Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020: CDE to launch latest Combo innovations
Cutting-edge Combo wet processing plant featuring customized enhancements to suit American market
CDE say they are set to revolutionize the wet processing industry yet again with the launch of the latest in their range of Combo all-in-one wet processing solutions.
The patented Combo – the world’s first all-in-one wet processing plant – was first unveiled in Europe at the bauma show in April 2019. It was the first fully integrated, modular, patented turnkey materials wet-processing and water-management solution for the production of premium manufactured sands.
The latest model in the Combo range will have a number of soon-to-be-revealed enhanced features that have been specifically designed to allow operators in the Americas to capitalize on new opportunities.
David Kinloch, regional manager for CDE UK & Ireland, said: ‘At CDE, we are proud to deliver optimized operations for maximum yields and fast returns for our clients. Our high-performance solutions maximize resources and add huge commercial value to our customers’ enterprises, with the innovative Combo having led the way in a new era of wet processing.
‘We are looking forward to launching the latest Combo model at Conexpo-Con/Agg, directly to the very market that inspired it. This next-generation plant will deliver significant commercial benefits while minimizing operational costs.’
Importantly, the Combo is portable and incorporates all five essential processes – feeding, sizing, sand washing, stockpiling and complete integrated water management – on one compact and modular chassis. With a 30% reduced footprint compared with traditional set-ups, it requires less civils expenditure and involves fewer planning requirements.
Kevin Vallelly, director of engineering at CDE, said: ‘The Combo is the first all-in-one materials processing system that accepts both natural sand and crushed rock feeds, giving our customers complete flexibility in the choice of the material they want to process, depending on available reserves.
‘Having launched the Combo in 2019, we have further enhanced our game-changing technology to customize it to the American market. Delivering profitable material straight from the belt and minimizing operational costs, the Combo on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG is the next phase in showcasing how CDE sand washing works.’
