Weir Minerals has announced the Weir Minerals Sand Wash Plant, a sand wash solution. The Linatex® lined plant produces a product with fewer moving parts and an optimised process that produces a drier product with fewer fines.

The solution has been used at sites such as Coimbatore Minerals in Tamil Nadu, India, where a custom-built Sand Wash Plant reduced their total cost of ownership by 51%, while offering a 23% reduction in fines that helped their product consistently meet the industry’s high standards for a saleable product.

“We know the most important thing for quarry operators in washing is recovering as much sand as possible to maximise their sales, which is why we’ve designed an integrated solution for washing their product, with a hydrocyclone which can deliver greater recovery than sand screws. In addition, every component has been selected by our expert engineers for its long-service life, interoperability and ease of maintenance,” said Bruce Cooke, Global Product Manager – Sand Wash Plants.

“For the new sand wash plant, we focused on making it quick and easy for quarry operators to get up and running. Its straightforward design means it can be assembled in just two days while its compact skids make it easy to drag into any operation. Efficient, reliable and easily integrated into flowsheets, we think the plant is a game changer for quarry owners,” said Surendra Menon, President, Weir Minerals India.
