  Washing & Screening
Semi-Portable Options
Semi-portable sand sections are ideal for producers with multiple sites.
Semi-portable sand sections are designed with a water scalping-classifying tank and two fine material washers. Semi- portable sand sections wash, dewater and classify material with a water scalping-classifying tank and two fine material washers that offer the same capabilities and capacities as stationary water scalping-classifying tanks and fine material washers.
Semi-portable sand sections come with their own structure that moves with them as your operation requires. There is no need to build a structure around the equipment each time you move it to a new site. The compact, sectionalized design of a semi-portable sand section makes it ideal for installations where height is a concern. It also allows for easy removal when the producer is finished at one site. Semi-portable plants can be lifted onto a trailer with a crane and transported to the new site.
Tripling production with Eagle Tank
Tucakhoe Sand and Gravel produces numerous aggregate materials, including concrete sand, various types of golf sands, and gravels used for drainage and landscaping. Based in a competitive market, Tuckahoe needs to produce high- quality materials at prices their customers can afford. However, with two small, aging plants, they were not able to meet their productivity goals, and sales were suffering.
“Production was the problem,” said Tuckahoe plant manager Ron Sutton. “We just weren’t able to increase inventory and maintain production and supply our customers.”
Tuckahoe did not have belt scales on their old plant, but Sutton estimates their production was under 100 tons per hour at times.
Eagle Iron Works supplied Tuckahoe with a new wash plant that includes two 10’ x 40’ Eagle Iron Works Classifying Tanks for separating and blending pre-screened material into three different products and two 54” x 34’ Double Screw Fine Material Washers for washing, classifying, and dewatering those products before stockpiling.
After installing the new Eagle Iron Works wash plant, Tuckahoe tripled their production to 300 tons per hour.
“The Eagle Iron Works Classifying Tanks allow us to fine-tune the products that we’re producing,” Sutton said. “If one of those products becomes too coarse, we can then put that extra material to the third product to keep an eye on it and maintain the quality we’re looking for.”
