Terex Washing Systems (TWS) is celebrating the first birthday of the Terex® AggreSand™ 165 washplant following the official launch in Ireland in September 2013. A lot has been achieved in the last year, with the successful installation of the AggreSand™ 165 washplant in five continents across ten countries, processing up to 10 million t.
“The market has really embraced the AggreSand™ washplant concept with exceptional demand at the moment. To date, TWS has installed multiple AggreSand™ 165 washplants around the globe. We are constantly looking at innovative ways to further enhance and develop our existing products so we can continue to meet the individual needs of our customers,” commented Garry Stewart, Application Team Lead, TWS.
TWS hosted a number of events in 2013 to officially launch the AggreSand™ 165 in both Ireland and USA. The AggreSand™ 165 was also displayed as part of a double bill at the recent Hillhead 2014 show in the UK. The most recent event to showcase the AggreSand™ 165 was at the first of several planned open days in 2014 in the Australia market. The event was hosted by Dubbo Sands, NSW, Australia, on 30 – 31 July 2014 where the plant was recently installed. Owners Mardi and Graham Colbran, commented: “The professionalism and dedication from TWS and Mineral Washing Systems (one of TWS Australian distributors), starting with purchasing right through to commissioning has been outstanding; we feel that there is nothing else currently on the market, that even comes close. We chose the AggreSand™ 165 washplant for ease of setup, having the ability to minimise disruption to our site. Our AggreSand™ 165 washplant incorporates the Pre Wash system, which enables us to bring our sand into spec in just one pass, whilst producing three aggregates, giving us a very cost effective operation. The quality of design and construction of this plant is easily seen, a lot of thought has gone into access for servicing to pumps, screens and the controls, including remote operation from the loader, all of which are user friendly; this plant demonstrates what washing sand should be: “easy”. We are positive ours will be the first of many hitting Australian shores.”
The introduction of the AggreSand ™ 165 concept was in response to both changes in the marketplace and customer demands. It consists of the AggreSand ™ 165 washplant (up to 250 tph) model and the larger capacity AggreSand™ 206 washplant (up to 400 tph). Central to the development of the AggreSand ™ concept was modular design, serviceability and functionality, making it quick and easy to set up and easy to maintain. Customers also benefit from the unique design, which includes full containerisation of the machine for ease of transportation, rapid set up time, pre-wired and pre-plumbed plug and play componentry, isolated spray bars and a simple automated control system, all of which have been delivering efficient, productive performance for current owners.
The ongoing TWS commitment to meeting customers’ needs saw the introduction of another new product in 2014, the AggreScrub™ 150, designed to operate both as a stand-alone unit as well as having the ability to seamlessly integrate with the AggreSand™. The AggreScrub™ 150 is designed to deal with stubborn clay bound material that cannot be removed by rinsing or screening alone. The AggreScrub™ product is shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘World Demolition Awards 2014’, in the ‘Innovation – Series Product’ category. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 7 November. The Terex® Aggwash™ plant was the winner of this particular category in 2010.
The introduction of three new products over the last year demonstrates the ongoing TWS commitment to meeting customers’ needs through providing pioneering ways to wash sand, gravel, aggregates, wood and C&D waste. As a result of this growth and in response to market demands, TWS has expanded the team globally to provide a full and dedicated line of support for the TWS distributor network and customers.
“We are delighted to continually welcome new talented and skilled team members to the TWS team. The experience they bring will ensure TWS offers the same quality support and services locally as well as in our other centres of excellence in the USA and India,” noted Product Line Director for TWS, Sean Loughran.
TWS looks forward to more successful months and years ahead and will continue to focus on introducing further innovative solutions for quarry, aggregate, mining and C&D recycling industries.
