Metso will provide the crushing and screening equipment and CDE Asia will provide the wet classification equipment required in the manufactured sand production process.
Kamal Pahuja, vice president, mining and aggregates, Metso India. said: “This new marketing cooperation agreement allows the customers to acquire the whole process easily, and at the same time forms a good platform for future growth for both Metso and CDE Asia in India.”
Manish Bhartia, managing director, CDE Asia said the agreement with Metso presents new opportunities.
“The combination of Metso’s and CDE Asia’s sustainable technologies produces well shaped, washed and graded manufactured sand, helping to replace natural sand, which is fast becoming scarce and expensive,” he said.
“This collaboration will benefit the sand manufacturers by providing best-in-quality graded sand and sustainable operations by reusing up to 95% of water used. By utilising normally low-value crusher fines for sand production, we can extend the life of natural resources and also add huge commercial value to our customer’s enterprise.”
