Superior Industries Inc., an American-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, says its presence at bauma 2019 will be three-times larger than previous editions of the world's largest trade show. Today, the builder of crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment unveiled its display plans.
Inside Hall B2 at stand 107, Superior plans to showcase its brand new Alliance Low Water Washer. The one-of-a-kind technology allows crushing operators to wash fines within their crushing circuit. It saves from transporting the fines to a separate wash site, which requires costly trucks and harmful re-handling of the material.
Available for production rates of 90 – 272 mtph (100 – 300 tph), the Alliance Low Water Washer accepts a dry feed from the crushing circuit. An agitator converts the material to a slurry before an integrated dewatering screen removes excess water, leaving as little as eight percent moisture in the discharged manufactured sand. Superior says existing units have required as little 45 – 90 cubic metres/hour of water (200 – 400 gpm), depending on production rates. That's significantly less water consumption than a traditional screw or cyclone.
