As demand for more stringent material specifications grows and quarries progress further into their reserves, the need to wash aggregate materials increases. The Aggredry washer, distributed in New Zealand by MIMICO, is a combination of fine material washer and dewatering screen in a single machine, and is the ideal solution.

Traditionally, incorporating processes such as washing and dewatering into your job sites could create some common inconveniences.

"Processing wet material means you often need additional time for it to dry," says Garth Taylor, MIMICO’s crushing and screening business manager.

"That extra time means delaying the reclamation of the stockpile, while extra space is needed for the drying inventory.

"The Aggredry washer solves this problem by both washing and drying the material, instantly producing saleable material with moisture content as low as eight percent."

Instantly saleable sand

The Aggredry washer’s screw removes clay, dirt, and crusher dust from your sand. This silt-laden water is washed out the backside while the saleable aggregate is carried and discharged to the integrated dewatering screen.

"Any remaining water is separated, resulting in moisture content as low as eight percent when the material hits the stockpile," explains Taylor. "From there, there’s no need to wait. You can transfer the fresh material directly to stockpile or the customer’s truck."

Often the material fines generated as a result of dewatering are lost with the wastewater leading to product loss.

"These fines can become an aggravating waste product that goes right down the drain. To solve this issue, minus quarter millimetre sand is collected below the Aggredry washer’s screen in an under flume and is reintroduced back into the sand screw via a patented water jet," says Garth.

This process saves three percent of the material from being re-routed to the waste pond which, in turn, provides more product to sell.
