Terex Washing Systems (TWS) recently hosted the USA premiere of the Terex® Aggresand™ wash plant in North Carolina, following the success of the Ireland launch in September 2013. The event took place at the Carolina Sunrock facility in Kittrell, North Carolina, where TWS worked with Mid-Atlantic distributor, Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic, to stage the 3-day event.
“This is the first machine of its kind in this market and the interest has been phenomenal. The event has proved to be a real success and we are already witnessing increased activity in this marketplace,” said Sean Loughran, Director of TWS.
The Aggresand™ concept, the newest modular aggregate and sand washing plant, was introduced to the world of aggregate washing late last year. The Aggresand ™ plant showcased at Kittrell, NC, featured a 200 tph twin sand plant compared to the first Aggresand™ plant launched in Ireland, which had 120 tph twin sand plants. TWS can offer two sand plant options, 120 tph or 200 tph, dependent on the customer’s application and the sand-to-stone ratio. The modular wash plant brings together aggregate and sand washing on one modular chassis, producing three aggregates and two types of sand on one machine.
Sunrock Quarry’s willingness to try innovative products and processes, coupled with TWS distributor, Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic, afforded TWS the opportunity to host the event. The local geology of Sunrock Kittrell Quarry is granite, which made the demonstration more significant, since high wear issues are more prevalent in this situation. Poly screens were opted for in place of the typical woven wire screen mesh and the Aggresand™ wash plant was more than capable of dealing with this raw material.
Terex Washing Systems recently announced details of the new larger wash plant within the Aggresand™ range at CONEXPO, the Aggresand™ 206, due to be officially launched at Hillhead in June 2014.
This larger Aggresand™ model shares all the unique modular features of the smaller Aggresand™ 165 model launched in 2013, including ease of transportation, rapid set-up time, pre-wired and pre-plumbed components and an HMI control system, which have been delivering efficient, productive performance for current owners.
