New option for washing crusher fines capacity

Superior Industries, Inc. introduces its new solution for processing crusher fines right next to the crushing circuit, the Alliance Low Water Washer. The unit accepts a dry feed directly from the crushing circuit and processes material into a higher value manufactured sand. It is said to use up to 80 percent less water than the traditional screw/screen combination. An agitator section is positioned at the front end of the screen where water is added to the dry feed and mixed, producing a thick slurry. The slurry is then dumped onto a dewatering screen with a series of spray bars to help clean and wash out the fines. The end result is a saleable manufactured sand with approximately 8 percent moisture content. The unit processes up to 300 tons per hour, with an option for custom-designed machines for higher throughput.

High height portable screen plant

Irock’s TS-512 tracked screening plant, suitable for small and medium production needs, features two two-bearing decks, a 12- by 5-foot top deck, and a 10-foot, 4-inch by 5-foot bottom deck. Interchangeable screen media offers versatility over end product size. The unit has a 12-cubic-yard hopper and a Cat Tier 3 engine that allows the screen to process up to 400 tons per hour. Its three conveyors sort up to three product sizes into stockpiles 16 feet, 5 inches high, which the manufacturer says is the tallest in the industry. Components are hydraulically powered for quick setup and teardown.

Mill separates, cleans, and polishes sand

Superior Industries, Inc., launches its new Attrition Mill as part of its line of washing and classifying machinery. The machine provides a solution for sand applications, including disintegration of conglomerates, material separation, and surface cleaning and polishing. The mill features urethane-coated tank and propellers, as well as round tubs to eliminate swirling or corner material collection. A large, watertight sealed door eases maintenance by eliminating the heavy lifting that comes with drive removal. Powered by a 50-horsepower engine, the machine is said to provide capacities ranging from 75 to 120 tons per hour in a quiet, energy-efficient machine.
