CDE unveiled the Combo all-in-one wet processing plant at Bauma, bringing a system to the market that encompasses feeding, sizing, sand washing, stockpiling and integrated water management

“The Combo is no ordinary machine, but rather a technological response to the challenges faced by materials producers,” says Sean Kerr, COO at CDE. “It has been designed with a focus on transferring greater reliability and efficiency benefits to customers.”

According to CDE, the Combo offers a turnkey solution that delivers control of in-spec washed products from a range of feed materials. The plant can be used in the construction, C&D waste recycling, industrial sands, mining and environmental sectors.

Additionally, the Combo offers rapid onsite setup, reduced startup costs, the ability to process both natural sand and crushed rock, lower power consumption, a smaller footprint and accessibility for maintenance, the company adds.

The Combo was designed for single-operator use and ease of access for routine maintenance with its swivel access to the pump, leading to maximum production and prolonged life, the company says. Photo courtesy of CDE

Pre-tested and pre-wired before dispatch, a Combo arrives on site in a single unit ready to plug and play, either as a standalone plant or as part of a larger turnkey solution. Also, because the Combo sits on its own chassis, it requires minimal civils and pipework so operators can relocate their plant across sites or to remote locations, CDE says.

“The Combo requires a small supply of fresh water compared with traditional systems, which typically consume 10 to 15 times more water, allowing its deployment in quarries and urban areas not previously known for sand production,” says Kevin Vallelly, director of engineering at CDE. “In addition, sand can be produced closer to where concrete is required, resulting in significant cost savings in the transport of aggregates.”
