Sand Plant

The Ultra Sand Plant from McLanahan consists primarily of a slurry pump, a separator and a dewatering screen. The system is an alternative means of processing sand that offers higher yield (3 to 5 percent), improved product consistency and superior product dryness when compared to conventional wash equipment like fine material screw washers, according to the company. The Ultra Sand Plant can be set up to make both coarse and fine sand products simultaneously. A gate can be utilized to blend the sands together – allowing for control of the final product’s FM (Fineness Modulus). The McLanahan Separator is critical to the successful operation of the Ultra Sand Plant. The rubber-lined, vacuum-assisted cyclone separates valuable solids from undesirable fine sand, silts and clays. The Ultra Sand Plant is available in fixed, modular and mobile configuration and can be used for washing, organics removal and fines recovery. McLanahan Corporation,
