McLanahan Launches Ultrawash

For more than 180 years, McLanahan has been designing and manufacturing washing and crushing equipment. Now, they are putting their proven, well-established solutions into modular, containerized systems. McLanahan showed them to the market for the first time at bauma 2019.

UltraWASH 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.
