CDE to Showcase Wet Processing Technology

CDE will launch the latest in its range of Combo all-in-one wet processing solutions at ConExpo-Con/Agg, March 10-14 in Las Vegas, booth S-5435.

CDECDE’s wet processing technologies, and specifically its Combo range, support materials producers to gain competitive advantage in their markets by not only maximizing the volume of resources, but also their commercial value.

To maximize profitability CDE has engineered its wet processing solutions to minimize inefficiencies and optimize plant processes.

With almost total independence of water supply, the Combo can recycle up to 90% of process water for immediate recirculation and re-use with the system, meaning it requires on a small top-up water supply compared to traditional systems which typically consume 10 to 15 times more water requiring significant investment in water reserves, supply and infrastructure.

Its modular approach means the Combo can be easily relocated closer to where concrete is required, resulting in significant cost savings in the transport of aggregates while also minimizing emissions associated with transporting the material.

Powered by sustainable all-electric drives, the Combo is an energy-efficient system. This means materials producers can ensure their plant is running at optimum utilization, processing higher volumes of material for exceptional return on investment.

The Combo is modular and occupies a very small footprint. It arrives on site ready to plug and play for rapid on-site commissioning and easy relocation to other sites or remote locations.

Kevin Vallelly, director of engineering at CDE, said, “Time spent on site is a costly exercise, whereas the factory setting is a low-cost environment. As such, CDE’s single-chassis engineering and rapid assembly design results in significant installation cost savings as its commissioning requires fewer bodies, installation equipment and infrastructure.”

“The footprint of the Combo is around 30% smaller than the traditional wet processing setup too,” Kevin explained. “This further reduces initial set-up costs as less site engineering – or minimal foundations – is required, including concrete pads and pipework.”
