Terex Washing Systems (TWS) launched a completely new machine at Hillhead 2022 while debuting an enhanced AggreSand 206.

The new machine, TWS’s FM Pentium, is capable of washing one grade of sand and one aggregate on a single chassis, the company says. The FM Pentium is a static sand and aggregate-washing unit, combining a collection tank, centrifugal slurry pump, hydrocyclones and dewatering screen.

With a feed rate of up to 150 tph of pre-screened material, TWS says the FM Pentium can produce up to 120 tph of washed sand.

The improved AggreSand 206, meanwhile, emerged a decade after the initial research and development of the AggreSand family. The first AggreSand – the 165 – launched in 2013 with the 206 model following.

According to TWS, new features include an increased feed hopper size option to allow for greater feed capacity, a redesigned cyclone underflow box and a dewatering screen to provide sharper cuts in blending and enhanced end product. The company says the new chassis design enables the AggreSand to be more easily integrated with other TWS products.

In addition, TWS says access points were improved to simplify maintenance. A high-grip walkway allows for access to critical components.
