Washing Unit

The new W.S. Tyler Haver Hydro-Clean washing unit effectively cleans deleterious material from aggregate, industrial minerals and metals, while reducing water consumption by up to 75 percent over traditional log washers, according to the company. The washing unit can take a maximum feed material size of up to 6 in. (150 mm) into its vertical drum. The Hydro-Clean employs high-pressure nozzles, rotating at 90 rpm, to spray up to 90 percent recycled water on the material with pressures up to 2,900 psi (200 bars). Depending on model size and application, the washing unit can remove silt and clay particles as small as 63 microns from mineral mixtures and, with its short retention times can process up to 400 tph. The Hydro-Clean consumes little water (from 27 to 211 gpm) and power (no higher than 300 hp/225 kW). The unit is available in four model sizes that produce 20 to 400 tph, depending on application.
