Newcastle Sand is upgrading its wash plant production output due to significant increases in demand for high quality washed sand, which it is supplying to the Hunter and Sydney Regions for construction purposes.
The quarry is looking to sell its existing sand washing plant to an interested buyer.
“The existing plant which we are going to dispose of has not missed a beat in the last 18 months. The plant is producing our medium to fine sand resource (150um – 600um) at the rate of 80 tonnes per hour,” said Murray Towndrow, director of Newcastle Sand.
“The raw resource is typically recording eight to 10 per cent silt content (AS 1141.33) and post washing is consistently achieving two to 2.5 per cent,” he added.
The plant comprises a MQ XL175 fine material washer powered by a 18.5KW drive. A 12 foot by five foot dewatering screen and a 300um deck complement the plant. All of these are mounted on a fully galvanised steel frame with control panel.
“Inspections are welcome at our Williamtown quarry in New South Wales. Alternatively, you can visit Newcastle Sand on YouTube to view the plant in action,” Towndrow said.
