Superior Industries has introduced a new modular wash plant that merges the manufacturer’s Helix Cyclone, Dewatering Screen, sump tank and slurry pump into a single plant.
Known as the Spirit Sand Plant, the flexible plant is capable of sand production, fines recovery and dewatering.
According to Superior industries, it’s Helix Cyclone is uniquely designed with a geometrically efficient inlet, which boosts performance and reduces wear on internal components. In addition, all wet surfaces are lined with cast polyurethane for extended performance and life.
For fines recovery applications, the Helix Cyclone is designed and built by Superior in 305 mm to 406 mm models. As well, sand production models are available in sizes of 406 mm to 762 mm.
The manufacturer’s dewatering screen is capable of removing all but 8 per cent of moisture content, meaning the sand produced is available to sell immediately.
According to the company, the screen achieves this due to a deeper bed design and urethane sidewalls, which remove moisture from the material screens at the tops and sides. These high tonnage dewatering screens process material at speeds of up to 360 tonnes per hour.
For sand production applications, Spirit Sand Plants are manufactured in five models with production up to 300 tonnes per hour from the screen.
As well, seven ultra fines recovery models can be fed at rates from 20 tonnes per hour to 161 tonnes per hour. For easy transportation, each plant is designed to fit into standard shipping containers.
Superior Industries is a United States-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems.
