Global wet processing specialist CDE will use CONEXPO-CON/AGG (on 7-11 March 2017) to unveil its latest innovation, the CDE M5500 wash plant that can produce up to 550 t per hour of washed materials on a single chassis.
“In 2017, CDE is upping the stakes by unveiling a powerful high-tech sand washing plant, says Kevin Vallelly, head of Product Development at CDE. “CONEXPO 2017 is the ideal launching pad for an innovative washing solution that will answer materials washing operators’ needs for more efficient, user-friendly, economical and powerful equipment.”
The latest addition to the M-Series combines feeding, screening, washing and stockpiling onto one chassis, and packs an extra punch with unique features. These include a higher capacity of 550 t per hour, a five-product capability and triple pass cyclone sand washing.
Adapted to applications in both dry and wet screening situations across a wide range of materials, the new CDE Infinity technology will also be of particular interest to operators looking for sturdier and more economical vibrating screens. “CONEXPO 2017 offers an ideal platform to launch our new Infinity screen range. We sell over 200 screens every year to the global market, either as part of the modular equipment that we have become well known or as stand-alone,” says Neil Mullan, design engineer at CDE.
“The new weld-free Infinity screens can generate the same acceleration as conventional screens with less weight, resulting in a reduction in power consumption and in operational costs, which presents significant benefits to our clients’ operations.”
According to CDE, its materials washing equipment allows for more accurate material classification than traditional sand washing methods, higher quality washed sand, reduced costs of pond excavation and reduced risks on site. The final product exits the plant ready for use, having been dewatered to 15% moisture.
“Year after year, CDE keeps adapting to the evolving market demand for even more high-tech, cost-saving, user and environmentally-friendly materials washing solutions for operators in the construction, mining, industrial sands and recycling sectors,” says Tony Convery, president and founder of CDE.
“The company’s sustained investment in research and development seems to have paid off and the production and quality standards that the new M5500 sets bring an exciting alternative to existing equipment on the market.”
