McLanahan Launches UltraCRUSH, UltraWASH

For more than 180 years, McLanahan has been designing and manufacturing washing and crushing equipment. Now, the company is putting its proven, well-established solutions into modular, containerized systems and are showing them to the market, offering UltraCRUSH and UltraWASH.

UltraCRUSH BaumaThe UltraWASH is capable of making three aggregate and two sand products while accepting capacities up to 400 tph. It has both a single process water feed point and a single effluent discharge point. The modular design is containerized, leading to a compact footprint.

All modular systems from McLanahan come pre-wired and pre-plumbed for rapid on-site deployment or relocation. They are available in a variety of configurations, including double washing and prewashing, and come with fully integrated controls with remote operation.

For the UltraWASH, specifically, the system includes several features to simplify maintenance and maximize production. The underpan of the sizing screen features a patent-pending fines forward slide. This steel tray spans the width of the bottom deck of the sizing screen and facilitates the diversion of a proportion of raw fines into the coarse sand processing stream to help balance downstream equipment and optimize plant capacity. It also permits the alterations of the proportions of fine and coarse deck areas above while precluding entry of coarse material into the fines processing stream.

A patent-pending EZE-Riser lifting pedal and locking mechanism allows for simplified feed pipe disconnection and the needed clearance for pump removal when maintenance is required. The pumps can then roll out easily onto the pump trolley system, which for additional clearance for easier access during maintenance.

Thanks to McLanahan’s recent acquisition of Anaconda Equipment, the UltraWASH feed hopper and conveyor can be upgraded to come with tracks for easier conveyor maintenance.

The UltraWASH line is available with several configurations and add-ons including:

  • Feed preparation – log washers, blade mills, screw washers.
  • Attritioning.
  • Organics removal.
  • Water treatment – filter presses and thickeners.

Additionally, material can be sized to meet specific requirements using the line of UltraCRUSH equipment. The UltraCRUSH modular cone crusher is also containerized, easy to set up and install, and can be transported around the site or to other locations as needed.

The UltraCRUSH modular cone crusher is manufactured with a heavy-duty cast steel base frame and includes replaceable base frame wear liners. It features a rotating bowl for even liner wear, a bronze inner and outer eccentric bushings for more load carrying capability, and a large, unobstructed feed opening. A hydropneumatic tramp iron relief system reduces wear on the crusher in the event an uncrushable material enters the crushing chamber.
