Australia to host official launch of washing plant

Terex Washing Systems (TWS) is inviting the local quarrying industry to attend the official launch of the Terex Aggresand 165 3-1 wash plant in Dubbo, central west New South Wales.

The company is working closely with its Australian distributor Mineral Washing Systems (MWS) to organise two open days – one on Wednesday 30 July and the other on Thursday 31 July – to showcase the newly-installed plant.

“MWS has grown from strength to strength, clearly demonstrating an acute understanding of the washing demands in Australia,” TWS sales manager Fergal McPhillips said. “They have greatly increased market share and have expanded their business line for greater future growth within all washing segments such as speciality/recipe sands, concrete and building sands and in wash recycling.

“The launch of the Aggresand 165 in September 2013 helped pave the way for helping to establish TWS as a market leader, and less than one year later, we are delighted to be in the position to host our first Australian open day.”

Three aggregates, one sand
The Aggresand 165 3-1 is a three-deck plant that can process virgin sand and gravel on a modular chassis, producing three aggregates and one sand. According to TWS, it incorporates an exclusive “pre-wash” system that enables highly clayed sand to be brought into specification in just one pass.

The typical Aggresand 165 plant features an electric-driven and spring-mounted two- or three-deck dewatering screen option, fixed at an 18-degree working angle, a centre chassis with sump and split tanks and rubber-lined slurry pumps situated upon roll-out maintenance platforms, a sand plant with a high energy 3.7m x 1.5m dewatering screen which can dewater up to 120 tonnes per hour of sand, and radial conveyors with a 660mm x 9m wide belt with a 4.9m discharge height.

To date, TWS has installed Aggresand 165 wash plants in Ireland, the UK, Austria, parts of Eastern Europe, the US and Canada, in addition to Australia. According to TWS, customers have found it easier to secure planning and finance for these modular plants as opposed to traditional static set-ups. This is due to the modular design of the plant, which ensures ease of installation and ability to move to another site if required.
