Concrete Washout System
Recover Profitable Material
This concrete washout system is designed to recover leftover sand and gravel inside the drum of your ready-mix trucks.
At the end of a shift, your driver moves their truck under a high pressure nozzle, which flushes extra material from the drum to a trough. The trough leads the mix to a fine material washer.
Cement paste, fiber mesh, silts and water are washed out the backside of the screw as the sand and gravel are augered up and dewatered. Some customers have added a small screen to the end of the screw’s discharge point to separate the sand from the gravel.
This recovered material can go back into the concrete plant or is put to other use. Once the cement settles or separates, the water can be reused as well.
