Water reduction, better saleability benefits of washing system

By |  March 13, 2014

W.S. Tyler President Karen Thompson walked members of the press through the features of the company’s Hydro-Clean washing system during a March 6 briefing at ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas.

According to Thompson, the Hydro-Clean is available in three model sizes: a 350, 1,000 and 2,000. The now-portable unit operates from high-pressure waterpower and is effective removing clay, she says. Thompson also laid out advantages of the W.S. Tyler system over traditional log washers.

“[The Hydro-Clean] can use 70 percent less water than a log washer,” she says. “This offers a very small footprint, whereas a log washer is three times the weight of an HC 1000.”

Thompson referenced one aggregate producer during the briefing, Dun-Rite Sand & Gravel in New Jersey, that’s improved the saleability of its material with an HC 1000.

“Material is being sold much cheaper than it needs to be,” Thompson says, noting that the Hydro-Clean is a system that can help to improve profitability and efficiencies for users.

Immediately following the press briefing, W.S. Tyler hosted an Oktoberfest event at the Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas. A complimentary Bavarian buffet and German beer were included, and attendees had the opportunity to enter a photo booth and have their picture appear on the cover of Pit & Quarry.
