Producing High Quality Industrial Sand

Ashphalt Sand Production Dewatering Screen and Dryer

This Sand Production Equipment produces a clean and dry Industrial Sand that contains less than 2% minus 200 mesh at a rate of 150-175 t/h.

In this system, slurry is pumped up to two 18″ maximum density separator units. These units provide a nominal cut point at the 200 mesh (75 micron) level.  The newly recovered material is then fed to the hi-capacity dewatering screen at 50-52% solids by weight.

The linear motion and high “G” forces of the screen, along with the 1.4mm urethane screen panels, dewaters the sand to a remarkable 90% solids by weight.  Dual spray bars on the dewatering screen cleans the sand of fines, which increases the value of the product.

The Derrick® Fines Recovery System was installed to recovery as much of the fines as possible discharging prior to entering the settling pond.  This was to lessen the continuous pond maintenance costs.  The dryer recovers down to the 400/500 mesh level and dewaters this fraction down to a very dry 80% solids.
