Terex Washing Systems (TWS) were delighted to use North America’s largest tradeshow, CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 in Las Vegas, Nev., as the platform to announce the introduction of Terex AquaClear, Water Management Solutions, as part of TWS new product offering.
TWS Director, Oliver Donnelly, commented, ‘It really is an exciting time for TWS and we are delighted to be able to offer an end-to-end solution for washing and water management from TWS, a single supplier. We are launching a full range of water management products to include clarifying tanks, flocculent dosing systems, filter presses and all associated equipment to provide a one stop solution.”
Efficient Water Solutions
Water Management Solutions are made up from three main components; a floc dosing plant and thickener tank can be used to recycle up to 80% of the water used in the washing process. This basic method still involves the use of ponds but on a smaller scale as the sludge sent to the ponds is of a much higher specific gravity (1.5sg). The next stage is to incorporate a filter press which hydrates this thickened even further typically down to 25% moisture. The filter press eliminates the need for ponds as the sludge is hydrated to a material/cake which can be handled by a loading shovel. This cake can be used as a lining or capping material.
Raising the Bar
TWS are committed to continuous expansion of their product offering and this entry into Water Management demonstrates the continued significant investment in product development by TWS which once again raises the bar in adding value to our customers operations. TWS will commence manufacture of the Water Management Solutions in Northern Ireland later this year, working alongside Aggregate Machinery Inc (AMI) who are located in Portland, Oregon, whom they have a strategic alliance with.
The Icing on the Cake
TWS are also investing in a focused technical team to support the new Terex AquaClear Water Management offering and to that end are appointing a dedicated team consisting of a product manager, engineers and applications specialists together with a cutting edge new laboratory specifically designed for material testing and sample pressing. This will ensure optimum equipment selection and specification for our customers.
TWS are already a leading established supplier of advanced wet processing solutions for mineral washing needs in aggregates, recycling, industrial sands & mining and they offer an extensive product portfolio to match the needs of rinsing, scrubbing and sand production systems available in static, modular and mobile platforms.
