New Washing Equipment Within Crusher Circuit at Hillhead 2018

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, plans to show its new Alliance® Low Water Washer in stand CE16 at Hillhead 2018. A first of its kind for aggregate producers, the unique low water washer is capable of accepting a dry feed directly within a crushing circuit. These fines are then pressure washed and dewatered for production of sellable manufactured sands.

“Historically, all of the machinery used to wash crusher fines has been traditional sand screws,” said John Bennington, director of wet processing technology at Superior. “That typically means material producers are handling and hauling the material to a separate wash site, which adds cost quickly.”

During operation, an agitator section accepts the feed where it is mixed with water to produce 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 8% moisture content.

“The Alliance Low Water Washer is designed specifically for washing crusher fines and uses 80% less water than the traditional screw/screen combination,” Bennington says.

Superior manufactures models of its new Alliance Low Water Washer for rates up to 272 MTPH (300 STPH). Custom designed machines can produce higher rates if required.
