McLanahan Corp. will showcase the newest size range for its UltraWASH modular wash plant at ConExpo-Con/Agg, marking the first time the UltraWASH 6505 will be displayed at a trade show.

According to McLanahan, it has carefully thought of details and features that will make maintenance and efficiency easier – including the Eze-Riser, which allows operators to cut pump maintenance time in half. The fines forward slide and aggregate discharge hood, meanwhile, are included to increase efficiency.

Eze-Riser

The Eze-Riser works together with the pump service trolley to enable safe and efficient pump maintenance, such as changing the impellers or replacing the casing liners. A foot pedal lifts the discharge pipe from the pump and utilizes a locking mechanism to then hold the pipe aloft, offering the clearance needed for the pump to roll out on the trolley service platform unrestricted.

Sufficient flexibility is provided by the hydrocyclone entry hose bend above to accommodate these few millimeters of pipe travel, making it unnecessary to disturb pipework other than where it connects directly to the pump at its suction and discharge flanges.

Additionally, the manually adjustable fines forward slide can divert a portion of raw fines into the coarse sand processing stream. According to McLanahan, this balances the downstream process to optimize plant capacity.

Alternatively, by substituting the last row of fine material screen panels with coarse material screen panels, the fines forward slide will allow alterations of the proportions of fine and coarse decking areas above while still preventing the loss of coarse material into the fines processing stream.

Two people – one on each side of the sizing screen – are all that is required to reposition the fines forward slide, eliminating the use of cranes or other lifting equipment.

Aggregate discharge/remixing hood

Washed aggregate is discharged from the end of the sizing screen in up to three discrete size fractions for separate stockpiling.

Still, any two adjacent – or all three – aggregate product sizes may be recombined (either for consolidated stockpiling or onward processing as required) by one person’s manual operation of the aggregate discharge/remixing hood’s rubber-lined diversion traps.

Sump conversion

The UltraWASH also offers a sump conversion kit. With the kit, producers can quickly and safely change between a one- or-two-pump setup. The sand process can also be altered to process a single wash, a double wash or a two product sand.
