Weir Minerals has released the Weir Minerals Sand Wash Plant, a complete sand wash solution drawing on Weir Minerals' experience in the sand and aggregate industry. The Linatex lined plant produces more saleable product than conventional sand screw plants, with fewer moving parts and an optimized process that produces a drier, higher-quality 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. In addition, every component has been selected by our expert engineers for its long-service life, interoperability and ease of maintenance." says Bruce Cooke, Global Product Manager of Sand Wash Plants.

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

The Warman WGR is useful in the sand extraction industry, combining  a hydraulic design with an adjustable impeller, long bearing life and a simplified wet end, making replacement predictable and cost effective.

Precision moulded and lined, Linatex premium rubber is used for wear zones throughout the plant due to its proven wear performance in wet sand applications in operations around the world.

Cavex hydrocyclones provide classification efficiency thanks to their unique 360° laminar spiral, delivering more saleable product than a sand screw solution would.

Enduron dewatering screens reliably separate product with a high degree of efficiency, while robust Isogate knife gate valves contribute to the plant's straightforward maintenance.  

Weir Minerals sand wash plants are now available for customers in all regions.
