Weir Minerals unveiled a new sand washing plant.

The Linatex-lined plant is designed to produce more saleable product than conventional sand screw plants, the company says, with fewer moving parts and a process that produces a drier product with less fines.

“We know the most important thing for quarry operators in washing is recovering as much sand as possible to maximize their sales, which is why we’ve designed an integrated solution for washing their product with a hydrocyclone, which can deliver greater recovery than sand screws,” says Bruce Cooke, global product manager at Weir Minerals. “In addition, every component has been selected by our expert engineers for its long service life, interoperability and ease of maintenance.”

The sand wash plant features a range of Weir Minerals equipment designed for sand and aggregate applications, including Warman WGR pumps, Cavex hydrocyclones, Enduron dewatering screens, Linatex hoses and Isogate knife gate valves.

The Warman WGR combines hydraulic design with an adjustable impeller and a wet end, designed to make replacement predictable and cost-effective, according to the company.

Linatex premium rubber is used for wear zones throughout the plant. Cavex hydrocyclones have a 360-degree laminar spiral, designed to deliver more saleable product than a sand screw solution would, according to Weir Minerals. Enduron dewatering screens separate product, while Isogate knife gate valves contribute to the plant’s maintenance.

Weir Minerals has a product range incorporating brands such as Warman centrifugal slurry pumps, GEHO PD slurry pumps, Linatex rubber products, Vulco wear resistant mill linings, Cave- hydrocyclones, Trio crushers and screens, Enduron comminution equipment, Isogate slurry valves, Multiflo mine dewatering solutions, and Lewis pumps.
