CDE plans to introduce its new Combo all-in-one wet processing plant at Bauma 2019.

According to the company, the plant is a technological response to the challenges faced by producers and is a turnkey solution that delivers in-spec washed products from a range of feed materials. The Combo can be used in the construction, construction and demolition, industrial sands, mining, and environmental sectors.

“Our new Combo is the world’s first wet processing system with integrated water treatment,” says Kevin Vallelly, director of engineering at CDE. “For the customer, its bespoke, pre-determined design reduces the overall footprint on site compared to traditional processes. Pre-wired and pre-tested before dispatch, the plant is built for rapid assembly and setup and can start processing material within days of arriving at the site.”

According to the company, the Combo focuses on transferring greater reliability and efficiency benefits to customers. All essential processes are housed onto one chassis, meaning the Combo system operates as one interconnected and pre-assembled unit with an integrated control panel with a single point of operation.

Additionally, the Combo is designed as an ultra-compact washing solution that the company says requires minimal civils and pipework. Operators can also relocate the plant across sites or to remote locations.

“Throughout the design process, our engineers focused on access for maintenance and on optimizing the lifespan of the plant,” Vallelly says. “The Combo provides safe and superior access to all areas, and in line with our ‘do it safe’ ethos, complies with all relevant ISO standards.”

The Combo has a customer-focused design and accessibility features for maintenance, CDE adds. A swivel access to the pump is designed for single-operator use and ease-of-access for routine maintenance. Additionally, lower power consumption provides economic benefits.

According to the company, the Combo washing system features components in high-wear areas to minimize mechanical fatigue on the plant. The Infinity screen, used on the primary screens of the plant, provides better durability and prolonged operational life. To maximize output, the company says it uses transfer point technology to eliminate high operational wear zones.
