CDE to launch fully integrated mobile washing plant
THIS year CDE Global, the Northern Irish manufacturers of washing equipment for the quarrying, mining and recycling industries, are set to launch on to the global market what they claim will be a revolution in mobile washing equipment for quarrying and recycling applications – the M2500.
According to CDE, the M2500 has been developed in response to the absence on the market of a fully integrated feeding, screening and washing plant specifically designed for washing projects.
‘While other variations on mobile wet screening started life as dry screens which were then converted by the crude addition of some spray bars, the M2500 has been specifically designed as a mobile washing plant,’ explained CDE’s marketing manager, Peter Craven.
The M2500 incorporates CDE’s Prograde screening technology and Evowash sand washing plant in one unit, allowing it to produce up to three washed aggregates and two washed sand products.
This integration of the Evowash plant within the M2500 system is said to have major benefits for the customer, due to a substantially reduced plant footprint and advanced transfer point technology, which effectively eliminates spillage and enhances plant efficiency.
‘The Evowash sand plant is fed by gravity, which eliminates the requirement for additional conveyors, sumps and pumps,’ said design manager Terence Bratton. ‘This has the effect of not only reducing the plant footprint, but also ensures substantial cost savings for the customer.’
The M2500 is available in a variety of configurations and can accommodate the production of up to 140 tonnes/h of washed sand. The unit can be fed via an integrated feed hopper and belt feeder or can be fed directly from a separate mobile crushing or screening plant.
The standard M2500 machine comes equipped with a 9 cubic metre capacity feed hopper and static tipping grid. This feeds an integrated 14m long x 1,000mm wide belt conveyor, which in turn delivers material to the CDE Prograde P75 rinsing screen.
Screen options include two or three 5m x 1.5m screen decks and a choice of wire mesh, rubber or polyurethane screen media.
The integrated Evowash sand washing plant can produce up to 150 tonnes/h of washed sand with dual sand options also available.
The total production capacity of both washed aggregates and sand from the M2500 system in standard configuration is 200 tonnes/h.
