In the UK, Superior Industries will showcase its new modular wash plant at Hillhead 2018, from 26-28 June. Called Spirit Sand Plant, the solution merges the manufacturer’s Helix Cyclone, dewatering screen, sump tank and slurry pump into a single plant capable of sand production, fines recovering and dewatering.
Superior says its Helix Cyclone is designed with a geometrically efficient inlet, which helps boost performance and lower wear to internal components. Additionally, all wetted surfaces are lined with cast polyurethane for extended performance and life.
For fines recovery applications, the platform is available in 305-406mm models. Sand production models range in size from 406-762mm.
The dewatering screen, according to Superior, can remove all but 8% of moisture content through a deeper bed design and urethane sidewalls, which remove moisture from the material screens at the tops and sides. These high tonnage dewatering screens are intended to process material up to 360 metric tons per hour (MTPH).
In sand production applications, Spirit Sand Plants are manufactured in five models with production up to 300 MTPH from the screen. Seven ultra fines recovery models can be fed at rates from 20-161 MTPH. Each plant is designed with the intention of being able to fit into standard shipping containers.
