Superior Industries will showcase a newly configured portable wash plant at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020.

The portable Spirit wash plant will be available inside Central Hall (booth C31389) at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Capable of producing as many as five products, the Spirit carries a 6-ft. x 20-ft. Guardian horizontal screen, plus a sand production module and an ultra-fines recovery module.

Material is fed to a slurry box, which liquifies it to improve the screening and stratification processes.

The three-deck horizontal screen washes and sizes three products from a top, middle or bottom deck. Leftover sand is then processed through one of two Spirit wash modules. These modules consist of one or more Helix cyclones followed by a dewatering screen.

According to Superior, the first wash module uses a cyclone to size and separate material for a traditional sand product. A dewatering screen ensures it’s instantly saleable off the discharge chute, the company adds.

Also, depending on the deposit, an optional ultra-fines recovery module washes out minus 100 to minus 400 fines for microfine material, which is saved from being lost to a waste pond.

“It’s the first time such a configuration has been created for the portable market in North America,” says Matt Voigt, manager of portable plants at Superior. “We incorporated our low-profile dewatering screens and a series of hydraulically-powered components to ensure the plant is road permissible and quick to deploy.”

Applications for the new portable plant include operations with settling ponds, crushed aggregate, sand and gravel, dredging and frac sand.
