Weir Minerals is proud to announce the Weir Minerals Sand Wash Plant, a complete sand wash solution drawing on Weir Minerals’ long experience in the sand and aggregate industry. The Linatex® lined plant produces more saleable product than conventional sand screw plants, with fewer moving parts and an optimised process that produces a drier, higher-quality product with less fines.
The solution has already proven effective at sites like Coimbatore Minerals in Tamil Nadu, India, where a custom-built Weir Minerals Sand Wash Plant reduced their total cost of ownership by 51%, while offering a 23% reduction in fines that helped their product consistently meet the industry’s high standards for a saleable product.
“We know the most important thing for quarry operators in washing is recovering as much sand as possible to maximise their sales, which is why we’ve designed an integrated solution for washing their product, with a hydrocyclone which can deliver greater recovery than sand screws. In addition, every component has been selected by our expert engineers for its long-service life, interoperability and ease of maintenance.” says Bruce Cooke, Global Product Manager – Sand Wash Plants.
The compact solution features a range of Weir Minerals equipment designed for high efficiency in sand and aggregate applications, including Warman® WGR pumps, Cavex® hydrocyclones, Enduron® dewatering screens, Linatex® hoses and Isogate® knife gate valves.
The Warman® WGR is the pump of choice in the sand extraction industry, combining top of the line hydraulic design with an adjustable impeller, long bearing life and a simplified wet end, making replacement predictable and cost effective.
Cavex® hydrocyclones provide exceptional classification efficiency thanks to their unique 360° laminar spiral, delivering more saleable product than a sand screw solution would.
“For the new sand wash plant, we focused on making it quick and easy for quarry operators to get up and running. Its straightforward design means it can be assembled in just two days while its compact skids make it easy to drag into any operation. Efficient, reliable and easily integrated into flowsheets, we think the plant is a game changer for quarry owners,” says Surendra Menon, President, Weir Minerals India.
Weir Minerals sand wash plants are now available for customers in all regions.
