Washing and Classifying Equipment
Phoenix Process Equipment
Wash plant thickener
Phoenix Process Equipment Co. says its Model US ultra-high-rate thickener for sand wash plant slurries features no moving parts, minimal space requirements, high underflow solids, and complete factory assembly. The company says other benefits include minimum capital investment, lower installation cost, site-to-site mobility, no mechanical maintenance, and a reduced pond storage area. Pilot units are available for on-site field demonstrations.
Compact, energy conscious
Powerscreen says its compact Finesmasters are today’s most efficient, cost effective, and energy-conscious units on the market. The systems have been engineered for quick installation and feature three key elements: sump and rubber lined slurry pump, rubber-lined hydro cyclones, and high-frequency dewatering screen. The unit uses centrifugal force within the cyclone to remove clays, silts, and slime from sand to bring it into specification.
Built to order
Process Machinery, Inc. works with each customer to design and deliver built-to-order washing and classifying plants. The company says it builds the structures that support screens and screws, chute work, blending gates, rollaway chutes for screen access, etc., making it possible to deliver a complete and personalized plant package to each customer.
Sturtevant Inc. says its air classifiers balance the physical principles of centrifugal force, drag force, and gravity to generate a high-precision method of classifying particles according to size and density. The whirlwind air classifier handles feed capacities from 1 to 800 tons per hour with a screen fineness of 100 to 400 mesh. A superfine air classifier is available in 3- and 6-foot-diameter models with feed capacities from 0.5 to 15 tons per hour. The side draft air classifier handles feed capacities from 4 to 1,000 tons per hour with a screen fineness of 100 to 400 mesh.
