CDE introduced its Combo X900 all-in-one wet processing system at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020.

The Combo X900, the latest in the company’s range of wet processing and water management offerings, features an increased capacity of 500 tph and is the largest in the series to date. The Combo X900 has been engineered specifically for materials processors in North America and Latin America, the company says.

“With our new Combo X900, we’ve doubled its capacity and created a next-gen solution for materials processors across North America and Latin America,” says Kevin Vallelly, director of engineering at CDE. “The Combo X900 can process 500 tons per hour of feed material, including natural sand and crushed rock, containing unwanted clay, silt and other organic contaminants to extract quality in-spec washed and graded sand products that are market-ready straight from the belts.”

In addition, the Combo X900’s control cabin is repositioned to sit on top of the water tank, a design decision that was made specifically with the North American and Latin American markets in mind, the company says.

“By positioning the control cabin on top of the water tank, we’re able to better protect the operational heart of the plant and offer a solution that can be adopted throughout both North America and Latin America, where high and low temperature extremes are recorded,” Vallelly says.

The Combo X900 also features a reduced overall footprint as the standalone water tank is integrated into the design of the AquaCycle thickener tank, resulting in a peripheral wall for water storage. This, in turn, minimizes the requirements for site engineering due to its reduced footprint, which is, on average, 30 percent smaller than other traditional wash plant setups, the company says.

“Our best-in-class water management and on-board water recycling minimizes costly water consumption and ensures up to 90 percent of process water is recycled for immediate recirculation through the closed circuit system” Vallelly says. “The Combo X900 enables materials processors to wash more than 500 tons per hour with only 800 gallons per minute.”

Additional features of the Combo X900 include its single chassis design, which incorporates washing, dewatering, water recycling and stockpiling on one pre-assembled unit. The single chassis design allows the Combo X900 to be portable and rapidly deployed, CDE says, to remote locations and compact quarries in urban areas.

A plug-and-play system, the Combo X900 arrives on site ready to process material within just five days as a standalone plant or as part of a larger turnkey solution, according to CDE.
