Hat-trick of announcements for MWS
McCloskey Washing Systems to unveil trio of new products at Conexpo-Con/Agg 2017
WASHING equipment specialists McCloskey Washing Systems (MWS), a division of McCloskey International, will be making a hat-trick of announcements at Conexpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas, from 7–11 March 2017.
McCloskey Washing Systems, who launched their new business division in November 2016, manufacture a full range of mobile, modular and static material and mineral washing equipment for use across multiple applications.
Sean Loughran, director of McCloskey Washing Systems, commented: ‘We have developed an impressive product range for 2017 and are excited about unveiling a number of these products at one of the world’s most prominent shows for our industry.’
SandStorm modular wash plants
Machines in the SandStorm modular wash plant range incorporate feeding, screening, aggregate washing, sand washing, and product stockpiling on a single compact modular chassis.
According to MWS, there is unprecedented access all around the machines for ease of operation and safe maintenance, coupled with unrivalled quality in every aspect of their design and build.
The SandStorm range (516, 620 and 824 models) can process feeds rates up to 550 tonnes/h, with production of up to four grades of aggregate and two grades of sand.
A recent addition to the SandStorm family is the new S-Line range, where all the benefits of the modular plant are combined with McCloskey’s tried and tested range of sand screws, providing a highly productive yet cost-effective option for the North American sand washing market.
AggStorm modular wash plants
The new AggStorm range from MWS is designed to operate as a stand-alone unit or to easily integrate with the SandStorm range of wash plants. The AggStorm is especially suitable for managing various types of clay-bound material where more aggressive scrubbing/washing is required than simple screening alone.
AggStorm units are equally at home in natural sand and gravel applications as they are in the construction and demolition waste recycling market, thanks to their impressive wear characteristics and ability to scrub aggregates aggressively and remove, through floatation, all clays and silts, along with any light debris such as wood and plastics.
Water treatment and management plants
‘With sand and aggregate producers across North America and beyond moving away from traditional methods of managing silt and recovering water through tailings ponds/lagoons, there is a growing demand for highly productive, safe and cost-effective alternatives to this common problem,’ said Sean Loughran.
‘We are delighted to announce the launch of our full range of MWS modular water treatment and management plants, including high-rate thickeners, deep-cone thickeners, automatic flocculent dosing stations and a complete line of recessed plate filter presses.
‘Our modular approach to the development of this range allows operators to start small and build up to a full ‘closed-loop’ system as budgets dictate.
‘Offering a choice of thickener to recover up to 80% of process water, full filter-press systems can be incorporated at a later stage to produce easily manageable dry silt cakes, removing the need for any form of pond or lagoon and resulting in a safer and much more cost-effective operation, with the added advantage of achieving up to 95% water recovery.’
