Terex Washing Systems (TWS) will exhibit at ConExpo-Con/Agg at the Terex stand in the Silver Lot (Booth S5435) of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

TWS plans to launch the FM Pentium at the March 14-18 show in Las Vegas. The company says the FM Pentium is an innovative and versatile washing solution that has the capability to wash one grade of sand and one aggregate on a single chassis. According to TWS, the FM Pentium can be used in the quarrying and recycling sectors and offers a small footprint and a high throughput rate.

“ConExpo is one of the key shows in the North American calendar and is the perfect platform for us to showcase our new innovations and products to what is a crucial market for us,” says Barry McMenamin, director at TWS. “The FM Pentium is the first of its kind as a revolutionary static sand and aggregate-washing unit, with its increased production and versatility.

“The machine combines a collection tank, centrifugal slurry pump, hydrocyclones and a dewatering screen,” he adds. “With a feed rate of up to 150 tph of pre-screened material, the FM Pentium can produce up to 120 tph of washed sand.

Precise end product

The FM Pentium features a twin 12-ft. x 5-ft. screen arrangement producing a washed aggregate and a washed sand. TWS says the FM Pentium washing unit increases the efficiency with which quarries can wash sand and aggregates, positioning them to wash pre-sized mixed sands and aggregates and discharging two saleable products.

“Normally when washing aggregates, quarry businesses would have to wash sand off as slurry, either treating the sand later or wasting it if they didn’t want to reclaim it,” McMenamin says. “With the FM Pentium, that process can be skipped, as the sand can be washed away from the aggregate and then graded and screened as a separate product. Effectively, for operations that are processing both aggregates and sand, it’s cutting down on time which could be utilized elsewhere.”
