Patent-pending technology gives McLanahan a market boost

Engineered with McLanahan equipment to help producers meet their process requirements, the UltraWASH provides the reliability, simplicity and efficiency that producers need from a modular plant.

{{quote-A:R-W:150-Q:“McLanahan’s latest range of UltraWASH modular wash plants are at the forefront of the industry”}}McLanahan’s new, innovative line provides operators with features that make maintenance and efficiency easier, including three unique features:

  • The patent-pending Eze-Riser, which allows the operator to cut pump maintenance time in half.
  • The Fines Forward Slide, which is also patent pending, is designed for twin sand plants.
  • The aggregate discharge hood, which is included to improve efficiency.

While there are many modular plant solutions available in the market, McLanahan is one of the few companies offering both customised and modular washing solutions. This, combined with years of processing design knowledge, provides unmatched industry expertise in providing the correct solutions for applications.


Maximising uptime is vital to any operation, so the UltraWASH has been designed with ease of maintenance in mind. The Eze-Riser works together with the pump service trolley to enable safe, efficient pump maintenance, such as changing the impellers or replacing the casing liners.

A foot pedal lifts the discharge pipe from the pump and utilises a locking mechanism to then hold the pipe aloft, offering the clearance needed for the pump to roll out on the trolley service platform unrestricted.

Fines Forward Slide

The manually adjustable Fines Forward Slide can divert a portion of raw fines into the coarse sand processing stream. This balances the downstream process to optimise plant capacity.

Alternatively, by substituting the last row of fine material screen panels with coarse material screen panels, the Fines Forward Slide will allow alterations of the proportions of fine and coarse decking areas above, while still preventing the loss of coarse material into the fines processing stream.

Two men (one each side of the sizing screen) are all that is required to simply reposition the Fines Forward Slide, eliminating the use of cranes or other lifting equipment.

Aggregate discharge/remixing hood

Washed aggregate is discharged from the end of the sizing screen in up to three discreet size fractions for separate stockpiling.

However, any two adjacent – or all three – aggregate product sizes may be recombined (either for consolidated stockpiling or onward processing as required) simply by one man’s manual operation of the aggregate discharge/remixing hood’s rubber-lined diversion traps.

Why a modular plant?

Along with these easy maintenance features, McLanahan’s modular line arrives in individualised containers and is quick to set up and easy to move around for different configurations.

{{quote-A:R-W:150-Q:“McLanahan’s UltraWASH range sets a standard in its ability to eliminate downtime”}}It is also easy to transport to other sites when the life of the deposit is shorter. Building the plant simply requires placing each factory-assembled, pre-wired module on a suitably prepared base. Typically, it only takes a few days to get the whole plant up and running.

The system requires a single water feed point and comes pre-wired and pre-plumbed to make installation simpler.

McLanahan’s Eze-Riser, Fines Forward Slide and the aggregate discharge/remixing hood provide producers with a simplified maintenance operation and the ability to quickly change operations.

The UltraWASH range sets a standard in its ability to eliminate downtime, which leaves operators with more running time and a more profitable operation.

In Australia, the UltraWASH plant range is available through the newly-appointed national distributor Lincom Group.
