravel, aggregates, wood and C&D waste. As a result of this growth and in response to market demands, TWS has expanded the team globally to provide a full and dedicated line of support for the TWS distributor network and customers.
Product Line Director for TWS, Sean Loughran commented: “We are delighted to continually welcome new talented and skilled team members to the TWS team. The experience they bring will ensure TWS offers the same quality support and services locally as well as in our other centers of excellence in USA and India. TWS is committed to providing first class service, expertise and knowledge in the field of mineral and material washing from initial concept of plant ideas through to after sales service and support.”
TWS looks forward to more successful months and years ahead and will continue to focus on introducing further innovative and new solutions for quarry, aggregate, mining and C&D recycling industries, continually meeting customers’ needs and specific washing demands.
