hydro-cleanHaver & Boecker (formerly W.S. Tyler) and Kemper Equipment demonstrated the Hydro-Clean washing system to potential customers at events in Slippery Rock and Annville, Pa.

Pit & Quarry was on hand for the Slippery Rock demo, which was hosted by Glacial Sand & Gravel in unseasonably cold temperatures that included wind chills in the 20s. In addition to the Haver & Boecker and Kemper Equipment personnel, 17 producers were in attendance at Slippery Rock and 23 at Annville.

The Hydro-Clean washing unit cleans deleterious material from aggregate and recycled materials while reducing water consumption by as much as 75 percent compared to traditional log washers, according to the company.

Unlike traditional washing systems that can require as many as three screens along with a log washer or screw, the producer only needs an additional wash screen for the Hydro-Clean’s discharged material. The washer comes in three model sizes that process 18 to 360 tons per hour, depending on the application: the HC350, HC1000 and HC2000.

“The Haver and Kemper partnership brings problem-solving technology to the customer,” says Greg Donecker, president of Kemper Equipment. “The Hydro-Clean has a lower operating cost compared to traditional “clay removal” washing equipment. This system, along with Kemper’s understanding of plant flows and local structural design and fabrication gives the customer the ability to turn a low-dollar product into a more valuable saleable product.”

Temperatures at the Slippery Rock demo were below the normal operating range of the machine, yet the unit was able to effectively clean the material.
