Low water solution for manufactured sand

Superior Industries has developed the Alliance low water washer for use on manufactured sand.

With the growing use of manufactured sand, many operators are limited to either air separators or washing with cyclones or sand screws.

The low water washer is more economical than alternative washing or separating methods. The unit accepts a dry feed directly from the crushing circuit and processes the material into a higher value manufactured sand, utilising 80 per cent less water than a typical washing operation and with outputs of up to 300 tonnes per hour.

The agitator section is positioned at the front end of the screen where water is added to the dry feed and mixed, producing a thick slurry. This slurry is then dumped onto a dewatering screen with a series of spray bars to help clean and wash out the fines. The end result is a saleable manufactured sand with just eight per cent moisture content.

The plant offers lower operating costs and a high value, ready to use product. Custom-designed models can produce higher rates, if required.
