Pit and quarry operators can look forward to more innovative ways to wash sand, gravel, aggregates, and C&D waste thanks to two new solutions from Terex Washing Systems (TWS) to be officially launched and showcased at Hillhead 2014, in Buxton, Derbyshire from the 24th to the 26th of June.
Hillhead will provide the stage to showcase the Terex® Aggresand™ Range to include the 165 (up to 250tph) and the latest addition, the new larger Terex® Aggresand™ 206 (up to 400tph), as well as the Terex® Aggrescrub™ 150 (up to 150tph) plant. These new innovative modular wash plants will help to revolutionize the washing market on a global level.
3 Aggregates, 2 Sands, 1 Machine
The Aggresand™ 206 wash plant is the larger model of the recently launched Aggresand ™ 165 (up to 250tph) model and has greater capacity, up to 400tph, and comprises a 20×6 screen with two and three deck options. The Aggresand ™ 206 plant brings modern modular design features, increases productivity (up to 400tph), and shares all the unique features of the Aggresand™ 165 wash plant. Customers will 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 HMI control system, which have been delivering efficient, productive performance for current owners. In addition, the level of serviceability within the Aggresand™ wash plant range is unrivalled within the industry with innovative features such as rolling chutes and rolling centrifugal pumps. TWS has also included sensors throughout the machine providing the operator with information on water pressure, cyclone feed pressure, and electrical power consumption, making the operation and management of the machine highly efficient.
Director of TWS, Sean Loughran, commented, "The market has really embraced the Aggresand™ wash plant concept with exceptional demand at the moment around the world. To date, TWS has installed multiple Aggresand™ 165 wash plants in Ireland, UK, parts of Eastern Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and Austria. Customers are also finding it easier to secure planning and finance for these modular plants as opposed to traditional static set ups. 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."
Quarry owner, Humphrey Dowling, proud owner of the first ever Aggresand™ wash plant commented, "The throughput currently being achieved on the plant is excellent and the quality of the aggregates and sands being produced is very impressive. The high performance two deck vibrating grid allows us to feed material directly from the face of the quarry, at 200mm, large material is scalped off while the minus 50mm material goes straight into the wash plant. This eliminates the need for expensive pre-screening of the feed material."
New High Attrition Scrubbing
The second new innovative product to be unveiled at Hillhead 2014 is the new Aggrescrub™ 150 (up to 150tph) plant, particularly suited to the C&D recycling market. Key benefits for customers include the improved wear characteristics, reduced costs, and the ability to effectively scrub aggregates and float out clays/silts/lights (wood/plastics) on one chassis. In addition, there are also a number of paddle options available depending on customers’ needs, including the traditional hard wearing HARDOX blades in 15 and 30mm variances as well as a new high manganese steel option.
Terex Materials Processing (Powerscreen® and Terex® Finlay) has a long history in the manufacture of logwashers and the experience gained in the field has resulted in what is truly a 21st century aggregate scrubbing plant. It also shares many of the innovative features of the Aggresand™ range including modular design, quick and easy set-up, pre-plumed pipework, pre-wired electrics, a HMI control panel and a web frame chassis design.
The hull acts as a scrubber and also as a water bath. The Terex® Aggrescrub™ 150 model is fitted with a newly orientated DW062 (6’x2′) trash dewatering screen which dewaters any floated off trash including plastics and organics. The scrubbed aggregate is rinsed and sized on a DW125-2D (12’x5′) two deck screen, to produce three clean aggregates for stock piling. Access and serviceability on the Aggrescrub™ plant is second to none with full galvanized walkway access around the entire plant.
Another unique benefit to customers is the ability of the Terex® Aggresand™ wash plant and Terex® Aggrescrub™ 150 plant to combine to provide the perfect solution for customers dealing with recycling applications as well as pit owners with high agglomerations of clay. The innovative, intelligent and user-friendly control system on both plants allows full integration between the two systems through the connection of a single plug-and-play cable. Through this pioneering control system, seamless communication allows the plants to work as a single entity with all interlocks including start-up and shutdown sequences automatically synchronizing, which further minimizes the amount of on-site installation & commissioning required. Indeed the Aggresand and Aggrescrub combination is set to become the benchmark in modular wash recycling plants for years to come.
Hillhead will provide the first opportunity for customers to see firsthand these innovative washing solutions. A team of skilled engineers, applications and sales technicians will be there to provide expert advice and guidance with your specific requirements.
