Terex to premiere two wash plants at Hillhead 2014
TWS will unveil the Aggresand 206 and Aggrescrub 150 at Hillhead 2014
Terex Washing Systems (TWS) will unveil its two latest Aggresand and Aggrescrub models at Hillhead 2014.
The trade show, which focuses on the sectors of quarrying, construction, and recycling, will be held in the UK town of Buxton from 24-26 June. Terex will use the event as a platform to showcase a range of products, including its latest Aggresand 206 and Aggrescrub 150 plants.
“The market has really embraced the Aggresand wash plant concept with exceptional demand at the moment around the world,” said Sean Loughran, director of TWS.
“To date, TWS has installed multiple Aggresand 165 wash plants in Ireland, the UK, parts of eastern Europe, the 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 setups. 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,” he added.
The Aggresand 206 wash plant can process 400 tonnes of material per hour. The modular unit boasts full containerisation for ease of transportation, rapid setup times, pre-wired and pre-plumbed plug-and-play components, isolated spray bars, and an HMI control system. TWS has also installed sensors throughout the machine to provide operators with real-time data about water pressure, cyclone feed pressure, and electrical power consumption.
“The throughput currently being achieved on the plant is excellent, and the quality of the aggregates and sands being produced is very impressive,” commented Humphry Dowling, the quarry owner who purchased the first ever Aggresand wash plant.
“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,” he explained.
The Aggrescrub 150, meanwhile, can process 150 tonnes of material per hour, and is particularly suited to the construction and demolition recycling markets. The model offers improved wear characteristics, reduced costs, and the ability to effectively scrub aggregates and float out clays, silts, lights, woods, and plastics on one chassis.
In combination, TWS claims that the latest units represent the ideal package for customers dealing with recycling applications or high agglomerations of clay. The plants’ control system allows for full integration between the two systems, minimising the amount of onsite installation and commissioning required.
