New CDE plant installation for recycled aggregates supplier
Aggregate Processing Solutions provide David Einig Contracting with bespoke washing system
A LAND restoration company has called in the expertise of Aggregate Processing Solutions (APS) to support its growing niche in the waste processing and recycling markets.
Following consultation with their client, APS – the specialist washing arm of the Finlay Group of companies and a licensed partner to CDE Global – have recently commissioned a new CDE inert wash plant for Thame-based David Einig Contracting.
Located at David Einig’s Witney recycling site, in Oxfordshire, the highly engineered system has been configured to a bespoke layout, bringing together standard modular relocatable units to create a tailor-made solution to meet the customer’s exact requirements for business expansion.
The plant features an AggMax 250 logwasher, a M2500 dry screen, an EvoWash 152 sand washing plant and a GEA CF 8000 centrifuge unit. Other elements include an A400 AquaCycle, a 100A AquaStore water tank and a 100 cubic metre-capacity buffer tank.
The purpose-built wash plant incorporates an efficient water-management system that has been designed to reuse a significant amount of water in closed circuit. It also provides minimal top-up to compensate for moisture leaving the system from the materials that are produced – sourced from an on-site borehole.
After the recovery of sands and aggregates, the centrifuge retains any suspended solids in the effluent overflow, cleans the water and recycles any material found in it.
The CDE plant is currently processing up to 130 tonnes/h; scalping off +80mm, while washing and recovering 80–40mm, 40–20mm, 20–10mm and 10–4mm products, as well as soft and sharp sands.
Any oversize material is fed into the recycling operator’s Tesab RK623CT tracked impact crusher to produce Type 1 sub-base. The washing plant is also working in conjunction with a new and specially adapted Terex Finlay 883+ screening unit (again supplied by APS).
David Einig, managing director of David Einig Contracting, said: ‘I’m very pleased with the new set-up. Material goes to the market as soon as it’s processed, so it’s really important that we have plant that we can trust.’
The bespoke wash plant solution represents the latest machinery supplied by Finlay Group to David Einig Contracting in the last 12 months. They also include a Terex Finlay 674 tracked screen, two Trackstack conveyors (80ft each) and the Terex Finlay 883+ machine.
John Dunne, managing director of APS, said: ‘It’s great to see our plant supporting the expansion of the business. As licensed partners to CDE, APS has input on the design, manufacture and delivery of all the components. This ensures that the water treatment works in unison with the washing plant, something you don’t often see with other systems. We’re a one-stop shop.’
